Breaking news… The penis is not the only erogenous zone for men! HARD to believe right!??! Focusing on a man’s “other” zones (male erogenous zones) can take your bedroom time to pleasure time.

Male Erogenous Zones

Let’s Review the Male Erogenous Zones:

Male erogenous zones are any area of a mans body that can create a sexual response when stimulated. These sensitive areas can generate sexual responses that are similar to or just as satisfying as playing with your partner’s private parts, thanks to the release of the same feel-good chemicals that are activated in the brain during sex. Whether you choose to you explore these areas during foreplay or during sex, giving these special spots some TLC will show your partner how into their entire body you are, and motivate them to give you their all. Just remember that everyone is different, so don’t be disappointed if your partner doesn’t react to touch in a particular area. The good news is that there are 16 male erogenous zones to explore, so block off some “do not disturb” time on your calendar! Maybe you’ll find a few more!

1. Feet

Okay, we get it – some people don’t like feet, not their own, not their partners. That’s okay. But because feet are sensitive, they can be very erotic. A nice foot rub can be relaxing, and if you want to go a little toe-sucking, we won’t judge.

2. Belly Button

The belly button is an area of the body that rarely gets enough attention, especially on men. You’ll know soon enough if this is a turn-on by gently making circles inside his navel with your finger or favorite toy. Belly buttons are great for food play, too. Drizzle chocolate sauce and tease the area just above his genitals with your tongue.

3. Hands

Like his feet, hands are packed with nerve endings that hold a lot of tension that you can relieve with a hand massage. You can also focus on your partner’s fingers by stroking them with your own or sucking on them with your mouth.

4. Scalp

The feeling of fingernails gently running across the scalp can be enough to send shivers through his body. It’s an instant relaxer that warms the body up for the intimacy that’s coming next.

5. Back of the Knees

The skin behind his knees is super-sensitive, so kissing or running your fingers over it will excite his nerves, thus exciting your partner.

6. Nape of the Neck

The nape of the neck is where the hairline meets your skin. Neck stimulation sends signals to your circulatory system, increasing blood flow. Try gently stroking or kissing this area before and during sex.

7. Mouth and Lips

Most men are just as amped about kissing as you are, and as one of the most sensitive membranes of the body, lips can be the focus of pleasure, not just a tool. Try nibbling on your partner’s lips, stroking them with your tongue, and gently rubbing them with your fingers.

8. Scrotum

This soft, sensitive tissue surrounding his testicles is packed with nerve endings. Holding, cupping, and very gently rubbing or massaging them is all very sensual for men, but be sure to ask him how much pressure he prefers.

9. Inner Thigh

This thick-skinned, muscular area can handle a little more pressure than others, so caressing, massaging, or lightly tracing your nails along his inner thighs can be an awesome turn-on.

10. Penis

Well, duh. Instead of honing in just on the tip of the penis, though, focus on the entire shaft. Make a circle around the base of his penis with your hand and squeeze gently while pleasuring him to boost blood flow and sensitivity. Want to make him go wild? Try a slow blow.

11. Nipples

While some men have ultra-sensitive nipples, others aren’t too fond of stimulation there. If he’s into it, you can try gently tracing the area with your finger or kissing them softly. To up the ante, gently squeeze his nipples as he orgasms to make his climax more powerful.

12. Perineum

The nerve endings in this area actually span all the way from his pubic bone to his anus and into his thighs. One über-sensitive spot is right beneath the scrotum—try pressing very gently here or lightly flicking your tongue on this spot. Then there’s the anus itself, which houses the prostate (a.k.a. the P-spot, or “male G-spot”).

13. Pubic Hairline

You might know the area around your pubic bone as a huge erogenous zone, but it actually is for men, too. When he’s lying down, start right under his belly button and trace circles around the area. This spot—right where his belt would be—is often overlooked.

14. Lower Back

Here we go with the massages again. But sex can be a great stress reliever, and massaging his lower back can help him relax and set the mood. While you’re kneading the muscles of his lower back, take the opportunity to tease his butt cheeks and perineum. He’ll welcome the surprise. And don’t be afraid to use lotions and oils to heighten the mood.

15. The Back of the Neck

Similar to the nape of the neck, this area is a little lower on the neck and packed with nerve endings that send erotic signals to his brain. Give it some love by kissing it, massaging it, or breathing hot air down the back of his neck. Some guys might even like a little scratching, especially if they have longer hair.

16. Ears

Aside from whispering about what you want to do to him later (which you absolutely should do, you sex goddess), you can also caress or lightly nibble on his earlobes for an added arousal boost. Don’t forget the patch of skin right behind his ears. Kiss it slowly, and maybe he will return the favor.

Reaching arousal is an important part of sexual interaction. Let these top male erogenous zones get you there. Take your time, tease a little and drive him wild!
