A man who has been paying women to give him wedgies for around five years estimates that he's gone through between 110 to 140 pairs of underwear. He said: "Sometimes I will climax as it's happening. Other times it's not until later, I'll be thinking about it and I will probably masturbate to it."
Zach, a 28-year-old retail worker from Virginia, US, believes he's spent around $1,400-$1,500 (£1,070-£1,150) over the years, but insists he tries to space them out because he doesn't want to 'do any damage'.
Zach says the fetish 'unfortunately turns him on', as he explained to LADbible: "I know there's way worse in the world but I also can't say that I love the fact I enjoy having a woman shove my underwear up my ass and ripping my underwear off.
"It's kind of like a weird thing and I'd rather have a partner don't get me wrong, but I just have really bad luck with women so I don't know how I'd be able to have that discussion with a future partner."
Zach didn't always enjoy being wedgied. When he was a child, his underwear was pulled up by a girl in the classroom and during his teenage years it also happened to him, which he thinks is the reason for it 'rubbing off' to a point where he stopped disliking it.
He continued: "It always hurts of course, obviously, but it just started to not bother me as much. There were times where, for example a while ago I had a dom who told me to go out in public and get a wedgie so I went to a store and I asked a girl.
"I just walk up and I would just ask and be like 'hey, do you mind if I ask you a question? It's weird but it's not too weird,' and they'd be like 'yeah sure,' so I would just tell them like maybe I lost a bet or something like that and they would just find it hilarious and just do it. I would tell them upfront and be like 'if you want, I'll give you some money'."
Apparently, the wedgie market is somewhat competitive because it used to be the case that Zach would put an ad on Craigslist for a $20-$30 (£15-£23).
He went on: "I kind of save it. I don't want to do any damage to myself so I try to space it out. I would probably say [I've spent] maybe like $1,400-1,500 over the last five years.
"Realistically I'd say [I get wedgied] every few weeks or so, but there are also long stretches of time where I don't - most recently was on 29 November."
Although Zach has had different women giving him wedgies, one thing is for sure - the service provider must *always* be a woman.
"I'm not interested in a dude doing it," he said. "Unfortunately, a lot of the time they're not interested in continuing it for whatever reason, I'm not sure - you'd think for $100 it's an easy way to make money.
"You want to be respectful if someone says they're not going to do it anymore then that's it and you just appreciate the time you had."
Zach said that it's not only wedgies he's had in the past, as he explained: "Unfortunately it turns me on. A lot of the times I'll set up like a session so it's not just getting wedgies, there's a bunch of other stuff included as well.
"A lot of the times there's humiliation or bullying - I've got my head flushed in the toilet quite a few times, I've been made over and had lipstick, makeup and hair done, a lot of women - shockingly more than I ever expected - they like to do forced fem that's why I wear women's underwear.
"I'll get a text saying 'panty check' and I'll have to show that I'm wearing women's underwear. It's a lot of variations. There's spanking, it's all like grade school bullying.
"One dom I used to talk to would have parties and a few times I got group wedgied by her friends, they actually managed to pick me up and drag me around and carry me.
"Sometimes [I will climax] as it's happening, other times it's not til later like I'll be thinking about it and I will probably masturbate to it."
He concluded: "I'd like to stop, kind of, it's something I've thought about before and I've tried to go cold turkey and stop doing it. Unfortunately, as I'm sure everyone knows, once you're in the mood it's kind of hard to just fend that off.
"I would not be against the idea of stopping, but at this moment in time it's not like I'm getting off in any other way so I may as well enjoy what I have while I have it."
Each to their own, I guess.
