The human privates are delicate, and for this, if one isn’t careful in the way they treat them, complications can arise. Below is a list of some of the things you should not do to your privates.

Apart from the fact that most piercing instruments can expose you to infections if not properly sterilized, there’s also issue of trauma and injuries in the privates which can arise as a result of piercing.
2. Avoid tight underwear
Tight underwear expose you to excessive sweating which can cause bacterial infection if not checked, and according to research, tight underwear also have the capacity to limit blood flow to your genitals, thereby reducing sperm production, and consequently resulting in infertility. This is especially true for men.
3. Don’t fail to wash yourself after sex

4. Do not over-wash
While it’s good to wash and keep it clean down there, be careful not to over-wash it, as it can also create problems for you. The skin is delicate, you can cause yourself injuries, and be exposed to infections if you wash more than necessary.
5. Do not steam

6. Don’t self-medicate

Do not go out there, getting yourself medication. There are too many drugs out there, and you can’t be sure how you’d react to them. Some have harsh compositions, so it’s good to thread carefully.
7. Do not use enlargement drugs
Size isn’t a problem, it’s about how you use it, not what you’re packing. Do not even contemplate using an enlargement drug, unless prescribed by a good doctor, as most drugs have harmful side effects.
