A couple have opened up about their breastfeeding kink insisting it’s not “weird” and gets them in the mood for sex.
Lana Michaels, who met her boyfriend Shawn through a vegan dating app, says the practice is the perfect foreplay for them.
The mum-of-two who missed nursing her children so much she has started breastfeeding her boyfriend, who used to live in Scotland.
The duo will star in a new Channel 4 documentary, Breastfeeding my Boyfriend, about adult breastfeeding and discuss why they choose to breastfeed.
Lana, who used to work as a teacher, has a seven-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son from a previous relationship – and when they grew up, she missed breastfeeding them.
Lana explains she and Shawn first experimented with breastfeeding 18 months ago, and she argues it creates “physical energy” between them before they have sex, according to Mirror Online.
The show which is scheduled for Monday night at 10pm (October 25), will reveal how breastfeeding has become such a key part of their sex life and Lana admits she’d find it difficult to stop.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: “I breastfed my children and I really missed breastfeeding and the feeling of it.”
Lana explained she breastfed her son for eight months and her daughter for two years – so when they grew up, she was left wishing they were still babies.
“I don’t want to have another baby and my children are way too old to feed now but I liked the idea of breastfeeding with Shawn,” she explained.
Just before the pandemic, the couple left the south of England for a new life in Murcia, Spain – where they started experimenting with their sex life.
The pair, who have an open relationship, got the idea for adult breastfeeding after having a foursome with another married couple.
“I’d been sucking from another woman when I started feeling milk in my mouth. That burned up the sexual idea of breast milk connected with sex and it went from there,” Lana explained.
After the experience, Lana researched breastfeeding online and learned she could restart her milk supply by taking herbal supplements.
She gave them a go, and three days later, her breasts started flowing with milk – so Shawn latched on and gave it a try.
“We have sex about five times a week, and Shawn breastfeeds a couple of times in a week,” Lana said, explaining she’s gone up a cup size to 34D since she started lactating again.
Shawn says being breastfed is both arousing and relaxing.
“The energy is flowing between us when I breastfeed… it can lead up nicely to sex,” he said.
The couple, who are open about their kinks, say breastfeeding is just one of many things they do in the bedroom.
“We play a daddy and a girl, a doctor and patient or teacher and student. We also go to swingers’ clubs.”

They also want to show the world that adult breastfeeding isn’t “weird” and that there shouldn’t still be taboos around it.
“There is more negative impact in slaving an animal like a cow than drinking human milk which is made for us,” Shawn argued.
“There is no cruelty or pain in adult breastfeeding. She gets pleasure, I get pleasure, and I get nutrition. She is happy, I am happy, so what’s the problem?”
Some research has suggested there can be health benefits to drinking breastmilk as an adult, including treating arthritis and Crohn’s disease and autism, but research isn’t conclusive.
In 2015, a study from Queen Mary University of London found that many of the professed benefits to drinking breastmilk as an adult don’t stand up.
But for Shawn and Lana, the practice is something they’re going to continue.
The pair, who set up a porn business when their plan to teach in Spain was scuppered by lockdown, charge their fans £10 per month for five videos a week – some of which feature Shawn breastfeeding.
In total, the couple have 700 subscribers and 7,000 users who pay for individual videos.
Lana reckons the platform, Lana on Demand, has increased her confidence.
She said: “As a girl, I was really embarrassed about my body and at school, I wouldn’t even get changed in the communal changing rooms, but I now feel a lot more confident.”
