Hairy Leg Stockings Repel Would-Be Attackers

Hairy Leg Stockings Repel Would-Be Attackers

Chinese idea to fend off potential attackers could also be used to deter needy partners.

An innovative new way to prevent potential sex offenders and aggressive men from approaching or attacking young women has appeared on the scene in the form of a pair of stockings. What makes this pair of stockings different is that they’re completely covered in hair.


The stockings first appeared on Sina Weibo – China’s answer to Twitter – via one of their users @HappyZhangJiang. His original message read:

Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out.

While they may not be the most effective item when it comes to preventing sexual assaults, they definitely get points for being inventive. If their purpose as an anti-attack device doesn’t catch on, maybe they could be used against boyfriends and husbands as a deterrent.
