Blast Boxers: For The Guy Who Is Really Protective Of His Privates

Leonora Epstein / October 28, 2010

We understand that guys hold their private parts in the greatest of esteem (hence the term “family jewels”), but perhaps some men might be a bit too overprotective of their junk. Which is probably why Blast Boxers exist. Originally developed for men in the military, the underwear features a special high-strength material that acts as penis armor should an explosion go off in the vicinity of his crotch. Assuming he doesn’t work for the Army or in a factory that manufactures firecrackers, the Blast Boxers man must have one exciting social life (or one incredibly weird phobia). [Gizmodo]
