Can Women Really Orgasm From Stimulating Their Nipples Alone?

Yup, sure can! According to our BFF Science the parts of the brain activated during nipple stimulation are pretty much the same parts of the brain activated  during genital stimulation.

The researchers discovered that stimulation of the nipple activated an area of the brain known as the genital sensory cortex. This is the same brain region activated by stimulation of the clitoris, vagina, and cervix. What this means is that women’s brains seem to process nipple and genital stimulation in the same way. In light of this, it is not at all surprising that many women are aroused by having their nipples touched and that, for some, this may be enough to lead to orgasm.

Now this doesn’t mean that every woman can have nipplegasms. The female orgasm is a pretty darn complex thing and it’s not just one brain region at work here. There is a lot going on in the brain during the orgasm, in fact in this video of a functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) of the brain during orgasm, it shows that almost the entire brain is active at the time of the big O! The more we learn about this complex neuro process, the more we are likely to learn about why some women have so much trouble orgasming whilst others just have to play with their nipples.

Life isn’t always fair it would seem. Or at least for your nipplegasmers, life is more fair for some than it is for others.
