Physicians have agreed for years that breastfeeding is the most appropriate way for an infant to get proper nutrition. Society is also far too prudish about it in general—no woman should ever be shamed for feeding her child. YouTube star Tasha "Spiritual Tasha Mama" Maile has been a positive voice speaking out against stigmatizing this natural and wholesome act.
Until, that is, Maile decided to post videos that seemed to show her boundary between what's natural and what's appropriate is pretty damn blurred.
She addressed the question of whether she has sex while breastfeeding, because she's apparently that one in a million woman who will not answer that question with "none of your fucking business, weirdo."
Sex is natural and healthy and appropriate between consenting adults, sure. Most consenting adults will also agree it's best if it happens nowhere near a conscious and feeding baby, because what the hell.
Tasha Maile is not among that group, and she defends her point of view. Let's go to the transcript.
We are pleasure beings, we are meant to enjoy sex and pleasure and all things orgasmic and all things can be orgasmic.
I’ve had a lot of people ask me if it’s okay to breastfeed and have sex. From what I remember, I remember sleeping with my ex-husband and my son was on me breastfeeding and we would have sex from behind or something.
There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever.
Solid points there, of course. Maile is right that making love is great. She's right that it's okay to enjoy it all. But if she loses you with the whole "breastfeed in the front/party in the back" thing, well, you are not alone.
She's had viewers accuse her of being inappropriate at the very least and committing incest at the worst.
And then there's the whole question of what man wants to get it on so badly that he won't find himself thoroughly creeped out by his partner giving junior a midnight snack while he's slipping it in?
There's horny and then there's willfully blind and deaf to the situation.
Fine, okay. If we're in no position to judge how Tasha Maile should live her life, we'll definitely side-eye her dudes if they're truly okay with this.
Maile can apparently do what she wants—no matter how much her statements equivocating about how it's all so organic and natural end up feeling like a recruitment pitch for a hippie sex cult.
