Breasts are a very beautiful but sensitive part of a woman’s body. Stimulating them during sex enhances sexual arousal and may also lead to an intense orgasm. In this article, you will get to know all about breast play meaning, some myths related to it, tips, and techniques for achieving orgasm through breast play.
What Is Breast Play?
Breast play is an act of touching, rubbing, or sucking on nipples during sex. It involves fondling a woman's breasts or even a man's nipples. Breast play in sex is for the intent of sexual gratification and your partner's pleasure because it excites people during sex.
How to Do Breast Play?
Many women enjoy breast play, and some may get nipplegasms (orgasm from nipple stimulation). Your nipples have tons of nerve endings, which, when massaged or fondled, stimulate the same part of the brain as the clitoris simulation does, i.e., the genital cortex. Thus, it helps in achieving orgasm. And that's why it is regarded as one of the best sexy ideas for increasing the romance in bed with your partner.
Here are some techniques for playing with the breast that will make the sex pleasurable for both you and your partner:
1. Talk Dirty
Intense and dirty talks during sex can increase the intensity of arousal. Compliment your partner’s nipples or breasts while playing with them. Tell your partner how beautiful their breasts are, and comment on your partner’s high responsiveness to the nipple or breast stimulation. This will increase their confidence and turn them on.
2. Don't Head For The Nipple Right Away
If you are unsure what your partner likes and dislikes, start working your way up to nipple stimulation. Start the foreplay by gently stroking or massaging the tops, bottoms, and sides of their breasts and softly kissing their neck, earlobes, and collarbone. This will increase their anticipation and leave them wanting more. Now observe their reactions to your acts. This will help you navigate their likes and dislikes.
3. Grab Your Partner's Breast
To make love to your partner and their breasts, do not just caress them but also hold on to them firmly, squeeze them, kiss them, and play around with them. This will ignite the sensual fire in them.
4. Focus On The Areola
When your partner is ready and moaning with pleasure, move on to the areola, which is the dark-coloured circle surrounding the nipple. The areola is way more sensitive than the nipple itself. To stimulate the area, you may gently stroke the nipple and circle the areola with a finger, or you may also circle the nipple with your thumb and forefinger.
5. Use Your Mouth
You can also stimulate your partner’s breast orally by licking and nibbling. Try using your tongue to draw circles around their nipples. Gently lick and suck on the nipple. If your partner enjoys this, you may also exert pressure and carefully bite the breast area. You can start by biting outside the breasts tenderly. If your partner likes the biting, you can work your way out and try rolling their nipples between your teeth.
6. Ask Before You Go Rough
Don't be too rough unless your partner likes it. Always ask before biting or going rough. If you and your partner enjoy spanking and rough breast foreplay, then you may try honking them, jiggling them, or roughly biting them. However, not everyone likes rough breast play. If you are unsure how your partner feels about the breast foreplay during sex, simply ask them. If they are a bit nervous or afraid about something, then calm them with your words and move forward slowly.
7. Use Toys And Props
If you and your partner want to take breast and nipple play to the next level, you can use nipple clamps or suction devices. These toys allow a more intense sensation than simple caressing or pinching with hands. Nipple clamps are used for consistent nipple stimulation. If your partner is comfortable, they can wear them the entire time you have sex. This will let you use your hands to touch other parts of your partner’s body.
7. Combine Breast Foreplay With the Clitoral Stimulation
For the best nipplegasm, combine nipple play with stimulation of the clitoris. Initiate with nipple stimulation via your mouth and simultaneously use your hands or sex toy such as a vibrator to tease the clitoris.
8. Play With Temperature
You can use something cold or hot on the breasts to increase the excitement, such as ice cubes. Take a cube in your mouth and use it to draw circles around the areola. You can also use mild coffee to gently suck on their nipples or put a spoon full of ice cream on their breast and slowly suck them. This whole foreplay will amplify your partner’s orgasm. Before going ahead with this, do not forget to communicate with your partner.
Breast Play Tips
Keep the following points in mind while engaging in an intense breast play:
- Before sucking, licking, or biting their breasts or nipples, always communicate with your partner. Remember that consent is the foundation of the relationship and is crucial for every sexual act.
- If you are unsure what excites your partner, initiate the act gently and see their reactions to ascertain what they like and what they don’t.
- Don’t just focus on the nipples; pay attention to the areola and other breast areas.
- Carefully mix pleasure with pain. Don’t forget to add a safeword if you are using toys as too much pressure might hurt your partner.
- Discontinue or abandon the activity if you or your partner are not comfortable with it.
How to Play With Small Breasts
Check out these tips on how to play with smaller breasts:
1. Take the Bra Off First
If your partner is wearing a padded bra, then you must first remove her bra because she may feel nothing with it on, and then start fondling with them.
2. Don't Get Too Rough
Small breasts are far more sensitive than big breasts. So you can squeeze them and swizzle the nipples but keep their sensitivity in mind. Ask your partner before going too rough, such as spanking or biting.
3. Try Avoiding Tit Wank
Tit wank is a sexual act that involves rubbing or sticking the head or penis between the breasts. Doing this activity on smaller breasts may not be pleasurable for you or your partner.
4. Tell Them You Love Their Breasts
Always compliment your partner’s breasts. This enhances their confidence and makes them feel good.
Does Playing With Breasts Increase Growth?
No, playing with the breast like touching or massaging does not make them grow. Genes and hormones determine and influence breast growth in both men and women.
Some women also think that special creams or pills can increase the size of their breasts. However, such creams and pills are of no use because only your genes and hormones affect the growth of your breasts.
Does Breast Play Cause Cancer?
No, breast play does not cause breast cancer. The real cause of breast cancer is still unknown to medical science but bumping, bruising, pinching, massaging, or touching surely does not cause breast cancer.
Scientists, till now, have discovered that certain risk factors increase a woman's chances of getting breast cancer. Some known risk factors are given below:
1. Increasing Age
As a woman’s age increases, the risk of breast cancer also increases. It is extremely rare in teenage girls and women in their early 20s. Generally, it occurs in women after menopause or in women over the age of 40.
2. Family History
If your family has a history of breast cancer, then there is a higher chance that you are more exposed to the risk of breast cancer. The degree of risk depends on the closeness of the relatives, the total number of relatives, and their age when cancer was diagnosed.
3. Personal History Of Breast Cancer
If someone had any type of cancer in one of their breasts, then there are higher chances of it developing in another breast.
4. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
If someone uses certain kinds of HRT after menopause, then the risk of breast cancer increases. Therefore, before taking any HRT, discuss its risks and benefits with the doctor.
5. Not Having Children
Women who have never been pregnant are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who have children.
6. Cigarettes And Alcohol
It has been observed that women who actively smoke cigarettes or consume alcohol are at higher risk of getting breast cancer.
There's also a myth widely popular that playing with breasts prevents cancer. This is not true. As mentioned before, the exact cause of breast cancer is still unknown. Women can reduce the chances of getting it only by leading a healthy lifestyle.
Summing Up on Breast Play
Breast play is a great way to intensify your partner’s orgasm. You can also combine different techniques to enhance your partner’s sexual feelings. However, before doing any sexual act with your partner, communicate with them and ask for permission. Just go with the flow, take one step at a time and enjoy the whole experience!
