Ask the Resident (Sex) Advisor

The Resident Sex Advisor answers sex-related questions from college students

Dear RSA,
My boyfriend and have been having sex for months. A few days ago he asked me to lick or rub his nipples because he was curious what it feels like when he does it to me. But he really liked it a lot. This kind of creeps me out. Is it normal for guys to get turned on by nipple-play?

Your question brings up one of life's eternal mysteries: Why do men have nipples? Well, I don't have the answer to that, but I can tell you that although it is kind of weird that guys have nipples in the first place, it is not weird or unusual for them to enjoy having them played with. Some guys like it, and some don't. Chances are more would enjoy it if they tried it out.

While it may seem creepy to you, because the thought of sucking on a guy's nipples is kind of different, try to look at it this way: your boyfriend was considerate enough to want to know what kinds of sensations you experienced when he touched you a certain way, and he's adventurous and in touch with what makes him turns him on. If your sex is otherwise good, there's no reason not to indulge him by giving his nips a tweak now and then. That should be enough to keep him happy. Nipple play is not a big deal. Be grateful he's not asking you to get a strap-on and plow him in the ass (not that there would be anything wrong with that, of course, but...)
