Definition - What does Nipple Stimulation mean?

Nipple stimulation is the touching, rubbing, biting, kissing or licking of the nipples or the area around the nipples, called the areola, for sexual enjoyment. Women usually get more pleasure from this type of stimulation than men, whose nipples are actually more sensitive - and usually not in a good way. Nipple stimulation can be used as an arousal technique in foreplay or as part of sex. It is even possible for some woman to orgasm through nipple stimulation alone.

Kinkly explains Nipple Stimulation

Nipple stimulation is a great way to help start sex as the stimulation helps produce the chemical oxytocin, also known as the love hormone. This reduces stress, and will ultimately make sex more enjoyable. Women with larger breasts may require longer or harder touching, because larger breasts tend to have less overall sensitivity. However, it's important, whatever size your breasts are, to start off slowly and gently and find your own level of enjoyment. How much a woman enjoys nipple stimulation also depends on the time of her cycle; during some parts of the month, a woman's nipples can become too sensitive to be touched.
