Post Nipple Sensitivity

Ok, the other day I tried testing out how sensitive my nipple area was (for no particular reason) by dragging a finger from the middle of my chest, across my breast to the nipple area, and i dont know if this is normal, but my sensitivity rapidly decreases as I get to my nipple area. I have some sensation at the tip of the nipple, but I seriously cannot feel anything on the pinkish circular area surrounding the nipple(srry dont know what that's called). It's the same feeling you get when you injected with novicane. THis just seemed kind of odd to me and i've never really noticed before, is this normal or what??? Is there anything to be done about it?

They are the called Areola. Mine are sensitive all over the areola area but very sensitive at the nipples.

It just depends on where the nerves seem to be active. There are days when they are not very sensitive, but usually easily aroused.

sara-

don't worry, mine are the same way...the only time i actually feel anything when my bf does something is when he actually sucks on 'em...

i always just assumed they were less sensitive so that it wouldn't be painful when a baby latches on to feed...but that's just my guess based on logic...i don't really know anything...haha
