I'm new here and VERY glad to have found such a place to talk. I feel like I never have anyone to ask such questions to.
Short bio: married for 15 years, four kids. Mostly SAHM, middle class or so, university degrees for both of us.
Sex life has had it's ups and downs, but pretty good when it's happening. A recent concern I've had is nipples that really sting after breast play. I nursed all four of my kids for 18 months to 2.5 years for each. We kept up breast play through all pregnancies and nursings (although not as much mouth on as him getting my milk icked me out). While there would always be times in my cycle that nipple stimulation felt much better than other times, I've always enjoyed it.
The last 6 months or so, I've noticed that after only a short time of nipple play, they start stinging like mad. It's really annoying! I'm not one of these 'pain enhances sex' kind of people. I stopped nursing my last just over a year ago so I can't figure out what could be wrong. They don't hurt at any other time (so I don't think there's an infection or fungus or anything).
Anyone else have this happen or have some advice? (besides seeing my dr., I might go that route if I can't figure this out myself)
