YouTube Star: Yes, I Breastfeed WHILE I Make Love!
Tasha Maile is one of many celebrities who wants to normalize breastfeeding.
The YouTube star most certainly believes that new mothers should feel free to lower their shirts and provide sustenance to their children in any public setting.
However, Maile stands apart from others who share this belief because she also believes new mothers should readily provide this same sustenance to their children in the most private of settings.
That is, when they’re making love to their husbands.
About two years ago, this vlogger shared a controversial video titled “Do I Have Sex While Breastfeeding?”
(SPOILER ALERT: The answer was yes.)
In the clip, which has been viewed nearly four million times since it was published in September of 2015, the San Diego native remembered how she did the naked deed with her husband on at least one occasion…
… while nursing her son at the same time.
“We are pleasure beings, we are meant to enjoy sex and pleasure and all things can be orgasmic,” Maile explained in the video, adding:
“I’ve had a lot people ask me if it’s okay to breastfeed and have sex… I remember sleeping with my ex-husband and my son was on me breastfeeding and we would have sex from behind or something.”
That’s better than if the two were titty f-cking, we guess.
“There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever,” said the mother of three boys at the time.
Not long after this unusual viewpoint was expressed, Maile (who is known online sometimes as “Spiritual Tasha Mama”) came under fire for her inappropriate bedroom actions.
Some critics even referred to sex-while-breastfeeding as being incestuous.
In a follow-up defense this past May, Maile elaborated on her stance.
She also explained what actually went down between herself, her baby and her husband.
“My 3-month-old would not allow me to put him down at all. So he was attached to me 24/7. And he was always using me as a binky at night,” Maile said.
“So we did it while he was sleeping next to me or on me. It had nothing to do with my child. My child was not in the act of what we were doing.”
Fast forward to July 3 and Maile’s recent appeared on the UK show This Morning.
“I think many other parents have had sex in the same room that their children are sleeping in,” Maile said in her defense.
When host Holly Willoughby quizzed Maile about whether she has intercourse while her son was awake, she responded:
“Even if the baby is awake and off to the side . . . If the baby is OK, they’re not judging you.”
No, this is true: the baby is not judging you.
But someday the baby may grow up and be Googling you. And you better be prepared to pay for many years of his therapy.
