Colorado Inventor Creates Junk-Hiding Underwear

ANNALS OF NO JUNK TOUCHING
DailyFeed
With new stories coming out daily about outrages in airport security lines -- cancer survivors left covered in urine, a young boy patted down shirtless -- Americans continue to be outraged over Transportation Security Administration workers’ new-found enthusiasm for looking at, and touching, their junk. So it was only a matter of time before some wily entrepreneur found a way to capitalize on fliers’ fears.

Enter Jeff Buske and his fig-leaf underwear.

Buske, an electrical engineer from Colorado, says he was concerned about the radiation levels involved in the TSA’s new X-ray nudie-scans. So he invented a line of underwear that covers the wearer’s junk with a fig-leaf patch -- or a pair of folded hands, for women -- made with metals designed to block the scanner’s view of that private area while protecting it from potentially harmful rays.

The protective undergarments can be bought for under $20 a pair at rockyflatsgear.com, which also sells X-ray-blocking bra inserts and even T-shirts that cover the entire torso, for those concerned about the organs above the waist.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that scanner-blocking inserts won’t raise TSA workers’ suspicions, leading to the much-dreaded grope-down. So in the end, flying still means your junk is never really safe.
