Chastity Belt Sets Off Airport Metal Detector

» From the Sex Toy Department

“When a 40-year old British woman set off a metal detector’s alarm at Athens airport, bemused security staff found that it was caused by a chastity belt she was wearing… ‘It happened a few days before Christmas.

But if that were the case, wasn’t it really a breach of airline security? How could they be sure, in these troubled times, that she didn’t have plastic explosives packed into her vagina? Put a match to her pubes and the whole plane could explode…
