If you asked your guy to divulge the sexiest place on his body where you could stroke him, it doesn't take a genius to guess how he'd respond. But it turns out there are several lusty locales that, when tantalised and teased, will take his pleasure to a higher level than he usually experiences. "Stimulating these spots not only feels terrific for a man, but it also builds sexual tension throughout his entire body and increases blood flow to his genitals," says Ian Kerner, Ph.D., author of Sex Detox. "This boosts his arousal and intensifies his pelvic contractions, magnifying his orgasm tenfold."
And the fact that they're totally unexpected places where he may never have been touched before adds to the excitement. Read on as Cosmo maps out his most potent hidden hot zones, along with tips on how to electrify each of them. We suggest you crank the AC before you hit the sack because things are guaranteed to get seriously steamy.
THE G SPOT
Women aren't the only ones with a powerful G-spot. A guy's prostate - the walnut-size gland under his bladder - is the ultimate magic button to push if you want to blow his mind in bed. To tantalise it, partway through oral sex or intercourse, rest two fingers against the swath of skin between his testicles and anus. "His prostate is situated above your fingers, inside his body," says Kerner, "so by applying pressure here, you're indirectly rubbing his G-spot." When you sense he's close to orgasm, rhythmically press the area (one pulse every second) until he climaxes.
A more intense form of stimulation is to place a finger in his anus. First, gauge his interest by circling his back door softly with your finger while in a missionary or side-by-side position. gIf he doesn't tell you to stop and his erection doesn't flag, he's likely enjoying it,h says Kerner.
Next, ask him whether you can insert your finger in there. If he gives you the go-ahead, dab on lube (make sure your nails are trimmed and you've removed poky rings and bracelets), gently put your finger two inches inside his backstage entrance, and curl it in toward the front of his body until you feel a round bulb of tissue-that's his prostate. Lightly tap or swirl your fingertip around it. "Then gradually experiment with going faster and firmer," instructs Kerner. While you're at it, keep asking him every now and then if he's okay with it.
THE C SPOT
You probably know that the ear is an erotic zone, but you might be surprised to discover just how powerful a turn-on the little body part is. And the most scintillating section? The outer edge. "This firm, C-shaped ridge of cartilage houses the biggest bundle of nerves," explains Barbara Keesling, Ph.D., author of Men in Bed. As you would already know, more the number of nerve endings, greater the sensation. Smooch up his neck and along the back of his ear. "With each kiss, breathe out so your hot and humid breath warms the area," says Keesling. Then rest your lips on the top of his ear, and drag them down the edge so your lips brush the front and back of it. "The more aroused he gets, the more sensation he'll crave," notes Keesling. "Now nibble and suck his C-spot." As you do so, rub his package in the same rhythm.
THE 8 SPOT
This erogenous destination is a pleasure minefield. Place your finger under his penis where his shaft and scrotum meet. Draw a ring around the base of his member with your fingertip (that's the top half of the 8), then draw another around his scrotum where it attaches to his body (that's the bottom half). "This spot contains the same sensitive erectile tissue that forms a man's penis," says Kerner. During foreplay, trace out the 8 with your finger or tongue or use your tongue to tantalise one half while your fingers cover the other-then switch. Next, circle your tongue around his scrotum, and at the same time, squeeze the base of his member with your thumb and forefinger. "This traps blood in his penis," says Kerner, making him as hard as a stone! Other sexy ideas: Hold a mug of hot water for five seconds, and then slide your hands across both halves of the 8-spot- the warmth intensifies every touch. You can also cover your index finger with a satin thong before smoothly gliding it over the area. Or loosely weave a nylon or thin silk scarf along the base of his penis and scrotum in a figure-8 shape, then slowly pull it as you keep rewrapping it around his 8-spot. The cloth will twist about and constantly stimulate the entire zone. Be careful with the cloth though, you don't want the wrong stuff to get entangled the wrong way!
