don't ask how I stumbled across this site, but I did: www.unhinderedliving.com...

that site seems a little quacktastic, but it includes a link to a story on Ananova, complete with a picture of a happy daddy nursing: www.ananova.com...

I'm not coming at this from an "OMG, that's not culturally acceptable!" standpoint, I honestly had no idea this was physically possible. anyone know any guy who has done this?

I've seen the apparatus that men strap on with a pair of teats to breastfeed cow's milk or even the mother's milk, to at least give the father the experience, pathetic though it may be.

But I have never seen a lactating man.

Actually, I don't want to. But it kind of explains what men's nipples are for I guess. In a nonsense kind of way.

I've seen some men who had boobs big enough to possibly be able to breast feed.
Ahem,count me out on that scene though.

Seems to be true, here is another thread also about this new occurance.

I didnt know it was possible til Magestica enlightened me.
Apparently its a gland or something that both male and female have. And a man can make himself lactate
The link up there is about this kinda of thing

Its bizarre.

I breast fed all three of my children for just over a year.I don't really want to imagine my husband breast feeding but I suppose that it if was a natural occurance we wouldn't think twice about it. It would make sence though really for them to do it as babies would benefit from gaining immunities to disease and allergies from both parents.

Aren't males supposed to be genetically incomplete females? That certainly would be reason enough for males to be able to lactate.

Dont get me started on how wrong it is.

*Looks out for Magestica*

That's really interesting, I was unaware of males having the ability to breastfeed.

This is pretty disturbing. Don't male babies also produce milk sometimes? I think it's due to estrogen in their system that make them produce milk...

...I'll just copy and paste my reply from a previous thread on this, found HERE

...after some discussion on whether or not it was 'acceptable' *sparked probably due to my off-the-cuff and not-at-all-serious reply about 70's porno music
*...



...okay...for a serious reply.

Hell yeah, if its for the benefit of my child, you bet I'd do anything and everything to ensure their wellbeing...any true man, any true FATHER, would stop at nothing to provide for their children. Screw what society may think, all I'd care about was that little precious getting whatever it needs.



Peace,
ALIEN

So you are saying that I can produce milk out of my manly teats?

If I could infact do this I'd bottle my man milk and sell it on ebay

It's amazing how many people don't know this
Although I have no hard evidence to back it up I heard quite a while ago that often men in prison camps during the war were known to begin lactating, something about their nutrition or lack thereof. Interesting if not a bit off putting.

You do have a way with words.



I will pose one question......
Why does a man have nipples?????

Answer......
Because your mother has breasts.

We are the product of two sexes. We get traits from both.
Females all have an underdeveloped penis, only we call it the clitorus. But just the same, it becomes erect when aroused.

I have heard that all fetuses are female in the first part of development. If someone can back this up with a link, or more info that would be great.

And if Lysergic ever gets his "man milk" up on ebay, I think I'll pass.

(not that there is anything wrong with that)
