A panty fetish is a type of sexual fetishism involving strong attraction or desire toward women's underwear. The fetish stems from the idea that panties are intimate, personal items that hold a person’s scent and can be used for sexual arousal. 

Like many other fetishes, the origins of panty fetishism may be rooted in early childhood experiences, personal preferences, or even cultural influences. However, the exact causes vary from individual to individual, making it a complex and multifaceted phenomenon. Here are different ways to explore panty fetishism. 

1. Arousal in wearing

One of the main aspects of panty fetishism is the arousal that comes from wearing or watching a partner wear panties. It can be a solo activity or can be done with a partner. Some people find the sensation of wearing panties typically made of soft, silky materials to be a turn-on.  

The feeling of the fabric against the skin can be arousing and exciting sexual play. As a result, people can experiment with different panties made out of various materials to find which type they can use to stimulate themselves for arousal. 

2. Addiction to smelling

Another aspect of panty fetishism is the addiction to the scent of a person’s underwear. Panties hold a person’s natural scent, which can be a powerful aphrodisiac for those attracted to it. As a result, some people choose to smell the underwear, especially during a sexual act. 

Some people enjoy the smell of panties so much that they collect and keep them to satisfy their sexual desires.  

3. Admiring underwear

For some people, lingerie's allure lies in the garments' visual appeal. The intricate designs, delicate fabrics, and sexy silhouettes of traditional women's underwear or lingerie can be a turn-on for many individuals. Some people collect panties as a hobby, admiring the different styles and designs available on the market. The aspect of panty fetishism is more focused on the aesthetics of the garments rather than their function. 

4. Finding the perfect pair

Finding the perfect pair of panties can be a thrilling experience for those with a panty fetish. Some people search for specific styles, colors, or fabrics that they find particularly arousing. For some individuals, finding the perfect pair is just as exciting as wearing them. 

The process can involve searching online or in stores or even commissioning custom-made panties from a specialized artisan. Overall, finding the perfect pair requires people to search far and wide to see what they need and want in a panty. 

5. Exploring with partners

Panty fetishism can also be explored with a partner. Some couples enjoy incorporating panties into their sexual play by wearing them or having their partner wear them. It can add an element of excitement and novelty to the sexual experience. However, it is important to discuss boundaries and consent before engaging in any sexual activity. 


Panty fetishism is a complex and multifaceted fetish that can manifest in various ways. Whether it is the sensation of wearing panties, the smell of a woman's natural scent, or the visual appeal of the garments, many different aspects of panty fetishism can be explored. It is important to remember that everyone has unique sexual preferences, and as long as it is consensual and not causing harm, there is no right or wrong way to express one's sexuality.
