Get turned on from your knee caps? Didn’t think so.
The Frisky explores a recent study at Bangor University and the University Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. A total of 41 erogenous zones on 800 male and female subjects were ranked in order of the order of their sexual arousal levels. Making an appearance on the list of spots of arousal were shoulder blades, ears, inner thighs and lips.
Receiving top ranking for male and female arousal were the genitals. Surprise, surprise.
Knee caps and toes proved to be loathed by many, but I’m sure there is someone getting their rocks off to the backs of knees and toe crevices somewhere in this world.
The fascinating part of the study wasn’t the erogenous spots themselves. Anyone with a significant other could have probably figured these sensitive spots out on a rainy day. The impressive stats of the experiment is that the findings were steady regardless of racial identity, sexual orientation or gender.
“It suggests it is hardwired, built in, not based on cultural or life experiences,” says lead professor, Oliver Turnbull.
As a result of the outcome of this experiment, scientists are now working on the postulate that sexual arousal is a mental process.
