A start-up company in New York has come up with a new line up underwear that can be locked and is rip proof and is currently being marketed online as an 'antirape' wear.
Developed by AR Wear, the underwear is actually a pair of form-fitting shorts that come with a combination lock on the waist which prevents anyone else from removing it without the consent of the owner. It also as a 'protective skeletal structure' which makes it stretch, rip or cut proof.
The product has been developed on the idea that resisting rape reduces the risk of rape without increasing the risk of violence. The company has launched an online crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo.com through which it hopes to raise around $50,000 and has so far managed to collect $27,400.
