Having sex is an experience for the entire body. But ladies, did you ever try to know how your body gets affected during sex? Yes, from the vagina to your breasts, the whole body starts reacting when you are having sex.
Now you might be wondering how your breasts can be affected by intercourse. The actual act is mostly limited to the use of the vagina. Your bewilderment is justified. We know that vaginal intercourse can stimulate the blood flow in your vagina. But this also has some effects on the whole body as well, especially on your boobs. During intercourse, they’re responding, changing, and doing their thing, too.
Most people must be aware of the fact that their nipples become erect, especially when they’re aroused. But that is not all. While you are having sex the blood starts rushing through your body, which is headed down to your vagina, and of course, your boobs are going to get in on the action.
You won’t see any noticeable changes other than erect nipples, but there are definitely other things going on inside. Read this piece to know what are the things that your breasts experience when you have sex.
1. They become more sensitive:
Once you get aroused, your breasts immediately become more sensitive to the touch. Not only the nipples but also the areola and the entire breast becomes increasingly responsive. It’s like goosebump city out there.
2. They get bigger:
Your body mainly goes through four distinct phases while you are having sexual intercourse, those phases include excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. During the plateau phase, your body gyrates, in anticipation of an orgasm. As you know your vagina expands about two-thirds its usual size during this phase, your boobs too get bigger up to 20 to 25 percent bigger to be exact.
3. The areola swells:
Another thing that happens while you are having sex is your areola expands in size. Even sometimes an areola can swell so much that it may seem like the nipples are no longer erect. As long as a woman is aroused, her nipples are also staying that way.
4. They release ‘Scented Sweat’:
This is another really interesting thing that happens with your boobs, or to be technically correct, your areola. The apocrine glands in the areola start releasing pheromones (scented sweat) during sex. However, you may not be able to smell it on a conscious level, but your partner might be able to detect it, and both of you will become even more sexually attracted to each other.
5. They tell your brain to release Oxytocin:
During sex, when your breasts are fondled by hand or mouth, there is a stimulation that happens in your nipples that send a memo to the brain telling it that it’s time to release oxytocin. Oxytocin, which is known as the love hormone, makes people feel all lovey-dovey, and also works as a major component in creating an emotional bond among the people involved.
6. They can aid in achieving an orgasm:
According to a study, there’s a neurological link between your nipple and clitoris stimulation. So, if you are one of those who have a hard time getting an orgasm, stimulating both of them can help in achieving it. Lots of women can climax by nipple stimulation alone.
7. They change in colour:
While the blood circulation gets increased and it rushes through the body, the stimulation of the blood vessels creates a pink hue that mainly shows up both underneath as well as on the sides of the breasts. The pink colour can also spread to your upper stomach as well as neck. More importantly, before getting this tone, your breasts can appear slightly, tinted blue because of the veins in the breasts, which become more visible in advanced phases.
And of course, after having sex, the breasts go back to being their regular size. Just like the rest of your body, they too have enjoyed the ride.
