are most often sniffed after being worn by an individual who the
sniffer finds sexually appealing, in order to enjoy a hint of the scent
of the wearer's genitals or ass, or after a sexual act is performed in
the panties, in order to receive arousal or a submissive high from the
scents of semen or vaginal secretions left behind in the panties.
panties are generally "used" (worn) prior to being sniffed, some panty
fetishists and laundry fetishists can become aroused by sniffing clean,
or even new, panties due to the intensity of their fetish.
sniffing is often performed willingly along with masturbation or sexual
activity with a partner, such as receiving a handjob, blowjob, or
pantyjob while enjoying the scent of a pair of panties, or can be
forced as part of domination play, such as a dominant holding a pair of
worn panties against the mouth and nose of a submissive so as to force
them to smell the panties, and can be enjoyed by men and women alike.
In fact, some women enjoy sniffing their own panties either in order to
smell their own juices and arousal or those of a partner left behind
after sexual activities, or simply because they possess a panty or
Panty sniffing is most often enjoyed by panty
fetishists, pussy fetishists and ass fetishists (due to the close
proximity of these body parts to a pair of worn panties), women
worshipers (in the belief that everything feminine should be
worshiped), tansvestite/transexual/shemale fetishists (in order to
smell the semen or ass of the individual to whom the panties belong),
sissies (as part of a variety of different submissive fantasies),
cuckolds (either given to the cuckold/cuckess prior to a sexual
activity or after sex for the submissive's own sexual gratification or
as a part of an act of domination, for instance: "smell the semen of my
lover, cucky!"), and laundry fetishists, though panty sniffing has, to
a limited extent, entered mainstream culture as a legitimate form of
sexual self-gratification in the absence of a willing or readily
available partner - for instance: "It's been so long since we had sex,
I caught him sniffing my panties yesterday!").
on this theme, many of which involve the same underlying motivations
and similar methods of play, include bra sniffing, stocking sniffing,
sock sniffing, and shoe sniffing.
One must remember that
panties, like any other fabric, do not allow air to pass through
easily, so any play involving pressing a pair of panties against the
nose and mouth must be done with care so as to avoid suffocation.
one must keep in mind the possibility that particles will enter the
body from the panties, either through the nose or mouth, and can
present a limited risk of disease transmission.
