It seems like just yesterday we were talking about women orgasming all over the gym. But now, here's the bad news.

I know it seems like just yesterday we were talking about women orgasming all over the gym, which might have made you take a spin class or pull out the ol' 10-speed. But it might have been good to know this first: while going to the gym might be good (fun) for your vagina, riding a bike might be bad.
Researchers are piggybacking off a 2006 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that found that "female cyclists had less genital sensation compared with a control group of female runners. As a result, some scientists believe that female cyclists probably are at similar risk for sexual problems as male riders." The 2012 studyfocuses on whether there are specific factors that influence soreness and numbness among female riders. (Thanks for racing to that one, researchers. We've been waiting. Pins and needles.)
