No mention of Monkey Butt powder? Pilot and all the rest sell?

Other options are DZ Nutts (no I'm not joking) and Chamois Buttr

Cyclists use this to keep the skin intact and you can search that out if your interested in going that route and yep... it's always a funny subject.

Anti Monkey Butt powder is the best!! It eliminates the sweat and irritation from long drives, and prevents it from worsening. It actually heals it and soothes it with the calamine in the powder. Super easy to use, highly recommend it

I can vouch for "Anti Monkey butt powder." 8700 miles on a Harley from Louisiana to Sturgis, to Washington, to California, and back to Louisiana in August heat. No rash or chaffing. Now my face was wind / sun burnt like a MOFO, but that's another topic.

The dreaded "Swamp A$$".. The Anti-Monkey Butt is good but I prefer the good old Gold Bond Medicated Powder. Its like AC for you junk. used to use it in the Army on those long road marches, aka 12+ mile hikes with full kit.

Indeed I agree with those about using Gold Bond. Long drives and walks I’ve taken using Gold Bond has never led me wrong. And it’s fairly cheap too.

Hmmmmm, maybe you could shave your butt and uh, whatever else that needs to be shaved.

I'm not kidding, I do a lot of kayak fishing and you gotta lighten the load so-to-speak to keep from chafing, especially in the summer.

Maybe you could wear bib overalls??
