Pinworm Containment Mechanism

Textured rotating buttplug

Pinworms spread by laying their eggs at the entrance of the anus at night, with the resultant irritation causing the carrier to scratch themselves in their sleep. Eggs on the fingers then get spread around the next day as the carrier goes about their business.

Because pinworms are non-symptomatic in adults (apart from a scratchy butt in the night that they may not remember) most people don't take medication to eliminate them.

The spread of infection could be prevented if everyone wore a textured rotating buttplug. If itchy in the night, the wearer could reach down and turn a key-like handle to achieve satisfaction without coming into contact with the eggs thanks to the guard between the handle and the plug itself.

       Amazing. Just truly amazing.

       You might be able to do something with copper, it's a pretty good biocide. For example, a pair of copper foil lined underpants...

       Or alternatively an expanding ray, so it expands them (after they come out) to a point you can beat them to death with a toffee hammer.

       As if anyone needed a reason!

       I always recommend a plaster, which has also always worked for us.

       [marked-for-tagline]... and life lesson.   

       //copper foil lined underpants//   

       If you wore copper foil lined underpants and a tin foil lined hat, would the dissimilar metals generate a voltage and turn you into a kind of human lemon-battery?   

       (I'm desperately trying to think about something other than textured rotating buttplugs, here.)

       More or less speechless than for the pubic silhouette catalogue? That one set the bar for me.

       // If you wore copper foil lined underpants and a tin foil lined hat,   

       Probably yes, especially as sweat is likely acidic. Are you perhaps suggesting some bottom-fitted electric fence to zap said worms as they emerge?   

       You could probably arrange something similar with nylon pyjamas and nylon sheets..

       This buttplug... does it oscillate?

       Is that you, Ben?   

       I used to be of the opinion that all learning has value, but then I clicked, and I want to unlearn it.

       How long have /you/ been on the Interwebs?

       Thinking more on this, orbicular batfish..no sorry, that one just slipped out..containment mechanism..sounds more like a mini-tokomak, what with the magnetic bottle and all.   

       Suspect that having that high-powered a magnet affixed to the nether regions might indeed corral the critters, but play havoc with bird migration...

       I wouldn't suggest discussing this invention at a posh dinner party.   

       You've pictured it, you can't un-picture it.
