Is it THAT bad to wear socks durring sex?

Asked by jamzzy (885 points ) February 14th, 2009

In the middle of everything, my significant other points out that i sometimes wear them. She wasn’t saying anything bad about it she just asked why…i said because they’re warm and fuzzy…

And!!! they can protect her from being scratched by overly long toenails.

I don’t see a problem with wearing socks during sex. If my feet are cold, I wear socks!

jamzzy's avatar

even my big fuzzy new york giants socks!?

asmonet's avatar

Dudes look flippin’ retarded when they have socks on.

Mind The Sock Gap!

I read a line in a novel once about it being so cold in Siberia that people wear socks during sex. I think that means people who don’t live in Siberia don’t typically wear them when they “do it”. Do you live in Siberia?

johnny0313x's avatar

I would think the socks were kinda kinky…as long as they are clean lol….Hell I’d throw on some chucks for the next time

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

Yes. It’s THAT bad.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Why would it be bad at all unless you were using a sock for a condom? That could be really bad. Or interesting depending on what someone might like.

jamzzy's avatar

i love the mixed answers…

aprilsimnel's avatar

(<———- Giggling at the mental image of her last fella in fuzzy socks and nothing else.)

Grisson's avatar

Ok… lose the socks. Go with spats.

fireside's avatar

I usually like to wear my spurs.
Don’t know why that seems to be a problem.

TaoSan's avatar

Funny, looks hot on chicks :)

@fireside
Yeeeeehaw!

wundayatta's avatar

Look, I wasn’t going to say this, but, well, it’s kind of important. There’s an itsy bitsy teeny weeny problem with wearing socks during sex. It’s only that…

THE ENTIRE KNOWN WORLD WILL IMPLODE IN 5 SECONDS IF YOU DO IT!

janbb's avatar

Only if it turns her off.

TaoSan's avatar

I guess it’s the same category as guys should take their shirts off before the undies!

Imagine a guy in socks and turtleneck but no skivvies rofl

marinelife's avatar

Depends on how cold it is.

fireside's avatar

Yeah baby, that’s my preferred attire for sex.
Turtleneck, Black socks and a condom.
Wonder why I don’t have a date tonight…

TaoSan's avatar

GLOW IN THE DARK CONDOM of course lmao

oh oh oh no one of those with a rooster head for a tip hahaaaa

loser's avatar

Socks are okay with a glow in the dark condom only if you’re wearing a wife-beater.

Jayne's avatar

Socks?! Haven’t you learned anything about safe sex? Imagine the damage, not to mention the indignity, if you should slip and fall while doing the naughty!

shilolo's avatar

@Jayne has a good point. Traction can be important and socks are not the best for that purpose. Plus, if your feet are cold during sex, you just aren’t working hard enough. Got to get that circulation going…

Jeruba's avatar

Take ‘em off. It’s like you took off everything you had to for the purpose, and then stopped. As if it were about being pragmatic, and never mind the effect on her. Look. You can’t look sexy when you’re stripped out of everything but your socks. Socks are really dopey little garments anyhow, and even the word is silly. You just can’t say “sock” and be serious about it. You really, really don’t want to be getting down to business with her while there’s a little thought balloon over her head that’s saying “Gosh, he looks goofy with nothing on but his socks.”

Jayne's avatar

@Jeruba; Wait…you mean goofy isn’t sexy? So that’s why…I may have to rethink my strategy here.

fireside's avatar

What if the socks had little traction pads on the bottom?
Would it be okay then?

Bluefreedom's avatar

And what if you were standing in really deep, pink shag carpet? That would help with traction wouldn’t it?

Jayne's avatar

@fireside; I just don’t think I could feel comfortably with myself while wearing socks with little traction pads. Just…no.

@Bluefreedom; Ah, but the static, don’t forget the static (not that there’s anything wrong with liking electric shocks during sex, mind you).

susanc's avatar

No Socks! But:

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Jayne. Good point. That would put a little spark in the relationship wouldn’t it? (Sorry, I couldn’t resist it)

El_Cadejo's avatar

If your pants and underwear are off, your socks should be too. Else you just look stupid and kinda funny.

augustlan's avatar

Once you’ve been married for years, it won’t really matter. Before then…NO SOCKS!

peedub's avatar

My ex-girlfriend used to slay me for this regularly. I admit it was pure laziness, but what’s the big deal? She shouldn’t be paying attention to my feet-gear anyways.

chelseababyy's avatar

Who cares what’s on your feet when you’re down and dirty doing the deed?
Unless of course, you have a foot fetish.

SherlockPoems's avatar

Well it seems to me that socks would make it kinda difficult to umm ‘fit’ and would not be really ‘safe sex’ so just stick with condoms OK?

siouxdax's avatar

I almost insist on wearing socks. I think feet are the most ugly part of the human anatomy.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@siouxdax. I like the logic in your answer. My feet are seriously unattractive and I don’t have any qualms about keeping them covered. Unless I’m feeling really limber and kinky, I don’t usually use my feet during the act of sex or for sexual purposes.

asmonet's avatar

@peedub: Were you also wearing a bear face?

laureth's avatar

Socks, kinda goofy.
The right kind of boots, though…

I’ll be in my bunk.

introv's avatar

Girls can wear socks. Guys can’t. Those are the rules people.

asmonet's avatar

Girls only wear socks in porn because they come from trailer parks and the bottom of their feetsies are always dirty.

