The bicycle would undermine women’s sexual health

girl-on-bicycleJuly 23, New Delhi: The bicycle would reduce the sensitivity of women, especially when the seat is higher than the handlebars.

we already knew that regular cycling can reduce sexual performance of men. But it seems that the bike is not without risks for the female libido. This sport could even significantly reduce their sensitivity.

A recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (entitled The Bar Sinister: Does handlebar level damage the pelvic floor in female cyclists ?) Was conducted at Yale University in the USA by a dozen researchers and physicians specializing in obstetrics, urogynecology and reconstructive surgery of the pelvic region. They compared scientifically genital sensation in 48 regular practitioners of the bike, with 22 of those joggers.

The test subjects used their own bicycles, which were installed on a test bench. The team interviewed a sample of women who reported regularly travel by bike 10 miles a week, rain or shine.

Researchers found among cyclists “a correlation between increased pressure on the perineum and lower feelings of the left front portion of the vagina”, or even numbness of the lips, when the handlebars of the bicycle was located below the saddle . The problem is exacerbated when cyclists take an aerodynamic racing position, leaning forward with your back flat.

Fortunately, there is a solution: go for orthopedic stool called “no nose” – that is to say, no tip at the front – that eliminate pressure on the perineum!
