Nipple Toys

Nipple Stimulation Techniques

When it comes to nipple stimulation, everyone is different. Part of this is because some people are more sensitive than others in varying parts of their body. Typically women's nipples are more sensitive as they have more nerve endings in their breasts.

There are various ways to stimulate nipples using your body, nipple sex toys, and more. Communication is key regarding finding out what a lover likes as there is a high level of variation when it comes to the types of nipple stimulation that people want. Some people like gentle stimulation while others like firm and even painful pressure. Some prefer no nipple stimulation at all, and others like their entire chest area massaged.

What Can You Do With Nipples?

The main types of stimulation to nipples are pinching, rubbing, sucking, biting, licking, pulling, whipping, and piercing. All of these can be done in a variety of intensities based on one's preference. You can also apply hot wax, ice cubes, and stimulating nipple creams for added sensations. A typical rule of thumb is to start slowly and work up to more intense stimulation.

Nipple Clamps & Toys

Nipple clamps are what you would probably assume them to be, clamps that are applied to the nipples. They come in a variety of materials, and some even have jewelry that hang from them. Nipple clamps can also be used on other body parts such as the labia, testicles, and ears. You will typically want to clamp them on your pinky finger or wrist area first to see what they feel like before applying to a more sensitive area such as your nipples. Some nipple clamps can be adjusted to the desired level of pinching. Moving around with nipple clamps can create added stimulation as they tug at the nipple with their weight.

Examples Of Nipple Sex Toys

  • Clover Clamps: Japanese nipple clamps (also called Clover Clamps & Butterfly Clamps)

  • Tweezer Clamps: There are a variety of tweezer clamps; some have jewelry, while others are connected to vibrators.

  • Magnetic Clamps: Strong magnets that pull apart from both ends and then pinch the nipple.

  • Vibrating Clamps: Vibrating nipple clamps can be used as a clitoral and nipple stimulator.

  • Suction Bulbs: Bulbs are held on through suction and can be pumped to create more intense suction.

  • Nipple Pumps: Nipple pumps can come in various forms, with some offering attached vibrators and bulbs for enhanced suction.

When To Stop Pressure

You should release the pressure if you feel a cold or numb sensation in the nipples or see that they are discolored and much more pale in color. If nipples have been squeezed in a clamp for a long time and you release the clamp, you may find that it can become painful when the blood returns to your nipples. To reduce the possibility of a very painful transition, you can use your fingertips to squeeze your nipples and gradually allow the blood to return to them rather than all at once. Some people enjoy the sensation, so it is a personal preference.

Nipple Suction

Suction is another way to stimulate the nipples, which can be done through the mouth and nipple suction cup sex toys. It can also be done through a technique called cupping or fire cups, which are taken from acupuncture. It should only be done by someone who is well trained in cupping.

When To Stop Suction

Suction should only occur for about 10 - 15 minutes at a time. You can receive light bruising from suction which is normal and should not do any permanent damage.

Other Nipple Stimulation

There are a couple of other types of nipple stimulation; one of them is using what is referred to as an elastrator. This is a rubber band tied around a nipple to make it more erect and protrude.

If you decide to pour honey, chocolate, use ice, or warming lubricants, you may want to use a waterproof throw to protect your sheets. Also, do not allow any sugary substances to enter the vagina, or you may risk a yeast infection. See our Lubricant Guide for more information.

If you decide to go with hot wax, you might want to consider a cheap shower curtain or even a painter's drop cloth that can be discarded after as you cannot wash it off. If you use hot wax, also be careful with how close you pour it onto the body, as you can cause undesired burns. A better option is using massage candles intended for this use as the soy wax rubs into the skin like massage oil, and there is minimal cleanup.

In Closing

No matter what you choose to do when it comes to nipple stimulation, make sure to communicate and have fun!
