There is no place like Japan when it comes to vending machine weirdness.
You can get a whole slew of weird, but common, items like umbrellas, rice, beer, tobacco, eggs, and even porn, on any given street through the land of the rising sun.
However, in some darker and more obscure side streets of Japan, you can find vending machines selling things that even the Japanese find weird and strange.
One such vending machine that is found through out Japan is the “Used Schoolgirl Panties” vending machine.
As the image shows, machines would carry used panties with a picture of the schoolgirl who supposedly had worn them before giving them up to be sold.
Used schoolgirl panties are so popular, that even stores illegally sell them. As you can see in the below hidden camera investigation, schoolgirls can come into stores like this one and they are paid for the underwear they are currently wearing.
In fact the The Japanese government has identified the sale of used schoolgirl panties as such a problem they actually outlawed the sale or purchase of used schoolgirl panties anywhere, including vending machines.
A commercial was also made to help deter men from buying used schoolgirl panties by suggesting that the panties might not have even been worn by schoolgirls at all.
This is so cool! I can’t wait till we have these in US!
then you’re a complete shameless pervert
Wow, you're incredibly lame.
Just hoping you won't get the ones with yeast or crabs.
holy cow the japs sure are full of wack!
Ha ha, I remember hearing about this years ago and just thinking, “I both want to go to Japan and never want to hear of the country ever again” at the same time. =P
That commercial is hilarious though, and I think it’s pretty likely that that’s how some of the panties are “prepared”. Not only is it probably cheaper, but how the hell is anyone going to know otherwise?
Sorry but this is not true. 20 years ago there were some idiots who set a few vending machines up but the police removed them quickly. Maybe you can find them in obscure adult shops but not in vending machines. Please verify your sources.
Sources are numerous… Like in the double digits, including Snopes and many many other people and sites.
There is a law against this in Japan and they don’t make laws for one time offenses.
LOL, I love Japanese laws. Like that law that every phone must make a loud sound when taking a photo to prevent upskirt photos being taken. You’d think it was probably such a widespread problem they even had to make a law for it! Crazy!
I would think it would be a widespread problem seeing as these panties were so popular.
Too bad they be speaking Chinese in that video.
I second that… that’s definitely not Japanese.
not Chinese,Only Japanese can do this disgusting stuff.trust me.
Oh really, it's not just the Japanese who you say are 'disgusting'. It can be any nationality.
That commercial was INSANE! oh well…to each his own!
my favorite commercial ever.
Right Said Fred
Ya, that first video is in Cantonese, so maybe it’s from HK or Macau, where they can get away with selling crazy stuff like this.
its not….its just people who are investigating it and making a show about it but its a japanese thing
FYI on the first video… They are speaking in a non-Japanese language but if you pay attention the girl is Japanese in a Japanese schoolgirl outfit. Also the guy is paying her in Japanese Yen.
what a great way for a girl to make money and never have to wash her underwear again.
though this is the common info spread throughout the internet and most of you wished it was true. lets be real, this is pretty much banned in Japan.
Panties? Bah. Let me know when they have actual schoolgirls in the vending machines. I'm saving my quarters already!
i also heard of ura-shops vending schoolgirl piss in tiny jars, complete with the photograph of the girl who urinated in it. Some fetish collect those like trophies … -_-
it is in cantonese language… moreover, the subtitle is in malay language.. i am a malaysian chinese, so i am pretty sure this is cantonese language with malay subtitle… that malay used looked like malaysian malay.. coz indonesian malay language is quite different… hehe.. and that voice.. sounds familiar.. but i cant really identify who’s it is..
Jo from Tokyo
It does indeed speak Chinese in this video. Most of all, you would not find such item in Japan as the sale of used underwears has been forbidden for years.
The last video is hilarious. The other one … kinda creepy.
Silly buggers, that is not a commercial. That is the video clip for “Stereo Total – wir tanzen im viereck”.
Actually they still do sell them in vending machines, new and used.
The second is not a commercial. people shouldn’t make stuff up when they don’t know.
Selling of panties was a great cause due to poverty or in terms of financial loss, in this case it is better to sell than to steal.
make it a world to sell more…
Well, itÂ´s unusual to buy those in a machine like Coke. Here you can find people making money doing that. In chat-rooms, people advertise and ask for used panties or any underware to satisfy their desires. I myself sold 3 used panties of my wife for R$ 190,00 like US$ 82,60. Anyone who wants that just send us an email or post a comment here and weÂ´ll talk about.
i hear they r coming up with the next big thing ( Diapers )…YUMMY
eww… thats fucked up. screw the person that made this legal!
Nah, nothing wrong with it being legal, but there's also nothing wrong with us making fun of the people who actually buy this crap.
This is the closest a lot of guys can get to girls without ordering a sex worker.
These machines were never that common whatsoever. They pretty much don't exist at all anymore after the Governor of Tokyo clamped down on vending machines selling 'inappropriate' goods.
Plz reply if any girl wants to sell her
used cummy and juicy undies.
lmaof! I would rathar steal schoolgirls panties from their backyard where the hang the panties to dry under the sun.
o my garsh
Just because it is illegal doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I have personally been kiked out of shops in Osaka and Tokyo because they were selling this. My girlfriend (from Osaka) used to sell hers with her friends. They got menstrual blood on their sports shorts for extra cash.
Anyone who thinks this is an urban myth is mistaken.
i can sell my undies for the right price. contact at email@example.com
