Physical euphoria

Physical euphoria can be described as feelings of pleasure and comfort within and across one's body. This euphoria typically feels somewhat comparable to the endorphin rushes felt during states of excitement or love, the coziness of a comfortable bed, and the rush of an orgasm. The forcefulness of this effect can range from subtle to overwhelmingly pleasurable beyond even the most intense full body orgasm possible.

Physical euphoria is often accompanied by other coinciding effects such as cognitive euphoria and muscle relaxation. It is most commonly induced under the influence of heavy dosages of a wide variety of compounds, such as opioids, stimulants, and GABAergics. Although less consistent, it can also occur in a more powerful form under the influence of psychedelics and dissociatives.
