Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: My girlfriend wants me to rub her chest but not touch her nipples. Is this weird?

Answer from Dr. Locker

This isn’t weird, and it’s great that she’s telling you what she likes. While some women love to have their nipples touched, licked, tweaked, even pulled, others are totally turned of by any nipple action. Research in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that 59% of women asked to have their nipples stimulated during lovemaking. Others, like your girlfriend, may enjoy having their breasts fondled, with no nipple contact. Nipples contain a higher concentration of nerve endings than breasts, so some women’s nipples may be too sensitive for pleasure, especially when they’re premenstrual. Ask your girlfriend if you should avoid her nipples all the time, or only on super-sensitive days. Keep her happy by treating her breast and nipples ways that make her feel good.
