The sacrifice of cycling.

Women who bicycle regularly may have a harder time getting off.
While past studies have shown a correlation between erectile disfunction and genital numbness in men, a new study shows that it’s common for women cyclists to have a decrease in genital sensation.
“However, there were no negative effects on sexual function and quality of life in our young, healthy pre-menopausal study participants,” said lead author Marsha K. Guess, M.D., assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale.
Okay, but that doesn’t change the future outcome. With about 13 million women in the U.S. who bicycle on a regular basis, I would think (or hope) something could be invented to avoid this. Some sort of crotch cup?
