The Most Sensitive Places You Should Be Kissing Your Guy

Want to know a secret to driving a guy wild? Don’t go straight for the stick shift. Yes, that’s where he ultimately wants you, but guys love a little prelude to intimacy too. Tease and make him want more by focusing on other sensitive places on his body to put your mouth. When you’re kissing him, try focusing on these places too.

1. Mouth sweet nothings in his ear.

Kiss your way along his earlobe as you whisper exactly what you want to do to him and vice versa. Don’t be surprised if he’s ready to move forward immediately and act out what you’ve been saying. Don’t feel nervous about engaging in playful or seductive conversation either – you can’t really go wrong if you just say what’s in your head.

2. Don’t forget the backs of his ears.

It’s easy to get carried away with the outer edges of a man’s ears, but the back of his ears are highly sensitive. Trace your tongue where the ear meets his head and you’ll definitely hear him moan.

3. Try kissing the palms of his hands and fingertips.

Every adult film ever shows women sucking on men’s fingers, it seems like. Men really like this, and while your life is very much not an adult film, this is one technique that you can modify to be slightly more romantic. Sabat advises: “Take your partner’s palm in your hand and gently trace along the edges and lines of their palm with your fingertips.” Then, kick things up a notch by “kissing their palms and fingertips, or gently taking one finger into your mouth.”

4. Make the back of his knees weak.

The back of his knees might not seem like a sensitive part of the body, but the area is full of nerve endings that’ll make his junk jump with just a few light kisses. This might seem awkward, but if you get him lying on his front, that’s the perfect time to try it.

5. Work his lower abs.

The area between his navel and waistband is one big playground for your lips. Having you kissing lower and lower builds anticipation and makes him hungry for more. Not to mention it lets you worship his amazing body at the same time. It’s a win-win situation.

6. Pay close attention to his hips.

For some guys, their hip bones are one of their more sensitive areas. It’s a good follow-up to working his abs. And the lower you get, the better for him, right?

7. The insides of his wrists can be extremely sensitive.

The skin on the insides of our wrists is thin and extremely soft, making it very sensitive to the slightest sensation. It’s also a strangely sensual place to consider kissing your guy, especially since you’ll be close to his pulse point and will be able to hear just how turned-on he is.

8. Tease his inner thighs.

Really want to make him excited for the main event? Kiss your way up his inner thighs. Women are the only ones who love this teasing. When you’re kissing a guy, don’t neglect this spot.

9. Try anywhere when his eyes are closed.

If your guy’s up for it (which he’ll definitely be up when you’re done), blindfold him. Touch him with nothing but your lips. Anywhere you kiss will be more sensitive since he won’t know what’s coming next.

10. Don’t be afraid to go shrimpin’.

If you don’t know what that is, shrimpin’ is the act of going to town on his toes. And while you don’t need to stick his whole foot in your mouth, peppering his tootsies with little kisses here and there can be very pleasurable (or very ticklish, depending on the guy).

11. Start necking, literally.

A RedBook survey found 29% of men considered their necks as their most sensitive area (the survey didn’t include the actual member). When you’re busy kissing, work your way down to his neck. Just keep it gentle or you’ll end up leaving a mark (great for high school, not great for work).

12. Kiss around his entire face.

Feather-light kisses around his face are sweet, yet they’re enough to get him excited. This is the one place to keep your kisses as innocent as possible and avoid any tongue. No one really wants their face licked.

13. Appreciate his armpits as the sensitive zone they are.

Often overlooked given their lack of apparent attractiveness and their potential to be a bit stinky, you shouldn’t underestimate the effect kissing a guy’s armpits can have. This is largely because he probably won’t ever expect to have you paying attention to that part of his body, and the surprise can be a really hot one.

14. Make a trail down his spine.

Trail your lips or tongue slowly down his spine and watch goosebumps rise up everywhere. Try this during a massage and he’ll quickly think of other ways to burn off his tension and relax.

15. Appreciate those little V-lines on an extremely fit guy.

If your partner is someone who spends a lot of time at the gym and has those little V-lines going down his pelvis, why not show them a little appreciation with your mouth. The guy will appreciate you kissing your way along those lines because not only will it feel good but it will act as a bit of an ego stroke as well. Who doesn’t want to be worshipped in this way?

16. Play with his belly button.

A quick kiss around his belly button sends waves of pleasure straight down south. When a guy’s excited, the nerves around his navel are extra sensitive and it’s a good way to say you’d love your own “button” attended to.

17. Work your way down (or up) the ladder of his ribs.

Again, the skin here is thinner than on the rest of the body, making it more sensitive and therefore potentially more pleasurable. There’s nothing hotter than when you slowly work your way down a guy’s ribs, kissing and nibbling as you go. He’ll be anticipating what’s coming next and seeing his excitement will drive you wild too.

18. Run your lips across his inner arms.

Mia Sabat, therapist at Emjoy, revealed that the soft skin on the inner arm makes it an extremely sensitive place to kiss on a guy’s body. Not only that, but it’s an unconventional approach that he’ll never expect. Chances are, he’ll discover just how much he likes it.
