Sex

We get that guys are into our boobs. We want them to be into them — that's why we spend all that money on fancy lingerie and dresses that show them off. But sometimes they are a bit too into them.

Ever notice the guys that stare for a really long time? Or like to jiggle them? Or think they are pillows? Or are way too fixated on the impact on your boobs after you gain or lose weight? It can be kind of freaky.

And let's be real, while we want our boobs to get attention, sometimes there's a bit of divide between what we want them to do and what they actually do. Even if they are doing what we want them to do (which we hope is the case in any sexual situation), they may not be very good at it.

Why do men like sucking boobs?

Boobs are curious in that men seem to be fixated in them for all sorts of reasons.

It could be mommy issues — is that sucking starting to feel a little bit more like he's breastfeeding? Or it could just be that breasts are something you have that they don't, which makes them inherently attractive. And it may also be that they believe sucking on your nipples brings you pleasure and may mean you're more likely to have an orgasm.

All these things are possible, and there's more that can be going on that you never even imagined — and some of it is pretty weird.

Here are 6 weird things that can happen when a guy sucks your breasts during sex.

1. He's may not be good at it.

"When a guy sucks your boobs, and he's into it and romantic, it can be pleasurable. But when he's doing it just because he thinks it will turn you on and he adds some awkward twists to your nipples, it can be a real turnoff," says Carole Lieberman M.D.

When a guy is nipple sucking or licking nipples in a weird or uncomfortable way it ruins the mood and doesn't feel good if he's not doing it in the right way.

2. You may orgasm unexpectedly.

One unexpected thing that can happen is a nipple orgasm. It's not weird, but it might freak some people out. Nipple-sucking can lead to this response in some people, says sexologist Carol Queen.

If you want to try, tell your partner, "suck my boobs," and see if you get an unexpected surprise, if you like it, even better. If you don't, well now you know.

3. You might lactate.

If suction is strong enough, a bit of fluid can be emitted, says Queen.

If you're lactating, a partner sucking your nipples will make them emit milk, and that's a little weird if your partner wants to get a taste of your own breast milk.

4. He could regress to childhood.

"Some people might consider the response of a partner who gets into total breast-sucking to be kinda over the top... seeming regression to babyhood can happen for some people," says Queen.

5. He may make suction noises.

"The wet suction noise of sucking on my boobs can sound like a baby breastfeeding!" says Tanya Tate, Vivid Radio host.

6. You might get really sweaty.

We've all been on a hot subway or running around between appointments and noticed our boobs are experiencing some sweat.

It's natural and happens, but you really don't want him to start tonguing that area and experience sweaty nipples. Gross.
