Eek! Bicycle riding ladies, the Journal of Sexual Medicine has published a study about the bad things a bicycle can do to a vagina. According to researchers at Yale, competitive female cyclists who had their handle bars lower than their bike seat experienced “significantly higher vibratory thresholds in the anterior vagina, compared with riders whose handlebars were level with the bike saddle.” Translation: they lost sensation in parts of their vaginas!

A couple of years ago, I had the chance to go to Amsterdam for a few days. My favorite part? No, not the weed, you stoners! It was the bikes! Most people get around on easygoing cruisers, with high handle bars that make it easy to see where you’re going as you’re biking around town.
