AR Wear's Anti-Rape Underwear
Is Anti-Rape Underwear a Scam?
Unfortunately, sexual assault and rape crimes happen more often than not. In the US, it is reported that 1 in every 4 female students on campus fall victim to sexual assault. Regardless of age, race, or location, women often feel unsafe when out at night or alone. Due to rape culture, the crime has often been minimalised. 2016 saw many rapists get off with slaps on the wrists, only making the crime seem less and less serious. There are many other self-defense weapons that females can use for self-protection, pepper spray being one of them, however, none of them guarantee the prevention of clothes being torn off. While the fundamental problem of rape does not have a quick solution, today we are seeing opportunities within technological advancement that may help prevent rape.

AR Wear has created an anti-rape underwear that provides additional security to women who are seeking protection against rape attempts. "We developed this product so that women and girls could have more power to control the outcome of a sexual assault. We wanted to offer some peace of mind in situations that cause feelings of apprehension, such as going out on a blind date, taking an evening run, “clubbing”, traveling in unfamiliar countries, and any other activity that might make one anxious about the possibility of an assault."
Using innovative techniques in enhancing materials and using a unique locking device, AR Wear has created a pair of pants that cannot be pulled off, cut, or ripped. The pants have been structured so that they can not be pulled off from the waist down or from the legs up.
After launching a campaign on INDIEGOGO, AR Wear received much outrage due to their seemingly factless campaign. Those in opposition argued that in some cases, underwear that is locked on could prevent EMT/Medical Professionals from doing their job in case of an emergency. They also commented that the underwear was only made in one size and did not include underwear for men. As well as providing no factual evidence or statistics to support their campaign, funding has been donated.
