The genitals undergo a process called vasocongestion, which causes increased blood flow, making them highly sensitive when touched. But where else triggers arousal? The word erogenous comes from the Greek eros which means love, and the English genous, meaning producing. An erogenous zone is an area of the human body that has heightened sensitivity, which, when stimulated, may create a sexual response such as relaxation, thoughts of sexual fantasies, sexual arousal and orgasm. There have been many studies and articles about just how many erogenous zones we have in our body, including the iconic scene portrayed on Friends when Monica teaches Chandler about the seven female erogenous zones. However, there may be many more.

What is the G-spot, and where is it?
Since that time, the G-spot has remained the subject of scientific and sexual controversy. Some females report experiencing immense pleasure from the stimulation of this spot. However, others have reported frustration from their inability to find it, or from the belief that they do not have a G-spot.
Here are some unlikely pleasure points that are often overlooked. The scalp is full of nerve endings, and even the slightest brush of the hair can send tingles through your body. To amp up the pleasure, run your fingernails lightly over the scalp, paying special attention to the space behind the ears and just above the neck. With sensitive skin on the outside and hundreds of sensory receptors on the inside, the ears top the list of erogenous zones for many people. You can also take advantage of those sensory receptors by whispering or lightly blowing into their ear for more tingly feels.
