THE SENSUAL CYCLIST

  • In a study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, 78 sedentary men whose average age was 48 were asked to participate in a moderate aerobic exercise program consisting mainly of cycling and jogging for 3–4 days a week for nine months. Participating men reported that their frequency of intercourse went up by 30 percent, and they also experienced increases in sexual arousal, activity, function, and satisfaction.
  • At the University of Texas, Austin, another study found that a vigorous exercise like cycling helped increase sexual arousal in women, both subjectively and objectively. Subjectively, the women reporting being more turned on by a sexy movie after a brief ride than without the ride. Objectively, the study measured blood blow to the female genitals after cycling, and found it significantly increased.
  • Still another study conducted in Germany showed that cycling increases the body’s production of endorphins — sending them to the same part of the brain that lights up when we fall in love.
