How long have you been selling used panties for?
I’ve been selling for 6 months
How did you find out about it?
I was on a fetish site (fetlife) and a man asked me if I would sell my socks to him. I saw the message too late and there was no transaction.
The memory popped into my head at work I thought “there has to be a podcast about this” and The Panty Selling Podcast was there! I started listening to it and thought I could do that.
Where do you sell?
I started on PantyDeal then censored my most recent site is Scented Pansy
How many hours per day do you spend selling?
Maybe 2 hours every day in the week just messaging buyers, creating customs or posting items. The weekends I could be doing 6 hours a day doing things like making videos, taking photos or creating experiences.
Why did you decide to sell panties online?
I’m kinky in my personal life and have been interested in phone sex and BDSM, I’ve always had an interest in sex work and wanted a fun side hustle and I love it! It just feels like the right fit for me.
Do you sell additional items or just panties?
When I started I only wanted to sell socks, then thought why not other items so now I sell panties, bras, shoes, hosiery, non nude custom videos and sexting sessions. Honestly the list could go on!
What do you enjoy about panty selling?
I really enjoy connecting with buyers and making them happy. I love wearing panties knowing that someone is going to have fun with them, its like having a little exciting secret. It’s such a confidence booster especially when you have a returning buyer or when you have some lovely feedback.
I’m in a wonderful discord group and I’m so grateful for their support and knowledge. There’s always someone to help all hours of the day, it’s a proper community that I’m happy to be a part of.
What is challenging or difficult about panty selling?
It’s challenging to deal with time wasters as they can take up your energy and time, you learn their tactics and block them. It can put you in a bad mood but you have to have a cup of tea and move on there are real buyers out there! I’ve found that karma is a thing in the panty world you’ll go through a bunch of time wasters then all of a sudden a buyer wants to purchase loads of things from you and then it’s totally worth it.
What’s your advice to someone just starting out?
These are a few things I’d wish I’d of known when I started. Never drop your prices your items are worth what you think they cost not what anyone else think so don’t undersell yourself. I’d also say don’t give out freebies if they want to see photos they can pay for them, it’s a regular thing scammers try with new sellers so they get free content. Always make sure you have been paid before they get their item, you’d never go into a shop and eat the produce first then pay later. Also you can always say no and take a day off, just be safe and keep your identity private.
What, in your opinion, does it take to be a successful panty seller?
Consistency and being friendly! I’ve learnt I’m not consistent my sales drop and being polite and friendly is free. There definitely is a customer service factor involved in this work, it’s important for the buyer to feel a connection.
How much (on average) do you/have you made per week/month?
Although I joined just before the pandemic and haven’t been particularly consistent I’ve made about £70 a month it’s took a good couple of months to get my first sale. I enjoy it and that’s what’s important to me.
Do your friends/family know about what you do?
Close friends and family do and they enjoy hearing some of the requests I get. Acquaintances and colleagues have no idea and they don’t need to know.
How long do you think you will do this for?
As long as I enjoy it and my memberships are paid
