The idea of experiencing erotic feelings is closely associated with the genitalia. However, people experience erotic sensations on parts of their bodies located quite a distance from their genitalia. For this reason, you may wonder how many erogenous zones there actually are. Think of moments when a simple touch or breath against your skin made your senses tingle.

Usually, the genitalia, lips, and nipples experience more erotic sensations because of their particular structure. The anatomy of these regions includes specialized skin and more nerves, which increases the perception in the areas.

However, other basic erogenous zones, such as the neck, have normal skin and nerve supply, which means that while the erotic sensations occur, they need a different touch. Another exciting way to look at it would be to factor in the power of the mind and sexual feelings. Our brains are essential for arousal and help erogenous zones on our bodies experience tactile erotic sensations.

Mental distress can also reduce one’s ability to experience sexual stimulation even after experiencing touch on their erogenous zones. It’s also more likely to experience sexual excitement from a person one is sexually attracted to than to person one isn’t attracted to.

Female Erogenous Zones

Women experience sexual arousal differently from men. First, the female body has more erogenous zones than the male. For most women, the gradual arousal of these areas, especially during foreplay, increases the chances of having better sex. Unfortunately, short foreplay sessions are a reality for many women, which often negatively affects arousal. The genitalia, breasts, buttocks, and lips on women are common targets for sexual stimulation. However, it’s possible to improve the experience through touch of erogenous zones of a female such as the thighs, neck, ears, and even feet.

But which is the most sexually sensitive part of a female’s body? The clitoris holds the trophy. In countless studies, the majority of women have mentioned the clitoris as the main source of orgasms. This is not to say that only the clitoris leads to orgasms, but perhaps, the clitoris causes orgasms because it’s a powerful pleasure point for women. The consequence of full arousal is what we call the orgasm. Some women also find sexual satisfaction through masturbation. It’s also possible to combine masturbation and sex with a partner. However, some women can only reach orgasm with their sexual partner(s).

It’s also important to look into myths about the female sexual experience. More often than not, the media, film, and pornography display penetration as the sole cause of female orgasms. Unfortunately, this false information has negative implications in many sex lives. It’s also worth noting that a woman’s sexual experience is also significantly influenced by their mental and emotional state. A sense of worth and openness about sexual needs is an essential aspect of healthy sex life. For people with sexual partners, the lack of communication and understanding can degenerate sex.

Social issues also affect mental health and consequently affect sexual health. The taboos and negative perspectives on the female body significantly hinder sexual exploration of female erogenous zones. Being able to appreciate and enjoy one’s body is essential to enjoying sex.

Male Erogenous Zones

Just like women, men also have male erogenous zones. These are parts of their bodies that experience sexual excitement either due to touching, kissing, licking, or rubbing. The standard erogenous zones for men as often peddled in general information around us include the penis, the buttocks and anus, ear, the lower abdomen, and nipples. However, other areas can be stimulating. Exciting some of these erogenous zones for males can have more powerful and intimate arousal.

Areas such as the ears can be erogenous in males through light nibbles and sucking, especially on the earlobes. Whispering into the ears can also arouse men; naturally, words have meanings, and if the meaning is sexually arousing, talking is hugely beneficial during sex. This also means that the brain plays a critical role in sexual activity, often influencing how we translate sexual cues.

Caresses and kisses, especially on the neck, nipples, and thighs, can also spice up the fun. Other parts, such as the anus, the scrotum, and the perineum, are also highly sexually sensitive. Usually, these areas require light touching and licking and are powerfully stimulating for men.

What everyone should remember is that there’s no defined manual for sexual pleasure, and it’s best to communicate with a sexual partner. Some men, for instance, experience no sexual arousal from their nipples. What many can agree on is that the most erogenous zone of a man is the penis. This would explain why many men experience orgasms from self-pleasure or sex with partners that involve the penis. The activities around the penis, which may include masturbation, penetration, and oral sex, can give a man orgasm.

