Are there any other countries where this sort of thing goes on?
Paris-CDG for flights to the US. I was treated worse there than I have ever been in the US and I've been treated very badly in the US (randomly chosen almost every time I fly for search/interrogations and multi-hour interrogations etc).
TSA does not generally fondle your cock-n-ball package. I mean aside from a few pervs they don't usually get in there with their fingers and fully explore the frank-n-beans and it has never happened to me there. They just get very close by slightly touching your balls with the back of their hands while they touch 'where the leg meets the torso' as they put it and this only happens if something goes wrong with the scanners etc. It isn't routine. However the TSA did not seem to tell the French security people about this subtle distinction and presumably the instructions are sufficiently vague that those guys seem to think that a full on prison search is what the US wants. Happened to me. Never had a dude actually grab or squeeze my dick before and I wasn't happy about it. I freaked and pushed the guy down and almost missed my flight. They refused to let me on the plane at first because I didn't want some guy fondling my package and no I am not exaggerating. He was really doing that. As if he was slowly and carefully searching for something that might be hidden under my dick or balls. I tried to explain to them that in the US they don't do that unless checking you into prison or something, but of course they didn't particularly care what I had to say.
I honestly don't know if that guy was gay. While he and I were arguing about his sexual assault on me he claimed not to be, but he would probably say the same even if he were. I don't see how a straight guy could do that job though, but whatever. Whether he actually wanted to do what he did, whether he enjoyed it, was not the point. I felt almost physically sick. I think it gave me a slight taste of what it must be like to get raped. I did not expect to be having some novel homosexual experience with some French airport security guy and I really felt violated and disgusted for days or even weeks afterward.
I actually begged them to let the very pretty French airport security chick standing right there finish the search That would have been fine. Hell I would have payed something for that. She smiled when I asked, but of course they refused. Why I don't understand. I mean they claim it isn't sexual so what difference does it make if the pretty female 'searches' me? Hell it's not like I would have asked her to touch my dick. I just wanted to get on the plane.
Luckily this was France where people do tend to be better/nicer than in the US and another one of the security guys took pity on me (and maybe risked his job) by searching me without touching my genitals at all. What was weird was that he could not promise me in advance that he wouldn't grab my dick. He made me understand that he understood what I wanted and that I shouldn't worry, but he apparently was not allowed to actually promise me in advance that he wouldn't sex me up. I decided to trust him and indeed he didn't get anywhere near. My experience makes me wonder why they don't insert gloved fingers into females to make sure they aren't hiding anything up there. Seems unfair. If they are going to fully explore every millimeter of male genitals they should be doing the same to the females. Of course they really shouldn't be doing any of this. The vast majority of countries in the world don't and I'm pretty sure France only does this ritual (male only) sexual molestation for flights to the US.
