    Six Surprise Sexy Spots


    WebMD Feature from "Redbook" Magazine

    By Judy Dutton

    Redbook Magazine Logo Try these unusual hot zones—yours and his—for an erotic surprise.

    When you and your guy get frisky, it makes sense to reach for some pretty obvious body parts. But those tried-and-true areas of your anatomy aren't the only places that can get you hot and bothered. Try playing with these six lesser-known zones—and have fun looking for a few unique new pleasure points of your own, too.

    Sacrum (on you)

    Why it's hot: The vertebrae in the small of your back (right above your buttocks) contain sacral nerves, which shoot straight to your genitals, say Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson, coauthors of The Essence of Tantric Sexuality . In fact, electric stimulation of this nerve will trigger an orgasm in 91 percent of women, according to a recent study.

    Try this: Lie on your stomach and have your partner press on the sacrum with his palm, or give it a gentle karate chop-style massage. This will stimulate the sacral nerves and build heat in the genitals, says Michael Gach, Ph.D., founder of the Acupressure Institute (acupressure.com).

    Nipples (on him)

    Why it's hot: Your own nipples probably get plenty of action. But your guy's can be very hot spots, too: They contain just as many nerve endings as yours do.

    Try this: Start off by lightly stroking the area with your fingertips. If that gets rave reviews, try upping the intensity with a gentle pinch or playful tug.

    Big toe (on you)

    Why it's hot: Ever notice how your toes twitch when you hit a high note (hence the term "toe-curling orgasm")? That's because there's a direct neurological link between your privates and your little piggies—especially the biggie. What's more, you can work this reflex in the other direction: "Stimulating the big toe can actually trigger an orgasm in some women," says Johnson.

    Try this: Of course, your guy can take your toes into his mouth—a classic bedroom move. Or, have him gently pinch the sides of your big toe and roll it between his fingers, Gach suggests; this activates reflexology pathways connected to your genitals.
