    I was talking to this guy about feeling the cold, he told me that athletes wear women's tights
    to keep warm, i told him he must be nuts if i were to believe him, imagine going to a public loo
    and having to disrobe to get your pecker out.
    so was he being honest or just pulling my leg?

    A lot of men do, Captain Kirk wears women's pantyhose when he rides horses. He got Captain Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) to wear them.

    But there are men's thermal underwear.

    TMI. And no images, please. That would be way, way too much information.


    Modern underwear designed for skiing (for instance) is a lot closer to women's tights than it is to the bulky long johns of old.

    I bough tights for a winter biking. Something like this:

    I am surprised how warm they are.

    You do realize that this post will result in a Trekker mass suicide, right?

    Hey! I said no images, please!

    Next thing you know the female members of our staff will start posting images of men in tights that absolutely fry their brains.

    It is well documented that the sight of women in bikinis fry men's brains: http://www.jstor.org/pss/10.1086/525505. (And yes, this journal is listed in Reuter-Thomson.) I'm sure a similar effect exists on women. The advertising world certainly must think this effect exists.

    For everyday use I just use thermal underwear, but I do a lot of biking up here no matter the weather. When I'm biking in January or early February it's usually in excess of -40C and for those days I wear biking tights and thermal underwear.

    I think Borek would look good in panty hose, as long as he shaves his legs first.

    -40C?

    Skins are pretty popular these days. My sister wears them for exercise, but so do plenty of guys. The compression they provide enhances oxygen flow to the muscles apparently.

    I used to run, but I wore shorts. :P

    I'm sure he really meant -40F.

    Yep I'm serious.

    Nope, -40C, and that's just landlocked central Saskatchewan for you...
    The coldest average temp in Saskatoon is -23C, but it can be much, much colder than that.

    ^-40C is -40F yeah? they're the same.
    I don't even wear tights or thermal underwear when I ski. Just under armour coldgear sweatpants and snowpants. I guess they might be warm. I never tried it.
