As you know, the male body is a hotbed of feel-good zones. But now experts are saying there are nine special spots that you should know about when it comes to sexual gratification. We're talking about passion points that even he may not even know about. "These are places on his body that are literal hot spots, loaded with supersensitive nerve endings that instantly rev him up when stimulated," explains Patti Britton, PhD, Los Angeles-based clinical sexologist and author of theThe Complete Idiot's Guide to Sensual Massage. Here, check out our guide to those nine naughty triggers, as well as the specific lick, squeeze and stroke technique for each that will send him into orgasmic overdrive.
THE OUTSIDE OF HIS LOWER LIP
The male mouth is an obvious hot zone. But zeroing in on that slope between his outside lower lip and chin will bring ultraintense bliss to his kisser. We've discovered that this tiny, delicate curve is packed with extrasensitive nerve receptors, says Lou Paget, author of The Big O and a certified sex educator.
Manhandle-him move: While making out, suck his lower lip into your mouth. Use the tip of your tongue to stroke up and down mere millimeters below it. "That motion stimulates the whole erogenous zone in a teasing way, which will put him on the erotic edge," says Paget. "And by keeping his lower lip inside yours, you magnify the sensation. It'll feel as if electric currents are shooting from his mouth straight to his member."
THE FRONT OF HIS NECK
Women tend to pay oral attention to the sides of his neck between his ear and his collar — but it turns out they're missing the major stimulation spot: just below his Adam's apple. "The thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland about halfway down the front of his neck, is closely linked to the sex organs, according to ancient Chinese medicine," says reflexologist Master Mantak Chia, author ofSexual Reflexology.
Manhandle-him move: Have your guy lie on his back with a pillow plumped behind his head so his neck is exposed and slightly arched forward. Warm him up by brushing your wet lips against the hollow of his throat. Next, run the soft flat of your tongue straight up until you're licking his Adam's apple. The thyroid is just beneath it; dip down and pause here and massage the area in wide circular motions with your tongue. "Teasing him in circles ensures that you excite the entire thyroid, so he gets maximum pleasure," says Chia. He'll be so hot and bothered, he'll gurgle your name in gratitude.
You know that your nipples are a carnal command center. Yet experts found your guy's headlights might be even more sensitive, since most men aren't used to having these sexy switches lavished with attention. "For a lot of men, their nipples are uncharted territory — an erogenous zone they haven't experimented with," explains Britton. Touch them, however, and you'll send shock waves of pleasure radiating through him, she adds.
Manhandle-him move: Our ultimate manipulation trick is called the ice cream swirl. While he's stretched out on his back, "slowly lick in a circle starting outside his areola, circling closer toward the nipple as you would an ice cream cone," says Britton. Keep tantalizing him by zeroing in closer with your tongue. Finally, quickly flick the nipple, then very gently bite it. "Men love when you slowly build up the pressure like that," she says. So don't be afraid to nip him harder than you would like to be.
To up the erotic ante, suck on an ice cube before you begin. Your cold tongue will supercharge the concentrated cluster of nipple nerve endings.
THE DIP UNDER HIS ANKLE
Halfway between his heel and ankle bone is a fingertip-size pressure point that we've learned has enormous passion potential, explains Laura Norman, author of Feet First. "This spot is linked to the sex organs," says Norman. "Pressing it releases energy, producing feelings of pleasure."
Manhandle-him move: Do the deed in the reverse girl-on-top position, so you face his feet. As you sense your guy is getting close to climax, reach forward, grab his ankles and pulse each pressure point in rhythm with your thrusts. He'll blow a gasket in seconds...and playing footsie will never be the same.
Most men are shy about guiding you to this patch of skin just past his family jewels. But beneath it is his prostate gland — an organ with major orgasmic power. "A few soft strokes here will bring him to the brink," says Tracey Cox, author of Supersex.
