Everyone has sensitive touch points or erogenous zones on their bodies

Erogenous zones are areas of the human body that are especially sensitive. During sexual foreplay, stimulating these areas can encourage relaxation, promote blood flow, build arousal, enhance sexual pleasure, and help you or your partner achieve orgasm. Common erogenous zones include the armpits, lower abdomen, mouth, neck, breasts, buttocks, shoulders, lower back, and genitals.

Every person responds differently to stimulation in these areas, and factors like timing, mood, partner choice, and the type of stimulation can impact your preference.

It takes a bit of learning to find these. Whether you want to explore your own body or direct your partner, these awesome erogenous zones are sure to take things up a notch in the bedroom.

Here are some erogenous zones to stimulate to speed up climax and enhance arousal

erogenous zones


The mouth is a robust erogenous zone, which is one reason why kissing is such a popular part of foreplay. Lips, teeth, and tongue are all great tools to use when stimulating your partner’s mouth.


Let’s talk about this sensitive and often overlooked spot on the body. Your ears have many nerves and sensory receptors on the inside and outside. Any movement, such as light stroking or touching, is bound to give you a pleasing tingly sensation. Lightly lick, kiss, or nibble on your partner’s earlobes. Ask them what they enjoy most or prefer and plan your foreplay accordingly. You can also whisper lightly or blow into your partner’s ears since the skin in the outer ear (the pinna) has many receptors.


The neck is one of the most popular erogenous zones, from the nape at the back of the neck to the sides below the jawline. Many people enjoy stimulation along the neck with a light touch or kissing.

Fingertips and palms

Did you know that fingertips are the most sensitive body part? Since they’re nearby, palms are also quite sensitive. Put your partner’s hand in yours, with the palm facing up, and slowly move your fingers on the palm. You can also tickle the inside of her hand with your finger. To increase intimacy, look into the eyes while you touch the palms. Since you’re in the area, why leave fingertips behind? Suck on the fingertips lightly, one by one, and watch your partner revel in pleasure.


It’s surprising how many people quickly move over the nipples, overlooking their potential. When nipples are stimulated, they send signals to the genital sensory cortex. Also, nipples have hundreds of nerve endings that make them sensitive touchpoints on women and men.

The good news about nipples is that there are a lot of ways to stimulate them. Kissing, licking, and using a feather are just a few options. Don’t forget to give due attention to the areola too. If you and your partner are into rough or kinky sex, consider introducing nipple clamps in the bedroom.

Inner thighs

The inner thighs are another sensitive spot on the female body due to their closeness to the genitals. Light strokes and touch can stimulate your loins. Run your fingers down your thighs and slowly move upwards. If you’re discovering new ways to please your partner, try kissing her on the inner thighs slowly, moving your way to the vagina.

Genital region

Genitals are the most commonly known erogenous zones and the ultimate source of sexual arousal. For women, specific erogenous zones in the genital area include the pubic mound, the clitoris, the G-spot (two to three inches inside, on the front vaginal wall), the A-spot (four to five inches inside, on the front vagina wall), and the cervix.

Mastering clitoral stimulation takes some practice. But once you’ve excelled at it, you can make yourself or your partner climax in no time. Although fingers do the job the best, you can also introduce some tongue action. Bring in a vibrator for some external help. Experiment with different directions and speeds to determine what feels best.

For men, specific erogenous zones in the genital area include the head (or glans) of the penis, the frenulum (the underside skin where the shaft and the head meet), the foreskin (for uncircumcised men), the scrotum, the perineum (the skin between the penis and anus), and the prostate (reached inside the rectum).


While there’s plenty of discussion about the G-spot, not many people are familiar with the A-spot and the amount of pleasure it can bring. It’s present on the lower side of your vaginal opening. The region is filled with nerve endings. When having penetrative sex with your partner, focus your pressure on the vagina’s front wall. If you’re using a dildo, do the same as you slide in and out.

Bottom of feet

The bottom of your feet has pressure points that enhance arousal and increase blood flow. Some people are extremely ticklish in the area, so it may take you some time to find the right spot and pressure. Foot massages are also a great way to build the right mood. If you and your partner are into it, bring toes into the equation too. Gently suck their toes, and maintain eye contact to make the whole experience incredibly intimate.
