¿Qué son las zonas de excitación sexual? 7 puntos para explorar el placer

Although the sex industry has been built around the genitals, there is a whole world of pleasure distributed throughout the body, if you are willing to explore it. If you've ever wondered what erogenous zones are? The answer is that they are erogenous points, which when stimulated trigger a sexual response.

You should already know the obvious ones, such as the clitoris, anus and mouth. But there are many other points that can be pleasurable. The list can be very long, and here we are going to introduce you to seven.

1. Back

Desde la base del cuello hasta el hueso sacro, muy al sur, la espalda está repleta de terminaciones nerviosas que pueden ser estimuladas con masajes, cambios de temperatura y caricias.

2. Ears

Los lóbulos de la orejas pueden ser acariciados para la excitación, y se han reportado casos en los que algunas personas han experimentado orgasmos sólo con tocar esta parte del cuerpo. Masajear los lóbulos activa una respuesta en el cerebro similar a la que ocurre cuando se tocan los genitales, según un estudio.

3. Hands

Chuparse los dedos puede ser una acción tremendamente erótica para algunas personas, ya que las manos son también zonas erógenas. Incluyen los dedos, y especialmente la muñeca, que es una de las zonas de excitación femenina más inesperadas.

4. Feet

El neurocientífico Vilayanur Ramachandran sugiere que la parte del cerebro que procesa la sensación que la gente obtiene de acariciar los pies está junto a la zona que percibe la estimulación genital, lo que explicaría el por qué esta zona es tan erógena para algunas.

5. Nipples

El pecho es un área altamente sensible para las mujeres y esa sensibilidad varía de acuerdo a su ciclo menstrual, aumentando en los días cercanos a la menstruación.

6. Legs

The inner thighs and the back of the knees are places that can generate arousal to touch because they are areas that are not commonly touched. It is for this very reason that being touched on the arm, for example, does not have the same value as more private areas.

7. Other Popular Erogenous Zones

The neck, armpits, navel area, scalp and inner arms are some of the spots where people can experience pleasure. They should just take the time to see what works for each one.

Remember that recognizing what gives your body pleasure is part of your well-being. Stroking and masturbating has multiple health benefits, including reducing stress and anxiety. Orgasm can help relieve menstrual cramps, and exploring your body builds confidence and strengthens your relationship with yourself and your self-esteem.

If you share this experience of exploration with another person, it strengthens the couple's relationship, complicity and intimacy. In addition, this pleasure seeking can be an option to penetrative sex, which avoids the transmission of several sexually transmitted infections.
