“Too often we underestimate the power of touch. Especially when it comes to creating arousal.—Leo Buscaglia


Erogenous zones… have you specifically talked about this aspect of sexual intimacy?

Let’s backtrack a little. What do you think of when you hear “erogenous zones”?

You may have thought of things like:

  • Touches that get you going
  • Parts that make you tingle
  • Touching
  • Playtime
  • Foreplay
  • Sensual places

“Erogenous” is defined as producing sexual excitement when stimulated: sexually sensitive.

So when talking about erogenous zones, those are the parts of the body that produce sexual excitement or arousal when stimulated.

It makes sense that knowledge of erogenous zones could do a lot for your sexual intimacy.

So let’s start with the obvious ones that you might already know, like the mouth, lips, and nipples.

But there are others too. In fact, the ears, neck, collarbone, palm of the hands and inner thigh are all erogenous zones you might not have considered.

If you think of it this way… if it has nerve endings, which your entire body does, it has the ability to be sexually stimulated.

In much the same way that you’ve expanded the definition of sexual intimacy to include all the activities that the two of you do to be sexually intimate, the areas of your body that can be aroused might be expanded too.

So it’s time for some exploration. It’s time to find out what’s sexually stimulating to you and your spouse.

It’s also time to get creative in how you stimulate those areas. Yes, you can use your hands or your mouth or your body, but how you use it matters too.

Think breathing on, nibbling, licking, caressing those areas in a soft or firm motion. Most of all, try, try again. Try unique touches at different times of the month, in different locations, and don’t be afraid to give feedback. If it’s working for you, then let your spouse know.
