  1. Isn't that against ebay's policies?

    I once sold a pair of unworn shoes and this guy emailed me, asking me if I would be willing to wear these shoes for 4weeks+ if his winning bid was over a certain amount and if maybe I was willing to bring the shoes to his home. :faint:

    I don't understand why this has to happen on ebay? I'm sure there's plenty of sites where fetishists (sp?!) can get what they want without bothering serious sellers who are only interested in selling an unused item?!

    There was a very long thread about "very well worn" stuff on eBay. It's not a joke. It caters to freaky foot fetishists and complies to eBay policies...believe it or not. These freaks LOVE old socks and old, nasty shoes - the nastier the better.

    Here's a good example of "well worn" used. Used nylons sold separately:

    Try and find the original thread on here for a good laugh.

  9. oh, another fetish auction...easy money...I need to start selling my underwear...
     
  10. I think it's ebay policy that you only sell cleaned things - so you must state that they have been properly cleaned.
    Reminds me of when I heard about used women's panties being sold in vending machines in Japan. eeeww
     
  11. ^ Yep. That's the policy, but those seeking "well-worn" shoes and underthings can get them, despite the disclaimer.
     
  12. eww who wold want someone's used undies
     
  13. Well...so much for eating dinner after reading this thread! LOL!
