Puffy Coats aren't Perv-Proof, but they help.

It was about 9am this morning and I got off at 72nd street to transfer to the downtown 1. The platform was pretty packed and I though to myself that a train hadn't come in a while, regardless of how packed it was I was going to get on. Lucky me (I thought at the time) the train showed up a couple of minutes later. We all crowded on. And if you're in NYC you know the trains can get super packed at this time. I was right at the door and someone squeezed in behind me. I didn't give it much thought. A little into the ride i think i felt something on my butt but I couldn't be sure because I had on a long, down coat (thank the Lord for this). I started to feel uncomfortable and I pushed my pelvis forward so that my ass was no longer rubbing against anyone. I also moved myself to the side a little but there wasn't anywhere to go.

At the next stop the guy got off and I looked dead at him and saw that his hand was covered in cum. I panicked and looked at my coat and sure enough there was cum all over my coat.

Ladies, this guy is still out there and I'm going to keep my guard up and if I see him again (and I feel that I will) I'm getting a picture. I was in complete shock when this happened so I was a bit flustered but now during my commutes I'm going to try to find him. That smug look as he got off is forever etched in my mind.
