Sex goes far beyond stimulating the vagina, clitoris, penis, or anus. The list of erogenous zones is long! That means that there are lots of different ways to stimulate yourself or your partner. The nipples are very sensitive for many people – especially women. This is a great reason not to skip the nipples during foreplay or sex. Read all about nipple stimulation here.
The nipples as an erogenous zone and nipple orgasms
During puberty, the breasts and nipples of women develop under the influence of female hormones. This causes the breasts and nipples to become more sensitive than in men. Some women even find it arousing when the nipples are merely touched. Not surprisingly, they’re often mentioned as a favourite erogenous zone.
Fact: Research shows that nipple stimulation activates the same areas of the brain as clitoral stimulation.
As nipple stimulation and clitoral stimulation “overlap” in a neurological sense, it’s possible for women to climax from just stimulating the nipples. This is also called a nipple orgasm.
Nipple stimulation: how to do it
There are several ways you can satisfy the nipples. Of course, the nipples can be touched with the fingers, mouth, or tongue. For example, they can be pinched or sucked. But besides these natural ways, there are also several tools to give the nipples some extra love.
Nipple vibrator or nipple stimulator
- Vibrator specially designed for nipple stimulation
- Special design
- Also suitable for clitoris stimulation
There are special vibrating toys available to stimulate the nipples in a targeted way. The nipple vibrator or nipple stimulator is designed in such a way that it can be closed perfectly around the nipples. The vibrations of the toy provide the sensation. Although the nipple vibrator is designed to stimulate the nipples, it can also be used for clitoral stimulation.
Did you know that… you can perfectly stimulate the nipples with any clitoral massager or mini vibrator?
- Restricts the blood supply to the nipple
- Popular in the BDSM world because of the possible pain stimulus
- Several types, including adjustable and vibrating models.
Nipple clamps are specially designed for the stimulation of the nipples. The clamp causes a stimulation of the nerve endings in the nipple, and it restricts the blood flow. The result? The nipple becomes extra sensitive.
As nipple clamps can cause a pain stimulus in the nipple, these clamps are very popular among BDSM lovers. However, it depends on how you use the clamps. You can easily adjust the position of the nipple clamps, so you can determine the pressure on the nipple (and thus also the pain). That’s why nipple clamps are also very suitable for people who are not into BDSM.
- Increased blood supply
- Perfect for use before further nipple stimulation
With nipple vacuum pumps, you can pump up the nipple and make it stiff. This causes more blood to flow to the nipple. This increased blood flow makes it more sensitive. In this way, nipple stimulation will be extra arousing! We advise using nipple vacuum pumps mainly before beginning to play with the nipples.
Did you know that… regular use of a vacuum pump can make your nipples permanently more erect?
Other ways to stimulate the nipples
- With a tickler, you can gently stroke the nipples. This slight, tickling sensation can be enough to get satisfied.
- A well-known way to play with the nipples is the use of ice cubes. Playing with hot and cold (temperature play) gives a special sensation.
