Shocked, amazed or disgusted? These feelings resonate well with Jennifer Mulford, 35, as those are people’s reactions to her story of quitting her job to breastfeed her bodybuilder boyfriend, Brad Leeson, 36, full-time.
Jennifer who last breastfed twenty-years-ago shared her story and many breastfeeding mothers deemed it offensive claiming she’s sexualizing breastfeeding, while some have opined her story on Adult Breastfeeding, ABR, to be a ruse.
The 35-year-old revealed to The Sun, “When I read about the bond breastfeeding could create between two people I was envious. I have always enjoyed my breasts being touched during sex more than anything else so I knew I would enjoy it.”
The mother-of-a-twenty-year-old daughter who dry breastfeeds her man every two hours, everyday, to induce lactation and fool her body into thinking she has a baby has added flax seeds, oatmeal and a herbal pill which is claimed to help supply milk in her diet. Brad is ‘excited’ about the health benefits as he is a ‘gym buff’.
After learning about the bond of adult breastfeeding created between two people, Jennifer had tried dating sites in search of a partner as openminded about ABR but eventually shared the idea with Brad Leeson, a bodybuilder and her childhood sweetheart and he supported her.
The Atlanta native said, “It was like a light switch flicked in his head. I could tell from his voice he was curious and excited. At that moment I knew that I had a partner for life. We both wanted the same thing out of the relationship – a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve.’
She said Brad doesn’t mind being breastfed in public but she likes it private, “If it was up to Brad we would, but it’s very private to me. It’s been difficult to distinguish the difference between nurturing and sex.”
On sexualizing breastfeeding, Jennifer explained. “Although it’s so beautiful and peaceful it’s also erotic. It’s been hard to get through the first few nursing sessions without being tempted to have sex, but each time it’s getting easier.”
One Facebook observer wrote, “It’s idiots like these two that are making it difficult for breastfeeding mothers to do so publicly without shame or ridicule. They are only increasing the sexualisation of breastfeeding. There are NO medical benefits for adults to consume breast milk. Breast milk is for babies.”
According to Men’s Health, several reasons for bodybuilders taking breastmilk are myths as a registered dietitian, Marc Halpern, has revealed that there is zero evidence to suggest breast milk can benefit grown men rather smoothies with protein, fruit, vegetables and milk is much better and known to help.
Some reasons bodybuilders consume breast milk include, its high calorie and nutrient density, its designed to rapidly grow a human baby so some believe a similar effect will happen to a fully grown human, adding a nutrient and calorie dense liquid to the diet can help with muscle gain, its growth hormone contents and the notion that one cup of breast milk has 170 calories, 10 grams of fat, 16 carbs and two grams of protein.
Halpern said breast milk is only as good as the diet and general health of the person who produces it. ‘Breast milk generally isn’t regulated—if the woman has a terrible diet the breast milk will be terrible quality.’
Most women I know love having their breasts sucked before, during and after sex. So is this a sex thing or is she for real?
