    I voted yes before I read you clarification. I’d let him taste to fulfill his curiosity of what it tastes like, but not for sexual reasons. I’m not really down with mommy/baby role play…

    I once jokingly put a drop on my finger and asked my husband if he wanted a taste. His exact words were “Blech.”

    So that would be a no. But he otherwise is very into my boobs.

    If he really wanted to, sure. Hell, I’m actually mildly curious about it and may try it myself in the future.

    ETA: I don’t think it would be sexual though, more out of curiosity than anything.

    @KatyElle:  Yeah, as into my boobs as my DH is, I think I would get the same reaction. 

    I really wouldn’t be comfortable with it. To be honest (and I know some people judge about this, but whatever), I’m still struggling with the idea of having my breasts, which I’ve always thought of as something sexual, suddenly being what I use to feed my child. I know it’s natural, but it’s still difficult for me to separate the two. I’m currently pregnant, and as much as I struggle now with that whole concept, having DH drink any of my milk would be taking it a step further – it would be way too much for me.

    @Wonderstruck:  Yeah, I felt that way when I was pregnant, too- no judgment! My plan was to pump & feed all meals. I ended up really enjoying it, though (and only pumping at work), so you may feel differently once you’re in that situation. Either way, best of luck!

    I have breastfed two babies and my husband did try it.  I read somewhere that most dads do.

    @Wonderstruck:  My grandmother felt that way and didn’t breastfeed any of her 3 children actually. She was on a military base in Germany with my grandfather when she had her first and people there always breastfed unless they had a medical condition preventing it because they were so poor after the war. The doctors were very confused about why she wouldn’t because she was perfectly healthy but she just wasn’t comfortable with a baby being attached to her boob.

    I’m pretty sure DH will accidently get a taste when we’re being intimate even if he doesn’t express the desire to do it. We’re not PG yet but we’ve discussed it and I’m pretty sure he’d like to give it a try.

    I wouldn’t let him suckle but sure. I tasted my own once. I know people are probably shuddering but I heated it up for Baby G and I tested it out on my wrist to see if it was warm and not hot and I thought “Hmm I wonder what it tastes like.” So I lickex the drop off of my wrist and went on with my day. I don’t feel its any grosser than drinks cows milk. The only difference is a person produces it, specifically I did. If you think about it most of us probably have drank from ours mothers. Its no different and probably really intimate if Hubby does it.

    I’m not pregnant yet (despite my best efforts) but when we do have a LO I know curiosity will get the best of me and I will taste it. Probably off my finger or wrist like a PP described. I am the type of person who will probably try to convince DH to taste it too. He will likely be horrified and refuse. lol. Under no circumstances would I allow him to suckle or incorporate the act of breast feeding into our sexual play. To me that’s just icky. But that’s just me. I despise when people sexualize breast feeding. Like those onesies for baby boys that say “I’m a Boob Man” or “I Heart Boobies”…..ugh I CRINGE!!!

    Tasting breast milk does not equal sexy times in my book.

    I don’t imagine him finding it sexual, but if he was curious what it tasted like, sure.
