Genital injuries send thousands to emergency care each year:
'The types of injuries [also] differed by age and sex. Men were injured the most, accounting for about two thirds of the emergency room visits.
Sporting items were the most common cause of injuries among people of all ages. These included bicycles as well as basketball, soccer, football and baseball equipment.
Breyer said one example of damage from a sporting item is people falling forward on their bicycles and landing on the center bar. Padding or cushioning could help avoid injuries.'
