Head butts, heal kicks, knee bombs, and line drives – when it comes down to dads and kids, a jab to the family jewels is disturbingly (and painfully) all too common.
Whether it’s some sort of innate self-preservation/sibling prevention thing, or just a head height/nut placement thing, the truth is getting bashed in the balls happens. A lot. So much so, in fact, kid proof underwear have now been invented.
Yes, kid proof underwear for guys is now a thing.
Created by Fridababy, FridaBalls are designed to “add branches to your family tree,” though that shouldn’t dissuade those of us who are 100% DONE reproducing from investing in our other half’s crotchal comfort.
These trousers come with a reinforced protective pouch, negating the need to rock a full on athletic cup every time you approach your child. They also come with a no-slip waistband, and breathable, wicking fabric, ‘cause nobody likes roasting their raisins.
With their patent pending Heirloom Conservation Technology (no, seriously this is a thing) these underwear are, without a doubt, what Batman would wear if he ever procreated.
There is one sad caveat: they’ve already sold out on the company’s website. ::shakes fist at the unfairness of it all:: But if you’re interested, you can sign up to be notified when they’re back in stock.
At this point in time, these wonder undies come in two sizes – a S/M and a M/L, and cost $27.99. At first glance that might seem kind of steep, but ask any dude who’s been socked in the sack, and I’m sure they’d say a little extra protection is priceless.
