A father has credited drinking his wife’s breast milk with curing his erectile dysfunction.
In a trailer for TLC: Strange Sex, the man, known only as Jeff, explains how the experience turns him on so much it has rid him of his bedroom hang-ups.
Wife Michelle concedes her husband is a “boob guy”, while Jeff earnestly justifies his fetish: “There are individuals out there who get turned on by feet, turned on by spanking, turned on by cars. I get turned on by drinking my wife’s breast milk and making her pregnant.”
FYI, the new Oxford dictionary of English lists a definition of fetish as:
A form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body.
So far so, er, creepy.
Jeff’s, um, hobby began when the couple’s daughter was six-months-old and it continues with gusto a year-and-a-half later.
Michelle said: “I told him if I don’t like it you’re not going to be able to do it. But when Jeff started breastfeeding from me it was very erotic.
Jeff confirms: “The first time I breast fed from Michelle I just latched on and the milk started flowing. It was such a huge turn on I had to stop otherwise I would have finished right there.”
Michelle adds: “Breasts are not just for nurturing the baby, they are also very sensual, sexual objects and the milk flowing from your breasts does not have to be for your baby. If you have excess you might as well make use of it."

It’s not the first time breast milk has been attributed with life-giving qualities to those other than the intended recipients. In 2009 a breastfeeding mother began donating her milk to her own father in the hope it would boost his immune system after he was diagnosed with cancer.
Georgia Browne was so determined to keep her father alive she began expressing on a daily basis, providing milk for his morning cornflakes.
In 2005 a 59-year-old American revealed he had been drinking breast milk for four years in a bid to fight cancer, the BBC reported.
While some experts are sceptical about the health benefits of breast milk for cancer sufferers, there are several human milk banks in the US which supply adults holding prescriptions from their doctor.
Nevertheless, it's a beautiful thing, and on the back of the recent TIME magazine breastfeeding cover, here are 10 examples of breastfeeding in art history.
