Reference: Finding it hard to stand, Bangkok Post Mylife Magazine, October 2, 2008

In cases where bicycling has interfered with the erectile function, it has done so by putting excessive and prolonged pressure on the perineum. In men, the perineum is the narrow soft tissue between the scrotum and the anus, and it contains blood vessels and nerves that are necessary for an erection to occur. Contrary to what has been published in MyLife Magazine (Finding it hard to stand, Bangkok Post, October 2, 2008) male cyclists are not forced to sit on their penis, and the higher rate of erectile dysfunction among cyclists is not explained in terms of the effects of of sitting on one's penis.
