Our expert says:
Maybe in part it depends on whether these are your own or someone else's panties. Assuming, as is the commonest variety of this problem, that you are male and like to sniff and try on the panties of various women, then yes, this is indeed a problem ; and not merely embarrassing when you get caught ( and it almost always happens that you do get caught ) but, if like some sniffers, you are stealing someone else's panties to play with, you could also be charged with theft. DO see a good local shrink for assessment and advice on treatment to stop this bad habit and this obsession. It is a mild form of a sexual deviance, in which you have become attached to part of a woman ( the panties and their smells ) rather than the whole woman.
