There's something undeniably attractive about having sex on the beach – which may be why it's so popular in erotic stories and films. In real life, having sex on the beach can be somewhat problematic – not to mention illegal. Because of the risks involved, guys are discouraged from trying it. For those who are going to do so anyway, the following penal protection and other tips may come in handy, both in terms of penal health and in terms of (hopefully) not ending up the focus of an arrest for public indecency.

Tips

– Take time of day into consideration. The best time to try sex on the beach – that is, the time when one is less likely to get arrested – is at night. In the first place, the beach is going to be considerably less crowded after dark. Sure, there may be a few people out strolling under the stars and getting their feet wet in the surf. But the big crowds will be gone, so there is likely to be much more privacy. And, of course, at night there is little light, so a couple is much less likely to be seen. And in terms of penal protection, engaging in sex on the beach during the daylight hours increases the chance of sunburn on the penal; there is no possibility of moonburn.

– Avoid a crowd. If a couple really wants to try beach sex during the day, they need to find the most secluded spot possible. Look behind some sand dunes or over a patch of tall grass. And there generally fewer people farther away from the water. Perhaps above all, make sure there are no kids nearby; that's really asking for trouble.

– Bring towels – or a tent. There are little pop-up tents made for the beach which can provide a fair degree of privacy – and they are probably the best bet for having sandy sex without getting in trouble. Barring that, a couple needs to bring several towels. One or two are needed for lying down on; others are needed for covering up whoever is on top. (Another penis protection angle: towels help keep sand off the penis and the vagina – and much sand on either one can make the sex less appealing.) A couple of big beach umbrellas can also help keep prying eyes away from private parts in action.

– Consider positions in advance. Because of the way sand can seem to get into anything on the ground – even a towel – the most practical positions are those in which the penal and vagina are off the ground – doggy style, standing up, etc. But these are positions that are bound to draw attention. Traditional missionary, even if done with relative restraint, is also a bit hard to disguise. The best option may be spoon positions, with the man and woman lying on their sides, his front against her back. This can give the impression that the two are merely cuddling. If the disturbing is done slowly and gently, it is less obvious that there is some serious penis-vagina action occurring.

– Wear a condom. Even if this is a long term monogamous relationship, a condom provides penal protection from stray grains of sand.

Again, having sex on the beach carries significant risks – so those who indulge, please take all possible precautions.

Penis protection does not end with tips for beach sex. They also include maintaining good penis health through the daily application of a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Search out a crème with vitamin A. Why? Because vitamin A has powerful antibacterial properties which can help fight undesired penis odor. The crème should also include alpha lipoic acid. This potent antioxidant fights excess free radicals which have the potential to inflate oxidative stress on delicate penis skin.
