Protecting the Genital Public


James Steidl


In that great American tradition, Jeff Buske saw a gaping hole of opportunity and covered it.

He created a very special men’s brief and women’s panty. Special in what way, you say?

Buske promises that his new skivvies will get passengers through the airport screeners with their dignity intact. They protect people's private parts (or hide their “goodies”) when undergoing medical or security screenings.

The strategically placed inserts are made of powdered tungsten and other metals that won’t set off metal detectors. The inserts are said to be thin and conform to “body contours.” The men's design is shaped like a fig leaf, and women’s is shaped like clasped hands.

Note: Some experts say that it’s unclear whether the underwear could actually lead to an automatic, more intrusive search by the TSA. You can buy a pair here.
