The breasts have a high concentration of nerve endings, especially in the nipples. The underside of the nipple has the densest concentration of nerve endings in the entire breast. During arousal, the breasts swell and become more sensitive, and nipples may harden and in some cases grow substantially in size. When fully aroused, some women find that the nipples are so sensitive that even small touches can feel quite intense.
Why Does Nipple Play Feel So Tricky?
Many women experience a spectrum of sensitivity that can change dramatically. Breast sensitivity may change year to year (many women report an increase of sensitivity late in their 20’s and into mid-life), week to week (most women report more sensitive breasts during ovulation and menstruation), and even moment to moment, depending on stimulation, arousal, and even temperature.
To maximize the pleasure potential of the breasts, a woman and her lover must pay attention to the cycles of sensitivity and learn how to respond and adjust nipple play according to just how sensitive they are feeling in any given moment. This kind of awareness is a useful skill to become a better lover overall, and there is no better place to develop this skill than with sensual breast massage. The breasts are a central part of sexual anatomy, and nipple play offers big potential for spiking a woman’s arousal.
Nipple Play Golden Rules
- Start with broad, relaxing touch. Touch the entire chest area and her whole body before starting nipple play!
- When it comes to nipple play, sometimes less is more. Start with gentle pressure and slowly increase pressure and intensity.
- Never go right for the nipple, as tempting as it is. Nipple play is all about building anticipation by approaching the skin around the nipple, then backing away. Tease it out!
