Are nipples an indicator of sexual arousal?

chicmichiw chicmichiw
I've heard many people talk, write and act as if nipples stand to attention only when the person's aroused. Personally, I don't think so! They're up when I'm cold, down when I'm hot and of course, the mystifying 'one but not the other' situation. What do you think?

I don't think so. My nipples will randomly get hard on their own...cold, hot, happy, sad...doesn't matter. Plus, my nipples aren't overly sensitive to much so it's not like simulating them does anything for them.

Mine do the "one but not the other" thing! Thought I was a weirdo.

Agree with Bleu. Nipple erections are an indicator that....nipples get erect.

I think they CAN be a sign of arousal, but are not ONLY a sign of arousal.

nope. For many people nipples are a sensitive area, and will get hard upon arousal, however depending on the person/their sensitivity erect nipples could be caused by a number of things: cold weather, sneezing, a light touch/contact, ect. It's not necessarily the best indicator that someone is or isnt aroused.

Ditto. This is most likely one of those things that varies from person to person.

I've never actually paid attention to whether or not mine harden upon becoming aroused, but they definitely do so after I've had an orgasm.

Not really.

I feel like mine can turn hard when nothing's happening. I feel like I get wet pretty often, too, when I feel nothing. I feel like wetness, nipple, etc. aren't good indicators of if I'm having a good time or not

They most certainly can be an indicator of arousal, but not always.

A really poor one, if it all. It's an automatic physical response to nothing in particular. Possibly even more erratic than whatever provokes random stiffies for men.

I don't think so...just with different temps or for being touched

It's almost always either temperature or tactile stimulation with me. Usually when they're being touched, I AM turned on, but it's not an indicator, haha.

Though, after I have sex in which they have been stimulated, they tend to be wayyy more sensitive and get harder more easily- like rubbing against the inside of a bra can get them up and at attention.

Mine are mostly a thermostat. They will let you know when I'm cold, and that's about it. I've had partners get sad at the fact that my nipples are down, even when they have their hand touching a much better indicator of my arousal, dripping wet and with no extra lube. It confounds me why people would think erect nipples = arousal! soft nipples = not interested! when it comes to me.

Not for me. My husband and I joke about it a lot. Your nipples are hard, you must be horny.

Although mine responds to arousal, they are definitely not a tale tell sign of arousal as they are frequently erect.

Not for me. They're pretty much completely unrelated.

For me personally, no. I can be super aroused and have my nipples be soft. The only time my nipples are hard is when my partner is directly stimulating them.

It is a sign of arousal; however, being turned on is not the only reason my nipples become erect.

Personally, my nipples don't get hard or anything when I'm aroused.

I used to think the same thing, but my ex pointed out that my nipples get hard when I'm aroused (I actually hadn't noticed). But it can also just mean you're cold.
