Not Enough Sensation: Learn How to Increase Penis Sensitivity

If you were to make a list of sensitive areas of your body, the penis would likely be number one! There are a few good reasons for this. The skin on your penis is not as thick as the skin on your hand. Also, the skin on your penis contains many nerve endings. As a result, the penis is a very sensitive part of the body.

However, over time, some men may begin to lose sensitivity in their penis. Loss of penis sensitivity could explain sexual dysfunction. Difficulty in creating an erection, holding an erection, and even struggling to have an orgasm can all be a result of a loss of sensitivity in the penis. Such events are likely to be catastrophic for the man as well as his partner.

Read this article to learn what penis sensitivity is. In addition, this article will explain the causes as well as the treatments for the medical condition. Anyone who reads this article will have a good understanding to increase penis sensitivity.

Is My Penis Sensitive?

That mass of skin and tissue, dangling between our legs, sure causes us a lot of stress. But it also provides the greatest form of ecstasy imaginable. As men get older, some might lose sensitivity in that area. Remember the first time you masturbated? I bet it was a lot more memorable than the last time you masturbated!

Like all great things in life, the more we use them, the more they wear. Just as one would savior a dessert or glass of wine, sex is the total opposite. If you only masturbated or had sex on rare occasions, then your penis would likely work just fine. But unfortunately, unless you are RoboCop, you are a slave to your emotions, and thus, unable to succumb to your passions when the moment is right.

So, how should you determine your dysfunction is linked to penis sensitivity? The following is a list of characteristics that often accompany decreased sensitivity in the groin area. The more items on the list that a person recognizes, the more likely that they have issues regarding penis sensitivity. If so, please contact your GAINSWave provider.

  • The area, or parts of the area, between testicles and anus, has lost sensation.
  • Feelings similar to pins and needles can be detected in the groin area.
  • Feelings of discomfort could be a cold or burning sensation, in the groin area.
  • The skin in the groin area is an odd color, maybe a purplish color.

Why Is It So Sensitive? Don’t let it Watch Steel Magnolias

Now that one has accepted that they have penis sensitivity, the next question is to ask ‘why?’

While some people struggle to increase sensitivity to the groins, others try various methods to decrease the sensitivity in this area. Still, others may not be able to imagine what a “numb” penis would entail. For this last class of individuals, a numbness may feel like a hand or foot falling asleep. Some report numbness akin to a loss of circulation.

Before we examine the causes of penile sensitivity, an understanding of how sensitivity in this area works is essential.

All penises are very sensitive. The pudendal nerve supplies most of the area around the groin with nerves, and thus sensation to the skin. If one loses sensation in the area, or if they are suffering from erectile dysfunction, the pudendal nerve could be the number one culprit.

What Causes a Loss of Penile Sensation?



If an individual is circumcised, there is no foreskin covering the glans (the head of the penis). The foreskin is a flexible section of skin that covers the head, and the opening, where urine and semen pour out. The glans are exposed to air all day long, depending on how tight one’s underwear is! The glans are also exposed to touch, through masturbation or intercourse, and water. As a result, the glans are much less sensitive on a circumcised than one that is uncircumcised. If someone goes through life with a piece of skin protecting the glans, of course, it will be much more sensitive.

An uncircumcised is only exposed to the environment just a few times, such as bathing, urinating, having sex, and masturbating. Some argue that this loss of sensitivity is why men should not get circumcised. Many more people who have circumcised report problems of erectile dysfunction as well as a lack of pleasure during intercourse. However, unless you are reading this from your mother’s womb, there is not anything you could do about it!

Alcohol or drug use

Any article with a list of causes to some bad medical ailment always seems to include ‘Alcohol or drug use’. When it comes to a numb penis, alcohol and drug use could be a big contributor. For starters, there is nothing unusual if a person only loses penile sensation when they consume drugs or alcohol. But if this person’s consumption intensifies as well as becomes more frequent, erectile dysfunction will occur. This person will also need to increase penile sensitivity.

In addition, considering how intense the consumption is, the alcohol or drugs will begin to muddy up the blood vessels in the body, preventing messages from the brain, like instructions to become hard or to ejaculate, from traveling a quick and efficient path.

Masturbating too much

Excessive masturbation can make a penis lose sensitivity for a number of reasons. Constant rubbing and pulling will, of course, make a penis less sensitive to touch. Sadly, this penile sensitivity becomes gradually worse, once the individual begins to obtain more pleasure from masturbation than intercourse. As a result, masturbation will become more frequent. In the process, the penis will become even less sensitive. Less masturbation could improve penile sensitivity.

This is an excerpt from a study published in the journal Fertil Steril.

Some men obtain greater pleasure from masturbation than they do with sexual intercourse and may continue deep-rooted habits such as frequent masturbation or using idiosyncratic masturbation techniques. Studies have shown a correlation between DO (delayed orgasms) and men with idiosyncratic masturbation practices. Also, with increasing frequency of masturbation, the sensitivity of the penis can decline and lead to a vicious cycle where the man increases masturbation force to counteract the declining sensitivity, therefore leading to worsening DO. Vaginal intercourse or orogenital stimulation may not be able to replicate the stimulation achieved through idiosyncratic masturbation and this may result in reduced penile stimulation leading to difficulty achieving an orgasm.

Sedentary lifestyle

One cause of lack of sensation could be that someone is simply not active enough. Sitting down, whether at a computer or watching television, will put pressure on your perineum as well as your prostate. These are the same areas in the penis that nerves and blood vessels travel. As a result, a person who spends a lot of time in such positions may have more difficulty in both feeling sexual sensations as well as building an erection.

In addition, anyone who spends a lot of time sitting is not exercising as much as they should. Most likely, if someone is not exercising, there is a greater chance that they are overweight. Being overweight adds more difficulty for the blood vessels to efficiently go through your body and reach your penis.

The finesse of masturbation

As mentioned earlier, excessive masturbation may cause penile sensitivity. However, the way that someone masturbates can significantly contribute to penile sensitivity. When someone masturbates with an exceptionally tight grip they may become desensitized to pleasure any other way. One way that a person could improve penis sensitivity is to masturbate in a different way.

For example, if someone uses a tight grip during masturbation, perhaps when they are with their partner and do not receive the same pressure or sensation that they are used to, they run the risk of not feeling any pleasure. There are ways around this, literally. During masturbation, try using lighter strokes. During intercourse, find positions that require a tighter fit.

Peyronie’s disease

Peyronie’s disease occurs when plaque builds up inside the penis. This condition creates scar tissue much more sensitive than regular penile tissue.
