Impotence or ED from biking

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bikes: Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

I'm reporting back to say that, after multiple tests, all is well.

Hmm -- I like that first link. I need another experiment.

Indeed another sad CF bike story.
Man shoots a months pay for the zoot,high teck,cycle.
No cash left for babes,entertainment,nudie bar.
Seeks gratification from the only true love he has
due to his present economics.

cash flow worries,
ugly spouse syndrome.
Yuck what a pathetic comment. Immature AF. That “fat chick” dodged a bullet and a small D*ck I guess. 🤔 actually dumbass cycling CAN cause ED bc the saddle puts pressure on the pudendal nerve but you wouldn’t know that bc u don’t have a brain hmmm.

I posted this in Road Cycling because we're the ones who might spend hours on our bike without getting out of the saddle. I'm hoping to just put all these myths to rest so people can stop asking about it, but we'll see what happens.
you should be asking a medical professional not a bunch of horny guys who want to pound their chest. The answer is, yes it can cause ED bc the seat puts constant pressure on the perineum—the area between the genitals and butt hole. This pressure can harm nerves and temporarily slow blood flow, so ED

I din't read every post, but if you have erectile dysfunction, how would you know that it was caused by time in the saddle and not something else? Lots of non-cyclists get ED.

I always get amused at people building up their confidence to post with comments to long dead threads. This one over 16 yeas old. And gets snotty with a member that hasn't been around for about 10 years.
