Illustration for article titled One Cycling Probe The French Wont Touch

If you've got some time, the Journal of Sexual Medicine needs your help. They need a term for the female version of "cycling penis," a condition which occurs when a cyclist spends too much time on a bicycle seat. We bring this to you via Dave Barry's blog, although Dave failed to note several key passages in the article. Such as:

Gynecologists used lightly vibrating probes to stimulate the female genitals and participants measured the sensations they felt.

"Strange as it might sound, it's kind of like a hearing test," he says.

"From what we know now, and this is the first real study that has looked at this, I would recommend a no-nose saddle."

But he warns that seats with a cut-out or scoop in the middle are no substitute.

So get to work! We'd like that new term on our desk by tomorrow morning.
