Vibrating bike seats!? Bicycling not on the list of banned pornographic pastimes

Apparently, in Britain, there is a sex store that sells a vibrating bicycle seat because, that is the only way anyone will ever, ever get pleasure from sitting on a bicycle seat. Bicycle seats suck. Bad choice of words, but now they massage the nether regions and provide bliss. The world teeters on the edge of an ironic abyss.

For 28 British Pounds, the equivalent of about $50, you can get a vibrating bicycle seat cover from If you are not in the UK, you may want to think about your import strategy because no one is going to think of this as a hemarrhoid remedy. 

According to, a site for the ladies:

We know it’s a bit silly, but it will definitely make that last mile more exciting. Plus, it’s an easy way to indulge your kinky sex outdoors fantasy without being arrested for public indecency. Huzzaah!

We don’t understand women at all. We really don’t.

According to the more mainstream, but kind of sensationalist, Daily Mail, it is all because of the convergence of bondage fiction, cycling and demand for “exercise related adult toys:”

Claire Bowden of SexShop365, the store behind  the Happy Ride, says the demand for exercise related adult toys such as kegel balls has also grown dramatically over recent months – put down in large part to the Fifty Shades phenomenon.

And a growing passion for cycling – 10 per cent of us now cycle to work – pointed at the creation of a vibrating bicycle seat being a natural progression.

‘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.

‘It was only a matter of time before the two were combined to make your daily cycle even more pleasurable.‘

Exercise related adult toys….. I bet you didn’t know there was enough a market for that sort of stuff.
