Ladies, trying to get your guy all hot and bothered is about to get a little bit more complicated with the news we're about to give you. If you're like most of us, you probably thought that when it came to erogenous zones on dudes there was one spot and one spot only that had them go weak in the knees.
Well, hold the phones, my darlings! There's more to the package than just the penis (yes, pun intended). You may be startled to hear this, but men have other zones that can be easily tantalized with your touch. Although it's his nether region that will always be the money spot, his mouth and lips rank pretty high up on the erogenous zone list, too, receiving a 7 out of 10 score. OK, so maybe that’s not totally shocking, because who doesn’t love to be kissed?

Not far behind, with a 5.8 rating, was the nape of his neck, nipples at 4.8, his lower back at 2.8. And scoring the lowest on the one to 10 scale is your boyfriend's forearm. Yeah, so you may want to nip the forearm-licking thing from your menu of sexual activities.
The study, conducted in a combined effort by Bangor University and the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, found that erogenous zones for both genders were "remarkable consistent." Of the 800 participants questioned in the UK and South African, the results remained virtually unchanged "regardless of race, gender and sexual orientation." So, men are from Mars, but so are women, too? Good to know.
With our erogenous zones not differing much from men, and with men barely differing from their fellow dudes in this area, too, it's a win-win situation when it comes to pleasing your partner. Take what techniques you enjoy on yourself, ladies, then implement them into how you touch your boyfriend. Just think about all the madness you'll drive him to if you hold off a bit on going straight for the kill.
However, no matter what you choose, keep it all free of feet. Of the 41 body parts, when it came to the sexual attraction of them, feet scored the absolute lowest.

It's totally normal to find feet gross. Well, it's normal until you have a heart to heart with the foot fetishists of the world, but we'll cover that topic at a later date. Until then, put an end to forearm licking, and start the nape of the neck kissing.
