How to caress your breasts for pleasure

Techniques and positions that can be used during sex with a partner or masturbation.

According to a survey conducted in 2016, 95% of women believe that they have erogenous zones. At the same time, 84% noted that they like breast caresses. We have collected several techniques that can deliver pleasant sensations. 

Why breast caresses can be pleasant

In 2011, researchers at Rutgers University set out to find out which parts of the brain are responsible for pleasure when a person interacts with particularly sensitive areas on the body. It turned out that during touching the nipples, the same part of the brain becomes active as during stimulation of the clitoris. According to study author Barry Komisaruk, this may explain why many women enjoy being touched on their breasts.

However, before moving on to the caresses of this area, it is important for the partner to clarify with the girl whether she likes breast stimulation. According to a survey of married women conducted by scientists from Benha University, 15% of respondents do not consider their breasts to be their erogenous zone at all. Also, everyone likes different types of stimulation: some prefer mouth caresses, others prefer hands. Some people want gentle, barely perceptible touches, others want intense and continuous interaction like a massage. 

It is also desirable to take into account the day of the woman’s cycle. Closer to the onset of menstruation, the breasts of some girls become very sensitive, and stimulation at this time can be unpleasant. 

How to caress breasts

use your hands 

Sexologists Carol Quinn, Shamira Howard, and Jess O’Reilly recommend several techniques in a Well and good article. You can alternate them: 

Move in circles

Gently massage your breasts and nipples with your fingers. You can make “circles” of large or small diameters, as well as change the pace or lightly squeeze your chest during the movement. 

Touch from outside to inside 

Use your fingertips to move from the top or bottom of your chest to the nipple and back. It is best to make these movements at a leisurely pace.

Stimulate the chest with an open palm

Gently stroke the nipples in a circular motion, gradually increasing the pressure. 

Caress with your fingers

Slowly stroke the nipples, gradually increasing pressure and speed. Movements can be both circular and from the bottom up. 

Squeeze your chest

Start gently – too much compression can be painful. Watch your partner’s reaction to understand what intensity will be pleasant for her.

Use your mouth and tongue 

In addition to the hands of Carol Queen, Shamira Howard and Jess O’Reilly, oral stimulation techniques  are recommended.
