What is Adult Breastfeeding (ABF)?
What is the difference between Adult Breastfeeding and an Adult Nursing Relationship? Is breastfeeding adults possible?
For an “Adult Nursing Relationship” (ANR) the “relationship” aspect plays a much bigger role–sometimes to such an extent that it is considered a “lifestyle.” One challenge ANR seekers often face is finding someone who understands the level of commitment and emotional investment involved, rather than someone who wants a bit of Adult Breastfeeding (ABF) here and there. Ultimately, an ANR is a committed relationship between partners in which ABF is elevated to a major source of intimacy and bonding. When lactation is involved, partners must have regular nursing sessions (often multiple times a day) in order to maintain a steady flow of milk. Although nursing sessions may be erotic and lead to sex, many ANR participants report intense emotional urges to nurture and be nurtured.
“Adult Breastfeeding” (ABF) simply describes the act of breastfeeding between adults. It may be part of a casual relationship or a long-term relationship. There may be one partner or multiple partners involved. It may be an incidental phase or a long-term goal (re-lactation or induced lactation). It may be sexual, part of fetish play, or not. It may be a significant aspect of a relationship or it may just be an element of foreplay. The term ABF really carries no connotations of a specific type of relationship...

Forms of ABF Relationships
Some forms of ABF involve financial arrangements for one to suckle from their partner (adult wet nursing). Forms of adult entertainment use breastfeeding as a form of reward in a BDSM arrangement. Other forms of domination may use force feeding as a punishment for misbehavior.
