Sex is a lot of things, depending on the day, time, and partner, but there's one thing it almost always is — weird. I know, what kind of prude thinks sex is weird, right? But when you really break it down, it sounds super bizarre and makes you wonder about the first time someone had sex and thought, "let's just touch this and see what happens." Your body goes through some things during sex, too, but it's the weird things that happen to your nipples during sex that really drive the bizarre vibe home.

Short of propelling off your breasts when they are touched, your nipples do a few weird things while you're getting it on. If you've never considered nipple stimulation during sex, do yourself a favor and make it happen. According to Bustle, while nipple sensitivity may vary from woman to woman, in general, your nipples are a huge erogenous zone and can really benefit your arousal and orgasm when they are stimulated the right way.

That alone is crazy, right? I mean, your nipples are also there to feed a baby and now they can make you orgasm? But hey, your body is a wonderland which is why knowing the three weird things that happen to your nipples during sex will not only make you feel like Wonder Woman, they'll also kind of make you feel like a science project. (But in a good way.)

1. They Become Erect

You already knew this, but it's still pretty crazy to think of a part of your body protruding when you're aroused, right? According to Daily Mail, small muscle fibers contract when you're aroused, causing your nipples to become erect and more prominent. It most often happens in the early stages of arousal, but can also be caused by your partner touching them or offering other kinds of sensations.

2. They Can Make You Orgasm

Your nipples are more than just an accessory to sex — they could be one of the most important aspects. According to a study from Rutgers, nipple stimulation not only feels good, it actually stimulates the same area of your brain as your genitals do. In fact, some women can even orgasm from nipple stimulation alone.

3. They Become Warm To The Touch
