There's nothing quite like the feeling a penis gets when it's being handled and fondled, stroked and appreciated. There's also nothing quite like the feeling of a rough, calloused hand on a guy's Johnson to make this experience go from exquisite to excruciating. In such cases, glove love may be an appropriate alternative and may be necessary to ensure a guy is practicing protective penis care on his rod.

Whose hand doesn't matter.

Whether the situation is a man pumping up and down on his own tool or another person administering the master strokes on a guy's penis, it's essential that the fondler's hands are not going to cause pain or damage to the equipment in question. Not only is this unhealthy, but clearly a hand that is too rough is likely to have a de-sensitizing effect on the penis, quite possibly bringing about a loss of erection and making the entire effort all for naught.

Bare is not always best.

For whatever reason, most men have a hang-up about having their junk touched by a hand that is covered. Every so often, if it is clearly presented as a kind of semi-kinky excursion, a man enjoys the feel of a gloved hand touching his member or the playfulness of a silk scarf being run across his erection. But if a glove or other covering is to be used regularly, it seems somehow unnatural.

The fact is that there's absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the sensation of a covered hand wrapped around one's manhood on a regular basis, especially if it is simply preferable to the feel of a particular bare hand.

The challenge can come in finding the appropriate covering for glove love.


1. One of the primary benefits of barehanded penis manipulation is that skin supplies its own natural lubrication, although usually additional lubrication is recommended for a good penis pumping session. Soft, fabric gloves, made of cotton or silk, clearly do not naturally lubricate. They also have the disadvantage of absorbing a great deal of any external lubrication that may be added to them. Still, the soft feel of such gloves for many men makes up for the lack of lubrication.

2. Rubber gloves are a better option for many, especially because they become delightfully slick when lubricant is applied. The feeling a penis gets with a common pair of well-oiled kitchen gloves can send many men into a frenzy of delight. At the same time, some men are turned off by the rubber gloves' utilitarian appearance; this may affect their ultimate enjoyment of the experience.

3. Leather gloves are preferred by many as a good compromise between rubber and cotton or silk ones. One concern here is that the stitching in leather gloves, unless they are very high end, tends to be coarse and can cause discomfort on the penis.

4. Glove love does not have to involve actual gloves. Sometimes a silk scarf or a pair of nylon pantyhose can do the job just as well - and may provide a little welcome hint of exoticism that can be very exciting.

Whatever option one chooses, penis fondling is one of those activities that is so enjoyable that it's very easy to overdo; most men want it to go on and on, and as a result often end up with a happy but sore penis. Fortunately, they can take advantage of a superior penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) to get their rods back in fighting form. The first order of business is to select one with quality moisturizing ingredients; definitely vitamin E should be included, as well as a high end emollient such as shea butter. Men should also choose a cream with a neuroprotective agent, ideally acetyl L carnitine, which can help enhance the sensitivity that aggressive penis use can dim.
