Sunbeds - Commando or cover them with a sock?

Don't be daft.

Skin cancer is the concern with sunbed usage.

Very true but the skin on the scrotum is more sensitive and less likely too have been exposed to the sun.

I,m not saying covering it will or won't stop cancer just saying I do it.

And yes I know I,m more likely to get skin cancer going on the beds anyway.

My missus is blonde and was a sun worshipper, baby oil and low factor straight away, always dark skinned, 2 years ago she got skin cancer on her back and have to have it removed, she has also been told its highly likely she will get it again......no more sunbeds and factor 50 on holiday plus covered up/in the shade. 

False tan however, now that's a whole other story with her lol.

In case this isn't obvious, skin cancer on the scrotum is not the same as testicular cancer. Very different things.

You might have a point about less typically exposed skin being more likely to get skin cancer though, I've never thought about it before. I'm very pale skinned, burn fairly easily, and consequently have never used a sun bed.
