    Does anybody know if its unsafe to tan with your dick hanging out and uncovered? Ive tanned twice before and both times i covered it. I was just wondering if it is safe to let it tan with the rest of the body.

    i always tan with my cock out... just be sure to move it every once and a while so its tanned on both sides and so that it doesnt leave a "dick tan-line" on ur stomach...

    There were four guys in my senior class from highschool years ago, in the summer between their junior and senior year, went on a raft trip on a river in Idaho. Since they were in an isolated area with no people around, they all stripped off all of the clothing they were wearing. Yes, you guessed it, they burned all over, including a couple of areas of the body that normally do not see the light of day, including their dicks!!!

    I don't know about tanning beds, but when I go to nude beaches I put sunscreen on my dick and have never had a problem. But yeah...I'd feel a bit iffy in a tanning bed...

    It's the same as the rest of your body. It will tan easily enough, but will burn if you overdo it. Take it easy and build up the tan and you should have no problems.

    I tan in an upright booth, and never wear anything. However I do ensure that I always use tanning lotion, and if I sense that my cock is getting a bit to many UV rays, I just cover it with my hand for a few minutes. Otherwise, I've never had any problems.

    My daughter went to a pagan festival and went nude for a good portion of the proceedings. She sun burned her nipples. Not too funny. They peeled and was very annoying and painful.

    Same with yout willie. Keep it covered...

    Your dick will tan (or burn) just like any other body part. Use the appropriate SPF lotion and you'll have no problem.

    If you are circumcised you should cover it. The head was never intended to be exposed to the sun. Studies show that men who are circumcised and tan have a high rate of penile cancer on the glans.
