According to the New York Post, Jennifer, a mom who had children 20 years ago, has quit her job because she wants to start an adult breastfeeding relationship (also known as an Adult Nursing Relationship) with a guy named Brad.

She started searching for men who would be open to the idea of adult breastfeeding when she read about the pure joy it brought others. For some, chocolates and flowers do the trick, but for others, breastfeeding is the real treat in their lives. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

I read an interesting statistic which revealed that in worldwide Google searches "my husband wants me to breastfeed him" is a more popular search term than "my husband wants to separate" and "my husband wants a baby" - combined!

Jennifer and Brad need to induce lactation by dry-feeding and pumping her breasts every two hours, just as if she was feeding a baby.

People are quick to judge, but in this day and age, if these two people aren't causing any harm to anyone else, is this such a big deal?

As a woman - if your crush was interested in a 'nursing relationship', would you be willing to give it a try or does this just overstep the mark?