However, mental and reproductive problems can interfere with a man’s ability to experience sexual arousal. Just as in women, being mentally present and having desires are essential for sex. This means that improving mental health can invigorate a person’s sex life. However, many studies suggest that men have an easier time experiencing an orgasm. This may be attributed to a better understanding of male erogenous zones, general acceptance, and positive view of male orgasms and the differences between male and female orgasms.



Both men and women have erogenous zones that are commonly peddled in the media and through cultural norms. The genitalia, buttocks, lips, and anus are constant in both sexes. However, other parts may vary in arousal due to biological and psychological factors. Sometimes, even the nature of sex can affect how sexually a stimulating touch on some parts of the body can be.

Masturbation can be a crucial part of every person’s sexual journey. Many people can orgasm through masturbation, but not all can or even masturbate. What’s interesting is that the touch and fantasies explored during masturbation are mostly different from those in sex with a partner. This could suggest that when trying to explore sex in different ways, it’s perhaps better not to copy-paste the methods.

Exploration and learning are some of the best ways to improve sexual experiences with others. Conversations and openness are also essential for people to open up about their erogenous zones and also teach their partner(s) to please them.

The mind also plays a critical role in eroticism. Anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem can affect a person’s ability to enjoy sex. Distractions and fatigue also affect sex. A deeper understanding of sex and a general acceptance of sex can also help more people enjoy sexual stimulation from erogenous zones.

When it comes to sexual pleasure and fulfillment, the clitoris is undoubtedly a major deal. In fact, it’s actually the only organ in the entire human anatomy known to exist solely for the purposes of sexual stimulation. It also has a greater concentration of nerve endings than anywhere else in the male or female body. Essentially, there’s no area of greater importance for the purposes of enjoying sex, and yet it remains a mysterious and often unexplored part of the body for a great number of people.

The Clitoris: What You Should Know About This Mysterious Organ

This clitoris is a complex thing, much more intricate than it’s often thought of being. Though it’s only 3 or 4 centimeters, or possibly up to 7 centimeters when erect, there are thousands of cell structures working to make it what it is. Only a small portion of it is actually visible from the outside, while the majority of its parts are actually internal.

External Parts:

  •     Clitoral Hood
  •     Glans Clitoris

Internal Parts:

  • Body
  • Crura
  • Bulbs
  • Root

Clitoris structure

On the very outside is a flap of skin known as the clitoral hood, which covers and mostly surrounds the glands. Though technically considered a part of the labia, it’s still associated with clitoral anatomy and also pretty important as the part that most people initially see. The glands below it, known as the glans clitoris, are packed with a dense cluster of nerve endings.

The internal parts of the clitoris are where you’ll find most of its erectile structures, meaning the parts that become engorged with blood when you’re aroused. At the very center is the body, which splits into two branch-like structures on either side called the crura. Behind the body, just between the vaginal wall and the labia, are the bulbs. At the very base is the root, which is where all the nerves of the clitoris come together, making it an incredibly sensitive place.

Clitoris Research & The G Spot

As you may know, the issue of the female orgasm remains mysterious, to say the least. According to biologists like Elizabeth Lloyd, no one really knows what really causes them or why it’s easier for some to experience than others. What we’re left with is the experiences of women themselves, along with a little survey data from the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy to gain perspective. It’s no surprise that a majority of cis-gendered women, about 36%, said that clitoral stimulation is necessary for them to experience orgasm. Another 36% reported they could orgasm with vaginal penetration alone, but the experience was less pleasurable. Only 18% of women reported that they could orgasm from penetration exclusively.

More enigmatic than even the female orgasm is the infamous G-spot. Though it’s generally accepted to exist, there is still no firm consensus as to its actual location. The most common assumption is that it’s located on the anterior wall about 5-8 centimeters into the vagina, somewhere in the tissue surrounding the urethra. Also controversial is how pleasurable the G-spot actually is. According to polls, the issue is about half and half. Some love G-spot stimulation, while others find it simply uncomfortable.

Can You Squirt From Clitoral Stimulation?

