This may belong on a running forum somewhere, but I already have an account here so here goes…
I’m fine running in sub-freezing temperatures (20-32 F, -6-0 C) as long as it’s still out, but the second I start running into even a puff of wind my penis basically proceeds to turn into a popsicle, starting at the tip and working it’s way down. It’s incredibly painful, and usually happens when I’m stuck 3 miles from home. I’m then caught in a horrible catch-22 - the faster I run, the faster the wind chills my willy, the slower I go, the longer it takes to get home. My whole body will be toasty warm, except for that one part that really matters.
I consider myself a pretty hardy runner - I’m not the fastest or longest, but I run through 112 degree heat indexes, snow, freezing rain, trails covered in 6-8 inches of water and mud, biting flies, mosquitos, ticks etc. This is the only thing that makes me think “man, no way am I running today…”
Has anyone remedied this problem? Specific brand/product designed for this? I’ve tried googling but got tired of slogging through penis enlargement regimens.
So if I walk into the local running store and hint at my problem, they’ll be able to help me out? Windproof underwear sounds like what I need. If I wear enough layers to keep the offending bits warm (briefs, tights, shorts, sweats/trackie-daks) the rest of me will roast!
I’ve run in the 20’s (F) but have never had the problem. I typically wear just wicking underwear (think Under Armour-type) and running pants, and my little buddy just shrinks like a frightened turtle. It doesn’t feel particularly cold or painful, though, unlike my nipples, which get pointy to the point of bursting.
I’m now in a climate where this isn’t a concern, but during my high school days I was on the cross country ski team. The racing unitards don’t do much at all to stop the wind so we had to improvise.
The best bargain basement solution was to double over duct tape into a thin wind shield. Very low cost, easy to make, and virtually wind proof. You need a tight outer layer to hold it in place and it’s a lot more comfortable if there’s a layer between your precious and the shield. The best outfit for this solution is running tights and briefs with your tape shield in between.
