[pct-l] Taking Care of "The Boys"

Straight to the point. Chafing of private areas.  On long hikes, I get a
rash right... Well, ... In the "taint" zone.  Technically defined as that
area that taint quite the (front parts) and taint quite the (back parts)-
that area right between.  I have found body glide works as I suspect other
"lubes" would. I am looking for a better solution.  I was wondering what
others do or if I am the only one.  Strange subject in public (actually
typed pubic and had to back-space).  However, it needs to be addressed.

I have found this area to be susceptible due to lack of fabric wicking.  I
think a good fabric layer that was really "there" would help.  However, on
shorts, underwear, etc. there is an air gap where the front fabric leaves
"the boys" and eventually makes contact again - further back.  I thought
about a thong to get fabric "there", but I am just not pretty enough to pull
it off.  I am imagining some sort of polyprop under garment that has a large
opening in the front (like an under wire bra without the wire) that would in
essence ride up under "the boys" leaving them free in front.  This might
keep the fabric "there" since it would not have the air-gap problem
associated with being lifted away from the body by... "the boys".   Of
course, like a push up bra this might visually give me more credit than I am
due as I saunter (oh and yes I would saunter) down the trail ...

Strange subject I know, but hey - it's the trail.
