Everybody experiences chafing at some time in their lives, and for many men, that includes male organ chafing. It’s uncomfortable but at least as male organ health issues are concerned it is relatively minor. Still, because it is annoying and in some cases may preclude some sensual involvement, it pays to practice prevention strategies to keep male organ chafing from occurring in the first place. |
What is male organ chafing?
Simply put, chafing refers to any rawness, pain or irritation of the skin caused by friction. In the case of male organ chafing, there can be several causes. Pinpointing the cause can help to develop prevention strategies.
One of the most common causes of male organ chafing is delicate member skin rubbing against a rough (or relatively rough) piece of fabric. This happens more often with men who go commando – that is, who wear trousers without underwear. This is only common sense, as underwear is designed to be worn directly against the manhood and so is typically made of materials that take into account the delicate nature of manhood skin. Blue jeans, linen trousers and woolen pants do not do this – so one way to avoid male organ chafing is by always wearing underwear with trousers.
Sometimes, however, a guy can wear underwear and still experience male organ chafing due to his trousers – but in this instance it is because his underwear or his trousers (or both) is too tight. Without adequate room, any piece of clothing can feel constricting and can create excess friction. So try to find a balance between clothes which do show off one’s form and package and those which are so tight as to cause chafing.
Lack of lubrication is another major cause of male organ chafing. Coupling is all about friction, as it takes a certain degree of friction to stimulate the tender nerve endings on the member and to build upon excitement to release. But sometimes the manhood experiences too much friction, especially when there is not sufficient lubrication involved. For that reason, whether self-stimulating or engaging in partner sensual activity, it is a good idea for a man to keep plenty of lubricant on hand – and on his member.
To fight odor, it’s a good idea to air out the manhood and one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to sleep unclothed. However, sometimes this can lead to male organ chafing, if the bed sheets or linens are too rough against the member skin. Finding softer, less irritating sheets can enable a man to air out his manhood without the risk of chafing.
It’s clear that materials, whether in clothing or bedding, can play a big role in male organ chafing. But it’s not always due to a roughness in the material; sometimes the responsible party is the detergent one uses to clean them. Detergents with harsh chemicals or fragrances can pass those qualities onto clothing and bedding, which in turn can irritate the member and lead to chafing. Using only mild and gentle detergents and cleansers is an excellent way to combat this problem.
Finally, sometimes friction develops from skin rubbing against skin – which can be an ongoing problem for people who are obese. For example, a stomach that hangs low may rub against the manhood, as might thighs that are too fleshly. Getting down to a healthier weight can help to address this problem or prevent it from occurring.
All these male organ chafing prevention tips come down to one thing: keeping the male organ skin protected and well moisturized. One excellent aid in this is the daily application of a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) regularly. When selecting a crème, examine the ingredients carefully. Look for one which contains both a high end emollient (shea butter is one) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). Together, these can help ensure proper male organ skin moisturization. The crème should also include a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to help prevent oxidative damage to the skin.