THE W SPOT
Snaking across your guy's chest is a pleasure path that forms a W. Have him lie faceup, straddle his waist, and put a fingertip on the upper outer corner of one of his pecs. Draw your finger down the edge of one pec, across the bottom, and up the other side (along the center of his rib cage). Then run it back down, under his other pec, and up the opposite edge. "The skin here is thinner than on the rest of his chest," says Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD, author of Touch Me There! "And it's extremely sensitive." Start with a firm touch (you can even sprinkle lube onto your fingertip), and then lighten up or try your tongue. "The more gently you graze his skin, the more you'll arouse the nerves be neath," explains Fulbright. Alternate between gliding back and forth along his W-spot and pinching his nip ples. "Grip slightly harder each time to bring extra blood into them and amplify the feeling," says Fulbright.
THE F SPOT
On the underside of a guy's penis, just below the head, is a tiny line with major pleasure potential: The frenulum. While many women touch the F-spot during sex, most don't know the best way to stimulate it. "This band of tissue has more nerve fibres intersecting it than any other body part does," says Kerner. "To bring him the ultimate pleasure during sex, it needs practically constant attention." When giving him oral pleasure, bring your hand into play and kneel slightly to his side. This way, when you grab his penis, your fingers are against the underside, where the frenulum is. Move your hand up and down in tandem with your mouth, making sure you reach up to the tip of his member so you graze the F-spot at every trip. During intercourse, get into a position that allows him to thrust, such as doggiestyle or missionary. "He can angle his body so his frenulum gets maximum friction," says Kerner. Clench your pelvicfloor muscles when he thrusts, creating satisfying resistance. Also, try different positions where penetration is really deep. With each thrust, he'll climb new heights of pleasure when the tip of his penis touches the mushy skin inside your vagina.
THE X SPOT
To find this next lusty locale, have your guy lie facedown with his legs together. The crack between his buttocks, the creases where each butt cheek meets the backs of his thighs, plus the creases of his inner thighs form an X. "His X-spot is arousing because it runs by his anus, perineum, and testes without touching them directly," says Keesling. Give him a massage, and move your hands lower and lower down his back as you knead.
Once you reach his butt, press a fingertip into the outer crease of each cheek (where they attach to his thighs), and slowly drag your fingers in toward each other. When they meet in the middle, glide one finger up over the crack of his tush while simultaneously drawing the other down between his thighs. Repeat, zigzagging your fingers as you stroke. "Switching up the motion keeps him surprised, which boosts arousal," says Keesling. To top it off, swirl your tongue around the most sizzling point: The centre of his X-spot, where the two lines cross. We bet this one's a big tease that'll get him up in absolutely, very little time!
THE R SPOT
Your guy's entire family jewels are certainly extremely sensitive, but there's one particular destination on his boys that can send more chills up his spine when touched than any other part of them. "The raphe is the thin seam that runs dead centre along the underside of his scrotum from top to bottom," says Fulbright. "This area is teeming with tingly nerve endings." However, the over sensitivity of the smae makes it a slightly tricky area to play with in the sack. Men either really dig having their R-spot stimulated or feel it's too intense for them, so experiment with touching it briefly every 20 to 30 seconds as you stroke his penis during foreplay. Also, don't directly attack the area, move towards it slowly, stroking, and teasing him in the surrounding places.
Once you hit the spot, practice slow motion at first and notice his reactions. Signs you should back off: He jumps up in bed yelling, "what the hell are you doing"; he flinches and stops making noises that indicate he's turned on (moans, sighs). However, if he's into it (he says, "Oh yeah baby! or "That's it, right there!"), "place your tongue at the back of his scrotum, where it attaches to his body, and slide it along his raphe," suggests Fulbright. "Continue tracing your tongue over the top of his scrotum and then up the underside of his member until you get to the head of his penis." You can also give him a rush when you're on top, that is during cowgirl or doggie-style sex by reaching back and lightly scratching his R-spot with one finger using a "come hither" motion.
THE O SPOT
"According to Tantric-sex experts, rubbing a man's tailbone awakens his kundalini, or sexual energy," says Keesling. The O-shaped knob at the base of his spine is rife with nerves that connect to his penis, and stroking him here can power up his libido. With him lying facedown, place two fingertips from each hand on his O-spot, and move them in small circles. Stroke him without using any pressure, unlike a massage. "Now kiss or lick up his spine while lightly spiraling your fingers over the area," directs Keesling. To deepen the sensation, switch to using your fingernails. When you're done, you'll see his spine isn't the only part of his body that's hard and straight.
