We all know about the main pleasure zones, the areas where sexual attention is often given and received. But did you know that there are a host of other areas on the body that can be used to excite and delight? Knowing just how to touch your lover can heighten the intensity of your lovemaking and exploring these areas together can liven up your love life more than you might expect.
The primary erogenous zones, just to keep our terminology clear, are the mouth, breasts and genitals. These are the ones we’re all familiar with, but focusing only on these areas can let the action go a bit stale. The worst thing that can happen in an otherwise loving relationship is to let the sexual play fall into a routine. So what are the other areas of the body that get the blood rushing and the juices flowing?
The secondary erogenous zones are a bit less obvious, but they still fall into the category of the classically sexy. Spending a bit of time in these areas is sure to put your lover (or yourself) in the mood. And if there is enough build-up, they may even be enough to take them over the top. They include:
- Nape of the neck
- Inside of the thigh
- Base of the spine
- Space where the buttock meets the top of the thigh
That’s not all though. There’s a third layer of pleasure zones in the body, ones that you might not expect without a bit of inside knowledge. The tertiary erogenous zones are:
- Outside surface of the little finger
- Centre of the palm
- Ear canal
- Sole of the foot
- Big toe
- Back of the knee
These are the mains ones, but there are a few others that bear mention. The scalp and the inside of the elbow are brought alive to the touch. The fingers are especially sensitive and it’s an almost taboo delight to give loving attention to the underarm, an area full of pheromones and amazingly sensitive.
Avoid getting into a pattern. Let the attention flow over the body, a touch here, a deliciously sensual slide of a tongue there and you can find the pleasure building to new heights. What’s more, giving sensual and erotic attention to your partner’s whole body is one of the ways to really show your love. Take your time and explore, letting each moment of intimacy be a step on the journey of sensual connection. And receiving this kind of attention from someone who really knows your body and wants to make you feel alive is one of the most exciting experiences we can have.
Real intimacy is all about sharing, feeling and opening up. Allowing yourself to be present with your lover in new and exciting ways every time you connect. Exploring all of their delicious hidden pleasure zones (and exploring yours in return) is a beautiful and fun way to deepen the connection, intensify the pleasure you share and keep things fresh.
Happy explorations and beautiful sensual moments!
