Men and women have described an orgasmic experience from stimulation of the skin region around the level of the spinal cord injury. The injury creates an area of heightened sensitivity.
They've told us if the right person stimulates that skin in the right way, it can produce very pleasurable sensation, including what they describe as orgasms. We studied one such woman who had a spinal cord injury near her shoulders. She stimulated her neck with a vibrator, and she said that elicited an orgasm for her. We observed her blood pressure and heart rate, and they became elevated just as if it were a genital orgasm.
Very odd indeed. I once heard of a girl who could orgasm from the tickling of her elbow. Although I was sceptical, perhaps it's not such a tall story after all. Finally:
In terms of sexuality, the holy grail is: Why does an orgasm feel so damned good?
