the term given to someone who is ridiculously fond of textures, touching things, being touched, fine fabrics, anything that panders to the sense of touch. loves being touched to similar degrees that cats and dogs love being pet.
however, there is no sexual connotation to the term. a sensation-whore loves to be touched in any way, not specifically sexual.
"I love back rubs, head rubs, hugs, any excuse to be touched. I'm such a sensation-whore! ><;"
