Erogenous zones and how to keep them stimulated


Ever get goosebumps when a partner touches a certain part of your body? Congratulations! Your body is covered in highly sensitive areas you may never have even thought to explore. Stimulating these areas can lead to sexual response, which means you’re in for a satisfying time. These erogenous zones, as they’re called, can contribute to sexual arousal. Think of them as the road map to your pleasure zones for you or your partner. You can certainly stimulate the clit externally, but you can also go for a little indirect. We all know that keeping up healthy sex life in the long-term. But where, exactly, are your erogenous zones? And how can you play with them during foreplay and sex?

Tips to keep in mind

Everyone is different

Think of the erogenous zones as a kind of body map. Each person is new territory, and to map the territory correctly you must go exploring. A woman may go wild when you lick her nipples, but it may hardly excite another. One man may get turned on if you stimulate his anus, while another may be grossed out. It depends on the individual – what works for one person may have no effect on another. There are also a few differences between what works for men and what works for women. To liven up your sex life, spend some time getting to know your partner’s erogenous zones. Also, keep in mind what turns on your lover may change from one encounter to another.

Touch and feel

Communication is the key if you and your partner want to master your erogenous zones. Explore each other’s body fully, and don’t be afraid to try something new. Try out different kinds of caresses to find out the sensitivity of his or her erogenous zones. A light play of the fingertips may be right in one area while scratching, pinching or vigorous rubbing might be required to activate others.

But finding that out needs patience and paying attention to your partner’s reactions. After discovering each other’s most sensitive areas, you can go further and start creating your own secondary zones – areas on the body that become associated with sexual stimulation. For example, suppose your lover caresses your inner thighs after you attain sexual climax. This creates a particular association between your inner thighs and your orgasm, turning the area into a secondary erogenous zone that makes you wild when stimulated.

Look, no hands!

With all this talk of stroking and stimulation, don’t forget that many instruments can be used to stimulate the erogenous zones. Some areas even turn into erogenous zones simply because a certain trick is used. For example, touching someone’s eyelid may not be arousing, but touching them with your wet lips may do the trick. Perhaps begin with the mouth, and see what different effects it can create in the other by using your lips, your tongue, your breath, or nibbling gently with the teeth. Biting or scratching or spanking may also bring some otherwise dormant zone to life.

Invite other body parts to the party as well. For men, rubbing your penis over certain parts of your body may arouse her in ways nothing else can. And women: try caressing him using your boobs or nipples, or letting your hair down to brush lightly over sensitive parts of his body. Or bring sex toys, vibrators, silk scarves, feathers, lubricants, or ice cubes into the fray. The point is to be creative and exploratory and remember that the entire body can be an erogenous zone.


Touching is a powerful means for eliciting sexual arousal. Here, we establish the topographical organization of bodily regions triggering sexual arousal in humans. A total of 704 participants were shown images of same and opposite-sex bodies and asked to color the bodily regions whose touching they or members of the opposite sex would experience as sexually arousing while masturbating or having sex with a partner. Resulting erogenous zone maps (EZMs) revealed that the whole body was sensitive to sexual touching, with erogenous hotspots consisting of genitals, breasts, and anus. The EZM area was larger while having sex with a partner versus while masturbating, and was also dependent on sexual desire and heterosexual and homosexual interest levels. We conclude that tactile stimulation of practically all bodily regions may trigger sexual arousal. Extension of the erogenous zones while having sex with a partner may reflect the role of touching in the maintenance of reproductive pair bonds.
