All males have had chafing balls ... anyone who states differently is either lying or might want to see a doctor.

The constriction is small and painless, but it’s an important part of the process. Constricted tissues reduce the presence of micro wrinkles. This makes the skin a little smoother and dramatically reduces friction. In other words, you won’t chafe so much.
