ar wear no rape Hey, ladies: do you have a problem with perverts? Are you at risk from unwanted pervert advances? Want to feel safe and secure?

Finally, your problems can be alleviated with a new US product described by Guangzhou Daily as the “ultimate anti-pervert underwear”. This product is guaranteed not to tear under the most severe pervert conditions, and can not be cut by even the most lascivious of scissors or blades.

Called “AR Wear” and designed as a full clothing line, the company ran a successful campaign last year on Indiegogo and was able to secure its funding goal. Self-described as “a clothing line offering wearable protection for when things go wrong”, this product is designed to protect women against rape even if they are incapacitated.

The clothing is designed with a possible 132 combination lock that can not be opened without the proper password.

While the US company behind the underwear hasn’t announced plans to expand to China yet, the anti-perv wear has captured the imagination of people in the Middle Kingdom.

Comments about the “rape-safe underwear” from Chinese netizens mostly ridicule the product:

It’s still not as good as one made out of metal.

Do I have to wear it for the rest of my life?

What if you can’t take them off yourself!??!

All I need is to cop a feel.

What if you really have to pee?

A pair of scissors can get rid of this problem, do they need to be taken off?

What about a cucumber?

If they can’t be taken off, then what do you do if they kill you…..

How do you stop me from touching you?

132 possibilities, each possibility given one second, can all be tried within three minutes!


The original report described the underwear as being “impregnable”.
