Erotic lactation, known as Lactophilia is an person that gets turned on from breastfeeding. The terms adult suckling, adult nursing, and adult breastfeeding have similar meanings. Some partners shares an adult nursing relationship where an adult feeds from the woman’s breasts. A couple in an exclusive relationship can be called a nursing couple.
"Milk fetishism" and "lactophilia" are the official diagnostic terms for this specific fetish.
Both the breasts and nipples are highly erogenous zones, both for men and women. Nipple and breast stimulation of women is a common aspect of arousal. The nipples on males are not as sexualized as females. Humans are the only primates that have females with permanently enlarged breasts after puberty; other primate species only are enlarged during pregnancy.
Scientist guess that the breasts grew as a frontal counterpart to the buttocks when primates became upright in order to attracting males.
Another possibility assumes that the offspring had a better chance of survival if the mother’s were to receive physical pleasure from nursing their babies.
Breasts may also have evolved as a way for men to note a woman had reached maidenhood, at which time she would begin to compete to sexually selection to present to men.
Breasts may also have developed to act as a cushion for infant heads, are a signal of fertility, or elevate the head in breastfeeding to prevent suffocation.
Unintended milk flow (galactorrhea) is often caused by nipple stimulation and it is possible to reach normal milk production exclusively by suckling on the breast. Nipple stimulation of any sort is noted in reducing the incidence of breast cancer.
Because female breasts and nipples are generally regarded as an important part of sexual activity its common for couples to go from licking breasts to suckling milk.
In 2005 the London The Sunday Times gave a report of a survey that showed that in 25 to 33% of all couples, the male partner had drank his wife's breast milk. The men did so on purpose as an act of affection.
Since the European Middle Ages, a multitude of subliminally erotic visionary experiences of saints have been passed on in which breastfeeding plays a major role. One prominent example is the Lactatio of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.
While lactation in pornography, it is considered taboo because of its association to incest and children. Most breast pictures are without milk both in and out of pornography.
Infantilism is the fetish of a partner taking on the role of suckling baby. Being pampered by “Mommy”, wearing diapers, soiling and discipline and reward may also be involved.
BDSM can involve breastfeeding a submissive partner as a reward or milking, the taking of submissive milk at the will of the dominant.
As a woman that lactates I can tell you that I used to be VERY self conscious of it ‘getting in’ a man’s mouth until I noticed that some men would suck on my breasts even hard. It dawned on me that they were trying to get the milk out! When I finally did warn a lover to be careful lest he get a mouth full of milk I was happily informed that the spray of sugar was a welcome treat. I don’t ever recall a lover being turned off by it and since then I’ve no longer worried about it being something to be embarrassed about.
There were times during my dancing years that I would spray milk across the room as a ‘trick’. It was usually met with enthusiasm and a request to do it again or I was asked that I spray some into a glass for them to drink. I didn’t find that part to be sexy though I adore watching a man suckle and enjoy the sweet tips of my nipples as part of foreplay and sex. It’s something for my lovers and not something for public consumption though I know plenty of dancers and nurse maids that sell their milk to both men and women who enjoy this delicacy.
One lover in particular comes to mind when I think of this. A favorite position of K’s was to squeeze and need my breasts until my milk drown as I rode his dick. At first I didn’t pay him any more attention than usual except this one time when we were making love by candle light. With eyes open I excitedly watching my milk stream down his lips while he lapped at it like a man dying of thirst. From that night on this scene always pushed me over the edge to a fabulous orgasm. The turn on came from the visual of the white milk on his beautiful chocolate skin and in the naughty feeling of doing something others may think disgusting but that we both found bliss in. These days I’m proud of my sexual quirk and happily share my treat with any lover who is interested in getting a little extra calcium in their diet.
