Ladies: Do you find men's nipples attractive?

Postby ledgemoor » Sat Dec 14, 2013 3:43 pm

I was just wondering if women found shirtless men and particularly their nipples to be attractive or sexy.

I'm sure a lot of how we perceive breasts/nipples is culturally driven -- our society goes to great lengths to keep women's breasts hidden from public view, and that probably makes them seem more sexual. But I have no doubt that in cultures where women expose their breasts in public, men still find them attractive :D.

I wonder if it is that way with women's perception of men's nipples in our culture? They are organs of sexual pleasure or adornment -- they serve no other purpose that we know of. And a man is very different there than a woman.

Thanks.

I'm quite curious about this myself, in regards to pecs as well as nipples. And how do abs factor in?

Nipples? Meh. I would notice if they weren't there on a guy, but they don't do anything for me.

Yeah, I mean, how sexy can nipples with hair around them really be? :lol:

I have to agree. I wonder if it has more to do with women typically not being as "visual".
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.

Well, there are women who find shirtless men very attractive. I've had conversations with my women friends about the men who go around shirtless... The women were struggling with their thoughts.

I think of myself as fairly visual--but it's my husband's eyes that grab me every time. For me, emotion is what underlies sex. The physical fun exists on a foundation of emotion. For my husband, it seems to be the reverse. Sex is physical in its foundation for him, and the emotion happens on that foundation. So while I'm visual, it is the eyes that show my husband's emotions that pull my eyes to him.

Me neither. I'm not as visual as I used to be, but never had a thing for nipples.

Hardworking shirtless men - yeah they require intentional thought/eye guarding. Posed men - not so much. ... unless they have fireman pants on with suspenders.... *clears throat* what were we talking about again?

Not attractive per say, it would look weird without them but they don't do much for me. Abs on the other hand...

How about nipple rings on your hubby?

My DH doesn't wear any jewelry except for his wedding ring. That's the way I like it.

I talked to DW about this again.

First off, I think nipples are such a point of focus for men because the nipple is how you know the whole breast is naked. If only a little bit of the breast is covered, it's going to be the nipple (for arbitrary reasons). But how often do see men in tops that cover very little besides the nipple?

DW agreed that nipple was meh, but she loves my pecs and abs, particularly being snuggled between them and my arms. I know she definitely likes to feel me up during foreplay, all over the torso, and she often requests that I take my shirt off when we are at home. She definitely notices and comments when I'm shirtless around the house. But nipples are irrelevant.

I don't notice them on random shirtless men and if I did I might be grossed out by some, but I think my husband's are incredibly sexy! He has a very hairy chest but I can still suck on them when he lets me. :lol:

I'm not especially turned on by seeing DH's nipples, no. I don't dislike them but they don't do anything for me, probably because he isn't one who likes having his nipples played with. Seeing his nipples is like seeing his elbow, they're a non-sexual part. If he got turned on by nipple play, then I would probably get turned on looking at his nipples knowing the fun we have with them and what it leads to. When DH is shirtless, I love seeing his chest/stomach hair more than anything else.

I don't find other shirtless men especially attractive either. When I do <ahem> "visually appreciate" men, it's everything below their waist, not above. :oops:

Nipple rings? That would be so out-of-character on DH I'd find it more humorous than anything else. I'm not denigrating anyone who has piercings and I have no opinion on what other people do with their bodies, but I personally am not a fan of body piercings and would probably find nipple rings a little off-putting.

I dont get turned on by seeing a shirtless mans nipples but I do like them if I am with the man. Not that I am with random men now or anything like that but I was married before and then divorced and married again so anyway I have that history. With my husband I love his nipples to play with and tease but if I am looking at a mans body it is the whole thing with nice big shoulders and muscular arms and a nice tummy that are a turn on together. So nipples are not the focus.

This is my new favorite thing...the stomach hair. There's just something about it that attracts my fingers. :D

I'm uncomfortable around shirtless men other than my husband; in my family men just didn't go shirtless and so it's awkward and not a turn-on. Like women wearing a bikini--probably not quite so bad, but definitely the sense of "cover up, please; this isn't your living room!" Nipples do nothing for me, my husband's included; it's other part of the male physique (including the top half) that can be sexy. A nipple ring would just seem weird.
Marriage--what a wonderful image of Christ's love for His bride!

Nipples don't do a lot for me. I would enjoy DH's more if I he enjoyed me touching them, but they are Off Limits, so I just ignore them.
I have found the one whom my soul loves.
