Is nipple stimulation for men a thing? Can men have a nipple orgasm? Since both men and women have nipples, does that mean that men have an erogenous zone everyone keeps ignoring? 

Why do men have nipples?

Men aren’t breastfeeding, nor do they need nipples for anything else. That surely means that they are quite pointless, right? The majority of men wouldn’t even notice if their nipples disappeared one day. So, why do they have them? What is the reason for male nipples when they are not serving any purpose? 

Nipples are developed in the womb long before embryos become either male or female. It takes some time before the Y chromosome can kick in, and by that time, the fetus already has developed nipples. 

In the absence of the Y chromosome (which is smaller compared to the X), the embryo will develop as a female. That means that nipples and areolas for men are just remnants of their journey from a female embryo in the first couple of weeks before the genetics kicks in and they start developing male parts.

Do men benefit from nipple stimulation?

Now, this is a tricky part. For some men, nipples are quite useless. Stimulating them would be the same as stimulating a part of the neighbor’s wall. It doesn’t have any purpose. However, there are those whose nipples are still sensitive and can act as an erogenous zone. 

While the topic is not studied as much as we’d want, it shows that nearly half of all men can experience sexual arousal through nipple stimulation. So, the answer is both yes and no. It varies from person to person, and you will need to talk to your partner before you can know whether it is something they’d enjoy or not. Or you can simply try it and see how they react. 

In the worst-case scenario, they will give you a strange look trying to figure out what you’re trying to do. What is interesting here is that men usually aren’t aware that there is more to sex and pleasure than their penis. If their nipples aren’t sensitive, they will assume that it is the same situation for everyone else. 

Furthermore, men are also capable of lactating or producing milk as well. At least some are. That doesn’t mean that they will be able to breastfeed, though, and it is usually caused by other conditions like medications, malnutrition, etc.

How to properly stimulate men’s nipples?

There is a chance that your man’s nipples are an erogenous zone and that you can play with them. Furthermore, there is a chance that his nipples are even more sensitive than yours. The reason is that guys don’t play with that part of their body at all. The lack of stimulation will help them stay sensitive, and it might be just the right thing that can push them over the edge. 

The smartest thing to do is to start slow. Each person is different, and the same applies to male breasts. To start the process, you can slowly caress his chests, completely ignoring his nipples. Teasing is an effective way to get someone in the mood, and it can be so much fun. 

Always start with your fingers. Gently touch his nipples, and continue bringing more attention to them. Another great option is to try out a breath play. This means that you will gently blow on his nipples, and the hot air from your mouth will increase the sensitivity. From there on, you can kiss them, lick them, or do whatever you think your partner will enjoy. The key is to start slow and build your way up. 

Along with that, there are also sex toys to make men feel more pleasure in their nipples. Sometimes, men can go extreme and want to feel more pressure from nipple stimulation. With that, they start from pinching their nipples hard to buying a nipple clamp from the LG shop. Nipple clamps are said to be like a clip that blocks the blood flow in nipples. Once people remove these nipple clamps, they feel a satisfying pleasure.

Can men have nipple orgasm?

Anyone that has nipples can have a nipple orgasm. Nipples are filled with nerve endings, and there are many people who can’t climax without nipple stimulation. Of course, this is something that varies from person to person, and it applies to both men and women. It is best if you talk to your partner or test the waters before you start having fun. 

Keep in mind that the entire process is based on trial and error, and there is a high chance that you won’t succeed on your first try. People react differently to things, and some men might enjoy only light stimulation, while others wouldn’t oppose biting and nibbling. 

It is all up to you and your partner. Remember that communication is the key, and he should guide you through the process. Moreover, the most important question is how sensitive his nipples are. This will be the most important thing during nipple play, and it will determine whether he’s able to reach an orgasm through nipple play alone.
