Here is an unconventional alternative to pepper spray.

Hairy stockings sold in China are apparently the latest craze used to ward off sexual predators, according to a user on Sina Weibo -- China's Twitter equivalent -- who posted a photo of the accessory that has gone viral.

"Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out," user HappyZhangjiang wrote on the photo's caption.

The photo shows a pair of legs donning the stockings, which make the limbs look like hairy human legs.

Engineering students in India recently developed anti-rape underwear in the wake of a violent gang rape that resulted in the death of the victim. The underwear was designed to deliver electric shocks to the attacker and comes equipped with GPS that can alert the police and the victim's parents, according to The Times of India.
