Compared with swimmers/runners, cyclists have no worse sexual or urinary functions

The Authors explored the relation of cycling to urinary and sexual function in a large multinational sample of men.

As conclusion, Cyclists had no worse sexual or urinary functions than swimmers or runners but cyclists were more prone to urethral stricture. Increased time standing while cycling and a higher handlebar height were associated with lower odds of genital sores and numbness.
