Many a spinal cord injured people not only enjoy sex, but also experience orgasm. Although the orgasm may be and feel different from those they had before injury, but they are not necessarily less satisfying or intense. Some people say that other parts of their bodies appear to compensate with greater sensitivity for the lack of feeling in their paralyzed parts. It has been found that women with SCI have an alternative sensory path for orgasms coming through the vagus nerve, the I0th cranial nerve and which should not be affected by SCI. It is also likely that hormones released during intercourse play a major role in orgasm.
