Posing as a girl interested in joining the venture, we contacted the same user and were told to wear panties and perform sex acts in them. This was followed with questions about body type and education background, as well as requests for nude photos to be sent over.
When TNP identified ourselves, asking why she is selling panties, how many have been sold and if she knew posting obscene photos was a crime, the user stopped replying. The page was also taken down shortly after. There can be an offence if it's the posting of obscene material, but it would be difficult to prosecute.
