Smooth Operator: Nipple Play GuideNext to genitals, the nipples run a close second to being the most erotic zone on the human body.  Some women can even orgasm just from nipple stimulation alone while others see no erotic value in it at all. This is because these tiny nubs of delight are packed with a network of nerves, and according to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Vol 8, 2001, researchers say that the sensation we get from the stimulation of the nipples travels to the same part of the brain as sensations from stimulation of the vagina, clitoris, and cervix. However, not all nipples are created equal—stimulation for some can either be an intensely pleasurable experience, or a ‘don’t go there’ kind of thing.

So, wherever you find yourself on the nipple sensitivity spectrum, we think these pleasure play techniques could add a bit more to your erotic landscape.

The Nipple is Not an Island

nipples_010Nipples come in all shapes and sizes, and their anatomy is pretty straight forward. They don’t just sit there like some lawn decoration, but actually serve a very important purpose. For those who did not pass anatomy—here’s a brief overview. The area surrounding the nipple is called the areola, which ranges from a light pink to dark brown color. Those tiny little bumps on the areola are called Montgomery glands, and they produce oil which lubricates the area. For some women, this area of the nipple can get increasingly darker as she becomes more aroused. So, getting back to nipple stimulation. It’s a great way to intensify foreplay and can help produce oxytocin—the happy, warm fuzzy love hormone which relieves stress and anxiety. To prove this theory, if you ever get nervous before a big event, try tweaking your nipples for a few seconds, and see how you feel.  The good news is that women aren’t the only one’s that can receive this kind of pleasure, some men can also derive arousal with a gentle titty-twist.

Start Sloooooow!

Not only does nipple stimulation feel exquisite, it can also help get things started in the foreplay department. The trick, however, is not to go at em’ like you’re milking a a farm animal. Slowly build your lover’s arousal with some light and gentle teasing. In fact, don’t even touch the nipples at all, just use some air. Try pursing your lips and blow cool breeze across the surface of her skin. The slight temperature change is bound to reveal some type of reaction. But be forewarned, nipples have short attention spans. It’s advised to include some variety. With an open mouth, expel some hot soothing breath just over the nipple. You’ll know instantly whether or not your partner is getting turned-on.

The Sweet Spot

To turn up the heat, and build the sexual tension, try using your fingers and hands following the breath warm-up.  One of the best ways to turning someone on with this type of stimulation is with light fingertip caresses and slow circular motions. Once again, variety is key, so switch things up. Come at the nipple from above,and gently begin to rub or run circles around it. Then you can spread out your stimulation, around the areola and then the chest. After locating the sweet spot, offer a reward with a kiss from the lips.

 

Climate Change

nippleThe nipples can serve as a centerpiece to any sexual play, especially for couples that want to add a kinky twist. However, adding more intensity to your nipple play does require some finesse and creativity. Although ice is a popular choice, it can be a bit amateurish for advanced kinksters. If you do choose to use a cube,  take things slowly because you can easily numb the part you’re trying to stimulate. Plus, if you decide to use anything cold or frozen, you’ll want to keep it moving. Another popular simulation technique is hot candle wax. Jarring at first, wax can feel sensational while it cools and hardens. Word of caution—-buy a special candles fit for the occasion and melt at a lower temperature. And please, try it on yourself first.

 Sweet Anticipation

Smooth Operator: Nipple Play GuideA mouth on the nipple is arousing for many different reasons. It’s warm and wet! Plus, the tongue is not only agile, but can also be used in conjunction with the breath, the lips, and the teeth. Try using your tongue to play with the nipple (either working from the outside in, or from the inside out). Play with circular and lapping motions, each will feel different for your partner as the flat surface of your tongue has a distinct texture from the tip. If you know that your partner wants more pressure, or you suspect they might, try using your teeth. Start by putting the nipple gently between your teeth, and use your tongue to flick. Not only will the anticipation drive them wild, but it will release the pressure which feels divine. You can also add some flavor by slathering on a dab of Sensuva Lic-O-Licious Oral Delight Cream or chocolate sauce.

Toys for Tits

Liberator: Smooth Operator Nipple PlayFor advanced nipple players, especially those that like a side of pain with their pleasure, try a pair of well-crafted nipple clamps. Our favorite are the Cal Exotic Weighted Nipple Clamps. These clamps are screw adjustable and are designed to either increase or decreasing the sensations. To use, make certain that the clamp is positioned just at the base of the nipple (where it attached to the areola) and allow the counterweight to hand free. To create even more stimulation, try using a vibrator on the chain or directly on the nipple itself. Clothes pins may be good in theory, but are not really meant for long-term nipple pinching.

Whether you’re a newbie or seasoned pro, nipple play can be incredibly hot and satisfying for both partners. But just like any other sexual nuance, exploring the art nipple stimulation is not about a one-size-fits-all approach. What feels good to one, may not work for some. So, talking with your partner about the sensations will give you a good idea on how far to take it. However, once you free the nipple, it can be a highly erotic experience that can take your lover’s arousal level from zero to sixty within seconds. So what are your waiting for—dive right in! In the meantime, let’s have some more bitty.
