I was part of that site. Actually that site went down over a year ago. Not enough participation so we let it go.<br><br>
After that the domain name can go to anyone unfortunately.

Oh, really? I didn't know that! I didn't realize it had been that long since I'd been there. That's such a shame! That was a great site. There are a whole bunch of breastfeeding-related sites out there that still have links to moms4milk! I emailed a couple of them about the porn site.

I edited the title of the thread, since I guess it isn't the result of hacking after all.<br><br>
Why would a porn site want the name moms4milk?

Because lots of men (and women) have a lactation fetish. On one hand I hate that it's sexualizing lactation, but on the other hand, once my supply is established I've got lactation shoots lined up at $2500 a piece! Not exactly money I want to pass up (new baby and all).<br><br>
Slightly OT, I think the lactation fetish is partly a result of so many men being deprived of the breast so early in life <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Online mostly. I do some adult modeling, and this particular person was looking for pregnant and lactating models so I contacted him. I was actually supposed to do a pregnant shoot with him (for $2000) but we had a family emergency come up. Honestly lactation shoots have to be high priced, most require that you don't nurse for 24 hours beforehand so you have a good supply for the shoot.

CryPixie, don't you have an ethical problem with lactation classified as pornography? You're willing to contribute to that for money? You admitted that it sexualizes the breast, and the sexualization of the breast is, in my opinion, the greatest threat to breastfeeding in this country. When people get the impression that breasts are for sex, they think it's gross to feed babies with them. If lactation is pornographic, then breastfeeding must be pedophilia, right?

That's a difficult question for me. On one hand I'm against the sexualization of breasts because they are meant for nourishment. On the other hand I fully believe that the entire body is sexual. I think the real problem is that our society can't see breasts (and the body in general) as both functional and sexual without some form of corruption of one of the two. The greatest threat to breastfeeding isn't,IMO, sexualization of the breasts, its the idea that they can't be sexual and functional at the proper times... well, that and lack of education and support.<br><br>
As far as lactation>porn = breastfeeding>pedophilia.... I think it would take a sick mind to believe that (and I know some do). That's sad.<br><br>
Does it bother me personally? No because I view breasts as multifunctional. If I viewed them as strictly for breastfeeding, then yes it would bother me.

Even if it doesn't bother you personally, doesn't it bother you to contribute to it, KNOWING that there is cultural confusion about the purpose of breasts, which is undermining support for breastfeeding?

I was wondering how you are gonna go 24 hours without nursing. I can't even go TWO hours! :LOL And my DS is 13 months old.<br><br>
You should tell them that not nursing 24 hours beforehand could mess up your supply, especially if you are just getting started. In the early weeks of nursing, you will have plenty of leakage, don't worry! :LOL<br><br>

edited to add that you should bring your baby with you to the shoot. It would be a real shame to waste too much of that mama milk. In the early weeks when I would get engorged, I would express my milk into a bowl for my dogs -- it is just too precious to waste!

Here's what I think the problem is: people are exposed to so many more images of breasts being used in a sexual way than breasts being used for breastfeeding, they end up with the perception that a breast's primary function is sexual, and that women "also use them for breastfeeding." What we need is for images of breastfeeding to become predominant, so that people will learn that breastfeeding is what breasts are for (though they can also be sensual, as any part of the body can be). We need to increase the number of breastfeeding images people are exposed to, <b>while decreasing the number of "breasts as sex object" images!</b>
