The Painful Truths and Stupid Myths!
Orgasms, Are They Still Possible?
Depending on the extent of an injury, both men and women with spinal cord injuries (SCI) can experience orgasms in varying degree. For men, the “orgasm” is primarily an emotional sensation in combination with the physical reaction of extreme muscle relaxation in the pelvic region.
For many women with SCI they can experience orgasms like that prior to their injury, however it may take a bit longer to achieve that state of ecstasy.
What is the “Stuffing” Technique?
Researchers at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center, have stated that paraplegic heterosexual males, can have intercourse with women using a technique referred to as “stuffing.” Stuffing is pretty much what the name implies, with the use of their fingers the male (or female) stuffs his flaccid penis inside his partner’s vagina.
When the women begin to thrust her hips, her vaginal muscles “suck” the flaccid penis inside, which provides a sensation very similar to penetration. In fact, this act can cause a reflex erection to occur there about leading to a more traditional sexual experience.
New Erogenous Zones!
People working with victims of SCI report that less traditional erogenous zones become area of heightened sexual sensitivity, especially around the ears, eyelids, and neck.
Angela Rockwood, from the Sundance Channel documentary series Push Girls, says: “You gotta think of sensation. For quadriplegics, the breast up is very heightened and sensitive, so I like a lot of kissing around the neck.”
Fellow Push Girl Auti Angel backs it up by saying: “It’s like when people become visually impaired and their smells and other senses become heightened. It’s like that with us – we just lost sensation in a different area.”
