Go where no man has gone before. “When you touch her in places you normally brush over, she’ll feel more wanted,” says Yvonne K. Fulbright, Ph.D., author of The Better Sex Guide to Extraordinary Lovemaking. “This turns her on and also strengthens your bond.” See, every woman has a unique set of erogenous zones beyond the obvious ones. They’re determined by various concentrations of nerve endings, as well as by such psychological factors as her body confidence and how close she feels to you. We asked our experts to draw us a map of some likely hot zones. By visiting these spots first, you’ll excite her body and her mind.
1. Lick Her Antecubital Fossa
That’s the technical name for her elbow crease, an area where blood vessels are very close to the surface of her skin, making it supersensitive. “This is also a place where the nerves become a ganglion, a cluster of nerve cells,” says Stella Resnick, Ph.D., author of The Heart of Desire: Keys to the Pleasures of Love.
Do it: Hold her hand and slowly straighten her arm. Then gently kiss along the crease on the inside of her elbow. Next, flutter your tongue across her skin and breathe warm air onto the spot.
2. Caress Her Stomach
Think of her belly as a double-points zone. That’s not only because many women feel self-conscious about their abs but also because the upper part houses her solar plexus, a powerful nerve cluster, says Resnick.
Do it: Start just below her breasts and move toward her belly button, caressing and kissing her softly. “By soothing her mentally and relaxing her abs, you’ll help increase blood flow to her clitoral complex, exciting her at the prospect of being touched there later,” Resnick says.
3. Tickle Her Thighs
Many guys rush over the thighs so they can zero in on what’s in between them. Slow down. “You’re so close to her playground but still far away, which will drive her up the wall,” says Fulbright.
Do it: First, tease her with your fingers: Move up her leg, but pull away at the last minute or just graze her mons with your fingertips. Repeat with your tongue, going close enough for her to feel your breath.
4. Massage Her Hands
“The palm has about 40,000 nerve endings,” says Fulbright. “Stimulating them all will make her whole body feel electric.” Most people also have light hair between the base of their fingers and the knuckles above, making that area extra sensitive.
Do it: Interlock your fingers with hers, and then use your thumb to massage her palm and the base of her fingers in a circular motion. It’s intimate, but you can still do it in public, which gives it more erotic power.
5. Nuzzle Her Knees
The backs of her knees harbor nerve receptors known as Pacinian corpuscles; these are especially sensitive to pressure, says Fulbright. Plus, the skin here is extremely ticklish.
Do it: Start at her ankles and gently run your fingertips up the backs of her calves until you reach the soft area behind her knees. Tickle there with your fingertips or tongue, avoiding the bonier, less sensitive parts on the sides.