Mamradpivo's avatar

It’s so easy to get down to business without taking your socks off. Pants, skirts and underwear can all come off over your socks. My girl and I find ourselves mid-intercourse both still wearing socks. It’s linda funny: it adds a little levity to the sex. So long as she doesn’t mind (and sometimes is in socks or stockings herself), I’m not going to worry about it.

peedub's avatar

@asmonet Ha! I was but she was wearing a mascot head as well.

asmonet's avatar

Kinky.

jonsblond's avatar

They do look kind of dorky on a guy during sex, but on a girl they can look sexy. Especially if they are the knee high “school girl” socks. I had my pink and black striped knee high socks on the other day while we were, uh, doin’ it and my husband was surprised how turned on he got.

asmonet's avatar

Haha, nice.

essieness's avatar

Um… kinda dorky and unsexy. LOL

Yetanotheruser's avatar

Only if you spell it sox. Then you can call it soxsex!

aprilsimnel's avatar

Sox rox 4 sex!

laureth's avatar

This is starting to sound like Dr. Seuss porn.

Would you do it with a fox?
Would you do it wearing sox?

Yetanotheruser's avatar

I would do it with a fox
I would do it wearing sox
Wearing sox, with a fox
Oh yes, let’s do it in a box

Jeruba's avatar

Which reminds me of a poem by A. A. Milne that I always loved. It begins:

Once upon a time there were three little foxes
Who didn’t wear stockings, and they didn’t wear sockses,
But they all had handkerchiefs to blow their noses,
And they kept their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes.

(The rest of it is here.)

Guess those foxy little guys were always ready.

Grisson's avatar

@Jeruba So you’re saying they didn’t keep it in their ‘trousies’.

Mr_M's avatar

OK! I’ll fess up! I’d rather DIE then be seen by her (after she gets out of the bathroom that first time) in my SOCKS! I ACTIVELY make sure that NEVER happens. Socks HAVE TO BE one of the earlier items to come off. Now, I’m not saying I’d stand there in a coat, suit and tie but with my shoes and sox off, but, as soon as practical!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@Mr_M – what do you mean “after she gets out of the bathroom that first time”? What is this about a bathroom? I don’t understand…

asmonet's avatar

Lots of women have a habit of disappearing off to a bathroom to do mysterious secret womanly things for a few minutes before returning to get squelchy.

augustlan's avatar

Lurve for ‘get squelchy’.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

<—- is so confused

Jeruba's avatar

Like pee first, and brush her hair, and maybe take a little spritz of Scope…

asmonet's avatar

Or, change out of them granny panties.

Grisson's avatar

Or grab the phial of WOOHOO! oil.

augustlan's avatar

Or insert diaphragm.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Or double-checking to see if she’s caught up on her pill. And hiking the girls up in her bra.

Jeruba's avatar

…all of which gives you guys plenty of time to take off those socks.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

who keeps their only bottle of woohoo oil someplace that’s not right next to their bed? not efficient! ;-)

essieness's avatar

you said woo hoo oil

laureth's avatar

But guys seem to think they’re just fine without the Scope, hairbrush, washcloth, toothbrush, or any of that. Odd.

Mr_M's avatar

NOT TRUE! While she’s in the bathroom, the guy’s taking care of things with the mirrors the motel has in the bedroom, AND, TAKING OFF THE SOX.

Mr_M's avatar

Interesting to see how many KNEW what I was talking about!

jamzzy's avatar

soo in conclusion, some people think that wearing socks is bad. Thank you.

Jeruba's avatar

And—I think you can safely bet that if you do take them off, she isn’t going to say, “Well, I was really getting into this, but now that you’ve taken your socks off, I’m just not in the mood any more.”

If she does, you know what to do.

Mr_M's avatar

@jamzzy , it comes down to this: before you start, never, EVER be standing there in your underwear and sox.

fireside's avatar

So what did we decide here?
Fully clothed is best?

Poser's avatar

How else is she going to know it’s business time?

Jayne's avatar

That is, after all, why they call them business socks.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@Poser: That was so funny I was going to add you to my fluther,

but when I tried to I found out I already did!

And you know when I’m down to just my socks what time it is!

Poser's avatar

Thanks!

Clair's avatar

@Grisson that is one of the grossest things ever.
@Jayne indeed that is why they’re called business socks. ooo
omigod i hate i missed this.

timothykinney's avatar

@La_chica_gomela: Do you live in Siberia? Because you often wear socks to bed. Hmph.

augustlan's avatar

Busted!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@timothykinney: You shouldn’t tell details about our personal life like that! Now people will know…what country we live in!

timothykinney's avatar

@La_chica_gomela : I believe I am authorized to discuss our personal details since I now have more than 1000 lurve. I believe that’s your fault, by the way. Thanks!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@timothykinney: You think I would give you lurve? Haha, that’s funny ;-P

Dutchess_III's avatar

Saw sitcom where the gal said, “And Alan…when you wear your socks when we have sex I feel like I’m doing it with a guy in a retirement home.”

trev4326's avatar

When I am having sex I love the guy to be wearing Nike short socks… its amazing! But Im gay so maybe thats just a gay thing…lol
