Erogenous Zones

Erogenous Zones

An erogenous zone is a particularly pleasurable and sensitive area of the body that increases arousal when touched or stimulated. Erogenous zones increase pleasure during both solo-sex and sexual activities with others.

Why do erogenous zones increase pleasure?

What are the typical erogenous zones?

Although erogenous zones might vary from person to person (especially on the intensity and kind of pleasure that someone gets from the stimulation of each erogenous zone), here is a list of some of the most common zones:

Erogenous zones create pleasurable sensations because they usually have greater numbers of nerve endings in those areas. Below is a list of some of the most sensitive areas on the body with the most nerves.


The glans (or head) of the penis contains 4,000 nerve endings, causing it to be highly sensitive to touch.


On either side of the prostate there are two bundles of nerves, called neurovascular bundles (nerves and blood vessels clustered together). There are almost as many nerve endings in the prostate as there are in the clitoris (the clitoris has 8,000 nerve endings). Thus, making the prostate is very sensitive to stimulation. You can access the prostate either.


Nerves on testicles are mostly found on the posterior side. The testicles do not have as many nerve endings as the penis but are still sensitive to touch and stimulation.


The vagina has a limited number of nerve endings, however, the G-spot is the most sensitive part of the vagina, it contains a bundle of nerves in the front wall of the vagina.


The clitoris is the most nerve-rich part of the vulva . The tip of the clitoris contains about 8,000 nerve endings, making it very sensitive to touch and stimulation.


The nipples and areolas have hundreds of nerve endings, making them extremely sensitive to touch and stimulation. Some people can even orgasm from nipple stimulation alone!

How can you stimulate erogenous zones?
