If there was a male version of Victoria’s Secret I would want it to sell kilts. There is something about seeing a kilt-wearing man that produces little explosions of appreciation even in this low libido wife.
Do you find men ‘dressed to kilt’ delectably appealing, too? Many of you must. The now defunct Squidoo polled 600 women, in 2012, asking if they found kilt-wearing men sexy. 94% said, “YES!” In 2010, the kilt was voted the world’s favourite traditional item of clothing, with many women stating it is ‘very attractive’ on men. This is in spite of studies which tell us women are not aroused sexually through visuals.
My kilt store would be called Victor McSecret. There wouldn’t be a brief or boxer in sight. Because, one of the mysterious things about kilts is what’s underneath.
The Scottish Highland Regiments wore nothing underneath. The freeing tradition made its way into the civilian population and was dubbed ‘going regimental’ or ‘going commando’ because of its origin.
The pleated kilts of today evolved from a single length of woolen plaid that would have been about 10 yards long. The earliest references to this kind of kilt was the mid-1600s. It was pleated manually around the mid-section and secured with a belt. After pleating and belting, there was enough extra fabric to throw over the shoulder and secure at the base of the back in the belt.
Can I prove that kilts will help all gals with low sex drive grow steamy? No. But, I can tell you that, ’Kilt wearing likely produces an ideal physiological scrotal temperature, which is known to be beneficial for robust spermatogenesis and good sperm quality,’ (EJO Kompanjie, Scottish Medical Journal, Feb., 2013)
Believe it or not, sperm production is not what I find most romantic about the kilt.
The kilt was, and to some degree still is, a symbol of power and might. In 1745, the Battle of Culloden pitted Highland Scots against the southern British. Because the kilt was a sign of national pride and were worn by mighty and powerful Scottish men, the defeated Scots were stripped of the right to wear their kilts (or tartans). This act was repealed in 1782. Since then, the kilt has remained a staple continually growing in popularity around the world.
Men who wear kilts today are reminiscent of those powerful, mighty and loyal men. A kilt wearing man is a noble sight to behold. He radiates a confident strength.
Nowadays you don’t have to be a member of a Scottish clan to wear a kilt. You don’t have to be Scottish at all. And you don’t have to be in the best of shapes to look dead gorgeous in a kilt, gents.
According to the comments I found around the internet, kilts will turn nearly any woman’s head. I tend to think this is true. A woman is drawn to strength, whether strength of mind, spirit or body. Arousal can follow when a woman senses protection through strength. Plus, there is just something a little exotic (or is that erotic?) about the kilt.
So, where’s a low libido gal to find a decent kilt for a fair price for her handsome noble man?
5 years ago I signed up to receive emails from Heritage of Scotland. They always have fabulous deals on casual kilts. They graciously sent me a kilt & ghillie shirt for Mr. Muscle for this piece!
Having shopped around the web and finding other stores selling kilts for far more, would it be quality work in spite of the good price?
That question was answered nicely. I was quite pleased at the sturdy and perfect stitching on all the pleats and the entire garment. It’s heavier than I anticipated. It’s not wool, but a blend of 65% Rayon/35% Acetate. It’s machine washable! I was delighted that it came out beautifully after washing in cold water. It didn’t shrink and none of the color faded and no ironing was needed after it was dried on a rack. The black ghillie shirt fared just as well.
The first day it arrived, Mr. McMuscle wore his kilt until bedtime. He loved the breezy atmosphere. He said it was quite comfortable. I noticed he stood a little taller, too.

I anticipated he would look good. But I didn’t expect his full striking effect! Yeah, it gets me revved up. I want to take him out and show him off, then bring him home and ravage him.
Husbands, if you’ve been feeling ‘underappreciated,’ lately, consider a kilt. Wives, if you think a little wardrobe variety may be just what the doctor ordered for your lagging sex drive, consider a Scottish inspired gift under the Christmas tree.
I’m thinkin’ something is missing from these research studies that say women aren’t aroused by visual stimulation. They must not be using kilts!
