Looking to spice things up in the bedroom? Whether you're trying to surprise your longtime partner with some new moves or just starting out a hot new fling, it can never hurt to add some tricks to your bedroom repertoire.
One part of the body that's often overlooked when it comes to foreplay is the mouth. Aside from the typical kissing and oral you both are probably used to, there probably isn't a whole lot more your mouth is doing during or before sex, right? It's time to take your mouth to the next level.
While many may look at foreplay as a chore that needs crossed off the list before you can get down to the nitty gritty, it can actually be one of the most enjoyable parts of doing the deed if you let it. And what's the perfect body part practically designed for teasing a sexual partner into nirvana? The mouth, of course.
Read on for all the different ways you can use your mouth to ensure your partner hits the ceiling during your next sex sesh.
If your partner happens to be a guy, then this little trick might be the most sexy of all, just because its visual is an obvious allusion to oral sex. Start by placing the tip of your tongue on the webbed part of his skin in between his fingers. Slide your tongue up the side of the finger, stimulating the rarely-used nerves on this sensitive part of his skin. Once you reach the end of his finger, take it between your lips. Believe us when we say this sight will drive him crazy — all he'll be thinking about is what you may or may not be doing to him down below in a few minutes.
Just like with the inside of the fingers, the nerves beneath the skin's surface on the ear are rarely stimulated — so once you do tap into those goldmines, there's no going back. Give your partner's earlobe a quick lick, nibble or tug and see how he or she reacts. If you want to tantalize her even more, start by placing your mouth an inch away from her ear, then lightly exhaling or sighing, so your warm breath wakes up her senses and lets her know she's in for a treat. (If you see goosebumps, you know you're doing your job.)
If you think men are the only ones who enjoy a little thigh action, then you'd be wrong. Men aren't exclusive to enjoying a little kissing and licking along the thigh; women enjoy it just as much, especially when their partner is teasing their way up the thigh toward the crotch.
Start by placing a barely-there kiss at the top of the knee; work your way up the thigh, increasing the pressure of your lips on your partner's skin as you go. If your hair is long enough, have the tips drag along as you go, providing a different tingly sensation. If you want to continue the tantalizing, start all over again at the top of your partner's other knee; the pressure will build until he or she can't take it any more.
You may feel a bit strange doing this at first, but humming while you work your partner's erotic zones can make a huge difference. The vibration of your mouth will remind your partner of a built-in sex toy, and the different vibrations your mouth is making due to the different pitches in your humming will drive him or her wild. Lower your voice to create slower vibrations; raise it a notch or two for faster vibrations.
Your tongue can be your most versatile tool when it comes to sex and foreplay. Aside from the usual licking you already know your partner enjoys, utilize the underside of your tongue. Its soft, slippery edge will arouse nerves that your partner didn't know they had. Switch back and forth between the underside of your tongue and the upper, rougher side to stimulate different nerves and keep your partner guessing. Try it on his or her nipples (yes, even guys enjoy their nipples being touched — there's a reason they react to your touch!), neck, or other erotic zones you know they love touched. You can even try it while kissing or during oral.
