Some people complained about the noises that the couple were making while breast feeding.
“shake the taboo” of adult breastfeeding
It is hoped that this documentary would help to “shake the taboo” of adult breastfeeding.
Following the backlash, Shawn and Lana had this to say in response.
Shawn said, ‘It’s completely different [to breastfeeding in public]. It’s just a normal way of connecting with the other person when we grow up”.
‘When we grow up we explore sex and when we explore sex there are many other ways of connecting with another person”.
‘Breastfeeding between adults creates a really strong bond that helps an understanding of the other person and feel a deeper love because you’re not only exchanging the milk but getting the energy that comes from the other person”.
His partner Lana also added, “Women’s’ breasts have always been sexual, men have always like women’s breasts, it’s always been the case. You can compare it to feet – a lot of people like feet and have feet fetishes which is way bigger than breastfeeding but we don’t go around hiding our feet and not wearing sandals”.
In other recent news, Irish priest, Fr Richard O’Connor has called children dressing up as demons or devils “a complete betrayal to the Christian faith”.
“It shows a complete betrayal of the Christian faith, on this particular point”, he said.
