Really, no undies?

I believe there are a few bits of important information that should be included with the purchase of every pair of cycling shorts and shared with every woman who makes the decision to ride her bike.  Information that should be shared but isn’t, for risk of embarrassment or ridicule, or simply because the “right question” isn’t even known.  

If just one person finds a bit of usefulness out of the following, I will deem it a success.
