I’m one of the few girls I know who grew up in Japan and was never groped by some shameless pervert on the subway (I have a mean glare). You hear about it, you read about it, and it really is that common. Well, now, a mail order catalog is selling these subway rings to men who don’t to be mistaken for a pervert. On super crowded trains, standing commuters quickly run out of stationary rings to hold on to, and have nowhere to put their hands. That’s probably what inspired gropers to fondle in the first place, but it’s also a looming dilemma for non-perverts as to where they can put their hands in order not to be mistaken for one.
This unique product, which sold out immediately, promises to solve that dilemma. I think. I mean, I guess if you were a conniving fondler you could always use the ring to do something totally inappropriate.
