There are certain spots in the body that are guaranteed to turn you on. A slight touch or just feeling your partner’s breath here can take the heat up instantly. These highly sensitive spots that elicit a sexual response from you are known as erogenous zones. The lips, nipples, and genitals are the obvious hot spots, but the body has hundreds of nerve endings that will take you from zero to oh-my-god-just-take-me in a hot second. These zones differ from individual to individual, but below are the seven most common but ignored erogenous zones.
1. Nape of the neck
The nape of the neck is one of the most sensitive areas in the body. Even while making out, you often move into the necking territory exactly for that reason. The nape has multiple nerve endings along with thin skin, which adds to the sensitivity. To turn on your partner, just show the neck some love. You can lick, suck, or just touch the nape with your lips or fingers.
2. Inner thighs
It’s quite obvious why this is a highly erogenous zone. The inner thighs are right next to the honey pot, so it has to be a sensitive area. Before you hit the jackpot, spend a little time around the inner thighs to pump up the heat. Soft kisses and running your fingers up and down are some of the most loved things to do in this zone. It is also another hot spot for temperature play, like using a cube of ice.
The ears are full of multiple sensory receptors and nerves. That makes it one of the most sensitive areas in the human body. A light touch is enough to give you a pleasing tingle. Lightly caressing the ears, kissing them, or nibbling on them can light up all sorts of fireworks in your partner. To add to the pleasure, whisper some dirty talk in your partner’s ears.
Now, this may come as a bit of a shock or surprise, but the armpits actually are one of the prominent erogenous zones in the body. Not everyone might be up for it, but the armpits are full of pheromones that can rev up your partner’s engines. If you can look past some sweat and hair, what elicits laughter from your partner will also have them moaning in pleasure. Brush your partner’s armpits in up and down strokes and then move on to adding some pressure and moving your fingers in a circular motion.
5. Lower back
The back is often the place you hold on to during sex. So, it should be no surprise then that the back is one of the most common erogenous zones in the body. It might be because of the proximity of the lower back to the pelvis, but the lower back is a sensitive spot. Use light touches and caress the lower back, or you can use your lips. And if you want to get a little kinky, caress the lower back with a whip or a riding crop.
The wrist, especially the inner wrist, is a highly erogenous zone. Just rubbing your partner’s wrist while holding their hand is enough to send a tingle down the spine. The thin skin on the wrist is what makes it a highly sensitive area. A light kiss, caress, and even some temperature play can evoke strong sensations in the inner wrist.
You might have seen people pulling their partner’s hair while kissing or having sex in movies. Ever wondered why? That’s because the scalp is full of nerve endings making it one of the more effective erogenous zones in the body. Massaging the scalp can be relaxing, but with the right kind of pressure, it can also be erotic. Since the scalp is right between the ears and the nape of the neck, two other erogenous zones, stimulate all three to reap the most benefits.
