    I wouldn’t let him suckle, ew, but if he was curious about the taste, sure, no problem.

    If he really wanted to taste it out of curiosity, I wouldn’t mind. Although I wouldn’t let him “drink” it because it seems odd to me.

    I’ve had breast milk by accident before. There is a short hilariously horrible story.

    Ex roommate had a baby, ex rommate started pumping. ran out of bottles. Decided to use my empty creamer bottle. Did not tell me. I bet you can guess the rest.

    Anyway, it’s not that big of a deal. I’d hand him the bottle if he was so interested.

    No kids yet, and this probably won’t be an issue for a loooong time, but I’d let him taste it as long as it was in some sort of container (like a bottle).

    Pretty creepy thinking about it, but I’m sure I’d let him.  Pretty sure the situation will never arise though, currently not planning on having kids!

    I don’t have a problem with it as long as the baby isn’t going hungry.

    I wouldn’t care. SO likes breasts & I can’t imagine he’ll stop after we have a little one. I’m honestly not sure if he’d be interested or not, but I wouldn’t mind if he did. (TBH, it’s quite possible he’s already gotten a taste & not noticed, as I still occasionally produce a drop or two :P )

    I could only breast feed for 2 months sadly, but my SO tasted it. No biggie to me, but that’s just me. *shrug* Plus, if you had a baby, you have a while before it dries up and if he’s a breast man, he’s going there anyway and will taste it. Heck, I thought mine had dried up, but learned with his love of my breasts, he’d made it come back.lol

    Hahahahaha sure why not. I’m never planning on having kids so it won’t come up but if it did, and he wanted to? Yeah, I see no problem there.