According to the latest statistics, about 10% of people with vaginas can squirt from having contact with their clitoris alone. It’s actually much more likely to happen when applying pressure to the G-spot, but not impossible otherwise. The best and only way to find out is to experience it for yourself.

How To Stimulate The Clitoris For Maximum Pleasure

It’s an incredibly important fact that not everyone likes their clitoris to be touched the same way. What feels amazing to some may be irritating or uncomfortable to others. If one thing isn’t working out for you. you should probably try a different motion or technique. There are several ways you can go about it, so don’t be afraid to experiment a little to find what works best.

Above all, the thing most vagina havers prefer is Rhythm. 75% say they prefer a constant and repetitive motion like the beat of a song with light to medium pressure applied. Some may prefer being touched directly on their clitoris, but for others, this might be overstimulating and unpleasant. In fact, a significant amount enjoys being stimulated on the skin around the clitoris or an occasional touch to it without any pressure. It’s even possible to prefer no contact with the clitoris whatsoever.

Paths Of Motion

In addition to pressure and the area it’s applied, the path you take to apply the pressure can make all the difference. Tracing different patterns on and around the clitoris is a great place to start discovering what feels right.

Types Of Motions You Should Try:

  • Up & Down
  • Side to side
  • Circular
  • Pulsating
  • Flicking
  • Wide ovals
  • Long ovals
  • Diagonal
  • Squeezing
  • Pulling
  • Pushing/pressing

Trying these in different combinations of intensity and in different places will give you a range of sensations, some of which are likely to cause that delightfully ecstatic response you’re searching for. It’s possible to love any, all, or none of them. As is usual with sexual gratification, the possibilities are numerous and your personal favorites are bound to take some exploring to find.

Making The Most Of Clitoral Excitement

What Is Squirting?

While conversations around the female body and sex have grown over time, there are still several questions about female ejaculation and female squirting, and if all women experience this. In this post, we answer, “What is female squirt?”

During the peak of sexual activity, females may release a clear fluid from the vulva. This fluid is usually a mixture of uric acid and creatinine that is postulated to come from the Skene’s glands. These glands are the female equivalent of the male prostate and are responsible for the production of fluid that lubricates the urethral opening.

Sometimes, squirt is confused with pee. It’s not uncommon for women to pee during sex, especially after stimulation of the clitoris and g-spot. However, pee isn’t squirting. Peeing may happen due to the relaxation of muscles that control bladder movements.

What Causes Squirting?

If you’ve never experienced squirting or seen anyone squirt, you may have questions such as “Why do women squirt? “What makes a woman squirt? or “Is squirting real?”

First, squirting is real. Many women squirt due to stimulation on the g-spot, which is about 3-5 cm into the vagina. The area feels slightly more textured than the surrounding vaginal walls. However, instead of a single spot, the g-spot is an area. Due to its proximity to other regions inside the vagina, the stimulation on one part causes general stimulation of the Skene’s glands, hence the squirting.

While most people with vulvas can squirt, it’s not mandatory. It’s best to experiment with different sexual positions and masturbation to squirt.

What Does Squirting Feel Like?

For many women, female squirting may come with an urge to urinate. You may have been withholding squirt because of the intense peeing sensation. However, it’s possible to squirt and pee. Accepting the urge and letting go allows squirting to happen.

It feels relieving and requires you to let go of the tension in your vagina to release the built-up pressure. However, squirting isn’t a clitoral orgasm. If you’re still learning about your body, it may be slightly embarrassing, but it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.

Also, the amount of squirting varies for all women.

How to Make a Woman Squirt

The best way to achieve squirt sex is to stimulate a woman’s g-spot, primarily through fingering. However, arousal before penetration, whether with fingers or a toy, can help with vagina squirting. Let the pressure increase in preparation for the big moment.

Make a beckoning motion with your finger either slowly or quickly, depending on what the woman wants to intense stimulation. It may also help to stimulate the clitoris simultaneously to help with squirting. Using sex toys can also help create intense vibrations.

