As you have read in the past, groping on the trains in Japan has become such a common problem that some women are using this situation to their advantage by accusing innocent men of touching them - the main aim to get the settlement money from the victim.

Under Japanese law, if one is caught groping, the fine is 50,000 yen.
This is bad because gropers think they can cop a feel and may think "its only 50000 yen."
This is also bad because innocent men are being the subject of extortion. If a woman makes an accusation that you touched her, there is absolutely nothing that you can do as the police wont believe that you are innocent.

But wait! There could be a solution to all of this thanks to the brilliant minds of a company called Mind Bank.
They have developed a pair of gloved called "A Mans Gu Glove" - "Gu" meaning a fist.

The glove basically forces your hand into a fist shape which you cant move at all.
A spokes person for the product says:-

If you have this item then you can get on the buses and trains with peace in mind that you wont be accused of groping.
You cant grope with the palm of your hand and you cant put your hands in your pockets meaning that women around you will also feel safe.
Its a great product for weak men. Wives who are worried can buy this for their husbands. There is definitely a need for this product.

The glove comes with a plastic thing which looks like a hook but not sure what its for?! It will cost you 1,575 yen.

After reading the spokespersons comment I thought to myself:-

...........

And what do some folks at Itai News have to say?

Yeah looks completely natural.
Great for dolphin waxing.
Looks like its made for dolphin grabbing.
Looks like you can fit at least one eye in that.
But you can still grope with the back of you hand.
Might as well wear socks on your hands.
