1/6Why do some people have breast milk fetish?
Though it is rarely talked about, it isn’t uncommon. Erotic lactation has only seen an increase in demand over the past few decades. In 2005, a survey conducted by a London weekly revealed that up to 33 per cent of partners had suckled on their wives’ breasts. When breasts are seen as an important sexual organ, adult suckling isn’t really surprising, so much so that experts can now categorize a relationship as being an adult nursing relationship (ANR).
2/6What is lactophilia or milk fetishism?
WHAT IS LACTOPHILIA OR MILK FETISHISM? Both lactophilia and milk fetishism are medical terms that are types of paraphilia, that is sexual conditions of abnormal or extreme desires. These terms are used for disorders that belong to ICD-10 and DSM-IV.
4/6What is unintended milk flow?
WHAT IS UNINTENDED MILK FLOW? Once a nipple gets stimulated, it can lead to an unintended milk flow, medically known as galactorrhea. In fact, it is possible for the breasts to produce milk exclusively by suckling and stimulation. There’s no need of a pregnancy to induce the production of breast milk, if suckling and stimulation are done in a certain way.
5/6Research on lactophilia
RESEARCH ON LACTOPHILIA: There has been very little empirical research on lactophilia. However, Journal of Sexual Medicine led by Dr. Magnus Enquist, gave some interesting insights about the behaviour and preferences of lactophilic people. Of their respondents, 71 per cent said that they had a fetish for both pregnancy as well as lactation. Around 14 per cent said that they just had a pregnancy fetish while merely 11 per cent said that they had only lactation fetish. Only 4 per cent said that they did not have either fetish and hence, they were excluded from further research.
