An Atlanta woman is preaching the benefits of adult breastfeeding after experiencing the "magical bond" of the ABR (Adult Breastfeeding Relationship) life. Jennifer Mulford, 36, told the always reliable Sun that she's found a "partner for life" in Brad Leeson, who believes the intimate act of milk consumption will also help him out in the gym.
"When I read about the bond breastfeeding could create between two people I was envious," said Mulford, who was working as a bartender when she decided to hit the pause button. "I have always enjoyed my breasts being touched during sex more than anything else, so I knew I would enjoy it." Mulford was single at the time of her breastfeeding revelation, inspiring her to actively search for guys online who might be into her newfound passion.
At first, the search seemed doomed. "I started to think I'd never get to try adult breastfeeding," Mulford said. As is so often the case with adult breastfeeding love matches, the answer was right in front of her all along: her old boyfriend, Brad Leeson. "We were talking, and Brad told me he had a thing for big-breasted women and that size had always been a factor in his relationships," Mulford said. "I thought it was the perfect time to bring up adult breastfeeding and see if he'd be interested."
Leeson was indeed interested. "We both wanted the same thing out of the relationship—a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve," Mulford said. As Mulford hasn't recently given birth, the relationship is currently a 'round-the-clock commitment. If Leeson isn't around to help her dry feed, she uses a pump or her own hand to trick her body into thinking someone is feeding. "Nights have been a struggle because Brad sleeps so peacefully, but we manage to cope—until he falls asleep latched onto me, which is beautiful," Mulford told the Sun.
For all the health-conscious readers out there, settle down. According to Dr. William Sears, a pediatrician and author, the "smarter fats" found in breast milk are awesome:
The special kind of fat in human milk is important to brain development. As newborn babies grow, the nerves are covered with a substance called myelin which helps the nerves transmit messages to other nerves throughout the brain and body. To develop high-quality myelin, the body needs certain types of fatty acids–linoleic and linolenic–which are found in large amounts in human milk.
Of course, Dr. Sears is talking about babies, but what the hell do I know?
