NIPPLEGASM! In search of the coveted Nipple Orgasm

Get Your Nipple Game On Point

Wanna learn how you can stipple the nipple so that you triple your Ohs and make your body ripple? While my rhyme skills might be fickle, my boob game is on point and I am happy to share two things: nipple orgasms are real AND they aren’t as difficult to achieve as you might think. It’s relatively obscure as a sexual goal, or even as sexual trivia, for that matter. Yet here most of us are, with nipples that could be leading us to orgasm, and we haven’t even tried to make it happen. So let’s talk about it.

Nip’s Anatomy

Nipples are made of erectile tissue. You know, the kind of tissue that the penis and the clitoris have? Not only can nipples increase in size by up to 25%, but they are also connected to the genital sensory cortex which is the same part of the brain that the penis and clitoris are connected to. The thing is, the brain doesn’t know the difference. When you start to arouse your pepperoni perkies, your mind doesn’t know where the titillation is coming from. It just knows that it likes what’s happening and that it wants you to keep going. 

Here’s the catch: tit-gasms can be a little bit like chasing a unicorn. It’s fun whether you catch one or not. And chances are you won’t get one the first time around, but why would you pass up a chance to play a round of live-action etch-a-sketch? 

Slow and “OH”

With that said, let’s get into the teat-tails. The first thing you need to know is that nipple orgasms aren’t a rush job. Don’t attempt this on your quickie in the office closet. Seriously, it can take 30 minutes before you start to feel that (hopefully) familiar tingle. Besides, you need an environment and situation with minimal distractions so you can focus. As always, trying the technique on yourself is always the best way to explore. This way you can tell your partner exactly what you like, and you can tell your partner what they can expect when you bring them to their first nipple orgasm. 

Start by taking deep meditative breaths (yes, when I said focus I was being literal) and start to touch your body all over. The goals here are to become aware of your physical self and to relax. Softly touch your thighs, ribs, face, and arms while breathing deeply. For vulva owners, it’s helpful to squeeze your kegel muscles repeatedly at whatever pace suits you. Begin caressing your genitals to get yourself going, and then move back up to your breasts, making broad strokes first. Keep going slowly and lightly to prevent overstimulation and chafing. Start with the outside and underside of the boob, and work your way inward between them but don’t head for the nipple just yet.

The Build-Up

In truth, the process of having a nipplegasm can be seriously underwhelming. Some might even say “boring”, but it’s best to keep the idea of pleasure in mind and not the end goal. After all, these touches should feel good, even if they aren’t exactly mind-blowingly O inducing ...yet. And there are other factors to consider. Some nipples just aren’t that sensitive, to begin with, and don’t respond as easily as others. This could be because of prior surgery, illness, or any kind of physical or psychological trauma. The good news is, these aren’t roadblocks to a good nipple orgasm. And the opposite is also true. Some nipples are too sensitive and these touches could be painful, especially for people who are menstruating or ovulating.

Boost the Sensitivity

For the less sensitive nipples, you can increase the sensory intensity with vibrators, nipple suckers, nipple clamps, ice/heat, candle wax, etc. For more sensitive nipples, softer, slower caresses work best. If you don’t like a particular sensation, don’t write it off just yet. Revisit trying a nipple orgasm in a couple of weeks when your hormones have had a chance to switch up. Sensitive nipples may be less responsive in a couple of days and you can increase sensitivity if you’re having trouble getting that “O” so good feeling.

Reaching Nipplegasm

But let’s go back to caressing around the nipple. You want to heighten your awareness of your body and your sense of touch. Once you can feel your breath on your skin or a draft from another room, your receptors are ready. Softly touch your nipple, and employ the rolling technique. Think of how you would roll your fingers around an old radio dial. Don’t be afraid to squeeze or gently tug the nipple. To help you along, and to prevent chafing, lube is always acceptable. In the same vein, using your lips and tongue are nice alternatives, as is the saliva that comes with it. As arousal builds, and you hit the technique and tempo you like, don’t get so excited that you switch patterns or pace. If you want to throw a bit of kink into the process, edging is one of the most tried and true ways to accomplish a nipple orgasm. As you get closer to THERE, slow down or stop completely for a few moments, and then start back up. Do this as many times as you can stand it. Whenever you’re ready, go for the big finish!

Keep in mind that even if nipple play doesn’t end in a nipple orgasm, it can still contribute to a genital orgasm, and in that way, it is still considered a “nipplegasm”. It falls into what is known as a blended orgasm. Something else to think about: as magical as the experience is, you may not achieve the same results by doing the exact same thing the next time since the body changes day-to-day. Nipples, and breasts in general, change with hormones, so your sensitivity may be different, or your overall mood. Remember that the first step is to relax and focus, and if you aren’t able to do that, it might not be the best time to try for a nipple orgasm. 

Having a nipplegasm is something just about anyone can do. It may be more difficult for some, but not necessarily impossible, so don’t be afraid to keep trying. It’s totally worth it. Because nipples have 800(!!!) nerve endings all made for your personal pleasure, stimulating them triggers a release of oxytocin which is one of many happy chemicals in your body. It’s responsible for bonding with family, children, and lovers, and if you do achieve a tit-gasm, you reduce the amount of cortisol your body produces. The less cortisol produced, the lower your stress levels are, which means better cardiovascular function. The best part? Almost everyone has nipples. These nipple orgasms are for the masses. So if you got ‘em, tweak ‘em!
