Odd things, daily.
43-year-old Californian man Rafe Biggs, was left with no feeling below the waist when he fell from a roof and broke his neck. With no feeling He believed his days of sexual pleasure were behind him. Not so.
A year after his accident, as his girlfriend was sucking and massaging his thumb, Biggs experienced an orgasm. Biggs said:
“I felt this build-up of energies and felt I was getting closer and closer to orgasm. When I did it, it was amazing. I never thought it would be possible, but massaging and sucking on my thumb feels a lot like my penis used to feel – it’s really hot.”
Biggs now has regular sessions with sex therapist Skye Carl. She explained:
“What Rafe is experiencing is a ‘transfer orgasm’, where another place on the body gives the same sensation. He has significant reduction in pain after a session.”
Biggs now refers to his thumb as a “surrogate penis”.
