Should Christian ANR couples share and educate or keep it private?

A recent conversation with an ANR aspirant precipitated this discussion. In the ANR world, there doesn’t seem to be an easy answer. Even pastors and Christian counselors and healthcare workers become apprehensive about sharing in an effort to bless. Personally, I no longer see that big a deal. When married, should I feel sufficiently close Continue reading Should Christian ANR couples share and educate or keep it private?

About one in three people secretly desires an ANR

I came across an article on some site that revealed that about 1 in 3 American men surveyed have fantasized about breast milk at least once. I’m pretty sure the ratio for women is at least the same because women are MUCH less comfortable expressing or exploring their sexuality, as communicated in the email from Continue reading About one in three people secretly desires an ANR

Breastfeeding shouldn’t be sexualized, critics fallaciously insist

Note the presupposition in this line of reasoning. The preconceived notion in this argument goes something like: breastfeeding is a special, intimate moment of bonding between mother and child. (That, it certainly is). But it further assumes that it must remain only between mother and child while it need not be confined to that dynamic. Continue reading Breastfeeding shouldn’t be sexualized, critics fallaciously insist

The Tale of the Cart and the Horse

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7 ESV) There is an old expression. Maybe you’ve heard it. Maybe you haven’t. It isn’t used much anymore. But it needs to be used more. The saying is “putting the cart before the horse.” This little gem of Continue reading The Tale of the Cart and the Horse

Let her nipples satiate you always: be secure, steadfast and strong in the Lord

“For many adult breastfeeders, traditional narratives of age or power play doesn’t enter their kink. Those that I spoke to did not mention wanting to feel like a child, or conversely, wanting to feel like a mother. The desire to revert back to childhood—common in adult babies—is also rarely mentioned on any adult breastfeeding sites. Continue reading Let her nipples satiate you always: be secure, steadfast and strong in the Lord

Breast milk is for babies, right?

“Milk that’s originally meant for baby cows? Love it. Milk that’s originally meant for baby goats? Like it. Milk that’s originally meant for baby humans? Ewwwww. WTF?” You can’t have it both ways. If drinking milk that’s originally designed for the young of your own kind is taboo, then a new word ought to be Continue reading Breast milk is for babies, right?

Lord, give us boldness to come out of the taboo closet

The Bible point-blank encourages ANRs but most people find them taboo. This adds to the intimidation one faces when coming out to a partner, family or friends about ANR desire. I don’t get how even believers do this when there’s no clear biblical prohibition against it. I’ve found some ANR skeptics who claim that if Continue reading Lord, give us boldness to come out of the taboo closet

Sexual desire is neither sinful nor scary – Skydiving part 2

While watching the Forensic Files recently, I was saddened to see an episode in which an apartment complex handyman – who grew up a pastor’s son – purposely intruded into a female college student’s apartment while she took a shower. As the semester went on, he intruded again and murdered her. While I realize he’s certainly not excused Continue reading Sexual desire is neither sinful nor scary – Skydiving part 2

‘My Husband Wants to Breastfeed:’ The Phenomenon Nobody Talks About But Everyone Googles | TIME Magazine

I disagree with some of the statements in this TIME magazine article, especially towards the end, but its title and first paragraph alone have earned it a link on this blog. (Caution: While this article is informative, not erotic in nature, it contains some words that may make some readers stumble. Biblical discretion is advised.)   Source: Continue reading ‘My Husband Wants to Breastfeed:’ The Phenomenon Nobody Talks About But Everyone Googles | TIME Magazine

Very legalistic statement from well-respected Christian site

There’s this very useful Christian website based in Colorado. Affiliated with a well-known conservative organization that promotes family values, the site provides many helpful resources to single Christians and young adults and I generally enjoy their gospel-centered articles but one day, I came across an unhelpful, unforgettable statement that I must call out. If you’re a Continue reading Very legalistic statement from well-respected Christian site

Simple

Welcome to our fifth of seven characteristics to help inform your search for an ANR-interested mate: simplicity, nearly synonymous with humility. This one gets a bad rap. There’s even a term that has been coined to mock simple folks. Simplicity in the sense of humility and unpretentiousness is highly looked upon in Scripture, however. Folks who desire an Continue reading Simple
