Erogenous zones are parts of the body that excite sexual feelings when touched or stimulated. Often, erogenous zones are areas of the body where the skin is particularly rich in nerves. But do you really know how many erogenous zones men and women have and where your most important erogenous zones lie?
Many people think only of the genitals when they hear about erogenous zones. In fact, we have a large number of erogenous zones on the body, which, if touched, can give a feeling of pleasure or cause someone to become sexually aroused. For example, the temples, armpits and cheeks are also erogenous zones, which can give a feeling of pleasure if you caress them during sex.
Below we give you a guide to some of the body’s most important erogenous zones:
● The skin is the largest erogenous zone we have. Gentle, sensual strokes on the skin make you relax and become more open.
● The genitals, breasts, and lips are the zones which evoke the greatest pleasure the fastest. Be gentle and remember the area all around. For example, the clitoris is only the tip of the iceberg and you can greatly arouse the desire also by caressing the area around.
● The earlobes, neck and inner thighs are for some people a little less erogenous, but still worth paying extra attention to.
● The ear, palm and the outer part of the little finger are smaller, but still erogenous zones. Awaken the feeling with light strokes. Using a finger, gently stroke across the area and feel the tingling sensation spread.
● The feet, especially in men, are very sensitive and associated with lust. For example, you can stroke the underside of the leg, just above the heel. Here, the nerves sit closer to the skin which helps to create desire.
It is important to keep in mind that erogenous zones can sit in different places depending on the person. There can be a big difference in where we each think is nice to be caressed and in principle, the whole body can be considered a big erogenous zone.
Be curious and discover both your own and your partner’s erogenous zones. In some cases, places other than the genitals can actually develop into such erogenous zones, that some people can achieve orgasm only through the right touching of that zone.
