Forget-Me-Not Panties
Here's something for the jealous, paranoid lover: forget-me-not panties. They're panties with a built-in gps device, so you'll always know where the wearer of them is.

This amazing device will answer all of your questions! These panties can give you her location, and even her temperature and heart rate, and she will never even know it's there! Unlike the cumbersome and uncomfortable chastity belts of the past, these panties are 100% cotton, and use cutting-edge technology to help you protect what matters most.

I think the site is one of the entries for the Contagious Media Project.

True or not, the idea of these panties has a very important logical flaw: if your lover is doing anything that you really need to be jealous of, she won't be wearing any panties at the time....

Also, GPS systems still have some serious bulk to them, and detecting an emitter is an expensive and unreliable proposition..

'Hi honey, would you mind wearing these panties? Don't worry that it feels like there's a watch hidden in the waistband.. oh, and you can't wear any other panties, since I could only spring for one pair..Hmm.. and I'm not sure if they're washable, really...'

Bah.. The jealous mind knows no logic.

...In the press: Catholic Parents magazine. HAHA!

Cute idea, but as Bar suggested, you aren't wearing panties when you' know.

I once took my favorite underwear with me on vacation. Well, much to my horror, the first time I let my underwear out for some air, it took off like a shot, straight for the woods. I called and called until my throat was raw, and looked everywhere, but my underwear was lost. I didn't have time to stay and put up Lost Shorts posters, because I had to be back for a court date involving Public Display of Nu- anyway, I came home, crying my eyes out the whole way. I woke up the next morning, and thought I heard a familiar sound at the door. I couldn't believe my ears, and I slowly pulled the door open. There, standing before me, all wet and bedraggled, was my alcoholic Neighbor Franz. I never found my poor "Underoos", but I hope to this day that he was found by friendly folk, and now lives on a farm. If I had RFID in my underpants back then, I'd still be wearing them... snnff eyeuww

Hairy, I think you should marry me. I love the way your mind works.

Do you *really* want someone whose underwear runs away from him?

LOL, good point, Bobcat. smile
