    ....Its really friction most times..

    And you can do it in a private stall.. you'd be surprised what some mountain bikers use!

    Solutions are:

    - install a saddle with gel inserts
    - chamois riding shorts
    - use any of a number of crotch creams designed for bicyclists
    - do more training rides to toughen-up your ass

    You can find more brands online, and check your local bike shops.

    And a bike butt can be very tight and attractive in a man. The part you toughen is only the perineum, where you sit on the saddle. Your gluteous maximus (glutes) can become quite attractive through biking.

    Depends on where your butt's positioned on the saddle... I find I get less friction sitting closer to the front (narrow end) of the seat, rather than in the back.

    do you use a product like body glide, to minimize chafing? is the padding in your shorts too thick? have you considered a more comfortable saddle? are you holding your ass on the saddle properly, or just plopping it down and pedaling?

    If you didn't have chamois bike shorts before you'll see a big improvement. Along with using the proper cream. Vasoline is better than nothing, but there are better choices.

    Also make sure your saddle is the correct type, and adjusted properly. For a road bike, which your pic seems to show, you want a fairly narrow saddle. But yours may be tilted up a little high in front, if that's a current pic, and given that camera angles can be misleading. That saddle adjustment might me putting too much pressure on the front of your perineum, right behind your balls.

    Normally start with the saddle adjusted to be parallel with the ground, with no tilt. Riders have their own preference, but use that as a starting point. Also consider the fore and aft adjustment. A saddle too far to the rear can cause you to be perching on the narrow front part. Adjusted too far to the front can put you on the widest back part, also causing discomfort.

    Seat post height can also affect your ergonomic relationship with the saddle. A bike shop can help you determine that proper height. And sell you the metric Allen wrenches to experiment with those adjustments for yourself, if you don't already own them.
