In Germany, an entrepreneur developed a product called “Safe Shorts” that claims to protect women from sexual assault while jogging.
Sandra Seilz invented Safe Shorts after she was allegedly attacked by three drunk men while jogging in the woods. The shorts are made of the same material as bullet-proof vests and designed with a lock and an alarm as a “protective shield” for a woman’s private area, in order to keep joggers safe from sexual predators.
The instructions on the company’s website read, “Get into your safe shorts, pull the ergonomically-placed high-tech cords that are tear and cut-resistant until the trousers are in place.”
“The cords are fixed to a power alarm. Should someone try to get into the trousers of the jogger the alarm will go off at a volume of 130 decibels, which is supposed to scare off the attacker.”
Seilz said, “Safe Shorts provide triple protection against sexual assaults, and we’re very proud of them.” She added that in case of an emergency, wearers should not be worried about the material since ambulances are equipped with electrical devices that can cut the strong material.
Safe shorts are flying off the shelves in Germany and are already sold out.
It has been reported that the company has received orders from Japan, Finland, Sweden, Italy, Taiwan and the United States.
