Apple's Touch ID lets you unlock your new iPhone 5S with more than just your fingerprint. Fox News reports that one writer from the site DigitalTrends.com tested the limits of the Touch ID feature -- and claims he could his private part to unlock his new phone.

"Now that finger alternatives are a thing, I wanted to test the limits of what Touch ID will allow," DigitalTrends.com's Andrew Couts wrote on the site. "I went with the most secure body part I could think of -- and all I will say is that I had to take off my pants."

Couts tried his elbow, a knuckle and many other body parts before using his nether region, which he says "was a breeze" to use.

Couts isn't the only one using unconventional parts to unlock the iPhone 5S. One man used his toe and nose, while another used a cat's paw print.
