Purple Nipples

I have recently noticed when I get out of the shower or change my clothes my nipples are sometimes purple, also my boyfriend has noticed while we are having sexual intercourse and i have never been pregnant. There is no pain in my breast just frequent color change and I usually rub them and they turn back to a peachy regular color. Is there a reason why they might be turning purple?

yes.when your nipples get aroused they fill with blood.this gives them the purple look.
