Would you go through the 'naked scanner' to save removing your coat?

No, I would not.

What and have a group of security guards laughing at my hideous pregnancy ravaged body?! Not a chance in hell!

TheCrackFox Tue 13-Oct-09 10:02:35

No, I would rather take my coat off.

You can just image 'Dave' sat at his desk in the 'remote location' drinking his coffee, eating his custard creams and looking at all the different boobies.

I wonder how safe it is for pregnant women?

StretchFucksTheMailDaily Tue 13-Oct-09 10:04:53

No, I wouldn't. Have to wonder though, they say it's optional, so won't anybody hiding anything just refuse??

PMSL exactly Stretch

I would. I hate always having to take off boots/bangles/belts...

Morloth Tue 13-Oct-09 10:07:31

Sounds good to me. The removing coats and shoes thing is a PITA, I don't mind if anyone sees me naked.

Needs to be optional though not everyone feels the same way.

StealthPolarBear Tue 13-Oct-09 10:09:08

yes, probably, sound easy enough and I have no shame!
Radiation thing would bothre me a bit

I think "Dave" would have to have years of therapy after seeing my tired body. He could sue his employers for millions.

No f-ing way!

I would - having to remove my shoes and coats, have my bag searched - twice - and trying to deal with two stroppy children and a buggy at the airport - just make it easier ...

What is to say 'Dave' is intersted in Female bodies???

50ftQueenie Tue 13-Oct-09 10:16:50

Well 'Dave' certainly wouldn't be interested in female bodies after seeing mine!

ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Tue 13-Oct-09 10:17:17

Personally, my concern is not 'Dave' seeing a fuzzy image of my naked body, it is a general mistrust of the security measures in place to guarantee the images are destroyed. Although I don't know why this bothers me since I have nothing to hide (piercings, enlargements etc).

IdrisTheDragon Tue 13-Oct-09 10:18:14

I'd be fine with it.

thedollshouse Tue 13-Oct-09 10:20:26

I would just take my coat off. No way would I go through the scanner.

whippet Tue 13-Oct-09 10:22:54

I'd be fine with it I think - it's not exactly a clear image is it?

Just had a bizarre thought - imagine if it was like at a theme park, where they take a picture of you coming down a rollercoaster etc, and by the end of the ride you see all the photos lined up to make into mugs, keyrings...

Could be the same.... grin

gorionine Tue 13-Oct-09 10:26:45

No I would most definitely take my coat off and leave the scanner well away!

StretchFucksTheMailDaily Tue 13-Oct-09 10:29:46

The images could easily be taken by another camera though, phone for eg. before being destroyed. And will all the MPs/celebs go though?? hmm

Madsometimes Tue 13-Oct-09 11:02:19

Oh no, far to embarrassing. I do not have any problems with a pat down at an airport, it is always a woman that is doing it.

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Tue 13-Oct-09 11:18:13

Not in a bazillion years grin

Furball Tue 13-Oct-09 11:35:24

I've already been through!

They had them in Schiphol, Amsterdam 3 years ago.

Didn't know at the time the image would be so clear but there you go
