Why this odd couple has opted for adult breastfeeding relationship
Jennifer Mulford, a native of Atlanta, has sparked social media outrage after claiming that she quit her job to breastfeed her 36 year old bodybuilder boyfriend.
She says she wanted to start an ‘Adult breastfeeding relationship’ with her boyfriend Brad Leeson after reading about the bond breastfeeding could create between two people.
Speaking to British newspaper The Sun (in an interview that was also published on the Daily Mail) Ms Mulford admitted to using dating sites to try and find a partner open to the practice, but eventually mentioned the idea to her former childhood sweetheart Brad.
Brad is said to be ‘excited’ about the health benefits as he is a ‘gym buff’.
“At that moment I knew that I had a partner for life… we both wanted the same thing out of the relationship – a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve,” he said.
SLAMMED ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Jennifer, a mother of a 20 year old girl, has to ‘dry’ breastfeeds Brad every two hours to induce lactation and fool her body into thinking she has had a baby.
In addition she claims she is also taking a herbal pill and added flax seeds to her diet which are thought to help with milk supply.
But despite this, Jennifer and Brad’s decision to publicly share their story has been slammed on social media, with many claiming the story is false, and others accusing Jennifer of ‘sexualising’ breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding is meant to rapidly grow a human baby so some believe a similar effect will happen to a fully grown human but there is no evidence to suggest that it can benefit grown men like in Brad’s case.
