Boobs during sex

0 Comment

When we have sex, it’s an experience for the entire body. But how is your body affected during sex? While most people are already aware of the fact that their nipples become erect when they’re aroused, that isn’t where the fun stops. With all that blood rushing around your body, a lot of which is headed downtown to your vagina, of course your boobs are going to get in on boobs during sex action.

Here are seven things that happen to your boobs during sex. Once that arousal starts to kick in, because your breasts are an erogenous zone on the body, they immediately become more sensitive to the touch. I’m not just talking about the nipples, but the areola, too, and the breasts as a whole. It’s like goosebump city up there. The body goes through four distinct phases during sexual intercourse: excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. It’s during the plateau phase that the body sort of expands and swells, in anticipation of an orgasm. Not only do your boobs increase in size, but so do your areola during sex.

This is a combination of the breasts becoming engorged with blood which results in the size change. While you may not be able to actually smell it on a conscious level, both you and your partner will be able to detect it, not even realize it, and you’ll become even more sexually attracted to each other. When the breasts are fondled, by hand or mouth, the stimulation of the nipples send a memo to the brain telling it that it’s time to release oxytocin. Oxytocin is also known as the love hormone, because it makes people feel all lovey-dovey, and is a major component in creating an emotional bond during sex. According to a Rutgers University study, there’s a neurological link between nipple and clit stimulation. What this means is if you’re struggling to orgasm, stimulating both areas can help in achieving climax.

In fact, there are some women who can come from nipple stimulation alone. The combination of estrogen rushing through the body and stimulation of the blood vessels leads to a pink rash that shows up both underneath the breasts, as well as on the sides of them. This pink color can also spread to the upper stomach and neck. Of course, after sex, they go back to being your awesome every day boobs, but just like the rest of your body, they definitely enjoyed the ride. Want more of Bustle’s Sex and Relationships coverage?

Your boobs are wily little seductresses. They poke proactively out of bikini tops, peek over lacy push-up bras, and flaunt their fabulousness naked in bed—turning any red-blooded heterosexual male into a panting pile of mush. But what most women don’t realize is that their boobs can give them heaps of satisfaction too. The majority of research is geared toward keeping breasts healthy, and not nearly enough is known about how women can enjoy their breasts during sex,” says Debby Herbenick, Ph.
