Want a minister in your knickers?

According to Ananova, Uzbek government is showing an unseemly interest in the nether regions that were considered, up to now, part of people's private domain.

Fur-lined underwear has been banned in Uzbekistan after authorities deemed it too sexy.

Sales of the furry slips have rocketed in temperatures that have hit the region of below minus 20C.

But the government has now banned the lingerie saying they want to protect citizens from "unbridled fantasies" caused by wearing the soft fabric.

I wonder what kind of "unbridled fantasies" that specific underwear could cause? Any guesses?

P.S. There are no pictures on the Internet, unfortunately. Or fortunately...
