OH man jailed for posing as underwear researcher

An Ohio man is in jail for posing as an underwear researcher and examining children.

Ken Hawkins is accused of arranging meetings this Spring with parents of at least three children to conduct a marketing research survey involving children's underwear and razors.

While at the house of an eight-year-old girl, he instructed her to try on several pair of underwear while he took notes.

Hawkins then took several measurements of the victim while she wore only the underwear.

Prosecutors said Hawkins also ran his fingers around the waistband and looked at the rear of the panties to check out the labels.

After the victim tried on the underwear, Hawkins gave them a bank envelope with $20 and then left.

Prosecutors said Hawkins then returned home, where he would fantasize about the experience and masturbate.

In another incident, Hawkins met two children and their mother at a high school and took the children into a locker room.

In jail for impersonating an underwear researcher? It's almost like the reporter has a problem uttering the words 'child molester.'

Can’t you be a self-employed underwear researcher?

Or is there even such a thing as an official underwear researcher?

You've gotta feel especially sorry for kids whose parents are such dim bulbs.

And how in the heck did this creepazoid gain access to a high school locker room to do his dirty work??? Is the high school full of dim bulbs, too?

I think the mother should also been sent to jail for being too stupid to raise children.

Good Grief, what ignorance.

Hello Mame, I'm doing research for a leading lingerie company. Wonder if I could take a moment of your time? There's $20 and free product involved.

Gotta think this would work on about 1 in 4 older women.

Dean Martin once said that in high school Frank Sinatra was an amateur gynocologist.

Underwear tester? For real? PUH-LEEZE!

Well Mr. Hawkins, they're looking for underwear testers at the state pen, one of his first subjects will be his cell mate. An obese bull queer man named Popeye. He'd love to make your acquaintance, along with that big plush butt of yours!

I'm sure that some scientist, somewhere, has gotten a grant for this.

legitimate underware researchers are just going to be undermined by this.

Years ago at a job I had we used to get all sorts of weird phone calls like this. I don’t know if we were listed in some pervert directory or what. One guy called about every 4-6 months pretending to be conducting surveys on womens shoes and sometimes lingerie. Another guy called and wanted to know about toilet habits.

People are sick and have too much free time.

Does it matter if the pants in question are Mitt Romney’s magic underwear?

While almost anyone reading this thread would realize this, aren't some things better left unsaid?

DISCLAIMER: I have no quarrel with Mitt Romney or Mormons in general; I just like saying “magic underwear.”

HAHAHA ... great disclaimer. HAHAHA

There are many things I like about him as well, but don’t see him as presidential timber.

FWIW, weren’t we subjected to ‘boxers or briefs’ at one time in recent history?
