Nipple sucking: The art of nipple play and how to do it

Nipples are often neglected during sex, but they can be a powerful tool for sexual pleasure. In fact, they are a sexually sensitive area and can provide fun and even give an orgasm using only your tongue or toys.

If you’ve ever sucked your woman’s nipples, you know how important it is to please her. But doing correctly and giving her an orgasm is far from being straightforward – it takes time and lots of experience.

This is why we’ve gathered everything you need to know about nipple sucking, from why it feels so good to the best tips and everything in between.

Why does nipple sucking feel so good?

There’s something so satisfying about a good nipple suck. Maybe it’s the gentle pressure on the areola or the slight tugging sensation as your partner sucks on your nipple? Well, it feels good for a variety of reasons. 

First, the act of suckling triggers the release of oxytocin in the brain, which is often referred to as the “cuddle hormone” or the “love hormone.” Oxytocin is associated with feelings of happiness, stress relief, and calmness. 

Nipple stimulation activates the same nerve pathways in the brain that are linked to sexual pleasure derived from clitoral or vaginal arousal. When these pathways are stimulated, they can lead to sexual arousal and even orgasm, if that’s her G-spot.

Do women like nipple sucking? 

It’s a common question with no easy answer, and, as you guessed, the best response is – it depends. It all comes to personal preferences. Some women report enjoying having their nipples sucked during sex, while others find it to be painful or simply unpleasurable. 

A few factors can affect how a woman feels about nipple sucking, including her general sensitivity levels and the size and shape of her nipples. 

If you’re interested in trying it with your partner, the best way to find out is to ask them directly what they think about it. Alternatively, before having sex or a boob job, or while fingering, get close to their breasts, suck their nipples, and see their reaction; they might go crazy or move away.

Is nipple sucking only for women?

Nipple sucking is often seen as a sexual activity strictly for women, but it can be incredibly exciting for both men and women. For instance, as discussed previously, nipple stimulation releases oxytocin, a hormone that can help to reduce stress and promote feelings of relaxation in both genders.

Can you orgasm from getting your nipples sucked?

Yes, having an orgasm when getting your nipples sucked on is definitely possible, but it is also essential to understand that not everyone experiences orgasm similarly. 

Some people can orgasm from stimulation of the nipples alone, while others may need additional stimulation of the clitoris or vagina, for instance, with sex toys, to reach climax. There is no right or wrong way to experience orgasm, and what works for one person may not work for another. 

It’s important to be comfortable and try out different levels of pressure and stimulation, and, lastly, you should give it time. Having an orgasm when suckling is undoubtedly a thing, but it takes time; you may even find yourself having multiple orgasms.

Can all women have an orgasm from nipple sucking?

While most people think of the clitoris as the primary source of female pleasure, the reality is that many women find that their nipples are just as sensitive, if not more so. But for several ladies, it’s just disturbing and unpleasant. 

So, no, not all women can have an orgasm when having their nipples sucked, but it’s worth asking or trying if that’s your first time in bed.

How to get started?

We’ve covered all the aspects of nipple sucking and orgasms, but this sexual activity does not have to lead to orgasm. It can be a good start to having sex before penetration or just a way to warm up. This is how to get started properly:

  • Start French kissing and get comfortable – lay down on the bed, turn off the lights, play some sensual music, or stroke their body slowly
  • Don’t put them under pressure and go slow – they should fantasise and warm up before the action
  • Play with your fingers and hands – caress their body, touch them under their breasts, use essential oil and give them a massage, and start getting closer to their nipples
  • Start suckling sensually – while reaching orgasm shouldn’t be your goal, getting them as hot as possible should, and with some practice, you’ll quickly become a master

9 tips on how to nipple playing

Have you got curious about nipple sucking? Nipple sucking can add a new level of excitement to your sex life, so here are nine tips to help get you started. 

1. Know the nipple anatomy

Before you start your nipple play adventure, it is important to know a little about nipple anatomy. The nipple is made up of several different parts, all of which can be stimulated during play. 

The areola is the coloured area around the nipple, slightly raised and bumpy and can be a sensitive spot for many women. The base of the nipple is where it attaches to the breast. The shaft is the part of the nipple that extends out from the areola. 

Nipple sucking can stimulate all of these different parts, so experiment to see what feels best. Remember to start slow and build up to a more intense sensation. And above all, always check in with your partner to ensure they are enjoying the experience.

2. Ask permission first

For the receiving partner to enjoy nipple playing to the fullest, it is essential to start slowly and increase the intensity gradually. Be sure to ask permission if that’s your first time, and pay attention to your partner’s body language while listening for any cues that they may be uncomfortable. If at any point either person wants to stop, respect it and move on – after all, nipple playing does not have to be the main course.

3. Start slow and rub with your tongue

Before you start nipple sucking, getting your partner warmed up first is instrumental. Start by gently licking their nipples and using your tongue to tease and circle them. Once they are aroused, you can start suckling more firmly and adding pressure. 

Be sure to use a light touch at first, and gradually increase the pressure as they get more turned on. You can also try variating your techniques, alternating between soft and firm suction, licking and flicking with your tongue.

4. Make sure they like it

There’s nothing worse than a bad nipple suction situation, and the key is to start slow, check in often, and make sure they like it. Of course, take note of their body language and moans. 

If they start squirming, that’s usually a good sign that you should back off. If they push your head towards their breasts and make satisfying sex sounds, don’t get too caught up in the moment and don’t forget about their pleasure.

5. Try with teeth, but go slow at first

Applying too much pressure or using teeth can cause pain and discomfort. But, when done slowly and carefully, it can be terrific. Start by lightly licking and sucking on the nipple. Once they are aroused, you can increase the intensity and use teeth, but do not bite the nips; instead, touch the nipples slightly with your teeth and tongue at the same – we’re confident they’ll love it.

6. Expand the sucking to the breasts

Nipple sucking is not just about the nipples; it’s about the whole breasts. Make sure to show your partner some love by licking their boobs and stroking them with your hands. This will not only turn them on, but it will also make your partner feel appreciated. Who doesn’t want to feel like their boobs are being worshipped? So don’t hesitate and go ahead and give your partner some boob-loving.

7. A little bit of pain can be sexy

There’s something about a little pain that can be so sexy. Maybe it’s the way your nipples harden when you’re aroused or the way your body tenses up as you try to control yourself. Whatever the reason, nipple sucking can be a huge turn-on for women and men. 

And it’s not just the physical pleasure that’s important – it’s also the mental connection that comes with it. When you allow someone to suck on your nipples, you’re giving them a level of trust and intimacy that can be highly erotic.

8. Yes, you can be too rough

Anyone who’s ever sucked on nipples knows there’s a delicate balance to be struck between too much pressure and not enough. Too much, and it feels like your nipple is being pinched between two fingers; not enough, and it just doesn’t feel that great. 

But finding that happy medium can be harder than it seems. You might think you’re being careful, but if you’re not paying close attention, you could end up putting too much pressure on your partner’s nipples. And, if that’s the case, they will surely let you know.

9. Squeeze the boobs while sucking on their nipples

Nipple sucking can be a truly tantalising experience. The sensation of your partner’s mouth on your skin, the gentle pull as they draw your nipple into their mouth, and the warmth of their breath against your sensitive flesh all combine to create a delicious sense of anticipation. 

But while you may be content to enjoy the sensations simply, there’s another way to take things up a notch: by adding a little breast squeezing into the mix. As your partner sucks on your nipple, reach down and cup their head with one hand while gently pressing your breast with the other. 

The added pressure will heighten the sensations and take them over the edge into pure bliss.
