An erogenous zone is a part of the body that produces sexual feelings upon stimulation or touch.
Stimulating erogenous zones is a great way to intensify satisfaction during sexual intercourse and build excitement.
Men and women alike have their erogenous zones.
This post aims to change that. Scroll down to see them all.
11 erogenous zones for males
While everyone has their erogenous zones, some parts of the body are known as great targets for sexual stimulation. The whole body is sensitive to sexual touching, but some areas are erogenous hotspots (1).
Here are the top 11 erogenous zones for males that you should focus on before or during your next sexual intercourse.
The scalp is an erogenous zone because it’s full of nerve endings. For that reason, even casual caressing of the scalp can send tingles through a man’s body.
There are several things to do in order to stimulate this erogenous zone. Running fingers gently over a man’s scalp is one way to activate this erogenous hotspot. Scalp massage and gentle hair tugging are also great options.
If a man is sensitive about his hair, it’s useful to try caressing behind the neck or ear instead.
Ears are a great erogenous zone for men and women alike. The skin on the ears, especially earlobes, is thin and sensitive, which is why it’s easy to stimulate. At the same time, hundreds of sensory receptors are inside, and you can stimulate them as well.
Since ears are such a convenient spot, you shouldn’t ignore them. Things you can do include kissing, licking, and nibbling earlobes.
Whispering softly into a partner’s ears is also another option. For example, you can whisper what you’d like to do to him or how he makes you feel. Whisper in his right ear because it’s connected to the part of the brain that controls happiness (2).

In all honesty, lips are an erogenous zone for everyone, but they’re so important we can’t overlook them. The lips are the most exposed erogenous zone. They’re soft and tender, and a touch or kiss can build the excitement and desire for sexual pleasure.
Instead of going straight for a kiss, you may want to trace their lips with your tongue or even fingertips. You can also opt for a gentle kiss, super passionate kiss, or nibble on their bottom lip. There are plenty of options to have some fun with this erogenous zone.
The glans, also known as the glans penis, is the rounded head or tip of the penis. Over 4000 nerve endings in this area make the glans the most sensitive part of the penis. That’s exactly why the glans is such a powerful erogenous zone.
How to stimulate it? Well, there are plenty of options. You can gently rub or caress it with your hands or rub wet lips over the fleshy head. You can also stimulate the glans with the tip of your tongue, circle around the rim, and take it in your mouth.
5. Inner thigh
If you’re looking for a spot that will produce arousal in men almost instantly, the answer is easy – the inner thigh. Focusing on this erogenous zone is particularly useful when you want to delay an orgasm.
Instead of stimulating the penis only, pay attention to the inner thigh for a while. He will be aroused, but not enough to reach an orgasm. Basically, the inner thigh is a great erogenous zone to maintain arousal but prolong the whole sexual encounter.
The frenulum is the point where the foreskin meets the underside of the penis. You can easily recognize the frenulum because it looks like a “v” below the head of the penis. Even circumcised men have it, or at least a part of it. Since it’s highly sensitive, the frenulum is the main trigger of orgasms in men.
You can stimulate the frenulum with your hands or mouth, whatever you prefer. It’s useful to experiment or spice things up, meaning both methods can do wonders.
For example, you can stimulate this erogenous zone during oral sex or use your hands to slide up and down the shaft. Graze the frenulum with the thumb. When using hands to stimulate the F-spot, you may want to get lubricant into the mix to avoid scratching or injuring gentle penile skin.
7. Scrotum and testicles
Scrotum and testicles aren’t the same things. The scrotum is the sac of the skin that holds and protects the testicles.
Even though it’s common knowledge that men get sexually aroused upon stimulation of testicles and scrotum, it would be wrong to leave them off this list. They’re just too important for that. The scrotum is filled with super-sensitive nerves, making it such an important spot.
You can stimulate these points with massage, oral sex, or a hand job. Don’t ignore the scrotal raphe in the process.
Basically, the scrotal raphe is the seam that extends down the center of the scrotum. Stimulate this point with hands or tongue. Men can also stimulate it on their own during masturbation.
The neck is the perfect erogenous zone to stimulate during foreplay. Even the gentlest kiss or slightest touch on the neck can make the entire body tingle.
Like with other erogenous zones, you can use hands and lips on a man’s neck. For instance, you can move fingers on the back of his neck, move them behind his ears and slowly make your way to the front.
Male nipples are unfairly ignored, but it’s time to change that. Gently touching or kissing his nipples can intensify sexual arousal.
In fact, stimulation of nipples activates the same areas in the brain as genital stimulation. You can start with a gentle kiss or touch or move on grazing nipples with your teeth. The latter is only applicable to cases when men enjoy rough sex.
The perineum is an area between the anus and scrotum. Due to all the nerve endings in this area, the perineum is one of the most powerful erogenous zones in males.
The spot is easy to reach from any position. People can even stimulate it themselves during masturbation.
But, when you’re with a partner, you can reach beyond the scrotum during oral sex or rubbing it. During missionary sex, you can reach between the legs. Apply pressure with knuckles and slide it back and forth.
Skin in the abdomen area is more sensitive to the touch than in areas always exposed to the sun. Kissing, licking, touching, or caressing a man’s abdomen, starting at the ribcage area all the way down, can boost their sexual arousal instantly.
This is a useful erogenous zone for foreplay and even during sex. Just keep in mind that some men are ticklish in this area or at their sides.
Stimulating the abdomen can still intensify their arousal, but if they’re too ticklish, they may also laugh at the same time.
Exploring and stimulating erogenous zones plays a crucial role in enhancing sexual arousal and pleasure for both men and women. While men have their own set of hot spots, it’s equally important to acknowledge and appreciate the diverse erogenous zones that contribute to women’s pleasure.
To get the best results, you may want to stimulate different erogenous zones instead of focusing on one only. Also, honest conversation about sexual likes and dislikes goes a long way.
Talk with your partner about erogenous zones on your and their body. Learn where to use your hands or lips to excite them and also be open about what you want from them.
