Mind Blowing Facts About Nips
They're not just for hungry babies!
The Body’s Mood Rings
Nipples come in a range of colors which is due to your natural skin pigmentation, your age, and whether or not you’ve been breastfeeding. Nipples tend to darken as you age, and they will become darker while you’re breastfeeding.
They can also change in color during arousal as blood flows to the area for the purpose of pleasure.
Areolas on women are usually larger than those on men, and they can span from a few inches wide to smaller than a dime. Weight gain and pregnancy can cause the areola to grow larger, and they may become smaller with weight loss.
The nipple itself comes in a variety of shapes. Some grow quite elongated during arousal.
People with more sensitive nipples may find that friction wreaks havoc on the area as the skin is thinner and more protected than other areas on the body. Frequent rubbing may cause chafing or even bleeding.
Women may find it beneficial to put a lubricant like Vaseline on their nipples before doing vigorous exercise like running a marathon.
