Do Cyclists Really Have Better Sex?

Do Cyclists Really Have Better Sex?

The answer to this question is yes, cycling really can make your sex life better! Let’s examine some of cycling’s sex benefits:

Fitness & Confidence

Cycling, as a form of athleticism and exercise, builds your body. Not only do you look physically fit, but you also feel fit. Achieving a good and healthy body type can help boost your confidence.

Confidence will not only make you perform better in the bedroom, but it will also make you more attractive to others. Plus, who doesn’t love a hot bod?


Cycling, as an endurance sport, builds stamina. How long can you ride? Cycling can help you train to ride longer, better, and faster, without giving in.

Cycling works on your cardiovascular system, so training that system will allow you to work harder for longer periods of time.


Most exercises, and cycling, in particular, release endorphins. Endorphins are hormones that are released from the pituitary gland into the body. These hormones give the body and brain a natural high, leading to a feeling of physical and mental satisfaction.

Because of their euphoric nature, Endorphins can create and heighten sexual arousal. Endorphins are also released during sex, so no wonder why there’s a parallel here.

Pump It

Cycling increases blood flow, which is scientifically proven to be good for your sex life. Increased blood flow to the body will give you more physical energy and longer lasting power in the bedroom.

Cycling particularly works on the legs, glutes, and lower back muscles. These muscles are vital to great sex performance, which is one of the reasons why cycling is beneficial to your sex life. The more developed these muscles are, the longer you will be able to use them without growing fatigued.

Sex in itself is a physical workout that utilizes many of our body's systems and muscles, so think of it like this, cycling prepares all parts of your body to be worked out during sex. The more fit you are initially, the better experience you will most likely have because you can work harder in the bedroom.

Studies Show…

Cycle To Work Day conducted a study by reviewing how some commuters were affected by their cycling. They discovered that 66 percent of people said their relationships improved after cycling and 39 percent credited cycling for giving them extra energy during sex and in the bedroom.

Arkansas University conducted a study among 400 men and women. They discovered that physically fit men and women found themselves to be more sexually desirable in comparison to the unfit men and women who participated.

80 percent of men who exercised two to three days a week voted themselves to be much more sexually desirable than average.
