Nipple sensation and binding
« on: January 23, 2012, 06:12:54 pm »
This is possibly TMI, but it's been intreging me and I kinda want to know the answer, or your opinions on why, or simply whether this is just normal...

When I've not got my binder on I have almost no sensation in my nipples, I can grab the nipple and twist it around over 180degrees, or pinch the nipple and areola really hard, yet it hurts less than pinching my earlobe.  Apparently, and from what I found out when touching another guys nipples, they are usually much, much more sensitive than mine.

I always put this down to when I was about 10 and on holiday, I refused to wear anything other than swimming trunks in the pool, and wore nothing on my top half.  I suppose I was at the stage when the dredded things were just starting to get ready to develop.  Climbing in and out of pool my nipples got rubbed on the concrete, and by the end of the week they were scabbed, possibly a little pussy and very sore.  Since then I've just assumed that this was the cause of my lack of sensation in them, but then when I'm wearing my binder and I run my hands over my chest (it's kinda weird and vain I know, but I seriously can never stop doing it :P ) I can feel sensation in my nipples which I've never felt before.

Is it just something simple like that the nerves are all squished together so there's more in one place, meaning more sensation there, or something like that?  Or is it more psychological, as in they shouldn't be out there attatched to the fatty lumps so I refuse to associate with them and feel them, but when they're where they should be then I can feel them?

I hope this makes some sort of sense.

I can feel my nipples a lot more when i bind too. I have pretty much no sensation in them unbound. Never tried twisting my nipples like that and have never injured them. No idea why it's like this.

I also have much more nipple sensation when I bind. I don't really know why. I do have some nipple sensation when I'm not binding, but I don't think it is as much as most people. I seem to remember that one of the reasons I got my nipples pierced was that they didn't have much sensation and I think that did increase it a bit.

I definitely have much more when I bind. But I'm in the same boat, when I'm not binding, I can hardly feel anything. The whole twisting/pulling thing was something I did to find out if I could actually feel anything because half of me was worried hah.

I don't really pay much attention to this, but my nipples are always erect after binding, so perhaps this is true.

Echo - I feel sensation much more strongly in my nipples wearing a binder.

Lol at least one of my nipples is always inverted after binding. I lost a lot of nipple sensation after nursing for a year or so. I do feel them a lot more (and they feel better) while binding.

This is really curious because I've noticed something similar... Whenever I bind, my nipples are erect (and afterwards, too) and sometimes they hurt. I still have sensation in them but if I pinch or twist them I don't feel much pain.

I experience the opposite...my nipples are almost always numb after or while binding, unless I've been doing it for longer than usual (10+ hours) in which case they're just sore.

Although, mine are always inverted regardless of whether I've been binding or not - unless I'm cold or something. I don't know if that would affect sensation.

Mine are also much more sensitive when I'm binding.  I don't mind if I'm fooling around with a guy and he touches them, if I am.  Years ago, back in the "I'm going to try really hard at this whole "being a woman" thing" stage, when I was with guys and they'd touch them when they (obviously) weren't bound, it was like "Ok, you can play with them if you want, but don't expect me to actually know that you're there", so little actual sensation, unless they licked them too much and my nipples felt chapped, or they bit them, which would obviously hurt and would earn the guy a smack and a "If you like them *that* much, go get yourself a pair!".  I didn't run around topless that much as a child, not enough to get sunburned nipples or anything.  My guess is our brain clearly knows we're not supposed to *have* those things in the first place, so didn't think it needed to send out enough nerves to support anything bigger than normal male size.

I got the same thing as well, always figured I somehow killed them, lol. I figured I was just odd, but now I see that most others get the same thing. It's not the only thing I lack sensation with though. I like the idea of the brain not registering the entire nipple, but who knows if that could be it. Because mine were like this prior to ever binding. And when I was young, though I used to run around shirtless til I was 12 - I never injured them.

Wow!  I can't believe almost all of you guys have the same thing.  I wish I knew a cis-person well enough to dare ask/test them to see whether it really is just a transguy thing - suggesting that it's psychological.

@Kareil: I kinda had the same attitude when I was with my ex-boyfriend, I always said my body was his seeing as I didn't want it.

Re people talking about running around shirtless as a kid, I remember that being one of the first indicators I got that I was really different. Only some of the kids had to wear shirts, and I was one of them. Lol I remember being taught that I couldn't let people see my "dots."
