Sex itself was a subject of taboo, but people are gradually opening up to be vocal about their issues and thoughts over the topic. One of the topics now coming in discussion is the penis beauty. It may seem bizzare to a few, but not long ago, discussion oon sex also seemed bizzare. So today we discuss what is penis exfoliation and how to go about it so that you avoid the risks involved.

Like vaginal exfoliation was supported through various ridiculous claims, even the penis exfoliation reasons come in many forms and shapes. We will dispel the myths for you. A few of the forums which have been discussing this topic claim that since penises aren’t self-cleaning, they need to be polished regularly to maintain its radiance. Exfoliating is being touted as the cure for all problems, some may be ok like uneven tone or enhanced hygiene but others like lack of pleasure and way to lasting longer should not be entertained. Please note that there are no academic proofs or studies to back such claims but to keep your member clean as well as flexible, doctors recommend to wash and moisturize it regularly.

Some men are outspoken as they see having a smooth penis as a matter of pride and have revealed how they exfoliate their penises. They recommend oil application and even dietary intervention overusing scrubs or loofahs. There are nutrient creams available online for soothing dry, red, cracked or peeling penile skin.

A surprisingly large number of men came together to discuss the topic where some claim that the process makes the penis more attractive for your partner. The other thread on the internet says it improves the quality and duration of sexual pleasure. It might make your partner more adventurous in the bedroom and inspire them to spend more time fondling, stroking and tickling your little member.

Every inch of your body deserves the cleaning and grooming attention, but some men have taken it further ahead to shave regularly, scrub, sand, oil below the belt area to keep it as smooth as possible. They see it as a worthy effort as you would do for your face or hands.

Risks involved in Exfoliating

Now let’s see what some experts and dermatologists have to say about this. Some dermatologists say that the penis has thinner and more sensitive skin; hence, they tend to get microtears during the self-care of exfoliation. They say that sensitization primarily happens in the brain rather than sanding down the dick. It can just elevate any underlying problems.

Experts say that it is necessary to explore the root cause of peeling or cracked skin to find out what’s causing the behaviour to follow the correct medical procedure. Trying different methods to exfoliate yourself is not going to counter the root of the problem.

While there are many products or self-claimed methods available on the internet to help you halt the penile skin-related issues, so many of them don’t have any credible medical evidence to support their claim. Exfoliating may pose your penis as prettier, but there are risks that you should never ignore in the pursuit of your self-love and care.

If you are facing any skin related trouble, you must consult an expert for proper treatment but as experts suggest you should regularly wash, shave, and moisturize the area to keep your penis clean. Healthy skin and the hygiene along will make sex more pleasurable experience for your partner, thereby more enjoyable for you too.

How to exfoliate the penis

But there is nothing stopping you from exfoliating your penis - and here is the safe and right way to go about it:

  1. Use only a mild soap or body wash to wash up the area. Clean the entire shaft, under the foreskin and also the crotch - gently.
  2. Use luke warm water to wash. Dont use hot water. Luke warm warm will promote relaxation of the penile muscles - a definite requirement for the 'hard' work you are looking forward to.
  3. Exfoliate with a gentle scrub. Do it very gently and smoothly. Some imperfections are a result of your genes and some due the fact that entire genital area is always covered. They wont wash/scrub away in one go. So under all conditions, keep it gentle.
  4. Don't ignore the balls. Clean the entire area, including your scrotum and anal area. A gentle scrub of the entire area will get rid of all the funky odours. AGAIN-BE GENTLE. Sanding down the most sensitive area of your body requires all love and care.
  5. Dab dry with a soft towel and apply moisturiser to finish it off. You can use Misters Enhance Intimate Cream.
