Men's Life Today: Expert Q+A
My nipples are feeling sensitive. I'm a guy! Is this weird?
No worries. This is totally normal, for men and women alike.
The easiest way to explain it is that we were all similar little blobs of fetal tissue before genetics and hormones (estrogen and testosterone) kicked in to enable lactation in some (females) and not in others (males). Your nipples are feeling sensitive because there are tons of nerve endings on them. Range of sensitivity can go from none to extremely sensitive -- in both good and bad ways. It’s purely the luck of the draw -- it doesn’t have to do with size of the areola or anything like that.
For men, nipple action can be a huge turn-on, excruciatingly annoying or as dull as getting your elbow licked. Don’t use telepathy in trying to get women to know this about you. And use words, which are much more effective than convulsing in agony when a girl breaks out a move she learned from her last pro-nipple boyfriend.
