what about emotional? (pain and pleasure)
or expectationally?

from my own experiences (shots, etcc..)
the agony lies inside the 'mystery' or the fact that you're not sure
exactly what to expect.
being habitually exposed to something dulls the expectancy
(getting tattooed, sexual experiences, applying for a new position, change)
i dont think it's a matter of age
"dulled" senses are equatable to "maturity" not "age"
