Picture this: You and your partner are getting into some extracurricular activity one night. You graze your fingertips or exhale your breath ever so slightly to see a trail of goosebumps pop up over your partner's skin. Congratulations — you've tapped into an erogenous zone.
An erogenous zone is an area of the body that has heightened sensitivity, either because it's jam-packed with nerves or it just simply doesn't get that much attention. While erogenous zones can differ from person to person, there are a few that we all share.
Stimulating these magical zones can evoke a sexual response from your body, meaning you (with or without your partner) are about to have a good time. Add these body parts to your list of places to explore next time you're getting down and dirty.
Ever wonder why your natural romantic response is to kiss your partner on the lips? That's because they're super sensitive to the touch. Normal kissing can help get you aroused — but if you want to take things to the next level, try lightly nibbling on your partner's lips.
However, be sure to talk to your partner before going to town. It's important to know if he or she prefers lots of kissing, nibbling or licking. If licking is their thing, outline their lips with the tip of your tongue — it doesn't have to be sloppy, just sexy.
Ever heard of "necking?" There's a reason for its name. The neck is another sensitive area of the body, so lightly kissing it will bring your partner to a whole new level.
While the entire neck is an erogenous zone, try and find the spot your partner favors most. For example, when you move your way down to your partner's neck, gauge his or her reaction as you lightly kiss, lick or nibble in various spots. (Remember — don't bite so hard as to leave a hickey!) Is it the spot where you can feel their pulse racing? Or where the neck meets the clavicle? Find that spot and your partner will thank you.
Ladies, take off those earrings and experiment with your earlobes. Chock-full of nerve endings, you might be surprised by how sensitive your earlobes are.
Anything as simple as the breath from a whisper from your partner can get your blood racing, but you might even enjoy a gentle tug — either from your partner's fingers or teeth. You'll be shocked by how much a simple movement on the tiniest body part can alter your mood.
While the back of your knees might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to places you want your partner to explore, it's actually one of the sexiest hacks. Because it's rarely stimulated, and there tends to be less or no hair on the backs of your knees, your skin will go wild when stimulated by your partner.
Try stroking the hair or skin on the backs of your partner's knees next time you're snugglin and request your partner to do the same to you; it may lead to some extraordinary one-on-one time.
That's right, the brain is an erogenous zone. No, you can't touch it and elicit a physical reaction like the other zones we've talked about, but you can let your mind wander to dirty thoughts, fantasies, or anything else of a sexual nature. Are you in the mood for some roleplay? Dressing up in fishnet stockings?
