Did you know there are people who buy and sell used panties?? I've only recently learned about this in the last few months or so and remember being shocked the first time I heard about it. I even searched websites because I remember wondering how that would even work. After that I never really thought much about it... until I received a note from somebody yesterday saying he saw my profile (on another fetish site), thought I was cute, and wanted to buy my panties.
I was in shock at first, but then I started thinking... He was professional, not sleazy or skeazy at all in the way he approached me, and he said there would be no games, he's a generous buyer and would like to buy often, and then offered $100/pair. Now I have so many questions! I've been able to pick a few peoples brains about this (vanilla friends AND kinky mentors), but I'm also looking for opinions from experienced people and those who may have legal advice, and I knew my friends here might be the right audience.
1) How could I do this and keep my anonymity? He lives way, way, way on the other side of the country from me, but still. I don't want him knowing who I really am.
2) How would I receive the money in a legit way? My research already found that paypal is NOT the way to go (if they find out what you're doing, they'll freeze the money), but someone did suggest a private PO box. Is that safe or would that be even worse because I'd be using government owned property? Also, would it be suspicious that I was only getting letters from one guy? Someone else suggested gift card, but is that really the best way?
3) What are my legal concerns? I may live an X rated lifestyle, but my profession is very G rated. I would do everything by the book here, including reporting the added income in my taxes if it gets to be a lot. Getting arrested or charged for something illegal is not an option. I value my job and brand/image too much.
What it comes down to is, I don't need some weirdo finding me, I don't want to get arrested or fined some inordinate amount that I have no way of paying, and I don't want to lose my job. If this is an illegal venture, I want to know now. ... BUT IT'S $100 for each pair!!!
Thoughts and advice welcome. Pros AND cons, too. If you've ever bought or sold, please add your voice to this topic.
