In brief: Lubrication

Friction is the resistance that one surface encounters when rubbing over another. The best way to prevent this is to a) stop the rubbing or b) lubricate the surfaces.
The best lubrication is vasaline petroleum jelly or aquaphor. Never use these lubricants during sex with condoms as the petroleum jelly will dissolve the condom.
