Why is it that a body part that is used primarily to nurture a young life has become such a sexually charged part of a woman? We’re talking about breasts here, or boobs, if you will. Boobs are not inherently sexual – they serve a purpose, which is to produce milk, and feed a baby. However, boobs and cleavage have become a very sexualized part of the body. From titty fucking, to boob jobs (breast augmentation), to cleavage lines, boobs are celebrated, especially larger ones. To this point, breastfeeding and nipples being visible have become something that is shamed constantly. There isn’t any fundamental reason for boobs to be so sexual, but yet, they are.
Do boobs really play such a big sexual role now?
Take Hooters as a great example. This popular restaurant chain has monetized the obsession with breasts by having women serving tables in skimpy outfits, and typically showing their larger breasts in tight tiny white tops. This sensation of sexualizing breasts has been wildly successful. Lingerie companies sell bras that are completely sheer. There’s clearly a market to show off breasts. Push up bras, lacy tops that bare it all up there, and even strings for bras that are completely open are normal to purchase now.
It can be quite funny to break down the art of playing with boobs during sex. At the end of the day, boobs are fatty tissue and veins that men and women alike seem to enjoy fondling, sucking on, clamping, and etcetera. We know that nipples are very sensitive, and it’s understandable that playing with them causes pleasure. But at the same time, why does a normal part of the body have to get such a bad reputation for being shown? It’s thought that larger breasts were considered a sign of fertility and motherly ability in the past and that this is what has caused them to morph into a sexual fetish of sorts.
Not all women are into breast or boob stimulation during sex. However, those who are may find that nipple play and fondling are super stimulating and a huge turn-on. Others may use their knowledge that boobs turn men on to woo them over on dates. Cleavage baring dresses and tops have become very common. Nipple pasties are sold as sexy lingerie frequently. This taboo body part has built quite a reputation in society. While boob play may be sensual and arousing for some, others find that it can actually put them off. It can be great foreplay, but annoying after a while.
When studying boobs during sexual arousal, it’s found that the volume of the breasts and the size of the areola tend to increase during arousal. We also know that women’s nipples can become erect during sexual pleasure. However, nipples can also become erect due to changes in weather, so is this really so telling? Breastfeeding releases oxytocin in the brain, which also happens during sexual release. In fact, it has been found that some women orgasm during breastfeeding due to the pleasurable release of oxytocin. It also releases dopamine.
Every single person’s body is different, and what one may find arousing, another may not. It is hard to conclude whether or not breasts are really sexual in nature, when we know there is a fundamental and biological use for them other than sex. However, with entire categories devoted to boobs on porn websites, it’s safe to say that there is a sizable market of people who get sexual pleasure from stimulating boobs, and from having theirs stimulated.
Are you curious to know if you would be stimulated by your boobs being played with, or itching to stimulate your partner’s breasts?
Try experimenting with new sensations
When aroused, boob sensitivity increases, just like the clitoris! When nipples are sexually stimulated, the triggered release of oxytocin creates a bond with your partner, which can build trust and help create stronger sexual satisfaction. Play with different strokes and touches, and incorporate those into your sexual activity. Try sucking on the nipples, use a leather whip to lightly graze the nipples, warm oil or cold ice cubes to generate sensation and temperature play. One thing may not do it, while another may create the most intense arousal you and your partner have ever experienced. There are so many ways to incorporate this part of the body to create pleasure.
Have you tried a boob sex toy?
Vibrators are not just for internal and clitoral stimulation. Try using a clit sucker on the nipples, or a vibrator to create vibrating sensations on the boobs and nipples. Bullet vibrators are great for this. Nipple clamps are also very popular for stimulating the nipples, and can be very sexy when paired with a nice pair of crotchless panties or sexy lingerie. Breast play doesn’t have to be limited to just hands and mouth.
Experiment with sex positions that make breasts easy to access.
Want attention on your boobs during sex? Cowgirl gives your partner access to suck on your breasts and fondle them. Doggy style can also allow for your boobs to easily be fondled. Don’t be super rough, remember that this is a sensitive area on the body! We aren’t trying to play baseball with them. Missionary also gives great access for your partner to fondle and suck on your breasts. Or you can try the modified cowgirl position, which involves you sitting on your partner’s lap on a chair, which allows for mouth and hand stimulation of the breasts.
At the end of the day, we may never know why boobs have become so sexualized and fetishized over the course of time, but what we do know is that for some, breast play can be very intimate and satisfying in their sexual life. If you haven’t tried boob play with your partner, why not try to incorporate it in? At the worst, your partner or you don’t like it. At the best, you find a new form of foreplay and stimulation that spices up the bedroom and leads to a bond, intimate connection, and deeper sexual satisfaction in the bedroom together.
