Women’s pain tolerance

Women react faster, and more acutely, to pain, although their overall resistance to long-term discomfort is greater than men’s.

In a sample of young adults, females showed “overwhelmingly” greater sensitivity to pressure on the skin on every part of the body. In childhood and maturity, women have a tactile sensitivity  so superior  to men’s that in some tests there is no overlap between the scores of the two sexes; in these, the least sensitive woman is more sensitive than the most sensitive man.
