29 Things You Never Knew About the nipples

1.
Nipple-gasms are a thing.
“Some people do experience orgasm from nipple stimulation alone,” Debby Herbenick, PhD.
2.
Although for some people, the nipples aren’t even the most sensitive part of the breast.
Some studies have shown that the tops or sides or bottoms of the breast can be more sensitive for some people, Herbenick says.
3.
Everyone has nipples because of how fetuses develop in the womb: Nipples show up before sex organs (like vaginas, ovaries, testicles, penises) do.
4.
Nipples can come in a lot of different shapes, sizes, and colors.Dark, light, pink, brown, big, small. It’s all normal!
5.
So can the areolae.
Areolae is plural for areola, which is the colored skin around your nipple. Areolae can be extremely light or very dark (or in between). They can also be as small as dimes or as wide as dinner plates. It’s all normal!

6.
The little bumps on your areolae are called Areolar glands, or the Glands of Montgomery -Oh, and they’re totally normal and not something to worry about.
7.
Something else that is totally normal: Pretty much everyone has at least some hair around their nipples.
Pluck or wax ‘em if you’re not a fan.


8.
If you are running in a long race, your shirt might chafe your nips so bad that they bleed!
Ways to help combat this: Vaseline, tape, not running marathons.


9.
Pregnancy can make your nipples and areolae get bigger and darker.
Thanks, hormones.
10.
Some people have inverted nipples.
That means instead of pointing out, the nipples actually are indented into the skin and point in. Some people get surgery to “fix” their inverted nipples, but that’s generally an aesthetic choice, Port says.
11.
Inverted nipples can make it harder to breastfeed — but not impossible.
“It becomes difficult for a baby to latch on if you have inverted nipples,” Katharine O’Connell White, MD, MPH
12.
Speaking of breastfeeding — it can be WAY harder than you expect.
“Breastfeeding can be incredibly difficult,” O’Connell White says. “People expect it to be natural and easy, but more patients than not have a lot of difficulty with it, which can leave them feeling really discouraged.” If you’re having trouble and want to make it work, seek out the help of a lactation consultant. “Lactation specialists at hospitals can be incredibly helpful,” O’Connell White says.
13.
And breastfeeding can also be hell on your nips.
Cracking, bleeding, sore nipples from breastfeeding aren’t necessarily a health problem, but they can be incredibly painful (and can make you not want to breastfeed anymore). “I talk to my patients a lot about good nipple care,” O’Connell White says. You can use Lanolin (or a similar ointment) to help keep your nipples moisturized between feedings. But if nothing is working, it’s worth reaching out to your doctor to see if you might have a yeast infection. “That’s easily treated, but it needs to be caught first,” O’Connell White says.
14.
EVERYONE can get breast cancer.
No matter what gender you were assigned at birth or how you identify.
15.
Changes to your nipples can be red flags for breast cancer, also.
16.
Your nipples can sometimes leak fluid, even if you are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
17.
Some breast cancer survivors choose to get artistic mastectomy scar tattoos, rather than reconstruction and tattooed nipples
18.
If you get breast augmentation, you might lose some sensation in your nipples.
19.
Implants shouldn’t make it harder to breastfeed, but getting a breast reduction possibly can.
20.
Implants can make treating and diagnosing cancer more difficult, though.
21.
Nipple piercings can take between three and six months to heal, and sometimes longer.

22.
Nipple piercings can make your nipples bigger.
23.
And nipple piercings can close up REALLY fast
24.
If you get your nipples pierced, you shouldn’t allow anyone to lick them until they’re fully healed.
25.
Some people have three nipples
26.
Harry Styles has four.
No shame in the quadri-nip game.
27.
In 2012, a 32-year-old man was found to have seven nipples.
28.
In 2010, researchers wrote about a patient who had a nipple on the sole of the foot.

Nipples are sexy things.
