What is a nipple orgasm?

If you’re wondering, yes, the nipple orgasm is really a thing.

Your nipples can bring you to the same sort of portal-to-another-dimension pleasure that your clitoris and vagina can.

In this study, nipple stimulation enhanced sexual arousal for 82% of young women and 52% of young men.

If you’ve already tried it out for yourself, you may just be of the opinion that the numbers don’t lie.

And this study gives us more insight into why.

Using brain imaging, scientists were able to discover that stimulating the nipple lights up the same parts of the brain as doing something similar to the vagina, clitoris, and cervix.











That’s why they fall under the category of erogenous zones—areas of your body with major nerve endings that provide heightened sensual and sexual pleasure.

So there you have it. The science is in. Your nipples have a lot to offer you in the way of bodily bliss.

So how does it work? Well, differently for everyone—but we’ll give you some, uh, pointers to get you started.

But before we dive in, know that we’re all different. Thank goodness. So maybe nipples will be your thing, maybe they won’t.

The exciting part is, either way, your body has infinite possibilities—and the potential for climax is stored in all sorts of different pockets.

How to give yourself a nipple orgasm

Before you try with a partner, you might want to explore if and how your nipples might do it for you.

Adore to explore

Take the time to explore your one-of-a-kind body.

Breathe deeply. Focus in (a bit like meditating). Gently traverse the whole breast area.

One option is to start from the outside and slowly zone in on the nipples.

You might feel as you get closer to the center, things start to heat up a bit.

That’s because you have a high concentration of nerve endings in this area.

You might also notice that your nipples become erect.

If you’re into it, this would be a good time to try a pinch or twist.

Toys, toys, toys

If it’s your thing, you might want to try out one of the many nipple toys on the market.

They come in all shapes and sizes. They suck (in a good way), pinch, clamp, and vibe.

And if you don’t want to go out and buy something new, you may find that a tickle with a feather works.

Or something cold, like an ice cube, might increase the sensation.

Experiment with a double act

Once you’ve spent some time with your nipples, you may want to invite their downstairs neighbors to the party. 🤯

How to have a nipple orgasm with a partner

Every partnership has its unique ins-and-outs (quite literally).

Once you’ve spent some time exploring on your own and finding out what you like, you may want a partner to join in on your fun. Some options?

  • Touch. Remember all that exploring you did on your own? Now you know where to lead your partner’s hands (and tongue and lips and and and…) If you had fun with the twists and pulls, invite them to do it for you.
  • Tongue. Licking and sucking sensations can feel magical. You might want to add a nipple balm to the mix. These come in all sorts of fun flavors, like peppermint and cinnamon, to really get things tingling.
  • Blow. Yep, we’re about to relocate the blow job to a northern office. But this time, it’s quite literally a blow job. Their breath might just take yours away.

Because they are erogenous zones, even if they don’t bring you to orgasm, your nipples may still be a welcome addition to your sex life.

This is definitely a situation where it’s not just about the destination.

The journey can be one heck of a ride.

Have fun!
