9 Pantydeal Members on Why The Panty Fetish Isn’t What You Think

We know panties are something to be celebrated. We know a panty fetish is healthy, normal, and sexy. However, we also know many fetishes are widely misunderstood. Because kinks aren’t often talked about in the mainstream, some people have misconstrued ideas about the used panty fetish.

Why do people buy used panties? Who buys them? What’s it like to be a seller? And isn’t it weird to buy used underwear? (Hint: no, it’s not!)

It’s time to share real answers to these questions. Here are Pantydeal buyers and sellers on misconceptions and why we should change our perception of fetishes once and for all.

9 Pantydeal Members on Misconceptions, Kink Shaming, and Enjoying What Makes Them Happy

“I'm attracted to others by their scent. So why would it be weird for someone to love sniffing panties?”

“I've heard people say that panty sniffing is weird and only weirdos do it. I think that is the furthest from the truth. I'm attracted to others by their scent. So why would it be weird for someone to love sniffing panties? I love it when I'm told my scent is intoxicating and delicious. I happen to love sniffing my panties. I'm always inhaling my scent each time I use the restroom. I'm not sure I would say anything to the people who think it is weird. You can rarely change someone's mind.” - AngLovSex

“The most common misconception is that the panty fetish is weird and gross”

“I think the most common misconception is that it’s weird and gross. I don’t feel like that’s the case at all. People who think that are way too uptight and don’t understand the world of fetish and kink. Everyone is different, and there are no gross or weird kinks, in my opinion. People should enjoy what makes them happy.” - Dirtyteach16

“People would be surprised by how many intelligent, well-educated, and kind people are attracted to this line of work”

“I think people would be surprised by how many intelligent, well-educated, and kind people are attracted to this line of work, on both the buying and selling ends of the spectrum. To those people I'd say: open up your mind and take a ride on the wild side every once and a while - you might just find yourself enjoying it.” - Seller (anonymous)

“Some of the nicest people I've met have been on here”

“A common misconception is that the only people who buy panties are virgin 40-year-olds who live in their mothers' basements, and the only people who sell panties are sluts with no self-respect. In the end, we are just people. All different sizes, shapes, and personalities. No one should be shamed or stereotyped for this fetish. Some of the nicest people I've met have been on here.” - Pixiespanties5

“If you allow your mind to be open, you will find your own sexual growth as well”

“I think people think it's one type of person that likes panties, but there are so many types of people on here, from those who use the panties for pleasuring themselves, to dressing up in them, to being dominant or sub. Panties are just a starting point for many to explore desires and open that door to an unexplored land filled with hot and steamy play. And if you allow your mind to be open, you will find your own sexual growth as well”. - Wettestcoast

“A lot of people think it’s a straightforward sale. There’s more to it than that”

“The common misconception is that a lot of people think that it’s a straightforward sale. However, there’s a lot more to it than that, as each customer is so different and has different requests and needs. You need to get to know them on a personal level. It’s not just “selling dirty knickers”. Buyers also might be in a situation where they struggle to find a lady to satisfy their particular sexual needs, so that’s where I come in.” - Curvey_country_carly

“I absolutely love it here.. it's healing my mind, body, and soul.”

“People might think that people who buy used panties are seedy, or people of low moral character. But that's not true at all. I've met some of the nicest, kindest people on Pantydeal. True friends. I have PTSD and tremors. I came to Pantydeal because I have found that a woman's scent calms me down, helps me not shake, it helps me feel normal. I have never felt more normal than since I joined Pantydeal. The sellers are some of the best people I have met in my life. I'm less anxious and do not shake as much and all the love and support I get from the sellers makes it that much better. I absolutely love it here.. it's healing my mind, body, and soul.” - Stormeyesprime44

“This fetish will help you to connect to yourself and open new feelings inside you.”

“For those who have misconceptions, I want to tell them it’s a fetish of great feeling, it’s not weird or inappropriate, it’s a totally new world of heaven, and it’s totally hygienic. This fetish will help you to connect to yourself and open new feelings inside you.” - Sweetheart_kiss
