Damn... I was hoping that bicyclists were self-correcting problem.

That's a relief, but does anyone have a fix for getting numb junk while cycling? Is there a special anti-numb junk seat available?

Look for a seat with a channel through the center.  Also replace the seat at least every two years.  They break down and that also leads to numb dick.

One with a gap in the middle so that blood flow isn't restricted along the taint.  Also, like someone else mentioned, proper bike fitting.

I'd post a picture of a dildo on a bicycle seat peg, but I'm pretty sure that would get me a time out. But yeah, I would imagine that scenario would basically stop men from forming baby.

I've been goaded into joining a friend twice now in the recent workout phenomenon known simply as Soul Cycle. That, my friends, is essentially the gradual induction of infertility via blunt force trauma.

It's all about the fit... of the seat to your bone (and soft tissue) structure.  Gotta try several seats till you find one that supports you by your bones, and not by your soft parts.  A couple of manufacturers -- WTB comes to mind -- have loaner seats at retail stores specifically to encourage this.

Look around till you find a brick-n-mortar that'll let you try several seats... a seat is one of the worst things to buy mail-order.  And you definitely don't want to keep getting numb, that's gonna cause a problem sooner or later.

I cycle 8 hours or so a week but the joke's on.... Someone else! I'll die of unrelated cancer due to my horrible diet and substance abuse issues LONG before my prostate gives out.

So, it's actually not a simple question to answer.
First off, the numbness is caused by pinching of the peroneal nerve, which can actually become damaged over enough time in the saddle with numbness. (That nerve's damage is what causes impotence in cyclists).
If you have a very soft saddle, or like one of those gel seat covers, you are likely riding for too long a time in a saddle that is too soft and are sinking into the saddle. If that's the case, then a harder saddle will fix the problem.

If you already have a properly hard saddle, the next place to look is that the saddle is adjusted properly. It should be parallel with the ground.

If neither of these are the issue then a saddle with a cut-out in it (as mentioned above) is the solution. I'd look at Specialized's Body Geometry saddle. They come in varying widths to accommodate different people's sit bone widths.
Hit up a ship and they can tell you which width is right for you.

Except those guys change into decent pants when they are done with their workout. Bikers tend to wear their biker shorts during their daily routine.

None that I know do. After a few hours of riding the chamois become uncomfortable, all the cyclists I know get out of them as soon as the ride is over. At least everyone on my team did, all my friends too.

By the way, stay right the hell away from Chain Reaction, those guys are farking thieves. You should go to GoRide Bikes down on El Camino Real, Below Woodside and just past the Taco Bell, They are a GREAT Shop, good guys and knowledgeable.

I'm talking about the 60+ men that stroll around the grocery store in their little bike shorts and tap shoes. If you are an old man in a damn grocery store, you don't pretend it's Tour de France, and that everybody appreciates seeing shriveled old man ass.

Numbness from cycling is a result of several factors...usually a seat that doesn't properly support the sit bones, bad bike fit and the riding sitting in the same position for too long.  Get a decent bike fit, and try a variety of different saddles until you find the right one and remember to move your hand/body position around every few minutes.

I've found a good rule of thumb is 20-30sec out of the saddle every fifteen min or so. About the same schedule as eating on long rides.
