Most people are familiar with the infamous 7 (seven, seven, seven, SEVEN!) erogenous zones that Monica referred to in FRIENDS! What some people might not know, though, is that there are in fact more than seven spots in the female body that are susceptible to those tingles!
Actually, each body is different - so here is a list, from head to toe, of the spots that should guarantee satisfaction every time!
1. Get a-head
While the head may not be an obvious erogenous zone, science says that massaging the scalp can release endorphins and oxytocin into your body, which will then enhance sexual pleasure! Get him to give you a head massage and work his magic right from the top!
2. Mind over matter
You know when your head is just not in the “game”? Well, that’s because experts say a woman’s most important sex organ is her brain! Whether it’s a stimulating conversation or something more (engaging in a little dirty talk with your partner the next time things are getting hot and heavy, maybe?) - it can totally lead to a session that will leave you speechless!
2. Love those lobes
There are more than 120 acupressure points on your ears, and Chinese acupuncturists believe that stimulating this area sends sexual energy whizzing all through the body! Next time you have a lip-lock going, gently caress his earlobes - and tell him to do the same to you!
3. Lick ’em lips
Kissing sends skyrocketing levels of dopamine to the brain (happy hormones)! You remember that first kiss, right? How amazing it felt? Well, it gets better! Because science says that making out with a long- term partner can release oxytocin in the body. When combined, oxytocin and dopamine, create an amazing, feel-good sexy mood! Take the lead - kiss him the way you want to be kissed. Trust us, it will turn you on too!
4. The nape of your neck
The back of your neck responds really well to nibbling, stroking, kissing - pretty much any gentle tactile sensation! It will send shivers down your spine and signals to your brain - making it an excellent go-to spot to get things started!
5. Tease the “twins”
Some women are more sensitive in this area than others - but the fact is that all of us are, to at least some extent, super-sensitive here! And yes, there are those who orgasm just by having their boobs touched the right way. The sensations from the nipples travel to the same part of the brain as sensations from the vagina, clitoris and cervix - which is why being touched here has such an orgasmic effect!
6. Getting hands-on
Your wrist is a spot that often gets overlooked by a lover! Get hands-on, so to speak, and reach your hand out to him. Tell him to work his way up from your fingertips! It will leave you happier than before!
7. Bringing sexy back
This is one of the most underrated erogenous zones of our bodies - and a spot that you should definitely pay more attention to! A woman’s lower back is incredibly sensitive, which makes it the perfect location for some kissing, nibbling and licking. Make time for a back massage from your partner! The slow and sensual rhythm will also create a real sense of intimacy and allow you to let go - leaving room for the hormones to work their magic!
8. Think about the thighs
The inner thighs are a highly sensitive, and respond very well to stroking, touching, licking, kissing! Making your man focus on this area instead of plunging straight for the oh-so-obvious area just north of this zone will allow anticipation to build up in a slow and steady way that could then lead to fireworks!
9. Weak in the knees
A woman’s knees may be the one part of the body that almost everybody overlooks! However, all the nerve endings in this location make it one of the most erogenous parts of the body. This area is SO sensitive, however, that you might want to tell your lover to take it easy when being attentive to this zone!
10. Don’t forget the feet
A large portion of the sensory nerves in the brain are connected to your feet, so again it sends signals to your brain that release “sexy” hormones! Even a simple foot massage can even get you going, believe us!
11. And, of course, the “happy” button
Now, you probably know this already, but it bears telling again. The clitoris is perhaps the most easily stimulated of the erogenous zones - which is because it’s home to more than 8,000 nerve endings! It is a spot that, if stimulated correctly, will guarantee a mind blowingly beautiful Big-O!
