Dick hurts after Physical exercises.

I get a burning sensation similar to that you feel in your legs after sitting too long in a bad position and you get a numbing leg. This happens after a real bike ride and it also happened when I took the bicycle classes at the gym.

Generic bike seats aren't designed for men.

You have to take steps to protect your junk.

I use a stretchy seat-pad on top of a grooved gel seat/saddle.

I mean....if the seat is TERRIBLE then I guess so...but I have no idea how people think sitting on a bike is essentially sitting on your junk. Maybe its because I don't wear boxers.

actually - go to a bike shop for help. Everyone is different with this sort of thing. Everyone's butt is a bit different and everyone rides a bit different. For me, I need a firm seat of the proper width.

Nope.

But that doesn't mean there isn't a small industry working to solve it.

I "upgraded" my road bike seat twice in a year as an attempt to alleviate pinched nerves and reduced blood flow. I ended up making it part of my cycling routine that I would spend one minute out of every five completely suspended by the pedals and off the seat. That, and making sure the nose of the seat pointed down an extra 5° to 7°, pretty much fixed the problem.

It’s either a pinched nerve or your prostate being crushed. I gave up traditional bikes for a recumbent for the prostate reason. I’m much better, now.

Just a guess, but your seat may put too much pressure on the perineum. Try changing seats to something that is wider and hollowed out in the middle so that the pressure is on your butt cheeks. In other words, having all your weight right down the middle on a skinny seat is bad.

This is a well known and much researched condition resulting in too much pressure on the perineum as discussed above. The solution is to find the right seat. I had big problems with numbness and pain until I started using seats with major cutouts in the middle. The crap seats that come with cheap bikes and even some expensive bikes are the cause. Finding a bike seat that works for you on long rides requires significant effort. Many decent local bike shops will allow you to take home seats to try out and then exchange until you find the one that works for you. If they won't do that, find another bike shop.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I ride quite a bit and used to a always just default to whatever came on my bikes (all high end stuff) but would still occasionally run into issues on longer rides.

A few years ago I finally made the leap into a properly fitted saddle from a highly regarded ergonomics based company and it has been fantastic. I use them on all my bikes. The one that worked for me was an SQlab Ergowave 611 Active in 15cm width. Not cheap at $150 or so but well worth it for me.

Lots of good info about sit bones and bike seat ergonomics on their site:

Another highly regarded saddle company is Ergon. Their site also has a lot of good info.

I had that issue as well when I was riding regularly. Plus, it also caused ED, creating relationship issues.

Yeah, those hard leather Brooks saddles were great in the teen years when nothing could affect the flow of testosterone..... Mine is a nice gel padded saddle now. Note that wearing a proper positioning strappy type undergarment may keep your gentleman sausage from being compressed.

Definitely wears shorts made for bicycling. And make sure you don't wear any underwear with the shorts. The shorts have padding inside them, and are stitched in such a way as to prevent chafing. You don't necessarily need to wear tight spandex, most roadies do, as it cuts down on wind resistance, but mountain bikers have padded shorts that look like regular guy shorts or swim trunks.

Yes they are! First hit on google: Numbness in the genital area was reported by 61% of the cyclists...

I'd say adjusting the seat correctly, proper cycling attire, and a different seat. And still on long rides, everyone I know has that problem to some degree. Some have damaged themselves irreparably, despite their best efforts.

You can also get padded boxer briefs specifically for cycling, if you're not the type to do a lot of Spandex outside the home.... ROTFL

The opposite is true. Gel-padded saddles are generally a very poor choice because they compress the entire seat area and are underlain by hard plastic bases, resulting in numbness and pain after an hour or more in the saddle. By contrast, Brooks and other suspended leather saddles are generally much better because they support you primarily at the sitz bones and don't put pressure on nerves. On my long distance bikes I use Brooks saddles with cutouts in the middle. If you check out the bikes of the vast numbers of bike tourists rolling up and down the Pacific Coast Highway you will see that most of them vote with their butts for Brooks B-17s.
