So you want to break out of that sexual rut. Here we introduce 6 of the most underrated erogenous zones to help make this happen. Add them to the assortment of your foreplay reportage and take your lovemaking experience to the next level.
Let’s First Define Erogenous Zones
Erogenous zones are the areas of the body that are most responsive to sensual touch. Essentially the body has primary erogenous zones, where nerve endings are concentrated. Of course this includes the genital area, particularly the clitoris and the head of the penis.
Aside from the primary erogenous zones there are the more neglected secondary erogenous zones, which have erotic significance due to sexual conditioning. For example, if a previous sexual partner always nibbled your ear lobes, when you were engaged in foreplay, then this may become an erogenous zone for you.
Back to Basics(Erogenous Zone 1)
The back can be considered one long erogenous zone. What we know as the ‘small of the back’ is particularly rich in nerve endings. Try running your fingers down your partner’s spine leaving a trail of soft kisses as you go then ending with the small of the back. See what reaction this gets from your partner.
We are sure you have tried this before but make more of a conscious effort to focus on this secondary erogenous zone. How about treating your partner to a sensual back massage after a long day at work to see where this leads you. A back massage will not only relieve tension but also increases blood flow to the pelvic area – I’m sure you get the idea!
Meet the Feet(Erogenous Zone 2)
Everyone’s heard of the foot fetish with more people having one than you would expect. However playing with feet isn’t just for those of us with a foot fetish. The feet and toes are incredibly sensitive, and touching them can elicit a powerful response.
There is a relatively large area of the brain that receives sensations from the feet and toes, so giving them your attention can be very stimulating. The ancient art of reflexology for instance has discovered that certain pressure points in the feet can bring about sexual arousal.
Not everyone will find a foot massage sexually arousing but adding this to your foreplay is definitely something to try with your partner.
Stomach It(Erogenous Zone 3)
Forget being body conscious about your tummy and enjoy how good it feels when this area is touched by your partner. The stomach area is such an erogenous zone that some woman can even reach orgasm just by flexing their muscles. Even if your not lucky enough to be able to do that, sensual touch in the area can send tantalising tingles down the whole body.
Unfortunately a lot of people tend to be self conscious about holding some weight around the tummy but don’t let your body image get in the way of enjoying the delights of this erogenous zone.
Bottoms Up(Erogenous Zone 4)
Big or small the bottom is one big erogenous zone for most of us. Just grab handfuls when you’re kissing, or give it a slap for more vigorous titillation. Don’t be shy. Ok, so not everyone will appreciate this type of sensual roughness, but for some it will be a huge turn on.
You might prefer prefer a lighter touch but be sure not to neglect this area. If your feeling a little self conscious, just focus on how you feel, rather than worrying about how you think you might look.
Those Knobbly Bits(Erogenous Zone 5)
How about our knobbly knees and elbows? Although they may not be considered our most attractive body parts, their erotic value should at least be considered and explored.
There are many nerve endings concentrated in the underside of these areas so why not take advantage of them. These can be delightfully ticklish spots and touching them can be extremely arousing for some. Try gently kissing and massaging them and test out the results.
Ear Me Out(Erogenous Zone 6)
Ears are super sensitive to touch, probably due to a large number of nerve endings. Although there’s no science yet to say why ears are erogenous, it seems to be a fairly common consensus that they are. Give them a nibble and treat yourself to the delights of ear sensitivity.
Sex is all about sensation, but what we often forget is that our bodies have a whole landscape of sexually responsive areas. All this being said, more research is needed to determine the precise effects of stimulating different areas of the body. In the meantime, we suggest a little personal experimentation with these 6 secondary erogenous zones. Naturally everybody’s sweet spots will vary but be sure to be adventurous and experimental with your partner.
Don’t forget the brain: We can’t stress this enough. Research suggests that the brain is actually our biggest erogenous zone. It is after all where sexual desire begins. It’s also the area that commands our orgasms.
