Used Panties Vending Machines
Weird Japanese Vending Machines
Weird Japanese vending machines stocked with used schoolgirl panties may be one of the most often quoted Japanese urban legends, but do they actually exist?
There is no doubt that, to satisfy the auto-erotic practices of panty fetishists, a thriving market for used innerwear does exist in Japan. “Panty fetish” even has it’s own specific term in the Japanese language. “Burusera” (ブルセラ) is a portmanteau coined by combining two words: ‘burumā’ and ‘sērā-fuku’. “Burumā” means bloomers (as in bottoms of gym suits) and “sērā-fuku” means sailor suit (the traditional Japanese school uniforms for schoolgirls).
“Burusera” shops, catering to kinky needs of undergarment fetishism, trade in this sexual desire. The merchandise is often accompanied by ostensibly genuine photos of the girls wearing them, like a ‘certificate of authenticity’ acting not only as an endorsement that the item is authentic, but as an advertisement to entice customers to purchase so they can smell or otherwise experience the panties for sexual stimulation.
Vending machines exist in Japan that dispense underwear that has supposedly been previously worn by schoolgirls. The sale of such garmentry, however, has been outlawed in Japan which has caused the undergarment to go underground. The question therefore remains as to the authenticity of the product that can be found in Japenese vending machines today. Are they actually used underwear and/or schoolgirl underwear or just advertised as such?
How Are They Manufactured?
The following music video to the Stereo Total song “Wir Tanzen Im Viereck” is not only a funny clip and cool song but probably closest to the truth.
Vending Machines In Japan
Japan has the highest number of vending machines per capita, with about one machine for every twenty-three people. Japan’s high population density, relatively high cost of labor, limited space, preference for shopping on foot or by bicycle, and low rates of vandalism and petty crime, provide an accommodating environment for vending machines. While the majority of machines in Japan are stocked with drinks, snacks, and cigarettes, one occasionally finds vending machines selling items such as bottles of liquor, cans of beer, fried food, iPods, pornography, sexual lubricants, live lobsters, fresh meat, eggs and potted plants.
