Q: My breasts and nipples do not always get hard when I am turned on. Sometimes one may become erect but not the other. I find this to be quite embarrassing because I know erect nipples turn on men, and I personally find them attractive. When they are erect they become pretty sensitive, but I can't always seem to get them erect unless I try and "pull" them out. Is there something wrong with me or is there something I can do to help make them erect and then stay erect?
A: There is nothing wrong with you. The fluctuations you are experiencing are perfectly normal. Perhaps you have been influenced by the media to think that your desirability depends on your nipples being erect. In our culture we have decided that erect nipples means a woman is sexy and turned on. In another situation, erect nipples might mean that her child is hungry and her body is preparing to nurse. When a woman is aroused her nipples often become erect. This is a condition that comes and goes just as desire ebbs and flows during lovemaking. I know of no way to make the nipples stay erect short of some s/m practices that include nipple clamps.
