Mum defends her decision to breastfeed her baby during sex.
Last year we shared the story of vlogger, Tasha Maile, who like all mums just wants the best for her babies and believes that breast really is best when it comes to feeding. Her youtube channel is full of advice on breastfeeding.
She encourages other mothers who also want to breastfeed to find support from similar women, and attend groups where they can discuss their decisions with like-minded people.
Tasha questions why sex is so taboo and admits to having sex while breastfeeding her son. She says we should enjoy it, “enjoy yourself. None of us would be here without sex. There is nothing wrong with it at all.”
Many people who have read this story, and others floating around the net accused Tasha of incest, and claim she is sexualising breastfeeding in a way that is totally not natural.
Comments at the time included -
“She wants viewers to believe this is a natural mother and child bonding while breastfeeding. However from the start this doesn’t appear to be natural but incestuous.”
“Breastfeeding is a natural, beautiful extension of the mother and child bonding. However this woman’s exhibitionism certainly takes away from the wonderful bonding between mother and child.”
One mum said, “Pooping is a natural thing… But I’m not going to shit and feed my baby at the same time… Sorry draw a line. Meal time is meal time. Sexy time is sexy time.”
“Having sex in front of your child is Not natural”
Some comments argued that DHS should be called as it is in fact very illegal.
“Illegal to let a child watch porn, but not illegal to have sex while a child is attached to you?? What is wrong with this world.”
“That has to be sexual abuse of some kind! There no way I could get aroused with my son anywhere near me.”
“This is why people get all squeamish about breastfeeding. Idiots like this who cross the line between natural and just sick. Having sex whilst holding your child is so wrong no matter their age.”
One comment pointed out, “I think she just gets off filming herself breast feeding.”
Another point of discussion was twiddling – Tasha enourages mum to let their child twiddle with the other nipple while feeding as it is a great distraction for them and they feed better. One commenter said, “Oh if your kids twiddle with your nipples let them! It distracts them into feeding while her child is fidgeting and focusing on the camera. No lady your kid is not distracted into feeding your kid wants to see what your doing so if you care out feeding your kid perhaps you need to switch off your camera and worry about actually feeding your kid instead of seeking attention. You are absolutely the wrong spokesperson for breastfeeding.”
Tasha argues that there is nothing perverted about breastfeeding at all. She reckons we all just need to loosen up! “Lighten up a bit.”
Tasha is STILL defending her choices
She recently spoke out to her critics telling those who are judging her to ‘get your panties out of a bunch’.
Tasha has clarified that her baby was sleeping at the time as he was ‘attached to me 24/7′, and urged people to stop judging her.
She said in her video: ‘Sex is a beautiful thing – I think we can all agree with that.’
She said her baby was ‘not involved’, but simply ‘there’.
‘If you actually listen to the video , my three-month-old would not allow me to put him down at all,’ she said.
‘[He was] attached to me 24/7.’
Tasha has said her child was sleeping at the time, and that it was time to put an end to judgment and shame.
‘Get your panties out of a bunch’.
Do you think this is purely just sexualising breastfeeding and is she being an “exhibitionist”?
