For some reason the thought of wearing while traveling/flying is really appealing and energizing to me. I'm not sure if it is the anonymity of travel that appeals to me or the convenience of not having to use airplane bathrooms; but I just always find myself obsessed with wanting to wear while flying. While I know this has been a topic on adisc before, I had an experience with it today that I wanted to share.
I took a long plane ride today into Atlanta and I wore all the way - including going through security. At that point in the journey, my padding was pretty thick (two diapers with baby-diaper stuffers and a plastic cover...) and I'm sure it was fairly noticeable - even while dry. Maybe its the exhibitionist in me but I kind of wanted to be selected for extra screening; yet at the same time that thought was frightening and so I also tried to 'fly under the radar.'
When I got up to the ID checker TSA person, she kind of looked me up and down, smiled, and kindly invited me to go into the 'family/extra time' line.
I was traveling by myself; so this seemed unusual except for my padding. As I went through the metal detector, the alarm went off because I had forgotten (honestly) to take off my belt presumably because of my preoccupation with the diapers.
To make a short story pithy, I ended up getting 'wanded' and patted down (the non-enhanced methinks). I also had my bag rifled through (complete with extra diapers and changing supplies). The TSA people were all professional about my obvious undergarment and 'needs'. I actually felt a bit guilty about putting them in that uncomfortable situation purely for my amusement (I am not incontinent). Yet at the same time it was quite interesting to see how 'average' people respond to that kind of thing.
Do you ever wear by choice in airports? Are there other 'locations/situations' like this that for some reason have an unexplainable appeal to you?
