The human body is a fascinating entity. It’s a huge source of immense sexual pleasure and satisfaction, a massive bundle of nerves waiting to be stimulated to send us over the edge of deep-rooted, electrifying desire.
Canadian scientists have found a way to eliminate the process altogether by identifying the most erogenous female body parts, based on touch, pressure, and vibration. The recent study is published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
To investigate, the team of Canadian researchers at the University of Montreal recruited 30 women between the ages of 18 and 35. Using light touch, pressure, and vibration, they studied each woman’s clitoris, labia minora, vaginal and anal margins, the lateral breast, areola, and nipple. They were then compared to neutral areas of the body, such as the neck, forearm, and abdomen.
The women were asked to lay under a bed sheet while they stimulated various outer parts of the female body with scientific instruments.
The researchers asked the participants to rank their sensitivity to light touch, pressure, and vibration stimulated by the instruments in each area. Stimulation was applied for 1.5 seconds. Then, the researchers waited for five seconds before they asked the women if they felt it.
The surprising findings confirmed our common knowledge and the scientists’ knowledge about the erogenous zones in the female anatomy.
1. The neck, forearm and vaginal margin, most sensitive
When it came to light touch, the neck, forearm, and vaginal margin were ranked the most sensitive area, and the areola was reported the least sensitive. The clitoris and nipple were the most sensitive when it came to pleasure, whereas the lateral breast and abdomen were the least.
2. Vibration FTW
The clitoris and nipple were found to be the most sensitive to vibration. The clitoris, expectedly, was the most sensitive to vibration compared to all the body parts.
Overall, the female genitals were found to be more sensitive to pressure and vibration compared to touch.
3. Feet are not the powerhouse of pleasure
Feet were once thought to have a sensual connection to the genitals due to the concentration of nerve endings in the sole and digits of the foot. However, in a 2013 study, neuroscientists have found it to be the least appealing part of the male and female anatomy when it comes to studying the link between sex and the brain.
So men, stop the toe sucking and licking, and use what scientists have confirmed. They have better equipped you to please your woman.
Might sound strange but for a lot of women, playing with their hair works wonders. That’s because the nerves on their scalp are known to heighten arousal. Precisely why hair-play is so important during sex – from grabbing hair to pulling them a little, it’s all amazing!
It helps release oxytocin, a stress hormone that provides a sense of calm while enhancing sexual pleasure.
5. Behind the knee
One of the most-ignored sexual hot spots in the female body? Hint: It’s also a place you might feel really ticklish. The skin behind the knees is an area you might want to focus on, either by kissing or gently massaging with an oil or lotion.
Some women find this area especially exciting and pleasurable when showered with gentle touch or caresses. And don’t forget the tops of the knees, too. The knees are a major erogenous zone—all around the kneecap.
6. Antecubital Fossa
That’s the technical name for the elbow crease, an area where blood vessels are very close to the surface of her skin, making it super sensitive. This is also a place where the nerves become a ganglion, a cluster of nerve cells.
You can 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.
