Some sexual encounters are just mind-blowing and way better than others, but why? Does it have to do with the partner’s appearance, age or body type? What is the key element that makes all the difference?! I believe great sex depends on the level and way of stimulation on the erogenous zones, as simple as it sounds. The more one pays attention to those body areas and give enough time to properly stimulate them the hotter the sex will be at the end.
An erogenous zone is an area of the body with heightened sensitivity that can produce a sexual response when stimulated. Erogenous zones are extra sensitive due to concentrations of nerve endings in these areas. There are the obvious suspects, which include the genital areas, breasts and nipples. However, the female body is way more complex and offers many other sensitive spots beyond those “basics”.
Gentlemen, let’s talk about those erogenous zones, which are may not be known for everyone, yet they are major contributors for the ultimate sex experience.
The Erogenous Zones You May Have Heard Of…
1. Her Ears
Human ears contain hundreds of sensory receptors inside, and the outside skin is also very sensitive. Because of this, it’s best to be gentle when stimulating the ears. Lightly trace the outside of her ear, and then move in to kiss and nibble the earlobes. She might also enjoys whispering or soft blowing in order to cause that tingly, goosebumps feeling.
2. The Nape of Her Neck
Most guys focus on the throat when things get heated, but the nape or back of the neck is another hot zone. Depending on the position, it can be difficult for you to reach the nape of her neck with your lips, but a light touch with the tip of your fingers can feel amazing. You can stimulate the sensitive nerve endings with light caresses while kissing, and run your fingernails down the back of her neck to produce a tingly shiver.
3. Her Butt
This one may not be too shocking, but many women automatically disregard the butt if they know they don’t enjoy anal play. But it’s worth giving a try to convince her about it. Assure her that your intention is not associated with full-on penetration. Gently caress the outside skin or even softly persuade her to let you do some light fingering. It is a great way to take advantage of the numerous sensitive nerve ends inside her anus. Some women even enjoy gentle licking!
4. Her Fingertips
Think about it: our fingertips are one of the most sensitive areas of our body. Though we don’t usually think about fingers as being sexy, holding hands or softly tickling the fingertips during sex is both erotic and intimate. To kick it up a notch, you can tenderly suck on each of her fingers, one at a time. Maintaining eye contact is essential here in order to fully feel the attention being lavished on her.
5. Her Lower Back
As we might know from the anatomy books, the nerves in the small of our back, or sacrum, are connected to our pelvis, making this region sensitive to sexual stimulation (for women). Whether it’s the tickle of a light touch or more forceful pressure, many women find this type of sensory play appealing. If you want to get creative with it, try experimenting with temperatures using an ice cube or heat pad.
…And the ones you may have not yet heard about…
So maybe those were a little obvious, but you probably didn’t see these coming! Here are a few more spots that are definitely worth trying out.
6. Her Inner Wrists
This sensitive pulse point can be a great way to get the action started. Lightly caress the skin of the inner wrist to get your partner going, and later on, this can progress to kissing and soft licking. Part of the appeal with this zone is the “danger” factor: you have taken command of one of her most vulnerable areas.
7. Her Armpits
That’s right, the armpits are an erogenous zone! There’s nothing like a little titillation to take the action from silly to sexy. Think about how responsive and ticklish her armpit is — this can be translated into sexual sensitivity. Start with light touching, and slowly accelerate into brisker motions. The feeling of being tickled but also aroused can be thrilling.
8. Her Scalp
The scalp is chock-full of nerve endings — just think about how nice it feels for both men and women when someone plays with your hair. While kissing, you should run your fingernails through her hair and along her scalp to stimulate that tingly feeling. Remember: focusing on the nape of the neck or the back of the ears while doing this can be a super hot way to stimulate multiple erogenous zones at once.
9. Her Stomach
This is an area that you can take advantage of with a high level of response. The key to this erogenous zone is teasing. It’s so close to the danger zone that touching this area can actually promote the flow of blood to her clit and vagina. Light, teasing touches with your tongue and fingertips are the best ways to stimulate this erogenous zone, along with temperature play using an ice cube or cold washcloth.
10. Her Knees
Believe it or not: stimulating the back of your woman’s knee can actually be super sexy. Again, this has to do with the sensitivity of the region and how ticklish it is. Give an extra massage on her legs during foreplay, paying special attention to the back of your knee using both your fingers and tongue.
One can never be sure which erogenous zones are most sensitive for the actual partner, so the only way to find out is by trying things out. Sensitivity varies from person to person, and there isn’t a specific way to tell which spots will be the best turn-ons for her.
What Are a Woman’s Most Erogenous Zones?
Finally, let’s briefly talk about the obvious ones: the most erogenous areas are the ones most involved in intercourse, including the nipples, clitoris, G-spot, cervix, and vaginal opening. Without a doubt: stimulation (by finger, tongue, vibrator) of these areas is very effective to reach an orgasm. The most erogenous secondary zones change from person to person. So test and try out as many areas as possible to figure out which are the most sensitive zones on your partner’s body. Have fun experimenting!
