Many men who have had surgery for prostate cancer are able to experience orgasm without erection (men with successful nerve-sparing prostate surgery will most likely continue to have erections). Why is the penis so sensitive after an orgasm? Some men experience greatly increased sensitivity (hypersensitivity), and even pain, of the penis after orgasm. The physiological basis for this hypersensitivity is not known.

The physiological basis for this hypersensitivity is not known. During penetrative sex, the friction of the skin of the penis against the walls of the vagina (or other surface) could make the skin sensitive. There is some evidence that release of the hormone prolactin into the bloodstream at orgasm may increase the sensitivity of the penis, as well as the nipples. There is no consensus among researchers as to whether circumcision at infancy affects the sensitivity of the penis. Abnormally low penile sensitivity, as a result of trauma to the genital region, injury to the penile sensory (pudendal) nerves, or diabetes, can result in erectile dysfunction.

Typically, if a penis is of average length (four to six inches when erect) and each partner is familiar with the pleasurable areas of the other’s body, the size of the penis will probably matter less than how it is used. When a penis is larger or smaller than average, extra effort may be required with some partners to increase contact or avoid uncomfortable pressure. Are orgasms affected by the menstrual cycle? Yes, although there is considerable variation among women. Some women enjoy bodily intimacy with their partner during their menstrual period, whereas others prefer not to be physically intimate during that time.
