Chances are, you and your guy have a few go-to moves that are guaranteed to get you both hot and primed for action. But sticking to the same old thing (an ear nibble here, a nipple lick there) won't always lead to a bed-shaking finale. "When you touch each other in a familiar way every time, your body becomes desensitised, and it won't feel as arousing," says Lori Buckley, Ph.D., a sex therapist in Pasadena, California, US. We consulted top foreplay experts and discovered uncharted erogenous zones so packed with powerful nerve endings, just touching them takes you from 0 to, um, 69.

THE ULTRASENSITIVE BORDER AROUND THE LIPS

Okay, so you know how to kiss. But what you probably don't know is that there's an undercover pleasure transmitter, the buccal nerve, surrounding the edges of the mouth.

"This area is extremely sensitive to touch, but it's often overlooked since most people focus on the plump part of the lips," says clinical sexologist Ra chael Ross, M.D., Ph.D. Trace the tip of your finger around the edges of your mouth and you'll experience a tingly, almost ticklish feeling. Kiss him as you normally do, then use the tip of your tongue to trace the edge of his upper lip lightly. Pull back, kiss him again, then trace the border of his bottom lip. "It subconsciously reminds him of your tongue swirling around the tip of his penis," says Dr Ross. The technique works when he does it to you too, triggering thoughts of his tongue below the belt.

THAT SEXY DIP WHERE NECK MEETS CHEST

The entire area between your jawline and shoulders is an erogenous zone, but there's one particular destination that'll spark distinct goose bumps. "It's that little indentation where the neck connects with the collarbone," says Leah Millheiser, M.D., Director, Female Sexual Medicine, Stanford Medical Center, US. "The skin is thinner there, and there's not as much fatty tissue underneath, so the sensations are stronger." So as you kiss down his neck, trail the tips of your index and middle fingers from one shoulder to the dip in the centre in a slow, circular motion. Then move your mouth over the spot and kiss it.

"The combination of the heat and touch relaxes the body, turning you on," says Buckley. "Plus, when your guy touches you here, your entire chest becomes more sensitive, including your breasts, which increases your pleasure."
