We know that most women find their nipples to be extremely sensitive. But did you know that this is also the case for men as well? For most men this comes as a surprise. Men consider their tits to be useless trappings--good for nothing and kind of irritating (particularly if you are a runner). However, with a little exploring and playing, a man's nipples can also come alive--and cause things to stir in a big way downstairs.
Male and female nipples are erogenous zones. When stimulated by touch (hands or mouth) it results in sexual arousal. Both men and women have similar nerve supply in the teats; however, the nerves lie closer together in men and are more widely spread in women. This is why the nipple and areola are erotic receptors.
But is this myth or reality? Is it worth taking the time to spark this erogenous response in men?
Nipple Stimulation = A Hard Cock
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine may explain why: The sensation from the nipples travels to the same part of the brain as sensations from the penis and prostate. Who knew? (Okay--we knew. And many of you have already experienced this!)
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), researchers were able to see which parts of the brain became active when women and men stroked various parts of their bodies. These genital-sensing areas of the brain roughly correspond for both men and women--interesting, isn't it? Apparently they were surprised to find that the nipples caused such a stir! (Pay attention and see what happens!)
Rutgers University Psychologist Barry Komisaruk was quoted as saying: "My speculation is that this could be the basis for many women saying that nipple stimulation is erotogenic, because it stimulates the same area as the genitals," (And don't forget the guys--it works the same for us!) Researchers have mapped the male genital senses onto an area of the brain called the "medial paracentral lobule". This sits in the crevice between the two brain hemispheres near the top of the skull (so wear a helmet!)
The Mystery of the Male Nip
The resulting fMRI brain images showed a concentration of activation in the medial paracentral lobule. As each area of the genitals was stroked the activity showed up in its own corresponding location within this brain region. Komisaruk said, "Even though they're all clustered there like a cluster of grapes, the response to each [genital area] is different. They overlap, but they're separable."
So nipple stimulation showed up in two locations in the brain: the first (as you would expect) was in the part of the brain that receives chest sensations and the second was alongside the genital sensations in the medial paracentral lobule. So now there is proof positive that nipple stimulation does trigger a sensation in the genital area of the brain.

The Brain: Our Largest Sex Organ
The study participants were not necessarily 'turned on' by the self-stimulation that was reflected on the fMRI scanner. So what makes a sensation erotic? Komisaruk asks, "Are there particular brain regions that have to be activated in order for genital stimulation to be converted from run-of-the-mill stimulation versus stimulation with an erotic quality? That is the big question."
Big question indeed! How do we unlock the male nipples potential for erogenous stimulation?
The researchers discovered that an orgasm involves a ton of brain regions (amygdala, hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus, hippocampus, basal ganglia, accumbens-bed nucleus of the stria terminalis-preoptic area, the lower brainstem, cerebellum and the anterior cingulate, insular, parietal and frontal cortices.
So we have a sense of the electronics buzzing around in our brains, but how does the nipple work?
How Nipples are Constructed & Nipple Erection
Nipples are made of skin like everywhere else on our body; however, pigmentation tends to be darker. When our nipples become erect, it is not due to erectile tissue (like that found in the penis) but it is due to the contraction of the smooth muscles under the control of the automatic nervous system. Therefore it is more like a hair follicle standing on end instead of being like sexual erection. Pilomotor reflex (which also causes goose bumps) causes nipple erections in the cylindrically arranged muscle cells of the nipple itself.
Both men and women can experience nipple erection as a tactile response caused by cold temperatures (polar vortex anyone?) The release of oxytocin during sexual arousal also causes your teats to stand up and be noticed. This also happens when you are sexually attracted by someone--and they can then subconsciously read this as a nonverbal signal of your interest. So go ahead and be coy, but is that braille under your shirt or are you just excited to see me!

Oxytocin? The 'Bonding' Hormone
So what is oxytocin? It is referred to as the 'bonding' hormone. It’s released when your nipples and genital areas are stimulated as well as during orgasm as well as for a few minutes afterwards. The release of oxytocin brings on feelings of contentment, reduces anxiety levels and releases a sense of calmness and security with your partner. Researchers believe that this indicates that oxytocin may be important for the inhibition of the brain regions associated with behavioral control, fear, and anxiety so that orgasm can actually occur (in the wild?) Oxytocin also functions to protect against stress. In addition it increases monogamous behavior, helps reduce inflammation, improves facial recognition memory and increases empathy. Meta-analyses conducted in 2003 demonstrated that release of the oxytocin hormone can alleviate mood and reduce stress with a good efficiency. This why when under stress, many men jack off--it's self-medication.
So can men release oxytocin through nipple stimulation as well? I know that I go wild when my nips are sucked and played with.
Releasing Oxytocin through Sucking, Nibbling & Tongue-Flicking
I first 'unlocked' the pleasure of my nipples by gently squeezing them while masturbating. I found that I enjoyed a gentle pinch and slight twist to my nipples. It may have been a self-conditioning technique but I soon found that one hand would be stroking my cock and the other would move up my abs to those hard buds crowning my pecs. In a short time my nipples became even more sensitive. I moved on to using nipple clamps and nipple suckers. As part of edging play I alternate clamps for about 15 minutes and then nipple suckers for 10 or 15 minutes. I switch these back and forth for as long as I can hold off orgasm. The sensations vibrating between my nipples and cock become electric!
Afterwards, the brush of a fingertip or even the fabric of my shirt rubbing against my eraser-head hard nip causes a shudder to flow throughout my body and my dick to twitch. The sensations are that powerful.
Here are the words of another man talking about his nipples:
"They'll take stimulation all the way from light caress, rubbing, twisting, pulling, pinching all the way to light 'spanking'! (Which makes them even MORE sensitive in an hour or two). I make it a point to use moisturizer or olive oil as a balm on mine to keep them sensitive. For the guys that are uncomfortable with this, I say MAN UP! Sensitive nipples don't make you feminine or 'gay'. Heck, as far as I can see, male nipples are our only real 'sex' organ; since they only have one purpose...

He continues: "But, I suspect you need to practice to get them 'working'. Also, the level of pleasure from various stimulation seems to vary with temperature... Mine love nice hot weather; cold weather not so much as it makes them a little 'jumpy'. One other suggestion is to try lubricating them.

And he concludes by saying: "Nipple stimulation is something that my wife and I can share on a mutual basis (although SIMULTANEOUS is a little difficult, as I just can't pay attention hers when she's doing mine!). It's a very intimate and loving act."
"It's a Very Intimate & Loving Act."
Whether Alone or with a Partner; Male or Female
Nipple Play Will Increase Sexual Satisfaction
Our bodies are tuned for pleasure. We are covered with erogenous zones. Too many men settle for a quick whack or a 'wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am' approach to getting off. Yes, it feels good and you are releasing oxytocin BUT you can have so much more pleasure. There is no reason to shortchange yourself. Find out what feels good and dive headfirst into whole-body-trembling hot sex!
