Only one prototype of the device was ever made and it appears that it was never used in the field.
CIA director Richard Helms blushed when he saw it demonstrated. The good director never approved it for use. “Gentlemen do not read each other…”
The CIA’s fake scrotum concealment device was thought to be discreet enough that enemy officers would never think to thoroughly search the genital area.
PS — Can you imagine what Austin Powers — “Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later?” — would have made of that one? “Hey baby, do you want to tune my radio?”
On a more serious note… Maybe, we got it all wrong all those years. Perhaps, Monica was just getting Bill’s radio antenna out so that he could speak with Langley?
