To the extent that they do exist, they are rare. It's not something you're going to see casually on any street. I'm still not convinced about the claims myself -- the original version of the snopes page claimed they basically didn't exist, but they've since modified it based on what sound like some anecdotal claims from Internet people.

Regardless of if they exist or not, that's still a pretty insane idea. Whoever thought of making a vending machine with used panties... if they did that here, they'd be sent to a psychiatrist :P

well, for what it's worth, I ran (into) one of those in Hokkaido. I can't even remember the city, but the machine itself was just as nondescript as any of the other vending variety.

I was actually showing some of the soldiers that you can buy coffee, softdrinks and beer all in the same machine. and well, needless to say, we were all abit taken back when we saw what was in there. lol

I've read sightings and seen pictures of the machines on the net, so they must be there. But like the others say, they don't stand out. At least not where I was.

two_heads_talking, I think you dropped an "into" in your first sentence.

I've only ever seen one picture of a panty machine and it's on every site that talks about them it seems. If they were really as common as it's said, there would be pictures of all sorts of panty machines but I've only ever seen that one picture. Likewise, a friend of one of my LJ friends who lives in Japan decided to look for a panty machine just for kicks, and it took forever to find one. And the one she found was...the one in the picture.

So I have to conclude that panty machines are not very common, though perhaps they can be found in...ahem...doinky places.

You are being sarcastic, aren't you :o

It does seem that at least one of these machines exists and is located in Tokyo although I have not seen it myself.
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

I bet it's the very same machine that I talked about above :p

That's ok. They have Sex toy and condom vending machines in some bathrooms in the US, so it's really not the "OH MY GOD" thing that people try to pretend it is.

I'm pretty sure we're talking about USED panties in this thread, which I believe makes it worse than condoms, as the condoms and sex toys for sale in the US haven't been, uh, against the no-no zones of previous users before purchase.

Also, they're in the bathroom, a private area in an otherwise public place. The pictures I've seen of these panty machines have been out in the open, assuming they weren't photoshopped.
I want a clever signature, but I spent all my time trying to come up with a clever post!
