That sounds like a legitimate answer. I scratchded my hand once..and kept scratching. The itch left, and when i pulled my hand away i had shed the skin off, and it was red, then it started to hurt.
I had a machine like this I called it my fat shaker.. It had a large leather strap that wrapped around you and hooked back to the machine as it moved up and down very quickly! You flipped the red switch and it shook the holy crud out of your fat behind and thighs! Flip the green and it shut off. I believe I forgot the dial to raise and lower the intensity of the vibration! Within a second or two my thighs were numb and after a few minutes, without the belt I was sore from the vibration.. but it did not hurt during the vibrating! Odd.. But that is part of my reasoning about your question.. vibration or friction causing numbing! [diagram=306_0]
I think that as long as the stimulus is constant and not initially discomforting, you become habitualised to the stimulation. Over time the effects can become damaging but you don't immediately notice them because they are gradual.
