Physiological Parameters Predictive Of Orgasmic Sensations In Spinal Cord Injured Men

Kathleen Charvier MD

Ejaculation in spinal cord injured (SCI) men is associated with somatic or autonomic sensations that may be transmitted through several spinal and paravertebral pathways. Because ejaculation is associated with a generalized sympathetic activity, it should be increased by sympathetic medication and the resulting autonomic responses should be perceived by most patients despite the lesions. This research was designed to investigate the physiological and orgasmic sensations perceived at ejaculation by tetraplegic and paraplegic men using vibrator stimulation (VS) and midodrine (alpha stimulant) treatment.
