Keeping Your Privates Private


Feeling a little camera shy around the new airport security screenings? One Colorado man has you covered.

Over the past week travelers hit the skies with more expected to swarm airports as we approach Christmas. But the new TSA security pat downs and body scanners are making people a little apprehensive. It seems that few people are enjoying their naked image appearing on a screen or being groped by a stranger. So if you’re looking for a little more privacy in the security line a Las Vegas based company has the underwear for you.

Jeff Buske who works at Rocky Flats Gear invented the special underwear which contains a strategically placed fig leaf design for men or clasped hands for women; to protect your privacy and your privates. The design is made from a mix of powdered metals that do not set off metal detectors. Buske says the underwear’s inserts are thin and conform to your body making it difficult to hide anything deemed inappropriate for air travel. No word on whether keeping covered will subject you to a more intense pat down, but at least you won’t be putting on a free show.
