Erogenous Zones: We’ve Got the Map if You’ve Got the Time

When youíre all hot-and-bothered and in the do-me-now phase of a relationship, itís easy to skip foreplay and go straight to the main event. You donít need time to get turned on and sex feels sensual enough because youíre so into the person youíre into.

Why bother touching anything else but each other?

Hereís why: Touch can make intense, delicious sex even more intense and delicious.

Your skin is the largest sensory organ you have with many erogenous zones to make you melt. Explore them with someone (or on your own) and see if it makes sex more intimate and exciting.

Everybody reacts to erogenous zones differently, so try a lot of them. Also, menís zones may differ from womenís zones. Here are some interesting ways to touch them. And here are a few decadent, sensual textures you can fool around with when youíre in the mood to play:

  • Faux fur or feathers
  • Silk or satin
  • Velvet
  • Warm water
  • Ice
  • Lotions and oils (use as is or gently warmed)
  • Liquid latex
  • Leather
  • Smooth metal, glass, or polished wood (yes, really)

As usual, make sure you have birth control covered. With so much emphasis on pleasure, things could get explosive, if you know what we mean.

Using your hands to touch and massage works just as well ... liquid latex sounds frightening.

Different strokes for different folks. The key thing is to be considerate of your partners needs.
