Blog neglected!

Hey,

It’s been a while since I posted on here so I thought I’d update you all in my journey.

My baby has just turned 1 and she weaned herself off by the time she was 10 months. I have to say I’m feeling rather sad about the situation as I’ll never experience breastfeeding again. No more babies for me.

Just lately I have been thinking about boosting my milk supply back up as I’d like to store some breast milk up to either donate to premie’s or sell on. Like I’ve said, over and over breast milk is full of goodness and I’m not willing to give up my liquid gold just yet!

The plan is to pump 15 minutes a side every  4 hours to get the supply going again. Hardwork around the 3 and 1 year olds but will be so much worth my time.

I’m  not sure how long you can keep a supply going but I’m willing to do it as long as possible.

Lactophilia

I have recently found out the name for the fetish.

Lactophilia

A sexual fetish for lactating breasts and breastfeeding

I didn’t realise that there was such a big community out there for this fetish. There are forums, chatrooms, porn sites and even blogs about Lactophilia. It seems to go from men/women watching liquid gold being expressed, to wet nursing adults!

I suppose the curious question would be why? Why do they have a fetish for this? Did their childhood experiences or anything in particular happen in their life to cause this? Were they breastfed when they were younger? Who knows.. I would really love to know the answers but generally everyone lives differently so I doubt there would be a definite answer.

I have been in contact with someone for two days now. We have exchanged many emails, texts and even calls. When we first started talking they wanted to buy my freshly pumped milk from me. After many chats we come to the conclusion they would actually like to watch the milk I am selling to them be expressed in person. I have no problems with this. I have expressed milk in front of family and friends in the past anyway so I am quite comfortable with this. Money still needs to be discussed but it looks as if this will be going ahead. Wish me luck!

A Tale of Liquid Gold

First Pick up.

I have someone travelling quite some distance to come and buy 3oz from Me. They want it freshly pumped in to a milk bag. Not sure how I feel about meeting them in person but we will see how it goes.

As it goes for the contact sending me bottles to fill, I still haven’t heard back from them. I am starting to think maybe that one won’t be going anywhere. I have emailed them this evening to see if they are still interested.

I also had someone else contact me this afternoon looking to buy. They asked if I’d be willing to pump in front of them for a bit of extra money. I’m inclined to say yes – won’t make any difference to me.

Lastly, I am still in contact with the person wanting to wet nurse. We have been exchanging emails for a couple of weeks now. We are going to meet in person for a chat only. I’m very curious to know what goes through these people’s minds.

Still waiting.

Although I have had many replies, mainly from grown men who want to suckle from the source, I still haven’t made any sales on my excess milk supply.

One contact is looking into sending me bottles to fill. He is bidding on an item on eBay! The plan is for him to send me the bottles, I fill them, then send them back. What ever he gets up to with the liquid gold is up to him, as long as I haven’t got to know about it.

What I’ve found in my experience of researching buying/selling of breastmilk is although most sites are set up for Mums, they also feature categories specifically for “Men wanting milk”. They aren’t all creepy people who want to fulfill a fetish either, there are gym buffs looking for benefits of breast milk for muscle gain and even others who are unwell and looking to gain strength. Even though there are not any proven benefits from human milk in adults, it is still a very popular market on the internet.

Aswell as selling breastmilk, there are posts requesting donations. I agree, the gift of giving to a newborn or a premie for whatever reason would be the ideal option. Unfortunately this is alot harder process. Both need health checks but when donating it is really hard to find places to take the milk etc. Also, needing the money, I’m doing what I feel is best for me and my family.

I’ll update again when things move forward. Please share as well as give your comments, good or bad below. Thank you.
