Author’s Note

The belly button is a very sensitive and delicate area that with proper handling can open the door to sexual pleasure and arousal for anyone, whether they have a belly button fetish or not. All you need is the right touch and a partner that is open and realizes the importance of foreplay, and the fact that our whole body can be just as sensitive as our genitalia.

  1. I have a strong attraction to slender woman with firm flat stomachs. And the navel is the center of my attention to this region. As one of the more difficult areas to keep in shape, it’s usually a good indicator of how active and physically fit the owner is.
    My wife works out regularly and has a sexy flat belly to show for it. She has a gorgeous almond shaped navel with a little rim at the top. She also enjoys the attention I pay to it during lovemaking. I usually kiss and lick around her navel, then zero in and swirl my tongue inside. Sometimes I just tease around it, other times I start with pushing my tongue deep inside. I also finger it playfully when its exposed, which makes her smile and sometimes that leads to a lot more. She knows I like the feeling as well, so when she is going down on me, she usually stops at my navel and gives it a good licking for a minute or so.
    Before I married, in my first couple years in college I dated a lot of girls and always played with their navels. Most enjoyed it, but a couple did not. But even with the 2 girls I dated that didn’t like the feeling of my tongue in their navel, they did enjoy me kissing and licking around it.
    Not sure why, but there does seem like a reluctance to talk about it even among friends. Ass lovers, breast lovers, even foot lovers, seems to be accepted, but a navel lover?! Weirdo! Anyhow, my wife and I can talk about it together, and the best part is, my tongue and her navel are best friends.
