Have you ever wondered what to call that sensitive spot behind a man's penis?

First, a problem of nomenclature. The little-more-than-postage-stamp-sized area between a man's testicles and butt is known as several things.

The proper physiological or medical term for the area most know as a man's taint is perineum.

The most common term, "taint" is derived from the old saying, "T'ain't your balls, t'ain't your a**h*le."

Between each other, men often use the word "grundle," and then there's my favorite, the elven-sounding "nifkin."

Be sure you know which term your man prefers, which will likely provoke many giggles on both ends. You probably don't want to try sexily using the clinical term, as it will provoke groans and awkwardness. It's like using the word "penis" or "vagina" in bed.

You might not know it, but the taint is a highly erogenous area.

It's got plenty of nerves running through it for both men and women (which is why women often get a raw deal when theirs tear in childbirth). So it's definitely an area you want to get familiar with, despite its hairiness (men often don't shave that area) and sweatiness.

It's so up close and personal to the testicles and thighs that it may have a thin layer of sweat, sex fluid, or lube on it. You will not be able to tell the difference between these things, so they shouldn't matter.

How to Touch a Man's Taint to Turn Him On and Make Him Orgasm

There are several ways to engage the taint during sexual activity. The first is a firm massage. You may not know about the taint, but perhaps you know about the testicles. Men like to have their balls touched. Preferably cupped, firmly, and slightly lifted. Stroke them downwards, tugging gently.

Do this a few times, then shift your fingers backwards to the taint. Still holding his testicles in your palm, press his taint — gently at first, then firmly. Ideally, you'd get down there and surprise him with a blowjob while you do this.

The addition of the taint massage will increase his pleasure. You can massage in circles, but his favorite is probably a firm forward stroke. Don't follow with a backwards stroke; the action's up front. Instead, move your hand back and stroke forward again. This will probably make him orgasm.

Speaking of orgasms, this is when the taint comes in most useful.

However you're doing it — oral, vaginal, anal — as you feel him reach climax, reach your hand back and press hard on his taint. Massage it firmly.

Because of all those nerves running through his perineum, he'll probably climax harder than he ever has before. So hard, in fact, that the feeling will eventually get to be too much, and he'll begin to curve his body in on itself and say, "Stopstopstopstopstop."

As he does that, release the pressure and press his taint gently. This will help him come down from a hard climax.

Many men also go nuts for oral stimulation of this area.

If you're brave, you can also take a break from his penis and use your mouth on his testicles. When you've finished driving him crazy that way — and you can give him a hand job while you do this or not, depending on how center-stage you want to make it — use your tongue to trace the line from the back of his testicles to his taint.

Go back and forth firmly; go horizontal, tickling his thighs while you do. If you're just using your tongue to lick, it's a pleasant diversion to sex; if you do it while giving him a hand job, he'll likely orgasm really, really hard. Make sure to press firmly on his taint with your tongue just before he reaches climax.

Women tend to misunderstand the taint. Either they don't know it does anything or they think it's icky (these tend to be the girls who are also scared of butts).

Yes, a man's taint is often covered in pubic hair, but many men love it when women pay attention to this part of their body.

Nothing will make men come back again and again to have great orgasms than having sex with a woman who is willing to provide hard pressure on his taint right when she starts to orgasm — trust me. He'll go crazy.

And whatever you call it — taint, grundle, nifkin, perineum — make it part of your sex repertoire. Your man will thank you.
