Awesome you guys great job to all of you! The thrill of wearing our orthodontia in public is unexplainable and regardless of how vast our device is, whether something as simple like just a top Hawley removable or as heavy as double combination HG with biteplate and lipbumper, depending what our Device or Devices of choice are, the feeling makes us feel as if we are on top of the world. It's a high in itself.
I am seeing a girl on the weekends due to out work life, I hang put with her fully Geared every weekend. I didn't know we would start basically seeing eachother but a few weeks ago we were texting (Friday night) tell her my day was horrible after receiving a How Are You from her. She Asks Why. I tell her I got braces due to slow relaps of jaw surgery. She says well braces aren't bad (she is not full knowledge on significant Orthodontics). I tell her they are what you think. She says I'm coming over to comfort you and make you happy. I tell her no seriously it's a huge metal orthodontic device that wraps around my head. She says well how many hours a day do you need to wear it? I say (I Went For It) It's perminantly wired in and I just hate life now! She says ohh you poor thing well  sure your still handsome :). I say No I'm awkward looking. She doesn't text back for 20 mins then "Knock Knock" on door. I gear up to play the role walk to the door with heart pounding. I yell out "Who Isth Itk" with a lisp. It's her. I cover my face with my shirt open the door and as she steps in she demands me to show her. I tell her NO! She then pulls shirt from my face and Sighs loudly followed by "Aww I still think your handsome" she smiles while putting her high hand on my cheek which was basically a hand full of Gear and straps then hugs me.  If anyone would like I can continue this or keep you posted on my weekend 24/7 headgear fling!

I'm living a fantasy although I feel bad for this too. We hang and sleep over every weekend and I'm always Geared and she is always talking and asking about it which is fun and arrousing. She kisses me and plays with my gear when we cuddle to a movie. It's amazing :)

Wow that's amazing :).

I just try to smile broadly when I go out, but I still feel self-conscious. It's probably part of the attraction, though. I hope to work up to going to a carnival or such with headgear on at some point.

I love wearing my fake braces and cervical headgear in public.  I do it a few times a week at stores.  I just wish someone would ask me about my headgear!!

I only wear my braces and headgear out of town - with the main aim of getting a reaction from someone and them asking about it! Unfortunately not that many people ask.

I’ll go into a shop and ask for something, then apologise for lisping so much in the hope that it starts a conversation. I only ever go to the female shop assistants! Lol

I went into the pharmacy once to ask about pain relief - she was interested and was asking how long I had to wear it. I said I was given the option of jaw surgery or headgear and opted for headgear!

That does sound super exciting! I love it when people ask my wife about her braces, from fellow braced females it's positively amazing! Seeing her comparing her hardware with someone is so cool

When I wore my headgear in I never got a lot of looks until I went into a restaurant. I would order my drink and drink with a straw, then when my meal came I would remove it, the looks and reactions came when I put. My headgear back on. I they were wondering how I could put in without a mirror.

Ive been out (in England) wearing various casts and my neck and back braces (including a Lerman Non-Invasive Halo). Also, years ago, I also publicked in an expander and combination headgear I bought from The Braces Shop.

Generally, the thrill of being looked at furtively by members of the public is amazing although I am not so keen if someone is really staring; most people are too polite to actively stare though. I think it is also surprising how many people (especially men I find) seem fascinated (or even turned on?) by medical restriction e.g. casts, orthopaedic braces and orthodontic braces.

I have just ordered an blue Activator with pelottes, tongue crib and headgear tubes plus hi-pull & cervical headgear and facebow from The Braces Shop - I can't wait to publick in that!

alexR1 that is awesome. Great choice on appliancea from bracesshop and there is a vast thrill factor and high when seen out in public all Geared up! I dont know how to explain it but even the embarassment is a thrill too. Do you have a milwaukee brace at all?

No I dont have and nor have I ever tried a Milwaukee - would like to although no more restrictive than my recently purchased custom made Minerva!

alexR1 Do you plan on wearing your new headgear out in public along with your new appliance?
So how is your minerva brace custom?

libtech  I certainly wouldn't wear my Minerva and Activator together at the same time. I like to project a semblance of reality!  :)

I was going to publlick last weekend in London (or near) but the guy who was going to give me some moral support couldn't, in the end, meet me. I will certainly venture out in my Activator (would need moral support of someone with me to put headgear on too - somehow it's a lot easier if you're with someone - the stares don't seem to affect me so much). I would be worried about my speech though as the Activator has a tongue crib...
