Panty Fetish Explained: What’s Your Panty Kink?

Panty fetish is a very common kink. That panties are potentially exciting sexually is understandable to most of us: they are worn close to the genitals, and they are not seen frequently outside of sex play.

Panties as part of the repertoire of seduction or sexual interest is so seemingly obvious that we may not think of it is a fetish. But the panty fetish is definitely a fetish, and it comes with as many specificities and variations as any other kind of kink.

What Is a Panty Fetish?

The panty fetish is exactly what it sounds like: an intense sexual interest in panties. Put simply, the panty fetishist is sexually aroused by panties.

Who Has a Panty Fetish?

The vast majority of people with a panty fetish are straight men who are aroused by women’s underwear.

But anyone can have a panty fetish.

There are some women who are intensely aroused by men’s jockeys. There are gay men with an underwear fetish. There are lesbian women who love women’s panties. There are crossdressers who love sexy panties, and there are transgender people who love guys’ boxers or girls’ thongs. All of the above!

What’s the Panty Fetish All About?

It’s pretty standard sex stuff. Many people find the idea, the look, or the scent of panties exciting.

These are sexy undergarments worn near or against the genitalia. Their purpose is to conceal those parts or to protect them from the threats of the outside world, like germs, or chafing pant seams. Another purpose is expressly to excite—we enjoy wearing “sexy underwear” because it makes us feel feminine or alluring because it adds to the seduction and arousal.

In addition to the obvious pleasures of seeing your lover nearly naked, in fashionable or beautiful lingerie, and all the promises that scene holds and hides, seeing women in panties is an early imprint for many guys. One of the earliest experiences guys may have of arousal is seeing a woman almost naked—a sister changing, women in the Sears catalogs. We often keep our early experiences of sexual arousal with us for the long haul!

6 Kinds of Panty Fetish

While a wide variety of styles and sights can excite most men, many guys have a very specific interest when it comes to panty love.

They may enjoy a specific style most, a specific color, or a specific body type in the panties. They may have a strong preference for a specific scenario—an unexpected upshot glimpse of the panties, for example, or the t-bar thong above low-rise jeans, or cotton Granny panties.

The thrill of panties might come from the tactile sensation—silk panties or panties with a wet crotch. It might be rubbing the panties against one’s body or cock—the idea that they were close to her pussy, and now they are touching his dick is enough to send many men straight to orgasm!

Here are some of the most popular examples of panty fetish. Which one excites you most?

Satin Panty Fetish

For many guys with this kink, the sensuality of the fabric and how it looks and feels is an important element. The sheen of satin panties is a common preference. Satin has a specific sensation when stroked by fingers, and its aesthetic has a shiny quality that adds to the fetishist’s sexual excitement. Their tactile quality is soft and smooth and the satin panty fetish is very common for these reasons.

Cotton Panty Fetish

Others have a strong preference for the cotton panty. Although cotton panties can be any style from boy shorts to string bikini,  the cotton panty fetish is generally referring to classic cut panty style that have full coverage and are very modest, even old-fashioned. Usually but not always the preference for cotton panties is white.

This may have a lot to do with the fact that this class of underwear is kind of a longstanding female panty prototype. Its aim is not usually to arouse, as with a g-string, but more practical, so in that way it seems kind of private or unexpected, in contrast to what can potentially happen.

Thong Panty Fetish

The thong is a barely there, an itty bitty piece of fabric that hardly covers the lips, and leaves the buttocks in full view. The aesthetic can be incredibly exciting and may be scene as slutty or associated with “bad girls.”

Ironically, one of the main ways a thong arouses panty fetishists is when she is fully covered, but you can see the outline of the thong under her yoga pants or skirt, or a glimpse of it above the cut of jeans or other pants.

Panty Sniffing Fetish

For a lot of guys, the down and dirty art of panty sniffing is where the real jolt lies. Huffing her balled up panties off the floor while she heads to the shower gives up a heady bouquet that invites a man into where he’s going next, or reminds him where he’s just been.

Panty sniffing is a very primal kink—her blend of hormones and pheromones speaks to his on the animal plane. You see cats and dogs just sniffing each other’s butts and genitals straight up, don’t you?

Sometimes this panty kink even extends to a panty liner fetish.

Used Panty Fetish

The panty sniffing fetish is so common that websites and independent businesses abound.

Men can walk into a department store any time and buy up armloads of their favorite panties, saying it’s a “gift” at checkout. But instead, they’ll pay much higher prices for used, soiled panties. Panties that promise multiple days wearing fetch higher dollar value. That whiff of hormones is extremely provocative.

Not every used panty lover sniffs them. Just the idea that they were worn next to her genitals makes handling them or touching them or just looking at them a sensual experience.
