The other day, Exile and I decided to team up to answer a few of the interesting questions that I’ve received from a couple of readers. We tackled the following question first:
Is it normal for guys to sniff used panties? I really have a strong urge for it. Am I ok?
“Is it normal to sniff used panties? Well, my friend, to field this question we must first break down your query into it’s key elements. In our society we often find ourselves striving to categorize and label people and their behaviors to better understand them. The term “Normal” it’s self is pretty relative, there are some tribes deep in the heart of the rain forest that
insert large clay disks into their children’s lips that would shun us in the civilized world for performing circumcisions on children of the same age.
As for the act of sniffing panties, it is a result of modern man confronting his primitive instincts. Man was once ruled by his these instincts, it drove him to seek out a mate and breed. These instincts were, and still are, triggered by pheromones, and seeing as though men are drawn to these scents they try and go for the source, which is interpreted as the “vagina.”
But to answer your question, no, it’s not normal.
Lucky for you that’s not really important.
See, the world if full of people labeled as “freaks,” and they never really feel like they belong unless they find someone else that they can belong with. Oh, and if you are looking for someone to be a freak with, the internet is a great place to start.
The truth is that if you enjoy taking a woman’s panties, boiling them, and drinking the broth it’s completely O.K., so long as you find someone who shares your “special interests.” “
Shay (me) says:
“I agree with Exile, no sniffing panties isn’t considered normal, but there’s not nessaerily anything wrong with not being normal AND enjoying panty sniffing actually isn’t that unusual, though perhaps obsessing about smelling panties is.
Panty sniffing is generally a harmless fetish, it doesn’t hurt anyone (unless you’re stealing their panties without permission) and it’s certainly not dangerous (well, maybe a slight risk of suffocation) or illegal.
In fact, if you think about it, panty sniffing kinda makes sense – let’s follow the logic:
Straight men (among others) like vaginas ->
Panties are where vaginas live ->
Used panties smell like vaginas
Thus it’s not that far a stretch to see how a straight man (and other people interested in women) might become interested in used panties as a masturbatory aid/fetish object.
In fact, it’s very common for fetish objects to be objects that are associated with intimacy and smells. Scent is closely tied to memory which gives items like used panties an ability to evoke a lot of conscious and unconscious emotional responses.
So, in conclusion, using panties as a masturbatory aid isn’t really all that strange, it’s more like porn for your nose as opposed to porn for your eyes – so yes, I would say that you’re “ok”.
But if you find that you’d rather sniff panties than be with a real woman (or man) then you’d have, what we call in the biz, a fixation that could be unhealthy.“
