It’s so fun being in a human body. One that is capable of pleasure, connection, and of course – orgasms. Your sex life is a place for exploration and trying new things. Most people think that female bodies can only orgasm through vulvar or vaginal stimulation – we’re here to prove otherwise. While the scientific jury is still out on this one, many people have self-reported experiencing different kinds of orgasms. Ones that they feel in their clitoris, g-spot, cervix, anus, and even – their breasts. Breast orgasms? You heard us. Some people claim that they can orgasm purely from breast stimulation alone. If you’re in an orgasm rut or are wanting to experiment in your sex life, it may be time to explore the world of breast orgasms. How titillating! Orgasms that come from different areas of the body can feel different. People who have experienced nipple or breast orgasms often describe them as hitting them like powerful waves, sneaking up slowly, and then becoming explosive.
Exploring Breast Orgasms
People who experience breast orgasms typically do so from nipple stimulation. Your nipples, just like your clitoris and vagina, are also major erogenous zones, aka areas that trigger sexual pleasure. Just like your genitals, the nipples are full of nerve endings – the same kind of nerve endings that help you have clitoral orgasms. When these nerve endings are fired up, they send messages to the genital sensory cortex that it’s time to wake up. Scientists have found via MRIs that clitoral and nipple stimulation actually stimulate the same place in the brain. It’s all connected, of course! If your nipples are sensitive, you’ve probably experienced getting turned on by having them rubbed, sucked on, twisted, or whatever tickles your fancy. What if you took that to the next level and reached the big-O through nipple play alone? Set the mood just like you would before getting into other sexual activities. Whatever that means for you and your partner – taking a bath (maybe together), dimming the lights, massage, dirty talk, whatever floats your boat. Let yourself get comfortable, stimulate your mind by fantasizing or watching or listening to porn if that’s your thing.
Some sexperts believe that you can train your brain to orgasm by stimulating different areas of your body. For example, you would stimulate yourself the normal way you would orgasm, like through your clitoris. At the same time, you would also stimulate your breasts. Right before you orgasm, you stop stimulating your clitoris but continue with your breasts. Their theory is that over time you can train yourself to orgasm from different areas of your body through this method.
It might not feel good for everyone, but you can even try using toys on your breasts and nipples like a vibrator. Some brands make toys specifically for nipple stimulation. Toys aren’t the only tool that can help you out, reach for a body oil or lube to help things slip and slide. You can even try ice to heat things up with a thrilling new sensation. Move slowly and focus on your breathing. The more you’re able to tap into your breath, the deeper sensations you’ll be able to feel. Try different techniques and sensations. Massage and squeeze your breasts, trace lines over your areolas. If a partner is involved, ask them to experiment with their mouth and tongue, nibbling, sucking, and biting them. Once you’re feeling super aroused, you can increase speed and sensation over the actual nipple, maybe even pinching them. It may be easier to experience a breast orgasm during your period, or even during pregnancy when your nipples tend to be more engorged and extra sensitive. Just be tender!
Put Your Best Breast Forward
As with many new sexual arenas, sometimes it can be better to explore nipple orgasms by yourself during solo sex, before involving a partner. That way you can tell them exactly what you like and how they can get you to the tipping point. It’s not just female-bodied people that can have breast orgasms. Cis-men and people born with penises can also explore nipple stimulation, and even have nipple orgasms. While it’s fun to explore different types of pleasure and sensation, remember to take the pressure off of yourself. Your sex life is not the place for perfectionism, it’s for connection and feeling amazing in your body.
Try exploring breast stimulation with no rush or goal in mind. Take the focus off of orgasms, and just be present in the awesome sensations you’re experiencing in your body. It can take time to experience a nipple orgasm, especially if it’s new to you. Give yourself twenty to thirty minutes of exploration. There’s no rush. Remember to take your time, be gentle (or not), enjoy yourself, and have fun with it!
