I am an eighteen-year-old male and I have had an embarrassing problem my entire life. My nipples are rather large and round. I'm not fat, and the rest of my body looks normal, but my nipples protrude and look very strange. I have spent much time doing every chest exercise imaginable, and although my chest muscles seem to grow, my nipples just get pushed out further.

How to Get Rid of Puffy Nipples in Men: Exercise, Diet, and Surgery
The male nipple being twisted by random strangers in clubs or work is a surprisingly common occurrence. The more you play with nipples, the bigger they can grow. So why do people do this? Is it sexual, do they want to get down? Are they just playing around?
It can occur in one or both breasts. Pubertal gynecomastia happens during the early years of puberty and usually goes away within 12 to 18 months. The causes of pubertal gynecomastia are not entirely understood. However, it is thought that hormone changes in puberty lead to these physical breast changes in adolescent males. Gynecomastia can also be caused by different medications and substances.
Everyday before entering the locker room at school during my teenage years, I would pinch my nipples. The left one first, then the right one, and I'd wait until they were both erect before turning around to face people. If the room was cold, I'd have about a minute until my body adjusted to the temperature and my nips set back into place. If the room was warm, about half that time. When they did relax back into their original form, I'd have to turn away from my peers, quickly swipe my hands across my chest, and then wait until the illusion returned.
