We like to educate our readers with new Japanese words, which is why we'd like to tell you about burusera, which is derived from bloomer seller, normally a Japanese school girl who sells her panties for profit to rather, erm, needy men. The Mainichi Daily News have an article about the current trend for Japanese school girls that use disabled toilets to take of their used panties and sell on. Apparently the girls prefer this as it allows direct selling, cutting out the middle management of a burusera shop, and the clients are happy to purchase the genuine product, as they are not sure if they are buying authentic used school girls underwear, as a burusera shop may not sell the real thing.
The article also states that the trade is illegal and illicit, girls can earn up to 20,000 yen a pair (that's about $175 USD or £85 GBP) depending on the circumstances and also that "Some of the weirdoes who buy used panties can be really scary", we feel that's a bit of an understatement.
