15 Male Erogenous Zones
It’s no secret that women have specific pleasure points on their bodies. However, you might be surprised to know that the male body also has particular erogenous zones.
These range from the mouth and lips, through the neck, crotch, to the scrotum and, of course, the penis; and that’s without forgetting the G-spot in men.
Get closer to these male erogenous zones, those amazing places of pleasure that you might be missing.
What are erogenous zones?
The skin is generally quite sensitive to external stimuli, both in terms of changes in temperature, textures, and other sensations. However, there are points where more nerve endings are concentrated.
In particular, the erogenous zones are those that produce sensations of pleasure when stimulated for sexual purposes. This is due not only to their sensitivity, but other factors, of a very diverse nature, both personal and cultural, may intervene.
Since the ways to reach orgasm can be diverse, i’is also important to stimulate these erogenous zones, in order to contribute to the greatest pleasure for the couple.
In the case of men, enjoyment has traditionally been associated with the penis, either by practicing penetration or through oral sex. However, today it’s known that it’s possible to seek and find pleasure elsewhere.
What are the male erogenous zones?
In some cases, the erogenous zones of the man can coincide with those of the woman; but in others not, since there are parts that are definitely different. Let’s take a look.
Many men like their ears being touched. This is often an area that we forget about that can be used to calm us or excite us.
- Simply put your thumb and pointer finger on the area where the ear lobe meets the tissue close to their face.
- Then, pull it down slowly and let your fingers slide back up to start again.
- Whisper sexy words in his ear and use it to turn him on.
You’ll definitely get a satisfactory result when you gently use your fingers, lips, or teeth.

The thing with kisses is that you should never give them just to do it, but that you should savor every moment. It’s the passion transmitted that excites him and puts him in the mood for a night of wild sex. And if you want more pleasure, brush the tip of your tongue with his.
4. Nape and neck
Using a feather, fingers or any gentle touch on the neck and collarbone area can increase his arousal.
- This is about stimulating two areas at once such as lightly rubbing his neck or nibbling on an earlobe while also sliding your hands down south
- Get creative about the combination, some men love it when you gently run your nails just below the hairline.
4. Lower abdomen
Start at his belly button and move your hands down. The area of the abdomen between the belly button and the pelvis area is a fun place to entice. As the blood flows from the pelvis and the sexual tension accumulates, it’s a great place to stimulate.
Touching his genitals and then moving to other areas of his body and then going back to the genitals will create sexual tension throughout his entire body. Remember that foreplay is what makes sex an adventure.

5. Inner thighs
Another of the man’s erogenous zones is the muscles of the inner thigh, in the so-called femoral trigone. Think of these muscles as “gift wrapping.” Playing in this area can put him in a sexy mood.
- Slowly move your finger pads up and down the inner part of their thighs.
- Follow the contour of the thigh, slowly moving your index and middle finger up and down this erogenous point.
- Give this area a few soft taps before pressing the palm of your hand into the upper part of the thigh; then, start again with your fingers.
Although men may not have as sensitive of breasts as they are in women, some feel a great deal of pleasure when their nipples are touched or even sucked. You can put an ice cube in your mouth; he’s sure to feel a pleasurable surprise!
The back is a great erogenous zone, as wide as it is sensitive. Caress him here gently, letting your hands run from shoulder height to his waist.
Also, as part of the preliminaries, you can give him a massage, so that he relaxes and de-stresses. Both of you will enjoy sex more.
8. The sacrum
The sacrum is that small triangle at the end of the spinal cord, right above the butt. Try to stroke it or sun your fingers or nails over it. Do it by surprise and they will appreciate your spontaneity.
The buttocks are also quite sensitive to stimulation. Stroke him, if he likes it; you can also give him a playful spanking, pinch him, and do other mischief here.
When he comes back tired from work, you will help him relax a lot by taking off his shoes and giving him a foot massage. These have many nerve endings, so it can be exciting to stimulate them. Dare to caress them and even kiss them!
The penis is definitely the most sensitive erogenous zone in men. However, there isn’t just one, but four places you can stimulate. However, every one of these areas needs a different type of stimulation to get the best from them:
- The head responds best to friction, suction, and heat.
- The shaft, especially the bottom side, reacts best to stroking and friction.
- The raphe is found just below the head on the bottom part. It’s incredibly sensitive for men and can be extremely exciting for him.
- The base is the least sensitive part of the penis and this is why it requires a little pressure.
Many women have the wrong idea that the testicles are erogenous zones for men. But the truth is that it isn’t the testicles, but the surrounding tissues.
In fact, if you focus on the testicles, it can be pretty painful for him. This means that it is crucial to move around this zone gently. For the greatest pleasure, go for the line that runs through the center.

13. The perineum
The perineum is the area between the scrotum and the anal opening, which is at the opposite end of your prostate. This means that when you massage it gently, you can indirectly stimulate their G spot.
However, be careful, your man might not want to get there so proceed slowly and analyze his reaction.
14. The male G spot
This is a gland inside the body located behind the testicles that can make their orgasm much more powerful when it is stimulated.
However, despite being one of the erogenous zones of man, because it’s inside, it’s not easy to reach. According to a 2018 study, there are several ways to stimulate it. The most effective is inserting a finger through the anal opening.
Perhaps not many would agree with this form of stimulation, so you should talk to him beforehand to see if he accepts. And if he does, take the appropriate measures, which include lubrication and hygiene.
15. The mind
Believe it or not, the brain and mind are also powerful erogenous zones in men. Therefore, you shouldn’t leave them aside when having a sexual encounter.
Whisper something sexy or naughty in his ear. This will stimulate him both physically and mentally and help turn up the temperature in bed. Talk, tell him how much you like him, and tell him your fantasies. And you’ll see what happens!
