I had enough, wanting to end this suffering I did what any other 'Murican would of done when dealing with a problem. No, not hire a lawyer and sue. I Googled It.
Friction, the culprit in this situation, occurs when your tailbone or upper booty rubs and slides along the floor. A few hundred sit-ups or being the proud owner of a J Lo booty can leave you with chafing or as I like to call it "Bum Burn".

While your raspberry bum is healing you can use planks, leg raises, varieties of crunches or conditioning drills like having a partner punch/knee you repeatedly on the stomach.
Guantanamo Bay Get Up
Just as if you dropped the soap in prison, clench your butt cheeks while sitting up. This can help minimize the friction by preventing you from sliding around as you're doing your sit-ups.
Grease the Groove Method
Shorten the reps but increase the frequency (sets) throughout your day. I love using Grease the Groove method for weighted exercise or pushups and pull-ups, but I'm not a fan for using this method for sit ups. However, it did helped my raspberry to heal without sacrificing work volume.
Grease the Crack (Moisturize)
Keeping your Raspberry damp can speed up the healing process. Vaseline is the cheapest that comes to mind but any other moisturizers (preferably without alcohol) can do the same thing.
"I don't count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. That is when I start counting, because then it really counts. That's what makes you a champion."-
You can roll up a towel or a t-shirt of your liking or hating. Place it right on or above your tail bone. Depending on specific location, you might have to make adjustments to find the proper spot that'll alleviate the friction.
