You’ve probably heard of the erogenous zones before, even if you’re not completely familiar with all of them. An erogenous zone is “an area of the human body that has heightened sensitivity, the stimulation of which may result in the production of sexual fantasies, sexual arousal and orgasm.” The best part about erogenous zone is that there are parts of the body that you probably never thought could release sexual feeling in your partner, but if stimulated in the right away they can be amazing. If you missed part one of this series, be sure to click over and get the lowdown on the first set of zones.
- The Nose – This one probably made you do a double take! Don’t worry, you’re not going to stimulate her nose with touch, but smell, of course. Research has been done that shows that a woman will get very easily turned off if you smell bad, so your first order of business is to make sure that you don’t have body odor. Don’t forget to pay special attention to your genitals as it can get very hot and sweaty down there throughout the day.
The other part of stimulating this zone is finding a scent that turns her on. It might take a few tries since the sense of smell is very particular. Experts suggest a combination of cucumber and liquorice to get her excited. You should also experiment with essential oils, like patchouli and ginger, which enhance sexual energy, or ylang ylang, which is supposed to increase sexual interest.
- The Mouth – The mouth is heavily involved with sexual activity of any kind, from an innocent first kiss, right down to the hottest, dirtiest things we do in bed. It’s no wonder that it’s one of the top erogenous zones on the list. A first kiss releases dopamine in the brain, a neurotransmitter that rewards the brain’s pleasure center. Kissing a long term partner will release oxytocin, a hormone and neurotransmitter that is also released during sex and orgasm. Men generally like sloppier kisses, but studies have shown that women do not. Something to keep in mind guys, better to keep it clean. When kissing her, allow her to take the lead and show you how she likes to be kissed. This will teach you a lot about what you can do to turn her on. Vary the intensity of your kisses from soft and sexy to passionate and firm. Run the tip of your tongue or finger lightly along her lips. Don’t forget to use your hands while kissing. They can be grabbing her hips to pull her closer or running through her hair and stroking her scalp and nape of the neck. Kissing can involve a lot more than the lips!
- The shoulders/back – While you’re kissing her neck and focusing some energy on the nape of her neck, don’t forget to travel down to her shoulders and back. You can start with light kisses that run along the length of her shoulders and then travel down her spine. On your way back up you can intensify the kisses, making them deeper, firmer and more passionate. You can lick and suck on her skin as well. The position here is particularly arousing and sexy because you’re behind her in a position of authority and she can’t see what simulation is coming next. For some women that alone can be a big turn on.
- The breasts – Men love breasts, you probably knew that already! But it’s important to keep in mind that stimulating them should be just as much about her pleasure as it is about yours. That means pay attention to the cues that she’s sending when you’re going to town on them and don’t spend all night just focused on her breasts. They may be your favorite, but she might get more pleasure when you explore some new, unknown areas. Again, sensitivity can vary a great deal when it comes to a woman’s breasts and nipples. Pay attention to her cues and ask her what she likes. For some, light caresses, licking, and sucking is all she needs. For others, they might even welcome some nibbling and deeper caresses.
Alright men, this should have given you a few more great ideas to introduce into your foreplay techniques. The best part about many of these erogenous zones is that you can caress and stimulate them throughout the day to give her a little jolt of pleasure and get her thinking about what’s coming later that night.