Sex Positions to Help You Squirt

Besides masturbation, sex can also help you squirt. The g-spot is only a few centimeters into the vagina. Therefore, you may only need 2-3 inches of penetration, accompanied by the necessary pressure on the g-spot.

Try the following positions:

  • The g-spot position
  • The launch-pad positions
  • Downstroke position
  • Jockey position

How to squirt


Squirting during sex provides excellent relief and can improve your sex life. Try to relax and enjoy overall stimulation before attempting to stimulate the g-spot. Most importantly, don’t focus too much on the squirting, instead, enjoy the sexual experience and let it happen on its own.

What Is a Bullet Vibrator?

Whether you are new or experienced with sex toys, bullet vibrators are a staple part of a pleasure collection. They are affordable, easy to use, and also travel well. They are enjoyed alone and with a partner. These generally small, bullet-shaped, and sometimes lipstick shaped devices provide intense point stimulation inside the vagina, on the clitoris, and other erogenous zones such as the perineum. A bullet vibrator is also a great place to start if you’re new to masturbation or trying to improve your solo play experiences. Bullet toys are also excellent for enhancing oral sex.

Types of Bullet Vibrators

There are several aspects to consider if you’re into a bullet vibe and are looking to find the right kind of bullet vibrator. A mini bullet vibrator is a great place to start. You will find a stainless steel vibrator to be durable, smooth, and discreet. Other quality bullets are made of medical-grade silicone.

You can also consider a wireless bullet vibrator that frees your hands for other activities. Remote bullet vibrators are especially great for couples because one partner can control the vibrations from a different location. If you’re in the mood for all-round stimulation, try bullet egg vibrators. You can use them around the vulva, instead of inserting them into the vagina. They’re especially great for teasing the nipples and other parts of the genitalia besides the clitoris.

A double bullet vibrator is great for couples looking to spice things up. Each partner can enjoy intense stimulation from the bullet vibrators at the same time, and control the speed and have fun together. Combine any of these vibrators with a powerful anal bullet vibrator for more stimulation and intense orgasms. When buying vibrators, be sure to confirm if they are battery-charged or rechargeable by USB, and choose the one that suits you best.

How To Use a Vibrating Bullet

If it’s your first time, you may often wonder, “How does a bullet vibrator work?” Bullet vibrators are petite and easy to use. After taking the time to understand how to switch on and control the vibrations, get yourself into the mood. Some music, erotica, and even kissing and caressing can get you into the right vibe. During masturbating, place the bullet vibrator on your nipples, inner thighs, the vulva and perineum, and finally, the clitoris for vulva havers.

You can also use the vibrator to stimulate your partner during oral sex. Insert the vibrator into the vagina while you focus on your partner’s clitoris. Use care when using the bullet vibrator internally. If you’re in the mood for extra stimulation, try an anal bullet vibrator. What’s more, is that you can combine it with a g-spot stimulator for explosive orgasms. But are bullet vibrators waterproof? Yes! There are plenty of waterproof ones you can bring to the bathtub and shower.

In case you’re wondering how to clean a bullet vibrator, some water and antibacterial soap will work. Be sure to airdry the toy and store it safely after cleaning. There are also select toy cleaning products in the market.

Bullet vibrators are excellent for intense orgasms, alone or with a partner. They’re also discreet and great choice for intimate play.

🍌Whether size matters or not when it comes to sex has been a big debate. However, the G-Spot has proven pretty effectively that vulva-havers’ orgasms don’t really depend on size, but the knowledge of how to use what you have. No matter how big or small, there are positions that will improve the experience for both parties.

What if he has less to work with? Missionary is a good option, allowing for deeper penetration. Placing pillows under the vulva-haver’s hips can heighten the experience even more.

What if he’s a bit too much? Spooning and cowgirl are going to be your friends here. The curvature of spooning limits how deep a partner can go, while cowgirl lets the vulva-haver control how deep and fast penetration is.

