Can Adult Breastfeeding Strengthen Our Marriage or Relationship?


Adult breastfeeding is a practice where one partner provides nourishment from their breasts to the other partner. There are several reasons why it can strengthen marriages and relationships.

Firstly, adult breastfeeding has been found to be a highly effective method for increasing intimacy between partners. The physical act of breastfeeding triggers the release of oxytocin, also known as the "cuddle hormone," which promotes feelings of love, trust and bonding. This can lead to increased emotional connection and closeness between partners.

Secondly, adult breastfeeding has been shown to be a powerful tool for reducing stress and anxiety in both partners. The release of oxytocin during breastfeeding can help to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which can have a calming effect on the mind and body. This can lead to improved mental health and greater emotional stability within the relationship.

Finally, adult breastfeeding has been found to be a highly effective method for promoting communication between partners. Because the practice requires mutual trust, respect and openness, it can encourage both partners to communicate their needs, desires and feelings more effectively. This can lead to greater understanding, empathy and connection between them.

Adult breastfeeding has been found to be a highly effective way for couples to strengthen their marriage or relationship. By increasing intimacy, reducing stress and promoting communication, this practice can help partners to deepen their emotional connection and build a stronger foundation for their future together.

"Sometimes we just do it in front of the TV."
