Women have never experienced it, but if you are a man, chances are you have zipped up and caught some skin. OUCH!
Well, according to the Monday, January 14, Huffington Post, men may soon be able to live without that fear if a fashion project by Octavio Marc David Silva, actor, musician, and designer of “The Hot Child” clothing brand is successfully funded by the popular community funding platform Kickstarter.
The project has only raised $1,123 of the $25,000 goal; there are 47 days left in the campaign.
It’s actually a great real life physics force problem.
The Kickstarter project is called ”The First Anatomically Designed Jeans With A Man's Junk In Mind,” and the introduction boasts, "No more scrunching, squishing, squashing or splitting of the goods".
Silva’s mother Catherine Williams, implied in an interview with Fashionista, that the motivation for the safeguards such as an all button fly was hers, but the design of the anatomically correct pouch she credits her son with.
Williams told Fashionista her own horror story, not unlike the one depicted in "There’s Something About Mary."
“He was like 16-years-old, and he actually got the skin caught in a zipper. And it was just like a screech from the bathroom… and I just knew! It’s one of those times in a mother’s life where you just think, you know, I hoped this would never happen in my lifetime! And of course it did. So that inspired the buttons. So we will be buttons for the duration!”
The Huffington Post Miami reported that The Hot Child Junk jeans are six years in the making.
Silva and his mother hope to get them in stores like Macy’s for the price of about a “C-note.”
And $100 is a small price to pay if the other alternative is risking a trip to the emergency room while the paramedic yells, “We’ve got a bleeder!”
