Looking for breastfeeding dating
"If you're sexually active and nursing, breast milk is a part of your life all the time," she explains.
The dynamics of these relationships can be incredibly varied, and they are not limited to heterosexual pairings – there are many women who enjoy the act of suckling a partner, too."Even within the alternative communities, a lot of people don't understand it," Ellie explains. "It all comes down to one basic premise: your kink is not my kink and that's OK."Part of ANR's taboo stems from some fundamental misunderstandings about who participates in it – and what it means.Where the "ick" factor comes in for many people – and where the triggering nature of the act lies for some survivors of childhood sexual abuse – is that it's perceived to be sexualizing an act that's associated with babies or child rearing.while breastfeeding in the morning is ideal for me."Adult nursing relationships are often seen as taboo, as evidenced by sensational reporting, like when the New York Post accompanied a story about a couple in an ANR with the tag "WTF." People who engage in ANR are often portrayed in the media as "freaks," with commenters quick to point out how "gross" the act is.The comments following an ANR story on the website Scary Mommy reveals an array of people offering judgment on the couple in question, with some wondering why they feel the need to share their story publicly, and one commenter going as far as to speculate as to whether the ANR participants are "attention seeking egomaniacs." Even in the world of kink and fetishes, ANR participants are outliers."We may cuddle because of the oxytocin and it's a nice way to relax and keep up [milk] supply.
But there's no difference in her role or my role in our relationship; we're equals." It's why she chooses to use the word "suckle" to describe her wife taking milk from her breast, instead of "nursing." "Nursing infantilizes the partner," Chelsea explains.
Prolactin, the other hormone produced by lactation, has also been shown to lower stress in the person producing it, with lactating women demonstrating less intense responses to adrenaline.
Chelsea says that, in her relationship, nursing isn't always a sexual act.
Others do it within the context of a monogamous relationship.
One woman on Fet Life wrote that she induced lactation to nurse her husband but, as he travels a lot, she shares her milk with other men when he is out of town to keep up her milk supply.
"It's a nice way to relax or fall asleep at the end of the day," says Chelsea.
