In brief: Muscle injury

When you orgasm, the muscles tense up.
It is likely that this aggravates a small muscle injury which may be due to a tear, fatigue, or overuse of a portion of the muscle. I would recommend a gentle prolonged stretch of the muscle prior to sex in the future, drink plenty of liquids, and replenish any electrolytes with a sport drink.
