What a great idea! 

It makes me sad though that we live in a world that makes such inventions a great idea…

So we are putting women back into chastity belts?

I see this going horribly wrong. A) if the aggressor is violent enough, because he cannot sexually assault the victim rather than leave her alone, he might resort to others forms of violence against her or even worse, killing her. B) the more comical result of, I know if I had to pee badly enough I wouldnt have time to get the straps off, etc and would be quite embarrassing.

I agree, sad.

I think if a psychopath really wanted to get them off, he would figure out a way, but it would probably involve something sharp and probably would cause injuries to the person wearing them… I shudder to think of it. The shorts also wouldn’t prevent someone from beating up a woman.

But the shorts would probably help in those random situations where someone wanted to take advantage of a woman. Sigh. Depressing.

@AlwaysSunny:  Almost as bad as the anti-rape condom:

@AlwaysSunny:  There is no difference here. Locking up a womens genitals inorder to save her. Sorry but this is just so not empowering for women.

How about instead of spending $5000 on a pair of underwear we spend money teaching men and boys to not rape women and to lobby governments to make the justice system give harsher penalties and to even up the system so that the victims aren’t the ones on trial. Then no one would have to lock up their privates.

I am also sure that if someone had a knife/gun/broken bottle to my throat threatening my life, I would be inclined to unlock the shorts in a heartbeat. These shorts would give no more protection against a rapist than a raincoat.

@Ninteenthchance:  Yeah, I thought so too, at first. But if you think about it… What’s the first thing a guy will do if he experiences sudden agonising pain on his penis? Flinch as a natural reflex or, in the case of the rapist, hit something out of anger/rage. Not the best outcome, but one would presume a punch in the face is “easier” to recover from in comparison to something as permanently traumatising as rape. :/

@AlwaysSunny:  In those societies women would most likely not have cash to spend on a pair of underwear like this. Infact in such countries I would assume that these underwear would be used like I originally said, as a chasity belt that the men can force women to wear. These underwear will not be cheap and the marketing will prey on the fears of women. If we are going to go down this path why don’t we just lock women in the house until we can change society.

@ksus07:  If women actually starting using those the rapists would just insert something as a test first.
