Exploring Your Erogenous Zones
For most of us, there isn’t just one way to be turned on. We have several erogenous zones on the body that can lead to screaming out for more during sex. In fact, maybe sex (penetrative or oral) doesn’t have to happen every time you’re wanting to feel turned on. Have you and your partner(s) ever indulged in only touching each other’s pleasure areas? Here are some sensitive erogenous zones that you may or may not yet have explored:
Giving or receiving a scalp massage as foreplay can be a great way to relax. The scalp is full of nerve endings, making it one of the most sensitive zones of the body, increasing blood flow and releasing feel-good hormones, serotonin and dopamine.
The inner thighs
Because they’re so close to the penis or vagina, inner thighs are super hot to play with for sexual arousal. Try firm pressure to avoid a tickling sensation and feel free to use your fingers, tongue, or lips, asking your partner which they preferred best. Before they return the favour.
This could just descend into a tickle fight as the armpits are super sensitive for most people. However, they can be a pleasure area for the giver as well as the receiver. This is because of the close proximity to your lover’s natural scent, which can open up neural pleasure pathways, explains intimacy expert Miyoko Rifkin.
Lightly massaging, touching, or kissing the whole neck area makes for a popular foreplay technique, but especially at the nape of the neck.
Focusing on the stomach during foreplay can help lead to stronger orgasms. This is because your ab muscles are connected to the pelvic floor muscles. It’s also a super sensitive pleasure area of the body, so it could be a win-win for you and your partner(s). You’ll never know until you try it!.
Whether you’re hearing sweet nothings or absolute filth being whispered into your ear, it’s likely that this is an arousing erogenous zone for you. Light biting, gentle licking, or the afore-mentioned dirty talk, try them all with your partner, and don’t forget the earlobe. According to Caleb Backe, a Health and Wellness Expert, this is one of the most sensitive yet overlooked areas of the body.
