How Do I Make my Nipples Less Sensitive?

I am 32 years old, I have 7 children and only breastfed one which was number 2 for me. I have such sensitive nipples that any time my boyfriend wants to even touch them I giggle relentlessly. It isn't a turn on to me it just tickles like he is tickling the bottom of my foot!!! I hate this and want to know what to do about it, it not only is bothering me, but him also!!

To some degree you must perform desensitization exercises. If you constantly touch them with increasingly noxious stimuli, it is quite likely that you will decrease the sensitivity.
