Gripping

I asked my friend today why it didn't hurt her to ride in shorts in a hunt seat saddle. Because when I ride in shorts (in a hunt saddle), I get saddle sores. And she told me that when she rides, she grips with her thighs, however I grip with my knees, which apparently gives me closer contact with the saddle. So what part of your leg do use more to give you better contact with the saddle?

The stirrup leathers eat me if I wear shorts.

I know, they did that to my legs, too.
