Nipples are a sensitive topic for most but what is it that makes these parts of the body more sensitive than the rest? Nipples for both men and women are considered part of the erogenous zones. This means that nipples, once stimulated can encourage sexual arousal in both sexes and even assist and contribute to vaginal orgasms while being stimulated the same time that the G-spot is being aroused. And there’s no denying when you see a hard nipple in public it almost triggers a primal reaction, the sensation and feeling when nipples are erect makes me melt into a puddle. This is truly an area for the most part untouched, as too often some of us want to just skip the foreplay and go straight to sex but if you focus on this area along with other sensitive parts of the body outside of the general erogenous zones, sex will be a different experience and far more rewarding.
Nipple stimulation is sometimes intense enough to elicit an orgasm in some women. Research has suggested the sensations are genital orgasms caused by nipple stimulation, and may also be directly linked to “the genital area of the brain”. In women, one study indicated that sensation from the nipples travels to the same part of the brain as sensations from the vagina, clitoris and cervix. Women’s sensitivity increases during and after puberty due to their hormonal fluctuations and increased chemicals in the body that develop for natural reproduction and female sexual maturity. Nipple stimulation may trigger uterine contractions, which then produce a sensation in the genital area of the brain. This could also be the case in men, from personal experience and research that men also indicate signs of arousal and pleasure induced by nipple stimulation, though with men being that their nerves are close together some find this area way to sensitive to play with and even touch during foreplay and sexual intercourse.

The nerves that make up the nipple are closer together in men and further apart in women. It is known in the piercing industry that nipple piercings for men are far more sensitive to pain than women who choose to pierce this area of the body. This is due to their nerve structure, however piercing this area depending on the person, can increase sensitivity which can also assist in sexual stimulation and it just feels fucking amazing. And in my opinion it is a very beautiful modification to the body for both visual and physical stimulation.
I decided yesterday to get my nipples pierced after many years of wanting them, I gave in and prepared myself for the whole experience. I wanted to feel the sensation some people talk about after they have had their nipples pierced. The sensitivity, the tingling I wanted to see what it was like and what it now meant to me being aroused in that area. Well firstly for me, it hurt. It was a tolerable pain nothing I haven’t felt before especially when it comes to sex. It was like a hard bite. I was surprisingly the least nervous for my nipple piercings than I had ever been before and I am heavily modified so it was a good surprise. Having someone touching your nipples to make them hard was interesting and I am very glad that it was a dear friend which made the whole scenario more comforting. Nipples really are a huge part of the erogenous zones because during the whole piercing time I could feel response below the belt. Almost like the pain sensation near my clitoris the same time my nipples felt pain which was really bizarre but very cool. I can definitely see why people do get their nipples pierced, they are much more sensitive now than ever before. It’s too early to say long term the benefits of this increased sensitivity but I will definitely find out soon! They look so pretty!
For those who can’t commit to permanent modification, there are so many other options out there. From bondage, fetish play, arousal oils, creams and gels to be applied topically which increase sensitivity or make them sensitive to touch. The possibilities and combinations are endless. I have decided to share some of my favourite toys and potions to enhance your experiences and show you the power and positives of stimulating the nipples!
