Suuuure? I guess it depends on how I get it I guess. Just getting a bottle of breast milk I might try, but if I know who the "provider" is or can make an image in my head of her, it might just be gross.
It's hard to predict a compulsive brain! Might just have to put this to the test at some point.
@TooWalrus: Well she isn't necessarily selling her breast milk, but that would for sure make it even worse. The scenario from the podcast is basically this: you are out to dinner with your wife and some friends. One of those friends just had a baby. The subject of breast milk comes up and before you know it you have a little glass of it to try.
My wife and I have some friends who recently had a baby. We know them very well, and they are close friends. I officiated their wedding. But the thought of drinking any of her breast milk HORRIFIES me.
I don't even like normal milk, why would I try human milk (best case scenario is it tastes like normal milk - but I still won't like it).
No. I don't even like normal milk that much. I don't care who it came from, why, or how, I wouldn't touch it.
Hah beat me to it! - must have loaded the page just before you published.
No. I'm sure there are all sorts of health benefits and all that shit. But there's a lot of shit out there that is good for my health that I don't take advantage of. And many of those alternatives are less gross. You know I'm a fan of breasts. I just don't want to think about their function because for some reason that makes me grossed out.
I once put it in my coffee by mistake. Made it taste sweet. Then tried it by itself.
That's awesome, I'm laughing out loud here. How did that happen?
With regards to the question at hand: I don't see why breast milk would be gross. That's between your ears.
Well I had it when I was a baby. Why not now? I'd probably only drink it from a partner or someone I didn't know. It would be weird to drink a friend's breast milk because then whenever I saw them I would just think "I've tasted a part of you....O_O!". It would be weird. Also the woman has to be healthy. I don't want to get sick.
I was horrified when this was actually being discussed (or disgust) on the bombcast. Maybe it's social conditioning, but the thought of drinking human breast milk as anything other than a baby just weeeeirds me out. Maybe it's because pretty much only infants have a legitimate claim to consuming it and anyone else is usually some weirdo/fetishist creep. Ok, I'm done with this conversation. I feel so weird for even thinking about this.
I don't know. I have seen a friend drink what he claimed to be his wife's breast milk once, and he puked all over the floor afterwards (granted, we'd drank quite a bit of alcohol prior). I am kinda curious about the taste.
Come to think of it, my cousin just had her baby last month. Maybe I should ask her for some...
