New Bike Seat Is Designed to Give Women Orgasms
Bikers everywhere can now make their morning commute a little more stimulating. A sex toy company based in the U.K. has released a genius innovation called the “Happy Ride.” 'What's a Happy Ride?', you ask, naively.
Why it's a vibrating bike seat cover, duh.
The website SexShop365 promises that the remote-controlled vibrating seat cover can help you "take your cycling to greater pleasurable heights” for only £28.00 ($43).

Needless to say, it's probably best for beginning users to use the product with caution — at least until one masters the art of experiencing such "pleasurable heights" without swerving into a parked car or pedestrian.
“Thanks to the UK’s cycling boom and the building obsession around next year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, both adult toys and cycling are firmly on the public radar," Claire Bowden of SexShop365 said in an interview with UK's the Daily Mail. "It was only a matter of time before the two were combined to make your daily cycle even more pleasurable."
But there may be more dangers to adding extra vibration to your ride besides "pleasurable" distraction. A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that bike seats not only caused vaginal numbness, but also increased the likelihood of damage to the pelvic floor.
Researcher Marsha K. Guess warned that "measurements of perineum saddle pressure also showed significant increases in the riders with low handlebars." So if you care about having sensation down there when you're off-bike, it's probably a good idea to make sure your handlebars are level with or above your seat — and you probably shouldn't have more vibratory pressure on the pelvic region than bumpy roads already give you.
Until then, there's always the backseat of the bus. You know the one, by the engine.
