The head of the penis has no ordinary touch or pressure nerves, being supplied only with nerve fibres of the kinds which ordinarily sense pain and tempe-rature. The light stroking and other gentle surface caresses which prove so exciting when applied to the shaft of the penis thus accomplish very little when extended to the head. Caressing of this area must come fairly close to duplicating the stimulations of intercourse, by offering contact or friction against a warm, fairly slippery surface. If your lubricate your palm with a pool of saliva, press it down
upon the top surface of the penis head and move your hand up and down, to and fro or in small circles, you will usually elicit considerable response. This caress can be performed with slow, long movements or with short, rapid ones, but loses effectiveness as soon as the moisture soaks in or dissipates itself.
One structure near the penis head deserves special consideration. A small fold of skin containing a few strands of firm connective tissue moors the urethral opening to the peninsula of skin which runs almost to the tip of the penis bottom surface. This structure, which is called the frenulum, contains very sensitive and sexually significant nerve fibres. A great deal of the stimulation of intercourse probably comes from the pulling action of the penis skin on the frenulum. Caresses which produce similar stimulation generally prove keenly exciting.
Of the midler or indirect caresses, the simplest is the shaft skin stretch. Grasp between thumb and forefinger a fold of skin from the bottom surface of the penis, an inch or two down from the rim of its head. Gently pull this bit of skin towards the base of the penis, so as to tug on the sensitive frenulum area. Several brief tugs in succession work much better than continuous traction. The caress can be repeated at intervals, interspersed weth other forms of genital stimulation.
Direct friction over the frenulum area also intensely excites and pleases a man. Place the pulp of one fingertip or thumb tip just beneath the opening at the end of the penis, and draw it slowly down towards the shaft, making fairly firm pressure all the way. Friction between dry surfaces is even more stimulating than between moisture-lubricated ones for this purpose. The effective stroke involves only an inch or so, making repeated swipes with the thumb tip easy to execute while the penis itself is held in place with the other fingers. Varying pressure, rhythm, direction of stroking and so forth permits many variations of this caress. You can also apply friction to the same area with your knuckles, catching the penis between them and your husband's abdominal wall or holding in place with your other hand.
You can stimulate the frenulum still more intensively by pinching it between your thumb and forefinger, rolling it between these fingertips, or by holding it firmly and moving your finger tips up and down along the axis of the penis so as to stretch the frenulum's attachments first one way then the other. These forms of stimulation generally raise a man to an intensity of sexual excitement which makes for veru prompt sexual entrance. They provide a superb fillip to preliminary fratification and an excellent way to end precoital play when you feel sure that both your husband and yourself are entirely ready for intercourse.
