Introduction: The effect of sexual arousal and orgasm on genital sensitivity has received little research attention, and no study has assessed sensation pleasurableness as well as painfulness. Aim: To clarify the relationship between sexual arousal, orgasm, and sensitivity in a healthy female sample. Methods: Twenty-six women privately masturbated to orgasm and almost to orgasm at two separate sessions, during which standardized pressure stimulation was applied to the glans clitoris, vulvar vestibule, and volar forearm at three testing times: i baseline; ii immediately following masturbation; and iii following a subsequent minute rest period. Main outcome measures: Touch thresholds tactile detection sensitivity , sensation pleasurableness ratings pleasurable sensitivity , and pain thresholds pain sensitivity.
