LJ cuts don't seem permissible in comments, so TMI follows.

I very rarely wear actual tights, but I get this with running leggings or rowers' lycra. Or even with proper trousers, especially when walking in cold weather, especially if I haven't done much walking lately, especially if I've been cycling everywhere or uniformly sofatuberous. An even red rash covering the thighs, and agonisingly itchy, it can be.

If I do enough exercise of the right type it pulls out all the hairs susceptible to getting caught and the problem ceases. I'll spare you the full detailed description of a rower's baby-smooth gracilis complementing his mighty bearlike quadriceps.

Obviating this by voluntary epilation would be the deed only of someone who took his cycling far too seriously: I'm not yet a Middle-Aged Man In Lycra. Rowers, even paunchy old ones with deluded ideas of their former athleticism, simply don't go in for it. Even though we form the patriarchy, we're just as constrained by cultural norms.

You and me baby, we ain't nothing but MAMILs
