I don't understand that logic either. However, I think it's just because there is symbolism involved, since lingerie usually has to do with sexy times, so prudish people will get all worked up about it. Bikini clad females turn me on just as much as lingerie on a girl, so im really not sure why. xD
In theory there is no difference, but bikinis are made a little more fancy so they appear as a dress and not underwear. By the way, nobody objects when you wear a sport slip and sport bra, and the difference with lingerie is also small there.
I strongly believe that women in lingerie turn me on a lot more than bikini. I will still have enough will power to look at their faces with bikinis (even though I still fail at random), lingerie would be instant kill to my will power. I wouldn't be able to stop staring and having thoughts.
I think society has standards depending on time, place and circumstance... a bikini in the summer near a beach, pool, other would be acceptable... lingerie while you're at home is fine, as it's more for private occasions, apparently. I don't really care too much about societal norms as I like seeing either on a girl...
Its all about context. Showing nipples on man vs woman in public. It's also like why can a man go topless at the beach but not the supermarket. Lingerie usually is a little more revealing than a padded thick fabric bikini. Sorry if this bothers you. You are more than welcome to walk around naked around me.
you have a good argument there. both shows enough skin to turn a guy on or be sexual. But lingerie i believe dont hide the breast nipples, etc and shows much more in public places than society is ready to accept
In Las Vegas, prostitutes do wear nothing but lingerie on the streets. I think since it is considered underwear, it is meant to go underneath your clothes. Bikinis are swimsuits so it is a bit different. I honestly would not want to walk around on the street in nothing but a bra and panties because I don't want to attract a possible sexual assault.
