You read correctly, it exists and it’s sometimes referred to as “The Love Machine” which is basically a big vending machine that was made to sell boxes of pre-worn young girls’ panties. Sick huh? Well it exists and it is found in Japan.
Japanese culture is very interested in what is called “bura-sera” or “buru-sera” which is a term specifically used for the male fascination with school girls. In Japan, youth is seen as quite sexy. Young women in Japan wear sailor-like school uniforms, and these are referred to as “sailor suits,” which is the most common school uniform for high school aged girls in Japan.
The word “buru” means bloomers and “sera” meaning sailor. According to one website, the Japanese culture has a long history of regarding women more as sexual objects than as actual people. These vending machines are only a part of the burusera fetish in Japan.
The kinkiest part about these vending machines is not only that they sell panties, but they’re selling used school girl panties. Men are aroused by the idea that the panties were actually once worn by a school girl.
Young school girls will stop at a porn shop, give them their worn panties, receive a clean pair, and at the end of the day they’ll get their old panties back.
This allows the porn shop to then sell their used panties, without forcing the girls to go to school commando. School girls will also turn profit by selling other used panties, even ones they didn’t wear that same day.
Some of the shops also sell used school girl uniforms and socks (Bonus for those with a foot fetish!) In 1993, the average worn school girl panty sold for $50 USD. However, the price of the used panties goes up depending on how “used” the panties are. If the panties can show any sign of wear, such as bodily fluids, the price can go up quite high. That’s one expensive fetish.
Older women in Japan will also wear these used uniforms, or un-used ones in fact to seem sexy and youthful. Older women will also take part in childlike behavior, dress and attitude, as it is deemed sexy by many men in Japan.
Although this school girl panty vending machine was supposed to be removed from Japan in 1993, many people in Japan claim they still exist, and are still used.

I don’t know about you, but this totally ruined my idea of Sailor Moon.
Until next time, stay honestly naked with yourself and others!