Size doesn’t matter. Like they say, “It isn’t about the size of the boat, it’s about the motion of the ocean.” What is important is choosing a good position that works with what you have, not against it.

Besides, penetration isn’t the end-all, be-all of sex. People tend to think of using hands and mouths as the build-up to the “main act” when these can really be just as much fun. Also, don’t underestimate how much sex toys can add to the experience. You don’t have to limit your partners based on size. Big or small, you can still have a good time.

Take good care of your body: exercise regularly, eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, limit alcohol, quit smoking, maintain good dental hygiene, protect your skin from the sun, get enough sleep, consider taking vitamin supplements.

Continue to enjoy life: stay socially active, engage in a new hobby, start learning new skills, try a new sport.

Find comfort in your style: forget the rules and wear clothes that you like and find comfy, wear your hair and makeup the way you like it–focus on your best features.

Know yourself, be yourself, and love yourself: become your own best friend and admirer, listen to the voice of your desires, not your inner critic. Feel free to talk about your fears related to aging with a specialist who will help you approach getting older with confidence.

❗️Cosmetics surgery is not for everyone, and, most importantly, it doesn’t really define “beauty”. Feeling comfortable within yourself does.

Ready for a perfectly refreshing, sex-boosting treat?

Studies suggest that watermelon may work as a natural Viagra. Here’s how:
🍉 Watermelon is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that helps improve blood flow.
🍉 L-citrulline supports the body in optimizing blood flow when it converts to L-arginine and then to nitric oxide.
🍉 Nitric oxide is involved in vasodilation (dilation of the blood vessels). Low levels of nitric oxide are associated with mental and physical fatigue and sexual dysfunction.
🍉 Similarly to Viagra, L-citrulline increases blood flow to the sexual organs but without any negative side effects.

A delicious aphrodisiac treat and a vibrating toy are the perfect duo to spice up your bedroom! Have fun! 😈

Not that you ever need reasons to have a good f*ck, but here they are, backed by science:

🔥 During sex, you can burn up to 200 calories per about an hour (get on top to burn more!).
🔥 Relaxation hormones released after sex improve sleep.
🔥 Sex lowers stress levels and helps you handle stress better.
🔥 Regular sex lowers the chances to die from heart disease.
🔥 Having sex regularly can reduce the risk of prostate cancer and breast cancer.
🔥 Sex boosts the levels of antibodies that protect you against viruses.
🔥 Endorphins released during orgasm relieve headaches.
🔥 Penis-havers who have sex frequently and vulva-owners who orgasm often live longer.
🔥 Sex, and especially post-sex cuddles, build strong intimate bonds.
🔥 Married couples having regular sex tend to feel happier in relationships.
🔥 Sexual activity increases neurogenesis, and so improves mental function.
🔥 Intimacy boosts blood circulation that benefits your skin and appearance.
🔥 The more you have sex, the more you want it!

You’d think there’s more time than ever to enjoy sex for couples under lockdown, but the statistics in the US show 50% of partners stuck inside together 24/7 are actually too stressed to have sex.

Stress is a huge libido killer. Ironically, it’s sex that can help fight it. Remember that things will once be okay again. Meanwhile, don’t let the spark fade in your relationship: plan sex, watch erotic movies together, incorporate sex toys into your bedroom.

Of course, you don’t need a partner to achieve a mind-blowing orgasm, if you’re quarantined alone. Get some new erotic toys and enjoy yourself!

Aging makes us feel uncomfortable, and kind of intimidated. Is it about “fading beauty” or mortality? While wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process showing that your whole body is changing, that’s not what defines attractiveness and sexiness (Wanna check? Go on Tinder and see how many people want you).

❤️ According to Erikson’s study, human life doesn’t stop developing at 20, it is divided into eight stages of physiological development. Once successfully completed, each of the stages results in your personal evolution and growth. This means that each new day, year, and decade is shaping you into a different, stronger, better self.

Age is a state of mind. Feeling good about ourselves is what really makes us feel and look attractive.
