Do Guys Get Turned On By Breastfeeding
“Breastfeeding is one of the most natural things in the world for mothers. It’s also one of the hardest things for many women to do without some kind of help or support. This can make breastfeeding a bit more difficult than it needs to be, but there are ways around this problem (such as using nursing bras) if you want to go through with it. For other men, however, seeing the mother-child dyad enjoying each other may be sexually exciting. Leaking breasts may be a sexual “”turn-on”” just as they may be a sexual “”turn-off.”” If your partner has never expressed interest before about watching you nurse, he may find that it turns him on quite a lot. He might even start expressing his own desire to see you breastfeed. The fact that you’re doing something so natural could turn him on enough on its own!
If you’re interested in learning more about male sexuality, I highly recommend reading Sexology 101: A Sourcebook of Basic Knowledge by David Ley. In chapter five he addresses the topic of breastfeeding, which is very interesting because he includes both positive and negative aspects of the practice. He explains why men seem to have such strong reactions to female breasts during sex. Some guys will become aroused simply from looking at them, while others get turned off completely. He then goes into detail explaining what happens when a woman nurses her baby. There are some physiological reasons behind this phenomenon, although it seems that the main reason for men getting aroused is due to the connection between the man and the child. Ley concludes that since we don’t actually produce milk ourselves, men who enjoy breast feeding shouldn’t feel guilty about their desires.
On the other hand, some men may find that leaking breasts are a sexual “”turn-off,”” especially if they’ve had problems with erectile dysfunction. They may not be able to get an erection, or once they do, they may experience pain rather than pleasure. One way around this is to use lube to lessen the discomfort. Another option would be to ask your doctor if Viagra can help you out with this issue. You should also try to avoid situations where you’ll be exposed to large amounts of estrogen; these include being near pregnant women and/or taking birth control pills. Also keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that men who aren’t comfortable with breastfeeding won’t ever be attracted to the sight of it — it just means that it’s probably not going to work well for them.
The point here isn’t necessarily to encourage people to stop nursing altogether, but instead to show that it’s possible for anyone to have any reaction at all to breastfeeding. As long as you know what you like and don’t like, you can always decide how far you want to take it. Many women choose to continue nursing after having children, while some will give up the practice entirely. Either choice is perfectly fine, and it really comes down to personal preference.
In addition to those mentioned above, there are also many articles online discussing the subject of whether men get turned on by breastfeeding. Here are three examples, two of which were written by me:
1) Do Men Enjoy Looking At Breasts During Sex? – Women Talk Ezine
2) Is It Possible To Become Physically Attracted To Nursing Mothers? – Mumsnet Answers
3) Male Response To Seeing Breast Feeding While Having Sex With Partner – AskMen [No Longer Available]
Another thing to consider is that some men may enjoy seeing another man naked. Just as women may enjoy viewing certain types of pornography, so too may men. When it comes to porn, what usually excites men is dominance over women, rough sex, and bondage. These are all elements that can be incorporated into breastfeeding scenarios, making it a great form of erotic entertainment.
Keep in mind that breastfeeding alone does not automatically qualify as pornography, though. Even if a couple enjoys breastfeeding together, it still depends on the type of stimulation used. Pornography involves only visual stimulation, while masturbation uses physical stimulation along with mental arousal. Masturbation works best when combined with self-pleasure techniques, including role play. We tend to think of breast feeding as part of foreplay, but it’s important to remember that it can stand on its own if done properly.
As noted earlier, it’s important to understand that a man’s inability to orgasm during intercourse doesn’t mean he won’t enjoy the act itself. However, you may need to tweak things a little in order to accommodate his lack of ability. Try to focus more on teasing him mentally, plus perhaps incorporating some light touching of his thighs or chest. Orgasms often involve stimulating several areas simultaneously, so you may want to experiment with different methods until you find one that works for both partners.
What I’m trying to say here is that it’s okay to change things up sometimes. Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t been successful yet. Keep experimenting until you find something that makes both parties happy. And don’t forget that masturbation can be fun for couples of all genders. Masturbation can serve as a good bridge towards achieving orgasms during intercourse, so don’t overlook it!
