Senator David Leyonhjelm has defended crude comments directed at Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young during a debate on women's safety in Parliament.

Mr Leyonhjelm this evening confirmed he told the Greens Senator to 'stop shagging men' and then told her to 'f*** off' when she confronted him about it.

Senator Hanson-Young told parliament the Liberal Democrats senator made the remark during a vote on a motion about arming women with tasers to combat violence.
