As the globe celebrates World Breastfeeding Week from August 1 to 7, a medical expert. Mr. Johnbull Nnorom, has appealed to the menfolk to desist from the practice of sucking their wife’s breasts, saying that breast milk is meant strictly for infants.
Nnorom who spoke to Education Tell said it is a common practice for a lot of men to engage in sucking their wife’s breast during foreplay and sexual intercourse.
According to him, the men must not compete with the newborn babies who, he said, need the nutrients from the woman’s breast for their healthy upbringing at this early stage of their lives.
“You know that is a common practice in our society and most societies in the world for men to take delight in sucking their wife’s breast during sexual intercourse. The truth is that there is no benefit for them from the breast. The breast is meant for the newborn babies. They need it for proper and healthy growth.
“But you see many men say they enjoy their wife’s breast and they cannot do without it during sex. This is not right. There is nothing they are gaining from the breast. The nutrient is meant for the babies.

“The women who should understand this must encourage the men to desist from this act. The new born babies are the ones who need the milk from their mothers’ breasts not the men. I don’t know whether it is because some women call their hubby “baby” that is why they allow them to suck their breast,” Nnorom said.
