If you’re sweating your balls off at night in bed, I know it’s not a great feeling. Waking up in the morning and realizing you’re drenched in sweat down there is very uncomfortable.

Fortunately, there are several tips you can try to keep your balls cool at night and prevent those morning situations where you wake up drenched in ball sweat.

Let’s discuss these five tips one by one as we go through the article.

How to Keep Your Balls Cool at Night

Shower before bed

A good tip to help keep your balls cool at night is to shower before bed. This will cool down your body temperature, which includes your balls so this should help you sweat less down there.

Other than that, showering before bed also has other benefits. It makes you feel clean, refreshed and helps condition your mind and body to be ready for bed.

Just remember not to go to extremes when it comes to the temperature of your showers. Don’t go too cold or too hot. Experts recommend that a lukewarm shower 60 to 90 minutes before bed is best.

Use an ice pack

If you’re sweating your balls off at night in bed, take an ice pack, wrap it in a towel, and put it under your legs. By nature, an ice pack is really cold and if applied near the area of your balls, it will help keep your balls cool at night.

I know what you’re thinking. An ice pack? Sure, it might help your balls sweat less, but wouldn’t that get you drenched in water instead?

The answer is no. First of all, ice packs don’t use actual ice. It’s basically just a plastic bag filled with water, refrigerant gel, or liquid and placed in the freezer before use. Second, if you wrap the ice pack in a towel, then you won’t feel the wetness anymore.

This is the kind of ice pack I’m talking about:

This tip may seem weird at first, but I encourage you to try it. After all, there’s nothing to lose. If it doesn’t work for you, then try the other methods discussed here. But if it does, then you’ve got yourself a solution to keeping your balls cool at night.

Wear loose fitting underwear (or go commando)

Many people don’t know that changing the types of clothes and underwear you wear every day can have a significant effect on how much moisture your balls produce.

Wearing the right type of underwear can help to keep your balls cool and dry at night.

  • Consider wearing breathable ones; something that is less restrictive: boxers are a good option, as well as boxer shorts.
  • Natural fabrics like cotton allow your skin to breathe and may be an excellent fabric choice. Synthetic fabrics, on the other hand, such as nylon and polyester, are particularly non-breathable and may cause your balls to sweat more. You should avoid buying underwear made with these types of fabric.

Alternatively, you could also just go full commando so your balls can completely breathe freely. This is more of an extreme option, however, and not everyone might be comfortable doing so. But if you are, then going commando can definitely be an effective method to keep your balls cool at night.

Put some body powder on your balls

Body powders are very effective in mitigating and preventing sweat by absorbing excess moisture, bad body odors, as well as skin chafing and irritation. If you don’t know what this is, just think of baby powder, but specifically made for adults.

This is commonly used by guys who work in industries that require a lot of manual labor and standing under the sun, such as in construction.

However, this can easily be applied to your balls at night to keep them cool and dry while you go to sleep. Ideally, you want to purchase body powders that have that cooling sensation on your balls that basically feels like an A/C down there!

I personally love the Chassis Premium Body Powder, which is talc-free and has a very light scent (mix of Old Spice + pumpkin). One of the cool things about this product is that the aloe and other plant extracts give a soothing feeling after applying the powder. Feels cool and refreshing to the touch that will help keep your balls cool at night.

It also has a pretty useful applicator nozzle, which makes it easy and simple to use. This is definitely worth a try if you do decide to try applying body powder to your balls.

Trim your ball hair

The last tip I can give you to keep your balls cool at night is to try trimming your hair down there. Hair acts as a natural insulator that does a good job of keeping the heat in your body.

If you’ve ever had long hair on your head before, then you know that cool and refreshing feeling you get after finally getting that much-needed haircut.

The same thing happens with your balls. If you’re not already manscaping down there, it’s worth considering to do so to keep your balls cooler down there, while also improving your hygiene at the same time. It’s a win-win.

If you decide to try trimming out, make sure you’re using the right tools as the balls are a very sensitive area. I would recommend getting a body trimmer, particularly the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7000.

This is the one I use for trimming my balls. I can pretty much recklessly trim away at my sensitive areas without a scratch on me. It charges fast, is lightweight, and feels well-built.

  1. My balls still smell like vinegar… but only sarsons can help it now *** won’t lick them.

  2. Hi, I tried the body powder idea.
    However…. I couldn’t help but get strangely aroused during the ordeal. Is there someway that this can be helped, as i am very sexually repressed and don’t wanna have to pray anymore than i already do?
    Many thanks,
