The Female Erogenous Zones

Last update: 12 May, 2022

There are many female erogenous zones, including some that you may not know of.
An erogenous zone is any part of the body that has greater sensitivity and can provoke a sexual response when stimulated.
It’s important to go beyond the obvious activation areas and explore your partner’s entire body to give them the most pleasure.


Although the ears are considered to be very  erotic , they’re often overlooked which means that it’s an area worth exploring when you want to take things to the bedroom.
The ears are actually very sensitive to touch because they have many sensory receptors. Because of all the nerve endings, caressing them can help your partner climax or even increase the intensity of their orgasm.

  • Touch your partner’s ears gently. Use your tongue to trace the outer ear, and gently nibble the lobe.
  • Kiss the ear lobe gently, or hold it lightly in your mouth and massage it with your lips.
  • If your partner seems to be enjoying this, you can see it as permission to begin nibbling or sucking the lobe.

The lips are the most exposed erogenous zones and are full of nerve endings located very close to the surface of the skin (they have 100 times more than fingertips have!).
Even the slightest touch to our lips releases a happy surge of hormones which makes us feel good in our brain and affects our emotions, as well as our lower regions.
  • There’s a lot you can do to the lips. Even just kissing around the lips – not directly on them – can be stimulating.

There’s no such thing as a relationship that becomes too comfortable for a hot, fiery kiss, no matter how long a couple have been together. This will strengthen your relationship.

The neck

The back of the neck isn’t usually explored by many, but it’s a really delicate area.
Go ahead and let your partner know that you won’t miss a single inch of her body. Kiss her neck, and she’ll love it!



Most people go crazy for their partner’s breast, but the trick is to know what you are doing.
So, don’t grab them or squeeze them too much. Be gentle: your partner’s response to your movements will tell you what they like and what they don’t like.

The inner thighs

Use your fingers to trace the inner thigh, and your partner will be left wanting more. Use your imagination for the rest.
The inner thighs aren’t just for wrapping around your body while in  missionary position . Her inner thighs are more sensitive to gentle stroke, kisses and licks.

  • On a hot summer day, use an ice cube and run it up and down her thighs and let her explore (and enjoy) a new sensation.

The vagina

The vagina

Now this is an obvious one, right? You’re wrong. When it comes to the vagina, most people go crazy and start to rush things.
Take your time and play around. Be creative, but be gentle.
It’s the most erogenous area, but it’s also a bit fragile. Be gentle with it.

The lower belly

The area between the navel and the pelvis is a lesser known erogenous zone. The reason why this area can be so pleasurable is because you can actually stimulate a woman’s G-spot from it, right on the opposite side.
This area is not only very sensitive, but light stimulation promotes blood flow to other erogenous zones.
The lower part of the stomach is so close to the vagina and the clitoris that the idea of ​​moving further south is also particularly exciting for many women.
Use your hands to gently stroke the lower part of her belly, before applying a little more pressure.
You can see what she likes and incorporate it into regular foreplay.
To keep our sex lives exciting (especially with the same partner) we can all benefit from a bit of variety.
Use your own lips, teeth and tongue to lick, nibble and caress, experimenting with different amounts of pressure.
She will thank you for it you and both of you will enjoy it!
