the scalp through head massage and hair play-
Your scalp is rich in nerve endings which makes playing with your
lover's hair a big turn on for many people.
feet and legs-
There are a variety of reflexology and acupressure points in the feet
so providing even a short foot massage can relax and entice your lover.
You can slowly work your way up the calves and thighs by using your
hands and mouth to stimulate your lover.
your lover's ears-

sensual stimulation. In fact, some men and women have orgasms just
through ear stimulation.

or simply by eating them. They are bitter but you will feel the stimulation
from them in just a matter of minutes and the effects will last about
two hours. See more foods that enhance sex.
armpits, breasts/chest and the neck-
These areas are sensitive and can offer sensual sensations when massaged,
kissed and licked. You can use stimulating
massage oils and lubricants on these areas as well for added sensations.
