Ladies, to keep yourself safe from molesters when you step out, all you need is a pair of hairy tights! Or so believes a user on China’s microblogging site, who has invented a pair of tights that gives the wearer legs with hairgrowth as dense as an Amazonian forest.

The image of the ‘hairy tights’ has gone viral online and is captioned as— Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out. The online audience has been quick to react with some tweeting that they ‘WANT rather than need’ these tights while others commenting— “This will not only prevent perverts, it’ll definitely also prevent handsome guys from approaching you!”

Though it is still doubtful whether these stockings would actually go on sale, there are a plethora of out-of-the-box anti-pervert innovations available.

A South African doctor had earlier devised an anti-rape female condom, Rape-Axe, with jagged teeth-like hooks that latch onto a man’s penis during penetration and can only be removed by a doctor.

Meanwile, a Japanese fashion designer has conjured up a skirt that transforms the wearer into a vending machine to deceive potential attackers.

And a lady can also soon shock a molestor and send SOS SMSes through an electrified bra, which is being developed by a group of young Indian engineering students.
