The Sore Male Organ and Outdoor Intimacy – Cautionary Measures for the Nature-lover

If one can believe the surveys, outdoor intimacy is on the rise, as more men risk the chance of embarrassment and/or a potentially sore male organ to enjoy the great outdoors in a special way. One survey, for instance, claims that as many as 35% of couples report that they have had outdoor intimacy. While the riskiest aspect of this activity is, naturally, the chance that one will be caught, there are a few general male organ health  issues that also need to be considered by those adventurous enough to try this.

A word of caution

There are two kinds of outdoor intimacy: that which occurs outdoors but in one's own well-secluded backyard, and that which occurs where there is a greater risk of being caught, literally, with one’s pants down. In general, the former carries little actual risk: as long as neighbors are unable to see into a person's outdoor space, folks are generally at liberty to go about their business as they wish.

With encounters taking place off of one's own property, the risk is much higher – and carries the chance that one will be caught, arrested and fined for indecent exposure, public lewdness or other charges. Men should think very carefully before exposing themselves to this risk.

Things to watch out for

Avoiding a sore or damaged male organ due to outdoor intimacy-related activity is essential. Here are a few tips that can help with this:

1) Avoid the sun. If engaging in coupling on a very hot, sunny day, it's best to find a location with shade or other solar protection. Although the male organ is likely to be fairly covered during missionary-style encounters, other forms of sensual activity can leave the male organ exposed to the risk of sunburn.

2) Watch out for high grasses. While tall grass offers the benefit of concealment from prying eyes, it also increases the chance that a man's male organ will brush – perhaps repeatedly – up against the grasses. In many men, this could bring about an allergic reaction affecting the male organ skin.

3) Know how to spot poison ivy. The last thing a man wants to do is to engage in vigorous coupling only to discover that he is lying on a bed of poison ivy (or poison oak, or poison sumac, etc.) This can create a very painful and inconvenient situation.

4) Keep sprayed. If engaging in extracurricular outdoor activity in an area with insects, it's wise to apply an appropriate insect repellent. Do NOT apply to the private area, but do keep the rest of the body sprayed as appropriate.

5) Bring water and a towel. Many men like to let their male organs bask in the glory of drying juices after intimacy; when outdoors, it's often best to wash and dry off rather promptly; a damp male organ is likely to accumulate dirt, pollen, sand, and so forth, which may result in irritation.

6) Don't forget the lubricant. Sometimes, when a couple engages in outdoor intimacy, there may be different levels of interest, concern, and excitement between the participants. On some occasions, a woman is very interested but may feel fearful of being observed when actually "in the moment," and this may interfere with her natural lubricating process. The wise man will be prepared for this eventuality.

These tips can help a man enjoy an outdoor intimacy experience while minimizing the risk of a sore male organ; but if soreness does result, using a quality male organ health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) may provide relief. The appropriate cream should contain a reliable, high end emollient such as shea butter to moisturize and soothe the affected skin. Another important ingredient to look for is vitamin A; this has anti-bacterial properties, which can help eliminate stray bacteria encountered during the strenuous (if delightful) outdoor activity – and which can also help reduce male organ odor.
