Chafing

edited May 2009 in Women
was reading about chafing in another thread and I know that Mr DW has to take great care not to chafe, yet I have never suffered from it, on a bike at least :lol:

Is it a man thing? We both where lycra shorts so it can't be that.

  • Chafing sucks... sweaty ball syndrome.

    Loose shorts + tight pants solves that problem though.


    Saw some sort of cream advertised as stopping chafing though. Can't remember what its called.

    So that's:

    Men: 1
    women: 0

    :lol:

    Is it just a man thing then??

    Never had any trouble, personally. Maybe if he ate more pies & drank more ale like me, he wouldn't go so far & it wouldn't be a problem!

    It's a light hearted thread, obviously. If it gets unsuitable and veers too far off, I'll put in another forum, but not yet.

    Hehe, I thought as much!
  • elPedro666elPedro666 Posts: 1,060
    Mostly I was worried where your 'injuries' came from.

    Thinking about it I'd probably rather not know...! :lol:

    Anyone remember lycra? I know it's not cool at the moment but it's soooo comfy on a bike...

    I keep banging on about this stuff, yes it's a bit pricey, but it lasts for ages and it's the only thing that does it for me!

    Look, it's not my fault I can keep going for hours without a rest. I am feeling a little stiff today though after going hard at it last night, hopefully work some of that stiffness out with a good session tonight.

    I woke up this morning feeling a little censored , I don't know what's come over me just lately, I've just not been feeling myself.

    ...indeed, and back to the OP, last time I had a hard one it lasted for four hours, I was so sore afterwards I couldn't walk properly for days! That's why I always use lubrication now.

    Still struggle to do it no-handed for any length of time though (insert Sid James type laugh here)
