Life Partner Tip 49. You Realize Your Bicycle Is Killing Your Sex Life!
A few years ago, noted urologist Dr. Goldstein frightened many men when he said, "There are only two kinds of male cyclists — those who are impotent and those who will be impotent." You may have heard before about how bicycle riding can be the impact a man's sex life— and a woman's too. Most healthy couples want to have an active sex life for a long time so the question is, do the new ergonomic bike seats— designed to solve temporary penile numbness— really help?
Scientific research at Harvard Medical School suggests that riding a bike for long periods can cause temporary erectile difficulties. The risk appears highest among men who cycle for three or more hours per week. The prevailing theory is that by sitting on a hard bicycle seat the pressure on the perineum increases to the point where it can harm nerves and temporarily impede blood flow. This pressure point can caus tingling or numbness in the men and, eventually, erectile dysfunction. Conventional bicycle seats can cause a dramatic (though temporary) drop in oxygen supply to the penis. In order to avoid this, you always wear padded shorts and stand up often while riding. This takes the pressure from the perineum to the buttocks and allows circulation to return.
Another option is to use a wider, more-padded or gel-filled seat instead a narrow seat, which places more pressure on the perineum. Position your seat to reduce pressure: Make sure it is not so high that your legs are fully extended at the bottom of your pedal stroke, and don't tilt the seat up. As well when riding, change your position and take breaks during long rides, and if you feel tingling or numbness in the penis, stop riding for a few days at least and if it returns change your saddle.
Can the new ergonomic bike seats solve this problem? In the April 9 edition of the Los Angeles Times, Bill Becher reports that, "Over the years, a number of bicycle seat manufacturers have sought to develop saddles that would minimize erectile problems by adding holes and grooves so as to minimize pressure on arteries and nerves. But whether these designs will actually help prevent problems has yet to be studied."
If you have exhausted all other options try what worked for Ed from the Napa Valley. This 52-year-old Northern California cyclist finally went to tried a "noseless" bike saddle. He said it took some getting used to, but: "I now I have a normal relationship with my beautiful wife and ride my bike."
Keep the whole body in good shape and you will be much more likely to attract, connect with and develop a relationship with your perfect life partner!
