Eyes off my junk

November 24, 2010 - Rob Weaver
For those timid travelers who fear being selected for a full-body scan at airport security, a man in Colorado has invented underwear that might preserve some dignity. Jeff Buske has developed undergarments which use a powdered metal to create strategically placed designs to protects people's privacy when undergoing security screenings. The inventor says the underwear's inserts are thin and conform to the body's contours, making it difficult to hide anything beneath them. He said they are made from a combination of tungsten and other non-ferrous metals which do not set off metal detectors. The men's underwear feature inserts with a fig-leaf design. The women’s panties include inserts in the shape of clasped hands. An Associated Press story did not mention whether Buske will sell a matching bra. Perhaps he could offer a pair of undies with metal inserts which form letters stating, “There’s no junk in this trunk.” But who would wear them?
