Step 11: The genital area

Intensely arousing: The genitals are made up of a great amount of sexually responsive tissues, of which the clitoris is only the visible tip.

Intensely arousing:
The genitals are made up of a great amount of sexually responsive tissues, of which the clitoris is only the visible tip. The clitoris (which gets its name from the Greek word for "key") has the same number of nerve endings as the penis.

Licking, stroking, rubbing and kissing of the clitoris and vulva is the most stimulating sexual experience for most women. However, few women enjoy excessive clitoral emphasis at the start of foreplay. Rather focus on other erogenous zones first. Experiment with positions to ensure that clitoral stimulation is optimum during intercourse.

Any movement of the mons pubis transmits sensation to the rest of the genital area. Grasp it or rest the heel of your hand on it while using the fingers on the labia; or cup the whole area (labia and mons pubis) in your palm and fingers.
