Male Stimulation: 10 Male Erogenous Zones & How to Stimulate them during Masturbation

Everyone has specific parts of their bodies that are more sensitive to stimulation or where they like to touch or be touched. You might not know that these areas are called ‘erogenous zones’. While any part of the body can be a personal erogenous zone depending on the person, there are a few key areas that tend to work for everyone.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what exactly ‘erogenous zones’ are, 10 of the most common male erogenous zones, and tips on how you can stimulate them. 


What are Erogenous Zones?

Erogenous zones are generally an area of the body that has a much higher sensitivity, which can produce a sexual response when stimulated. There are areas of the body that are more naturally prone to being erogenous zones due to having more sensory receptors present, such as the ears, nipples, lips and the neck. However, as mentioned, there are many other lesser-known erogenous zones that a lot of people may be sensitive to and not even realise.

10 Male Erogenous Zones and How to Find Them

Let’s take a look below at some of the most common ones, as well as a few less obvious areas.


Perhaps one of the most obvious erogenous zones is the lips. The lips have over a million different nerve endings, making them easily one of the most sensitive parts of your body. This is why when you kiss someone, brush your fingers over them, or use other items like ice cubes to stimulate them, the feeling is intense.


Another highly ranked erogenous zone is the neck. Once again packed with plenty of nerve endings, your neck can be sensitive to the slightest touch or even a light breath. Kisses, lips and nibbles can cause even stronger sensations.

Inner Thigh

The inner thighs, for both men and women, are exceptionally sensitive, so using a light touch along this area, particularly as you move toward the genitals, is usually incredibly pleasurable.


The skin where the shaft of the penis meets the head, otherwise known as the frenulum is one of the most sensitive erogenous zones around the penis. Often overlooked for the more obvious areas listed below, this particular spot can be extremely sensitive when stimulated.


The scrotum unsurprisingly ranks as one of the most sensitive erogenous zones. The scrotum, or the skin surrounding the testicles, is an area that can be touched to simultaneously stimulate the testicles. 


The perineum, which is the area of skin between the scrotum and the anus, is another highly sensitive zone that can often be forgotten. This can be a very sensitive, sensual area to stimulate.


The prostate, also known as the P-spot or the prostate gland is an organ located internally roughly between the penis and the bladder. It’s also known as the ‘male g-spot’ which clarifies a little just how effective this erogenous zone could be for some.


Hands, while not the most obvious choice, have many nerve endings due to their necessity in needing to touch and feel. Giving hands and fingers a little additional attention can provide some additional stimulation.

Lower Back

The small of the lower back, also known as the sacrum, is a very delicate and vulnerable part of the body for most people. Touching, brushing or holding it during sex can give some extra pleasure.


Whether it’s the tip of the ear or the lobes, the ears also contain many sensory receptors making them another of the most sensitive erogenous zones. Many people feel arousal when given kisses or nibbles to their ears.

How To Stimulate these Zones During Masturbation

There are many ways that you can stimulate each of these erogenous zones, but it’s best to keep these tips in mind when exploring what is effective.

  • Explore through Masturbation - When learning about erogenous zones and how effective they may be, it can be beneficial to first discover your own particularly sensitive sones and what works for you. Through masturbation and the exploration of touching various areas of your own body, you can learn how best to stimulate yourself.
  • Don’t Go Overboard - There are numerous erogenous zones, but that doesn’t mean that stimulating all of them will work. Try only stimulating a couple of zones at a time, so as to not overwhelm your partner.
  • Explore Different Sensations - Each erogenous zone can be stimulated in multiple ways, and people may prefer different stimulation. Some people might prefer light kisses or strokes to their sensitive areas, whereas others may prefer stronger stimulation. For example, the use of a sex toy or vibration might be better for some people over gentler sensations.

Sex Toys for Erogenous Zone Stimulation

There are plenty of sex toys out there that are designed to stimulate erogenous zones. Vibration can be the perfect way to arouse your sensitive areas. Both TENGA and iroha have a selection of toys that can aid with this.

  • TENGA SVR - The SVR is a couples vibrator that can be used as a cock ring or as a vibrator for solo play. This can be used to stimulate areas of the penis with vibration either when masturbating or during sex.
  • iroha ukidama - The ukidama is designed to be multifunctional as both a massager for erogenous zones and as a vibrator. Using one of the three vibration strengths, you can massage sensitive areas to provide both relaxation or arousal.
  • iroha temari - The temari offers strong vibration while being designed to minimise the vibration transfer to the holder. Using the rounded top of the temari, you can stimulate sensitive zones to excite yourself.  

There are many other sex toys out there that can help with additional sensations when exploring your erogenous zones. Like discovering which of these zones works best for you, you can also experiment with different sex toys and vibrators.


When it comes to erogenous zones, everyone has different tastes. While certain areas of the body naturally have more sensory receptors, that doesn’t mean that either you or your partner will be aroused by them. It’s always best to try what works for you or your partner and discover what sensitive zones work best for you. If you haven’t tried certain areas, you can always explore whether these zones arouse you. Explore and try with different sensations and stimulations and you might find new erogenous zones that are pleasurable.
