I was on a train to school. It was a cool day and the train was crowded. The seat was hard. It was uncomfortable. A girl next to me told me about her problems.
Tip: A man normally feels his penis. But a variety of medical issues can cause penile numbness.
Concern: Numbness is a concern for many men. The pudendal nerve, influenced by sitting position and general health, may cause this.
And: In the book High-Performance Cycling, we find that pressure on the saddle can result in a nerve problem.
Note: The pudendal nerve provides feeling to the penis. If the nerve somehow becomes compressed, the penis will become numb.
Note 2: This is a form of compression neuropathy—a nerve issue. This is a temporary effect.
In cyclists the most common problems of this nature are... in men the pressure on the pudendal nerve from the saddle resulting in a numb penis.High-Performance Cycling
Among men, the second most common complaint was genital [anesthesia], or a numb penis. This is the result of their more slumped posture, with their weight pressing down on the front of the saddle.New Scientist
Pressure: If a man's body weighs less, less pressure will be put on the pudendal nerve.
Result: The no-nose saddles did reduce perineal pressure. And the health of the penises of these police officers also improved.
With few exceptions, bicycle police officers were able to effectively use no-nose saddles in their police work. Use of no-nose saddles reduced most perineal pressure. Penile health improved after 6 [months] using no-nose saddles as measured by biothesiometry and [International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire].Cutting off the nose to save the penis
Name: This is where the name Alcock derives from. It is unclear if this has any relation to slang words.
Alcock's syndrome in bicycle riders has been characterized as a prolonged glans and penile insensitivity, genital numbness and an erectile dysfunction.Site of origin of Alcock's syndrome
And: Tingling may also occur when the man's penis is recovering from its anaesthetized state.
And: In the Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals, I found information about how this occurs.
As he became more comfortable with me, he told me that he had been abused by a coach in a previous school. The abuse consisted of fondling his penis. He was frightened to tell any other teachers or his mother, managing it alone.Handbook of Clinical Sexuality
Tip: Sexual abuse is an important issue that has consequences for everyone involved. The mind and body are connected.
So: Some causes of numb penis may involve not the penis primarily but the mind and a man's mental health.
Note: Compression of the pudendal nerve causes a loss of feeling to the penis in men who ride bikes.
Also: Fascinating illustrations of the internal anatomy of the pelvis and the pudendal nerve are found in the Thieme Atlas of Anatomy.Thieme Atlas of Anatomy
Radiation: Men who have prostate cancer and have had bracytherapy—radiation therapy to the prostate gland—may experience numbness.
Note: The man had penile numbness after his radiation treatment. The problem was resolved to the man's satisfaction.
Info: This is an issue for men with known prostate problems. The man described here was 68 years old and had prostate cancer.
Penile numbness is a rare complication of permanent prostate brachytherapy, and optimal clinical management remains unclear.Subacute penile numbness after brachytherapy
Result: The length increase was not encouraging. An increase of length of 0.3 centimeters only (0.1 inches) was found.
And: The vacuum pump devices caused penile numbness for the test subjects. The numbness resolved on its own.
There was one case of [hematoma] of the penis and one of glans numbness, both resolved spontaneously without any intervention.A vacuum device for penile elongation
Caution: Numbness, like pain, is a sign that something is wrong. Do not ignore it. Rather, try to avoid causing it again.
Lidocaine: A numbing cream, such as one containing lidocaine can be used on the penile shaft and glans.Study: In one study, we find that numbing the penis with this cream is effective for the treatment of premature ejaculation.
Therefore, lidocaine-prilocaine cream 5% is effective in premature ejaculation and 20 min of application time before sexual contact is the optimum period.Optimum usage of prilocaine-lidocaine cream
So: Don't be too creative if you decide to use something to masturbate with. This can come back to haunt you.
Question: Do men with paraplegia have feeling in their penises? Can they become physically aroused?
And: In investigating this question, I found the issue to be complex. Some men do not have feeling in their penises.
Note: This quote comes from the book Moving Violations by John Hockenberry. I recommend reading more about it.
Sex was one detail of life as a paraplegic that was rarely discussed in the hospital. I had no sensation "down there," so what I would do "down there" now, besides jam catheter tubes into my penis, I didn't know.Moving Violations by John Hockenberry
