The Transportation Security Administration has developed new procedures for patting down airline passengers who are selected for additional screening. Here is a sample, devised to address concerns many female passengers had about physically intrusive pat-downs:

TSA policy is that screeners are to use the back of the hand when screening sensitive body areas, which include the breasts (females only), genitals, and buttocks.For non-sensitive areas, including other parts of the torso, screeners are required to use the front of the hand.
You can read the entire list of new screening protocols here.
