Panty fetish refers to a sexual arousal by or sexual interest in panties. It is a type of underwear fetish, or fetish with a specific type of undergarment. This fetish is most common among heterosexual males who are aroused by the underwear of cisgender women, but anyone with any sexuality or gender identity can have a panty fetish.
As with any sex act or fetish, all parties must be aware of how they will participate and consent fully, without coercion. Anything else is illegal and reprehensible.
For panty fetishists, there is no object more desired than a pair of panties. For some, their obsession can lead people to collect panties. They might buy panties, ask intimate partners for their panties, or in some cases steal them from people’s drawers, clotheslines, or the machines in public laundromats. They may also buy used panties from online sellers. People who sell their underwear often charge high prices for the panties they’ve worn the longest.
People with a panty fetish are often aroused by the odor of worn underwear. They may also feel turned on by the soft or silky fabrics that panties are made from. Some people love stroking the panties or using them to masturbate. Some people wear them, either at home in private or underneath their clothes when they are out.
Some panty fetishists also love looking at others wearing panties. They may become aroused when people flash the underpants they’re wearing, either accidentally or on purpose. They may encourage their intimate partners to leave panties on during sex or wear these undergarments, and nothing else, while they’re relaxing at home. Many panty fetishists get turned on watching others put on their panties and take them off again. Many panty fetishists enjoy softcore pornography showing people wearing panties.
People with a panty fetish are often attracted to certain kinds of panties. They may like thongs that expose the buttocks or prefer more modest designs. They may also feel drawn to panties made from specific materials such as cotton, lace or satin.
