Opinion: Man Ejaculates During TSA Pat Down, The Tall Tale

Over the next few weeks, millions of people will be packing up and traveling for the holidays via aircraft and will have to encounter the wretched pat-downs and full body scan through TSA at airports nationwide.

Plenty of travelers have publicly expressing their concern regarding the scanners and aren’t the least bit interested in the alternative pat down. I don’t see anything terribly wrong with the full body scanners other than the potential to harm neurons in the body. Although doctors claim it is safe, the scanner is still something to be wary of, if you travel a lot during the year.

As for the pat-down, I can see how someone will feel uncomfortable getting touched from head to toe by a stranger. However, any person who loves to party may be used to this by now. Hasn’t anyone ever been to a club?

As long as I know no one is getting into the club with a gun or makeshift weapon, I am perfectly fine with security patting us all up and down.

Traveling at the airport is no different. We as Americans are so concerned with being “sexually touched” that we are forgetting the issue- our safety and our protection. I want to be sure that when I am getting on a plane, I will land safely without my life being at the hands of anyone other than the pilot and God.

Therefore, touch me as you need to, just hurry up, because my flight is about to take off.

Of course, I say it can’t be that bad, because I haven’t travelled on a plane since the new guidelines have been put into action, but I have been to a club though.

Despite TSA’s efforts to appease people and make sure we know it is just a procedure, more and more people have come out to news outlets to complain about the touching and frisking. Even Khloe Kardashian told George Lopez, “…they basically are just raping you in public.”

Is there something we really aren’t seeing? Is it actually that bad?

Well, last month, an interesting story made headlines. A man was arrested after ejaculating during his TSA pat down.

There are so many things wrong with that outcome, mainly his arrest. Ejaculating msut have been embarrassing enough but to then get arrested?

Yes, he was arrested for sexual assault not the employee. Didn’t his penis get hard as a result of the employee’s hands? Shouldn’t the employee be scolded for being too rough?

The ejaculator was a 47-year-old man named Percy Cummings. He has a piercing on his penis so just about anything to area can get his nerve endings into a frenzy. It’s relatively difficult to stop yourself from being turned on if someone’s hands are reaching back and forth “down there” for an extended amount of time.

Despite all the humor in these juicy details, there has also been discrepancy as to whether or not this story is real. Since making headlines in some outlets, others have questioned its validity just by the sound of the name ‘Percy Cummings.’

This was the original report that became viral:

    A 47 year old gay man was arrested at San Francisco International Airport after ejaculating while being patted down by a male TSA agent. Percy Cummings, an interior designer from San Francisco, is being held without bail after the alleged incident, charged with sexually assaulting a Federal agent.

    According to Cummings’ partner, Sergio Armani, Cummings has “multiple piercings on his manhood” which were detected during a full body scan. As a result, Cummings was pulled aside for a pat-down. Armani stated that the unidentified TSA agent spent “an inordinate amount of time groping” Cummings, who had apparently become sexually aroused. Cummings, who has a history of sexual dysfunction, ejaculated while the TSA agent’s hand was feeling the piercings. The TSA agent, according to several witnesses, promptly called for back up. Cummings was thrown to the ground and handcuffed.

    A TSA spokesperson declined to comment on this specific case, but said that anyone ejaculating during a pat-down would be subject to arrest.

Whether or not the story was fabricated, it sure is funny and the question still stands. Would it be anyone’s fault for getting sexually aroused during a pat down? It’s something to think about as many get ready to travel for the holidays.

What do you think? Are we putting too much thought into the pat-downs and forgetting its main purpose as a precautionary measure?
