"Don't Touch Me There": Mood Music for Your Next TSA Pat-Down

Posted: Updated:

The Transportation Security Administration is apparently taking a very hands-on approach to airport security these days with their new and supposedly improved pat-downs. And while I enjoy a good groping under the right circumstances, I tend to prefer said touching occur once I arrive at my final destination. I also prefer that any pat-down be performed in the context of my committed, monogamous relationship with my beautiful wife rather than by a same gender officer in a public space with poor lighting and firearms nearby. Call me a romantic, but I also like a little nice music and possible candlelight -- though I recognize that lit candles at the airport might prove problematic on some level. Here then is some loosely fitting mood music for your next airport close encounter.
