What is the largest sexual organ? The skin! This is why many different locations on the body can feel wonderful to have touched. Touching can be done with fingers, the lips or tongue, or sometimes with sexual props. Partners can explore sensual and exciting ways to explore the body together if that feels right for them. The word “sensual” includes all the physical senses – touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. To heighten sexual pleasure, people may want to try arousing each of these senses.
An erogenous zone is an area of the body that is sensitive to touch and results in sexual arousal when stimulated. Each person reacts differently to touch. For example, some people love having their feet massaged; others get goosebumps when someone gently nibbles or kisses their earlobes. Discovering where a partner’s erogenous zones are can be part of the fun!
