That’s right, used panties have a market, and it’s a lot less niche than you’d think. This mild form of sex work has been wildly popular on the internet message board Reddit. Other websites sell used panties, such as the aptly named PantyDeal.com and other such straightforward fetish websites.
When it comes down to it, there are a lot of things people do with used panties that we wish we didn’t know about. But you know what they say, friends love to share! So, without further ado, here’s everything you didn’t want to know about selling used panties to strangers.
Why people buy used panties
Why do people buy used panties? Simple, to sniff and masturbate over. Some cases even report men buying the women’s undies to wear for themselves! The anonymity of the buyer/seller relationship also gives the fetish an ambiance of danger.
There are no solid statistics of how many people have a used panty fetish, though there are certainly enough “official” websites selling used panties to let us know it’s a thing.
Types of used panties
Everyone has their likes and dislikes when it comes to the bedroom, and fetish panties are no different. “Clients” of used panty sellers have all sorts of different requests when it comes to what they expect from their product. Common examples of what clients ask for are:

#3 Specific actions in said panties. Some buyers want to know the panties they’re getting are top quality and have experienced some adventure. Some examples include sleeping in panties overnight, exercising in the panties, and of course, having sex while in the panties. Some even request, err, semen stains be present on the garments.
Used panty machines
Used panties for sale is hardly a new phenomenon. Rumors spread for decades of Japanese vending machines selling used panties. The reality of this rumor, there are actually machines called gachapon machine. These are kind of like giant gumball machines by Western standards. Some gachapon machines purport selling used schoolgirl or office girl panties. The reality is more like panties manufactured to look used.
Apparently, the rumors of used panty vending machines or used panty counters used to exist in Japanese sex shops. One article on Japanese Tech specified this was popular in back alleys of Akihabara, but since then the laws have become stricter.
How it works
