Question: Orgasm Numbness in Extremities

 Anaximander - Mon Oct 26, 2009 1:48 pm

Hello. I am a male, but I am concerned about my partner. We have been sexually active for a year but specifically only oral and manual stimulation (No coitus). During oral sex with her, she presumably comes to orgasm based on her emotions/sound/etc. and vaginal contractions (she isn't sure what an orgasm is) and after long periods of oral and manual stimulation, she is very tired and satisfied but her fingers and hands are tingling and numb. I believe it is because she is too tense and nervous, but I was wondering if there were any other explanations? I am only interested in her well-being and health, and any advice or insight would be very appreciated. Thank you so much!

User avatar Hi Anaximander,
Considering the fact that tingling and numbness may result as a result of "prolonged" pressure on nerves (neurapraxia) - for example the radial nerve palsy ("Saturday night palsy"), there are a number of variables one may need to consider for the symptoms such as those you have described.........

- Body weight of each partrner
- Body Position of the partners
- duration
- hyperventilation
- alcohol or other substances
- prolonged clenching of fists
- tight, restrictive clothing
- generalised tonic muscle spasm...just to name a few.

Good day!
