That's true. When the mango is half-peeled and I need to turn it over  
to hold the 'naked' side and peel the 'clothed' side, I grab a paper  
towel or cloth that doesn't shed much lint, and use that to hold the  
slippery mango. Then rinse the mango. Added benefit: it decreases  
still further the chance of bruising the delicate meat of the fruit.
