Did you know there’s another way for men can protect themselves from being kicked in the groin? Wear a bomb proof underwear, but don’t deposit a bomb in the underwear, that’s not how it works. It will smell.

A British manufacturer has unveiled bombproof boxer shorts that it claims can save the lives of soldiers in Afghanistan by protecting their vital organs from improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

The lightweight shorts are worn under normal combat gear, reports the British tabloid The Sun, and protect soldiers where standard-issue body armor does not. Andrew Howell, head of BCB International, which developed the clothing, told the Sun he thinks the shorts can save lives

“We believe they will make a real difference,” Howell said.

Especially getting kick in the groin, that will not hurt men, but it might turn women on.  What’s next bullet proof underwear?
