How to prevent scrapes to the penis on a fall ?

So, as you may have guessed from the topic title, I took a fall on asphalt on my MTB and my penis got rubbed hard against the asphalt because I landed with the front of my body. The accident caused a little skin towards the top of the penis to split and it bled a little. I went to the doctor to have it checked out. He gave me a pill antibiotic, it's been about a week now and everything seems to be working fine. My penis has recovered pretty well. But now, of course, is the psychological damage that such an accident can cause to a man.

I want to do something to protect my penis from this happening again. I was thinking about slipping a pair of socks into my white briefs, so that would serve as a soft barrier against scrapes. It could be some other item, like foam or something.

What do you all think about this type of protection ?

Do you have any other ideas that could work ?

You weren't biking through a nudist colony, were you?

Seriously, this seems to be a rare injury to me. At least I've never heard of it occurring before anyway. I think taking the precaution of padding your shorts is unnecessary overkill, however I'm sure it will help impress the ladies.

That must have been some spectacular fall - because you are the first, and only person I've ever heard of to manage to do that. As for all the foam and what not, doubt you'd be comfortable riding that way. You could wear a sports cup, that'll give max protection. But seriously, you weren't riding with your willy hanging out were you?

Get a leather jock-strap. And try to remember to wear your pants the next time you decide to go riding.

Your legs and belly should give enough protection. Most of my falls have been on my side, although I went over the bars once and injured my shoulder and back. My shins have taken plenty of pain from the pedals.

This has to be a joke, right? At the very least about the socks? Right? Right?

If serious: Padded bike shorts/baggies. Duh. Tuck things safely away, and try not to land on Chucky and the twins. I always try to land with my crotch on something soft and velvety, but that may just be me.

I can only imagine how uncomfortable it might be to ride around with socks shoved down the front of your shorts. I mean, out at the bars in town is one thing, but when on the bike???

Well I'm surprised you're surprised. You hit a speedbump, loose control, slip you're foot from the pedal, fall foward, and masturbate with the road. Not as funny as I made it sound, believe me, it hurts a lot. And you panic psychologically. I was wearing white briefs and MTB padded shorts. However, that pad doesn't reach all the way to the penis, unfortunately for me. It's the baby maker, I gotta protect it.

The "baby maker?" How quaint and how not men truly regard this piece of the male anatomy.

Oh yeah laugh at my pain. You guys must understand. It's the most important part of a man's body. It's well being comes before everything else.

No joke at all. And I do wear padded MTB shorts, but that pad doesn't go all the way up to the penis. And If I tuck it down to the pad, won't that cause pressure against the saddle ?

I ain't laughin' man, I feel your pain. It's just that a title like that is hard to resist.

There's only one solution btw and it doesn't work so well on a bike I'd guess, a good ole cup.

Just tuck it into your sock. Works for me.

Rule of life for men: don't sit on your penis.

I'm not going to have a conversation with you about how to tuck your junk out of the way.

Wow. For the record, this is one of the weirder posts I've seen if it's not a joke. I guess you could probably wear a jock strap that would minimally interfere with your shorts. It'd at least be an extra layer of cloth between you and the sidewalk. Realistically though, what do you think the chances of that happening twice are?

So far, you've used the word "penis" 6 times and "masturbate 1 time. You've called your penis a "baby maker", and "the most important part of a man's body".

Are you an 8th grader? Surely you are not an adult.

I know the chances are slim, but now I'm gonna be scared when I go out riding.
