Are Big Boobs More or Less Sensitive Than Small Ones?



Dear Reverend,

I'm a fan of breasts in all shapes and sizes, but the women I've been with have all happened to have small ones. I'm currently unattached, and I'm worried that I won't know what to do should I encounter larger ones. Are they more or less sensitive?

Dear Bosom Bewildered, 

Boobs are like snowflakes: Big or small, no two are exactly alike. What else is not exactly alike? The people attached to the boobs. Some lucky ladies are able to achieve orgasm through nipple stimulation alone, while others don't like it one bit.

A study conducted at the University of Vienna found that large breasts were about 24 percent less sensitive than smaller ones. This is probably due to the fact that larger breasts have more fatty tissue than glandular tissue, which is the more sensitive part, but that's not always the case.

How did you figure out how to handle small breasts? Experimentation and practice, right? Everyone has different turn-ons and -offs. There are all sorts of fun things you can do with large breasts if your partner is into it. As with all sexual escapades, communication is key. You can save yourself some worry by simply asking her what she likes.

Any time you're about to fondle someone's bits and pieces, take it easy at first. Don't jump right on the nipple; work your way up to it ... and once you get there, be gentle. No teeth unless she asks.

Good luck, God bless and happy motorboating,

The Reverend
