Perfect question for this time of the year. Its most likely the 'Sense of Joy'.
Note: Since its a sense, and one being delivered to the brain via the STT, it is probably meant to refer to vibrotactile perception of erotic stimuli.
Like I said, sense of joy [of sex]!

At page 320 of Nieuwenhuys, Voogd and van Huijzens (2008) The Human
Central Nervous System I found the word gaudiception, but google only
returns the very same book as where I found it in. What word did they
have in mind and what does it mean? This is its context: The
spinothalamic component of the anterolateral funiculus, known to form
part of the circuitry concerned with perception of temperature, touch,
and pain, is most probably also involved in gaudiception.
