**Abstract:** In the present article we provide an example of two closed non-$\sigma$-lower porous sets $A, B \subseteq\er$ such that the product $A\times B$ is lower porous. On the other hand, we prove the following: Let $X$ and $Y$ be topologically complete metric spaces, let $A\subseteq X$ be a non-$\sigma$-lower porous Suslin set and let $B\subseteq Y$ be a non-$\sigma$-porous Suslin set. Then the product $A\times B$ is non-$\sigma$-lower porous. We also provide a brief summary of some basic properties of lower porosity, including a simple characterization of Suslin non-$\sigma$-lower porous sets in topologically complete metric spaces.
