The Link between Motorcycles and Erectile Dysfunction

Take heed, men who have the passion of riding on two wheels. There might be a possibility that motorcycle riding can lead to erectile dysfunction which may require treatment with meds like Levitra or the other erectile dysfunction drugs soon.

The International Journal of Impotence Research has published a study that highlights the link between the increasing rate of erectile dysfunction and motorbike riding men. Research shows that penis nerves are in danger of being damaged by the vibrations produced by motorcycle engines (mostly coming from under the seat). Uncomfortable motorcycle seats can also restrict the flow of blood through the arteries of the penis which discourages erection.

Motorcycle riding does not only threaten penile erection but also the health of male prostate and bladder. The same research also found out that men who operate forklift truck and other heavy machinery (which noticeably have strong engine vibrations) are also susceptible to erectile dysfunction.

Doctors mostly provide riders with samples of erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, erectile dysfunction is no longer considered a frustrating condition as it once was. What these medications do is help men suffering from erectile dysfunction by increasing the flow of blood to his penis thus encouraging an erection that can last up to the completion of the sexual act.

Erectile dysfunction drugs are however not magic pills because you still need to be sexually aroused before you can experience an erection. The same erection is also expected to go away after the completion of the sexual act. If not then that would be another problem.

But why wait for erectile dysfunction to strike you when you can prevent it by installing comfortable seats on your motorcycles? If riding motorbikes is your pleasure you can at least limit the damage that the engine vibrations can cause by making sure you have comfortable seats which puts pressure not on your perineum area but on your buttocks. A simple cushion such as an airhawk can help as well.

Quality motorcycle seats can be an additional expense, but compare this to the possibility of developing erectile dysfunction and you would agree that this is the most cost effective way of managing your health and your sexual life.
