7 Awesome Erogenous Zones

By Hayley Krischer There are plenty of reasons to bypass "boring" body parts and focus on the sweet spots when you’re canoodling. But there’s also a really good reason why you shouldn’t: Exploring your partner’s body and touching on unexpected erogenous zones can bring a lot of playfulness into your sex life, says Kate McCombs, M.P.H., a NYC-based sex educator and founder of Sex Geekdom. Want to discover your partner’s unexplored erogenous zones? "Ask, 'What would delight you?'" suggests McCombs...

"He talked about his last girlfriend and how he gets picked up all the time by women," says Ruth, a New York City-based e-commerce executive. "He talked about how he loves to fly to Nice for the weekend and then jump on a helicopter to Monaco."

Yet he didn't even spring for dinner.

Â

"It was horrendous," she says. Obviously, there was no second date.

Â

Romance coach Paul A. Falzone, the CEO and founder of the Right One and the Together Dating Service, isn't surprised.

"If it's 'I, I, I' or 'Me, Me, Me,' it's such a turnoff. If you're doing well, good for you -- but keep it to yourself," he tells WebMD.

Â

A growing number of single and even married men and women seem to crave such advice.

Â

In an era where we hire coaches to help us organize our closets, our finances, and just about every other aspect of our lives, it's no wonder that a growing group of individuals, like Falzone, are making their living as romance coaches.

Who Me?

The romance coaches offer tips on appearance, teach dating etiquette, give e-feedback on dates gone wrong, and trouble-shoot for ongoing problems. Falzone says such services can benefit "anybody who is trying to get back out there and anyone who has been out there and is not succeeding."

Â

Falls Church, Va.-based executive romance coach Leslie Karsner, author of The Long Distance Romance Guide and the forthcoming The Romance Plan, has been coaching single and married folk for four years.

Â

Her practice began when, as an executive coach, her clients focused on romance issues. "These Fortune 500 executives would talk to me about relationships, romance, or some aspects of their love life and I realized that this is the area that is most important to people," says Karsner, also the romance coach for U-date, an online meeting service, and the founder of romanceinstitute.com.
