8 Weird Things Your Boobs Do During Sex

Boobs are weird. Think about it: they’re just lumps of fat that hang off our chests, but for some reason, they’re insanely desirable. They also, believe it or not, have more of a function than to just look good in low-cut tops. We have breasts for a reason, guys, and it’s not just to make people feel horny.

You should, I hope, already know that boobs are a way to nurture and feed babies when we birth them. But they’re more than that! Our girls do other things, some that we don’t even know about, so that when they happen to us, we’re like “WTF is going on?!” This is true during every day life, but also during sexy times with a partner. Breasts can be pretty important during sex – dudes and chicks alike seem to love to grab them and, uh, suck on them (it’s not that that’s weird it’s just that I hate that phrase I’M SORRY), and they’re a pretty huge player in porn. But every once in a while, you might notice that they’re doing something you didn’t exactly expect – no worries, though, because it’s probably way more normal than you’d think.

What am I babbling about? Let’s find out! Here are weird things your boobs do during sex that you should know about:


They Get Bigger

Okay, so a good sex session can't replace a boob job, but your breasts can increase in size when getting it on. Some say that your boobs can increase in size as much as 20 to 25 percent when you're turned on.

This shouldn't be TOO surprising - your breasts generally fluctuate in size on a pretty regular basis. They can swell in size during PMS, when you have your period, with certain birth control pills, and of course, if you gain weight.

They Change Color

Again, the difference isn't going to be dramatic, but your breasts do kind of change color when you're having sex. Your boobs might start to look more pink, or it might seem like there's a light pink rash creeping up the sides or from underneath. This is probably from the rush of estrogen and stimulation of blood vessels that happens when getting it on. This doesn't list, but it's interesting to know about!

They Cause Orgasms

The rumors are true - your nipples can sometimes cause an orgasm. According to research, the brain space that gets activated when stimulating your nipples is the same one activated when stimulating your clitoris. So, if done right, nipple stimulation alone could lead to an orgasm.

They Create A Bond With You and Your Partner

Speaking of nipple stimulation, one study found that playing with nipples can create a strong bond between you and your partner. They aren't exactly sure why, but it's probably because they know you're getting turned on by nipple stimulation, and it's an evolutionary thing.

The Areola Gets Bigger

Being turned on can make your breasts swell in size, and it can also make your areolae get bigger too. Simply put, your areolae can look larger when you're horny. So... I guess everything just gets larger!

Things Get... Wet

No, not like your vag, but your breasts can make things kind of slippery in bed. For one thing, an intense sex session can leave your boobs sweaty which sounds gross, but is actually kind of cool - the pheromones that are released when your breasts sweat during sex are scented to make your partner more aroused (this is something neither of you will notice on a conscious level). On top of that, your nipples can... leak. Yes, this can happen even if you aren't pregnant and even if you've never had a kid. What can I say, boobs are weird!

The Veins Become More Obvious

If you've ever noticed a sudden collection of blue veins on your boobs when hooking up, don't worry - you're not alone. Being turned on can make the small veins in your boobs more visible. This is another way they change color!

They Make You Happy

Surprise, surprise, boobs will make you happy! In all seriousness, they may work with your brain to release oxytocin when you're aroused or having sex, which is the feel-good hormone that makes you feel super happy.
