    Irritation from dry masturbation

    An_260598 posted:
    Masturbating without using a lube (one made for the purpose, mind you) is a terrible way to treat your penile skin. It can cause severe irritation, bruising, and eventually, even loss of sensation. It's important to choose a water-based lube without fragrances (or flavors) or warming agents that can irritate the skin; and men who do develop chafing problems can benefit from a penis health creme made with Shea butter and vitamin E. These ingredients can soothe and heal, as well as preventing loss of sensation that can diminish your enjoyment in masturbation and sex.
