Safe Cuddling

This suit allows for the purely innocent cuddling of children by helping adults to maintain their integrity. When the child wearing the suit is touched for too long or in inappropriate areas of the body an alarm goes off, first gently hinting to potential ambiguities, finally assertively reminding the parent or care-taker and others around of their responsibility.
 
Does our desire to eliminate uncertainties and avoid risk lead us to become even more fearful? Can humour be an appropriate tool for challenging dark and uncomfortable social issues?
