Some things you just can’t make up, and the following story contains way too much information. You’ve been warned.
Atlanta, Georgia native Jennifer Mulford is making headlines in the US and overseas because of her obsession with breastfeeding. No big deal, right? Actually it is, because Jennifer ( age unknown) has a 20-year-old daughter. But it’s not her daughter she’s breastfeeding, it’s her boyfriend. Who’s 36.
Mulford says she read about adult breastfeeding relationships ( aka ABRs, yeah– there’s a term for it) while she was single and she immediately had to be involved in one.
“When I read about the bond breastfeeding could create between two people, I was envious,” Mulford tells Britain’s The Sun. “I have always enjoyed my breasts being touched during sex more than anything else, so I knew I would enjoy it.”
Jennifer looked high and low for the perfect partner, and even put ads on Craigslist in hopes of finding a partner, and that’s when she and old flame Brad Leeson reconnected and learned that they had something in common.
“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,” Jennifer says. “I thought it was the perfect time to bring up adult breastfeeding — and see if he’d be interested.”
She adds that they both wanted the same thing out of their relationship and that theirs is “a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve.”
The only thing is, Jennifer hadn’t breastfed since her daughter was a baby, so she and Brad have been trying to trick her body into thinking she’s pregnant in order for her to start producing milk again. The couple engages in a “dry feed” every two hours, according to the New York Post; and Jennifer has put her bartending career on hold because of it.
“I’ve taken a break from my job because I want to devote everything to making this work,” she said.
That everything includes waking up every two hours, pumping, taking pills and drinking herbal teas to help her start lactating.
Jennifer says that Brad is excited abut the health benefits he’ll get from her milk once it starts flowing again.
“Brad goes to the gym because it makes him feel good about himself knowing he is shape and living a healthy lifestyle,” she says.
Fortunately the act is something Jennifer wants to keep private ( no knock against moms who breastfeed their babies in public) and the couple has no plans on having kids together as both have children from previous relationships.
Jennifer says she wishes she could “tell the world” about her situation/fetish/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, but she doesn’t think people would understand, especially her mother.
It is, however, a good bet mom’s gonna hear about it any day now.
A post on Jennifer’s Facebook page on Wednesday read, “Yes, there is a post I am fully aware of going around please for my family’s privacy do not tag or post me in it as we will make another page for this. I have children on my page. You may or may not understand but it’s not for you too. Thank you and [heart emojis] you all!”
