bicycle noseless saddles

the perineal nerveWhen you sit on a traditional bike saddle, you put an enormous amount of pressure on your perineum. That the place from your "black hole" to your "family jewels sack", which is exactly where pressure isn't supposed to go. As The New York Times reports:

"There's as much penis inside the body as outside," [reproductive physiologist Dr. Steven Schrader] told me. "When you sit on a regular bike saddle, you're sitting on your pen1s." More precisely, according to Dr. Schrader's measurements, you are putting 25 to 40 percent of your body's weight on the nerves and blood vessels near the surface of the perineum. "That part of the body was never meant to bear pressure," Dr. Schrader said. "Within a few minutes the blood oxygen levels go down by 80 percent."

This means prolonged bicycling in the saddle, can cause genital problems. From full on erectile dysfunction, to erections that won't last as long, to numbness in the nethers (which affects both men and women). And this isn't just limp speculation, it's backed up by hard science. The proof, as the Times reports, is in a couple of horrifying-sounding devices. well that sucks. split seats will save your pen1s There is a suggested solution which is using "split saddles" or "noseless saddles" instead of standard seats. these "Noseless" saddles are basically two separate saddles next to each other, with one smaller "saddle" per buttock. Such saddles achieve a relief of pressure from the perineum by using a different design. So here are a few seats that will make your balls happy:
