A Coaching Question: 'Can I Breastfeed My Husband?'
the people I'm helping as a personal development coach and
consciousness guide (face to face, not life coaching online)
has recently had her first child.
In the course of a
recent session the following conversation took place:
"Soren, I noticed that you have written something about
breastfeeding on your blog ..." (Long pause).
that's right, I did," I answered by way of encouraging her to
"And I know that you're very open minded ...
in fact I think you're the most open minded person I know,"
"Yeah, well, that's why
I'm asking you this. I know you're not an expert on the
subject or anything, but, well, it's like this: My husband has
enjoyed that my breasts have grown, you know ... huge, like
this, and he sees me nursing our child, and now he wants to
breastfeed, too, and I'd actually like to let him!"
said this last part of her long sentence very fast and almost
"Yes, okay. So?"
Breastfeed My Husband? Well, Why Not?
"SOOO, is it okay?
Can I do that? Can I breastfeed my husband? I mean, is it
wrong? I don't know, it just seems, you know, strange. He's an
adult, after all. Not a child."
"Well, does he kiss and
suck your tits under normal circumstances, when there's no
milk in them?"
"So what do you feel would
be the problem of letting him kiss and suck them when there is
milk in them?"
"Well, nothing I suppose, when you put
it like that, but ..."
"Yes, but what?
"Nothing." She blushed and looked down at her hands in her
"It turns you on, is that it?"
"And did it turn you on when he did it back
when you didn't have milk?"
"Sure. Oh! Yeah, I see what
No, Really! Can I Breastfeed My
"Anyways, as far as I know adult breastfeeding is
not as uncommon as you might think. It's been done for
I've seen paintings and frescos from
antiquity showing it, and I seem to recall that it's also
mentioned in a positive way in the Old Testament, which is
Probably adult breastfeeding relationships
have existed for as long as humans have been mammals. It seems
a very natural thing to do."
"Yes, I suppose it does.
Only, you never hear about it."
"No, you're right. In
this culture during this time and age we have become so
alienated from our own bodies that many women shirk away from
even breastfeeding their own children. It's amazing - in a not
so cool way."
"So, you think it's all right then?
Breastfeeding your man? Can I breastfeed my husband?"
Apparently she wanted my explicit approval.
"Yes, I do
think breastfeeding your man is okay. In fact, if it turns out
you both like it I think it's more than okay. I'm sure it can
be a unique way for two people who love each other to connect.
The more and the deeper you connect with your lover the better
- for the both of you."
"Thank you, Soren. I had a
feeling you might understand. I can't talk to my friends, or,
I don't dare to talk to my friends, and I didn't know who else
to talk to. I feel so relieved for having talked about it."
And that was pretty much that.
Take on the
'Can I Breastfeed My Husband?' Question
Some time later, in a conversation with my girlfriend, I
recalled the question I'd been asked, so I asked her. I said:
"If someone asked you 'Can I breastfeed my husband?' what
would you answer?"
"Oh, I'd say: 'Why ever not?' she
said. She couldn't see any reason why you shouldn't. Needless
to say, that particular conversation was over pretty quickly.
Summing Up My Take on the
Breastfeed My Husband?' Question
In my opinion the
question 'Can I breastfeed my husband?' is moot. Of course you
can! Why ever not?
Breastfeeding your man - or woman if
that's who you've partnered up with - has been done for
millennia, I'm sure it's a wonderfully intimate way to connect
... and there might even be some physical, chemical and
emotional advantages to it that I don't know about.
already know that breastfeeding is one of the keys to a
healthy lifestyle for kids (and their moms), so why not for
adult kids (like men - or women), too? Since women
breastfeeding display fewer incidents of breast cancer than
women who have never breastfed, it could even be one of the
much sought for keys to longevity, too? Who knows? (Maybe I'll
look into that some other time).
For now, just a
greeting from the Personal Development Guy:May you
always have people you love around you, and may you always
have fun and joy trying out new things with them! :-)
