Question
I used shampoo/conditioner 2 in 1 once to masturbate.  It burns a little now.  Will the penile skin regenerate on its own after using this kind of an abrasive product?

Answer
Conditioner would not bother it at all.  If you use shampoo, make sure to rinse it off thoroughly.  If it doesn't hurt in the next 24 hours, you are probably OK.  Most males prefer to use a lube made especially for sex.  See here for more information: http://www.healthystrokes.com/lube.html.
