Sexual arousal

sexually arousedarousalaroused
An erogenous zone (from Greek ἔρως, érōs "love" and English -genous "producing" from Greek -γενής, -genḗs "born") is an area of the human body that has heightened sensitivity, the stimulation of which may generate a sexual response, such as relaxation, the production of sexual fantasies, sexual arousal and orgasm.
The physical stimulation of an erogenous zone or acts of foreplay can result in arousal, especially if it is accompanied with the anticipation of imminent sexual activity.

Lip

Specific zones are associated with sexual response, and include the lips and nipples in addition to areas of the genitals, notably the foreskin and corona of the glans penis, clitoris and rest of the vulva, and perianal skin.
Human lips are a tactile sensory organ, and can be an erogenous zone when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.

Sexual stimulation

An erogenous zone (from Greek ἔρως, érōs "love" and English -genous "producing" from Greek -γενής, -genḗs "born") is an area of the human body that has heightened sensitivity, the stimulation of which may generate a sexual response, such as relaxation, the production of sexual fantasies, sexual arousal and orgasm.
Physical sexual stimulation usually consists of touching the genitals or other erogenous zones.

Achieving orgasm by stimulation of the nipples or other erogenous zones is rarer.

Clitoris

Specific zones are associated with sexual response, and include the lips and nipples in addition to areas of the genitals, notably the foreskin and corona of the glans penis, clitoris and rest of the vulva, and perianal skin.
The clitoris is the human female's most sensitive erogenous zone and generally the primary anatomical source of human female sexual pleasure.

Physical intimacy

The touching of another person's erogenous zone is regarded as an act of physical intimacy.
Intimacy norms are usually more negative near erogenous zones.

Perineum

perinealperineal bodyanogenital
Specific zones are associated with sexual response, and include the lips and nipples in addition to areas of the genitals, notably the foreskin and corona of the glans penis, clitoris and rest of the vulva, and perianal skin. Males can be aroused by stimulation to the sides of the glans and penis, upper side of the glans, the foreskin, the front side of the scrotum, the skin between the scrotum and anus perineum, and around the anus.
The perineum is an erogenous zone for both males and females.

G-spot

Gräfenberg spotG spotG-spot amplification
Men who report the sensation of prostate stimulation often give descriptions similar to females' accounts of G-spot stimulation.
The G-spot, also called the Gräfenberg spot (for German gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg), is characterized as an erogenous area of the vagina that, when stimulated, may lead to strong sexual arousal, powerful orgasms and potential female ejaculation.

Vulva

pudendal cleftexternal female genitaliacunnus
Specific zones are associated with sexual response, and include the lips and nipples in addition to areas of the genitals, notably the foreskin and corona of the glans penis, clitoris and rest of the vulva, and perianal skin.
The clitoris and the labia minora are both erogenous areas in the vulva.

Earlobe

ear lobeearlobesAttached earlobe
Some people find whispering or breathing softly in the ear to be pleasurable and relaxing, as well as licking, biting, caressing and/or kissing it especially the area of and behind the earlobe.
The earlobe contains many nerve endings, and for some people is an erogenous zone.

Vagina

birth canalvaginalvaginal opening
While the vagina is not especially sensitive as a whole, its lower third (the area close to the entrance) has concentrations of the nerve endings that can provide pleasurable sensations during sexual activity when stimulated; this is also called the anterior wall of the vagina or the outer one-third of the vagina, and it contains the majority of the vaginal nerve endings, making it more sensitive to touch than the inner two-thirds of the vaginal barrel.
An area in the vagina that may be an erogenous zone is the G-spot.

Breast

breastsbosombreast tissue
The entire breast has a network of nerve endings, and it has the same number of nerve endings no matter how large the breast is, so that larger breasts may need more stimulation than smaller ones.
Breasts, especially the nipples, are an erogenous zone.

Human anus

anusanalanal area
The prostate gland may be stimulated from inside the rectum, such as by anal sex, or by applying pressure on the base of the perineum near the anus.
The anus has a relatively high concentration of nerve endings and can be an erogenous zone, which can make anal intercourse pleasurable if performed properly.

Nipple stimulation

Stimulation of nipplesManual stimulation of nipplesnipple and areola stimulation
Intense nipple stimulation may result in a surge in the production of oxytocin and prolactin which could have a significant effect on the individual's genitals, even to the point that some people of both sexes can achieve orgasm through nipple stimulation alone.
Breasts, and especially the nipples, are erogenous zones.

Penis

Males can be aroused by stimulation to the sides of the glans and penis, upper side of the glans, the foreskin, the front side of the scrotum, the skin between the scrotum and anus perineum, and around the anus.

Ridged band

The foreskin, which carries the highly innervated ridged band and lower frenular delta, has mucocutaneous end-organs extending from the distal margin to the point where hairy skin starts.

Frenular delta

The foreskin, which carries the highly innervated ridged band and lower frenular delta, has mucocutaneous end-organs extending from the distal margin to the point where hairy skin starts.
The delta is highly innervated, and is considered to be a specific erogenous zone.

Erogenous zones are located all over the human body, but the sensitivity of each varies, and depends on concentrations of nerve endings that can provide pleasurable sensations when stimulated.
