Selling used undies?
June 6, 2006 10:26 PM   Subscribe

Selling used, ahem, clothing online.

I met a woman who sold used underthings on the good ol' web and made a killing. What are the laws regarding this, and how does one go about selling? Legitimate, trustworthy sites? Tips? Warnings?

I realize that it's probably better to sell plasma or lemonade, but to hear that an attractive woman can make $200+ on a pair of $5 Wal-mart undies is just too attractive a thought to dismiss on the grounds of perversion.

And here's a better question - if you are in the market for such underthings, how can you be sure that the underthings come from the sexy 25-year old woman in the craigslist photo, and not some fat, glue-sniffing grandma?

The older the better, apparently.

One way to be sure of what you're getting is to go direct to the source.

You can't sell it on eBay.

Tips? Warnings?
I was under the impression this was frowned on for public-health reasons since the items in question presumably haven't been washed and mailing biological waste is a no-no.

I guess if you are willing to buy those things caveat empor. Sounds like a good scam to me.

I recall getting caught up in one of those late-night HBO shows about people and their kinks. A few had come up with their own version of this, whereby they bought bulk packages of underthings and at the kitchen sink, smeared a combination of canned tuna juice, Hellman's mayonaise and I think a dash of Tabasco "for spice". They had never truly been worn and were sealed in a Zip-lock and mailed out hours later. Probably made a killing, too.
