This is sooooooo appropriate. I call my sons and husband monkey butts and they could sure use this stuff.

Ha! That's great. I saw a lady monkey butt powder too. Who knew these things existed?

@mtrlgrl: Yeah, I was surprised by the lady monkey butt too, especially when every one knows ladies don't perspire. They glow.

@lakvinga , perhaps the chafing-sweat is acquired from contact with overly sweaty men? Second-hand sweat?

All my ladies end up with a monkey butt after I'm done with them. This would make a good gift.

Hey it's got calamine!! Powder that butt and run through the poison ivy !

It contains TALC, Be warned. Studies show this may cause cancer and you don't want cancer scare in that part of the body.

Talc / Talcum powder

Many people use talc after bathing or to soothe irritated or inflamed skin. What most people don't know is that there is an inextricable link between tacl and asbestos, which virtually everyone knows causes cancer. In fact, the two are virtually chemically identical.

As a consequence, talc manufacturers have played down the link, whilst doing there best to ensure that their powders contain no asbestos fibres. Unfortunately, this isn't enough.

A 1993 US National Toxicology Program report found that comsetic grade talc, even though it contained no asbestos-like fibres, caused tumours in animals. It would therefore appear that, whether asbestos-like fibres are present or not, cosmetic grade talcum powder is a carcinogen (causes cancer).

I usually use Gold Bond powder, which I like a lot. Can anyone compare this to Gold Bond?

@mrsly69: Buzzkill much? I can't imagine anybody will be buying this on a regular basis. It is, at most, a pretty good gag gift.

vote-for2vote-against

No, it's not generally a gag gift. People like to laugh about it until they actually experience Monkey Butt. If you get it, and are stuck sitting for a long time (long-haul trucker, long distance motorcyclist, etc), it is absolute agony. I've never had it myself, but I do know the misery of facing a 500 mile day on a motorcycle seat that doesn't fit and makes my ass hurt; I can't imagine adding Monkey Butt on top of that and never want to try.

That said, 6 bottles of the stuff is an awful lot, and the talc warnings are well heeded. Best to stick with clean wicking underwear, taking breaks to let things air out, etc.

@speedoo: I haven't used gold bond but I have use this stuff and while the name is funny, it is very good.

mrsly69: Thank you for copying everything but the relevant bit from Wikipedia:

"In 1993, a US National Toxicology Program report found that cosmetic grade talc caused tumours in rats (animal testing) forced to inhale talc for 6 hours a day, five days a week over at least 113 weeks."

Somehow I don't think that's going to happen here.

This isnt just a gag gift, I see it sold at all the bike shops around here. Monkey butt is a serious problem in this country! It's an epidemic!

And whoever is talking about cancer obviously hasn't read much about it. asbestos-containing talc (read: not the stuff used in any commercial products) is what may cause cancer, however if we're just talking about talc (the stuff that is used in commercial products), it has no link to cancer that has been even remotely proven or seriously suggested. This is pretty standard stuff guys, most of you rub it on your babies' bottoms (under a different brand of course).

@speedoo: Hubs used to use Gold Bond. I switched him over to a Target store brand. It's less than half the price of the Gold Bond powder for the exact same size and ingredients. Of course, I had to hunt all over the danged store to find which aisle they kept it. He's says it works as well as the GB.

As far as cancer studies go, the odds are the subjects being tested have been exposed to insane amount of the substance being investigated, and subjected to it in unusual ways. I'd double check on the methodology of the study before being scared away from a product.

vote-for1vote-against

Regarding the talc controversy, I believe some powder brands have switched to using cornstarch in place of talc. But I don't feel that the amount of this product used would cause any problems.

vote-for1vote-against

Also regarding the talc controversy. Is it a carcinogen when inhaled (like asbestos)? You can eat asbestos with no ill effects, you just can't breathe it in is what I was told.

This deal is a bit wonky. It is cheaper to buy these bottles individually from amazon than it is to buy this 6 pack. Individual bottles - 4 bucks. 6 pack - 28 bucks.

I want some butt powder to repel monkeys, but this seems to be powder to repel monkey-butt.

If the possibility of cancer is the price I pay for a clean and dry butt area, count me in. Same goes for Cell phones...minus the butt part...plus the cancer part.

@thorizan: When you factor in the shipping on your link, it comes to $28.24, so yeah, you will save yourself under a dollar. BUT that's not including the tax you'll pay if Ace does business in your state like they do in mine.

I also use this regularly.. even for a short 30 to 60 minute motorcycle ride in the hot hot heat (especially wearing riding pants), quickly causes a build up of heat in the seat. This stuff seems to help, at least a bit. Could be placebo effect, who knows.. but it definitely helps keep things dryer, and reduce the chaffing.

@speedoo:
Compared to Gold Bond.. it's pretty much the same. I wouldn't say either works much better than the other. I give Monkey Butt extra points based on the name though. ;)

The whole thing with carcinogens is that one minute something is bad for you and dangerous, another minute it is good for you. It's hard to keep up with it, and confusing. A person would have to live in a plastic bubble all his life to avoid everything.

vote-for1vote-against

@mtrlgrl: a plastic bubble that would likely contain carcinogens o_o

I never thought of motorcycle riding or semi-truck driving as being a cause of monkey butt. We always used the term in the military to describe the situation that occurs when you're in the field for a week or two at a time, have no way to bathe, and have limited ability to wipe thoroughly. I believe that situation will probably cause cancer back there faster than talc.

Okay - is this Anti-Monkey ........butt powder? or Anti......Monkey-butt powder? It's makes a difference ya know.
