When it comes to sexy stimulation, the first stops we think of are the genitals and the nipples, right? It makes perfect sense, since those are super sensitive parts that are associated with feeling good. And while those bits are fabulous and generally a smart place to touch (though always ask first), don’t forget that there are so many, many more places on the body that can benefit from a little additional amorous attention. This week’s tips features four unlikely erogenous zones to help heighten a sexy scenario.
1) While they are right up front in the action most of the time, an oft overlooked zone that feels amazing when skimmed is the forearms. The soft skin responds instantly to light grazes and gentle caresses, though some folks may prefer a harder touch. Start at the wrists and work your way up to the inside of the elbow, using your fingers, lips or even your breath to drive your partner wild with pleasure.
2) Head down, down, down – past those tasty genitals and even further than behind the knees, all the way south to the toesies. Feet are an insanely sensitive part of the body that enjoy everything hard kneading to tender toe sucking. Just be sure to ask before you touch those toes – as some folks do not like their feet messed with, and might even reflexively kick a little. It’s always good to inquire even if you know their feet are in bounds – there are many ways that feet can be stimulated and the feet’s owner would know how they like it best.
3) Sure it seems like a stretch (or maybe it’s because you may need to physically stretch to get this spot), but one deliciously sensitive spot that often gets missed due to its tucked away location is the back of the knees. It might not sound too sexy, but this area is packed with nerve endings and quite responsive to even the slightest of brushing. Be mindful of getting too rough, though, as amazing can turn into annoying if you overdo it on the sensation.
4) Yes, it’s cliché, but people call the brain the biggest sex organ for a reason. And no, they don’t mean that you need to actually touch someone’s grey matter. Arousal starts in the head, where it causes the body to react and various tissues to swell and get excited. Dirty talk, role playing and visual stimulation (such as strip teases) are great ways to crank the brain into high gear and get your partner in the mood.
