Pudendal nerve

The Pudendal Nerve is the nerve bundle that transmits penile sensation and allows orgasm, urination, and defecation. The pudendal nerve can be susceptible to injury via the perineum or through childbirth. The pudendal nerve innervates the bulbospongiosus and ischiocavernous muscles; spasms in these muscles are primarily responsible for the feelings of orgasm.
