You may laugh at this, thinking that I’m not serious, because, really, am I ever serious? But this is serious.
I admit, I’m a little creeped out by the full body scan at the airport. Not being a Victoria’s Secret Model or a Playboy Playmate, I’m not used to showing my junk to just any old body, and the images I’ve seen of the full body scan seem a little, well, personal. I am all for protecting our safety, and I think if given the option of the full body scan or the pat down, I’m willing to risk radiation poisoning for not having hands all up in my personal space.
But maybe this is something to help preserve the privacy of all of our junk.
A company called Rocky Flats Gear has come out with drawers that will keep your private parts tucked safely inside of your unmentionables. That’s right – we’ve gone back to a fig leaf to protect our dignity. These are lead free, radiation protecting undergarments – made for men, women, and children – that you can wear when you travel to protect your family not only from radiation exposure of the full body scan, but also to help those bashful about your bits being out there.
This is what the TSA will see when they scan you. Or what your radiologist will see if you have to go for x-rays for something.
I’m not so sure this is a bad idea. I just can’t think of why it’s a good one.
Check out Rocky Flats Gear for yourself and let me know what you think.
