    Expert help please! Sex on the beach yay or nay?
    eurogirl230 posted:
    I've read that sex on the beach is not good for either person's genitals. I had sex on the beach last night and I have irritation on my genitals, the best way I can describe it is its like having a rug burn but I'm pretty sure it was the sand. Can that happen? And what can I use to help heal it?

    Thank you!

    Well why did you have sex on the beach if you heard that it was not good for you?

    Yes I imagine that it feels like rubbing sandpaper all over your bum. It will heal in time, but I suggest using some beach towels next time.

    Sand is the main reason you shouldn't have sex on the beach. Yes it will feel like a rug burn. No way to avoid it. What you can use to help it heal depends on where the pain is.

    Well, I was a bit intoxicated. But thanks for the suggestion.

    So eurogirl are you ready to give it another go on the beach anytime soon ?
    I'm certain I would have done the same thing if I had been intoxicated as well. It sounds romantic anyway.
    However with your experience I think I will give it a pass.
