Are your genitals sensitive after an orgasm?

Onanist Onanist
After I have an orgasm the head of my penis is very sensitive, so much so, that if it’s touched, I have to pull away from the stimulation. This sensitivity lasts up to 5 minutes. I once knew a woman whose clitoris was just as sensitive after her orgasm and hated me touching her there for a short period of time.

I’m wondering if genital sensitivity after an orgasm is common.

By using the term genital, I'm referring to the penis head and the clitoris.

Please select an answer from the following list and feel free to discuss your experience. Thanks!!

I'm extremely sensitive afterwards, and so is my partner. We sometimes torture each other by continuing to stimulate each other until we start laughing really hard and force the other person to stop. It does get painful though, I have to wait until the orgasmic feeling has stopped before I can get pleasure from stimulation again.

But sometimes it is so sensitive, I can't.

most of the time I am so sensitive that I have to stop for a while, but occasionally I can keep going.

Only on rare occasions have I not been able to keep going. I can't even think back to when the last time was lol, but I know it has happened

I'm very sensitive and enjoy stimulation, but it can get to the point where I just can't stand it anymore it's so sensitive.

Same here, mostly when the wife performs oral, hand jobs or uses a toy on me.

I like soft stimulation after orgasm. It's usually not until several orgasms that I am so sensitive that I can't stand any stimulation at all.

I get sensitive, but all I usually need is a 15-30 second break. Then I'm ready for #2!
As for hubby, he gets quite sensitive and although he can keep going for me, he definitely needs a break.

I'm insanely sensitive so unless it's after a very mild orgasm, there's no touching for about 3-5 minutes. But for the first 1-2 minutes afterward, anywhere I'm touched almost feels like it's being shocked because even if he touches say my knee or my shoulder, the sensation shoots through me like an electric current. I've gotten used to that now though, and am beginning to find it pleasurable.

I'm not super sensitive but I am if I am using a vibe. If I'm not using a vibe I can continue on stroking my clit but if I use a vibe I have to remove my vibe for a few seconds/minutes.

I'm usually mildly sensitive but it really all depends on how amazing the orgasm was...

I tend to be sensitive after orgasm, and sometimes I enjoy stimulation directly after and sometimes I don't. It depends on my mood, really.

Same here. I am not overly sensitive but sometimes (mostly) I would rather have my 'breather'

I cannot stand a strong rabbit vibrator touching my clit after my orgasm. Anything else is typically fine.

I'm always ultra sensitive, but at that point more stimulation leads to more orgasms for me.

I'm so sensitive. I cringe in pain when I'm touched again or if my partner doesn't immediately stop after I have an orgasm. It effing sucks :/

I get super sensitive after, but have only just discovered (after a decade or so of orgasms) that pushing it that bit further ends in this very long continuous multiple orgasm, its hard to explain, but kind of like when a whole bunch of waves try to crash against the shore at once, quite overwhelming but well worth it

I am sensitive and do enjoy stimulation after an orgasm as it leads to additional orgasms. But I need different stimulation; usually lighter and with a different intensity. During solo play, I will grab a different toy...a dil in place of a vibe and just continue.

I voted for both "very sensitive and don't enjoy" and "mildly sensitive and enjoy". It really depends on the quality of my orgasm.

It's an effort to keep going after I orgasm, but if she hasn't orgasmed yet...

After I orgasm, I'm extremely sensitive. I need at least five minutes for my clit and my vagina to calm down before I can go again.

This really depends on how much stimulation I have gotten, but if it's been a lot of stimulation then it's no fun to play right after!

It has to be gentle afterwards for me or else it really hurts. Luckily some people are very sensitive to that.

My hubby and I are both very sensitive afterward, so we are compatible in that regard.

I voted for not enjoying it but it really depends on the intensity of my orgasm. I am able to have many milder orgasms gradually leading up to more intense orgasms. Mild ones I can keep going easily but if I'm in the throws of an awesome orgasm then I can't tolerate immediately starting again. I tend to need to be held for a good while til all the tremors stop before I can be brought back to enjoyment.

Me too. I do enjoy genital stimulation after an orgasm, but sometimes I can't take it because it is overwhelmingly sensitive. But in those cases I wouldn't say I hate being touched. I just need a break.

I answered for myself - but commenting about my wife. Yesterday she commented on how her orgasms have changed. When she was younger and all we knew about were clitoral orgasms - they were sharp and strong - she would push me away immediately because she was unable to tolerate additional contact.

Now however we enjoy g-spot and a-spot play and her orgasms are longer - maintaining contact extends them. After a brief pause orgasms #2 & #3 are easily achievable. At some point she is sated - but I it's not about her clit being too sensitive.

I voted very sensitive and dont like (more so cant handle) direct stimulation straight after an orgasm. If I wait 30 sec to a minute, Im right.

I'm quite sensitive also. And, for the most part do not enjoy stimulation right after orgasm. I typically need a minute or two.

My boyfriend is the same way. He's *VERY* sensitive after orgasm and sometimes even air brushing the head of his penis is too much for him.
