Behind Closed Doors: What's the Deal With Lactation Porn?

Whether or not you've actually watched one of these porn clips, you've undoubtedly stumbled into the corner of the internet hosting porn clips with titles like "adult breastfeeding" or "adult nursing" before. If lactation or breastfeeding isn't your particular fetish, you've probably wondered "WTF is this about?" or perhaps "Why does this kind of turn me on to watch?"

Well, dear Fleshlings, I am here to answer all of the above. Adult breastfeeding, as it turns out, is a very popular and very normal kink to have (between two consenting adults, that is, as always). There are multiple sexual interests under this umbrella: Adult nursing relationships occur when one or both partners in a relationship keeps up their milk supply to allow for breastfeeding during sex or cuddling, while lactation play and adult "baby" relationships differ. For the sake of this topic, I'll keep adult baby play (when one partner pretends to be an infant) out of this particular post. In adult nursing relationships, both parties are acting as just that - adults.

Shall we? 

Intimacy

Any way you slice it, incorporating feeding in your sex life is a potent way to foster intimacy and get an extra dose of oxytocin - which is the main reason people like it so much. Most of us know that women who are pregnant or nursing a baby produce milk already, but women who are not with child can induce lactation through a mix of constant pumping, hormones, herbal supplements, and constant feedings. To induce milk is a serious commitment, both time and money-wise, and to feed someone nourishment directly from you is an act of utmost closeness and trust for many folks.

It's not always sexual, either - while plenty of people incorporate breastfeeding into foreplay, just as many like to suckle while they're watching movies or sipping their coffee. It's a relaxing activity, particularly when you consider that women release extra oxytocin when they're feeding a little babe - it helps reinforce the bond. 

 

Nurturing  

And though ANRs (adult nursing relationships) and lactation don't involve acting like infants, it does have a nurturing element - like many other sexual acts. This can be through the physical act of feeding (cradling someone's head while they suckle, for example), but it can also be a nutritional thing. The pros of drinking human breast milk as a grown person are heavily disputed, but some people swear by the electrolytes and microbes provided for gut health and sports recovery. 

And in case you were wondering what a day in the life is like while I'm researching at work:

Breast play 

This one is obvious. The reason so many people like watching lactation and breastfeeding videos is because it's breast-centric - everybody loves boobs. The milk dribbling down faces and tits and soaking through shirts just has its own aesthetic appeal. No shame in that! Take this clip, for example:  

Most people who are a little freaked out by the concept of adult nursing at first wonder what, exactly, human milk tastes like. Luckily, someone on the internet has already done the hard work for you:  

Regardless of your interest in breastfeeding and lactation, there's one important thing to remember: Just like with any other bodily fluid, breast milk can carry disease - so make sure you're fluid bonding responsibily.
