Well, I'm not proud of it, but there's a certain amount of "ick" to my response as well.There's nothing logical about it, and it's not based on reason, although I could probably scrounge and come up with some semi-logical baloney. Let me see if I can figure it out.It's pretty gut level. I'm not a mother, but I was breastfed. I think it has something to do with the intimacy factor, because it doesn't feel the same as my reaction to eating dog meat or live squid.I think it's because there's this general idea in my culture (which is, perhaps, roughly the same as yours), that breasts are for sexual intimacy unless it's a case of maternal/infant intimacy, and then it's okay and semi-sacred. But only between a particular mother and her particular child, unless there's a milk bank or an emergency involved.See? I told you it wasn't logical.Then there's the whole thing of body fluids and whether or not it's pastuerized, so if you baked, say, muffins, using breast milk as part of the liquid ingredients, I might try them, but if you offered me a breast milk smoothie, I'd probably decline.Oh, heck, I'll usually try anything once (except dog meat, which would almost be cannibalism, or live squid),so if you were being the perfect hostess I'd probably try either one. Unless you were sick.Long, rambling, and as honest as I can be.greet. ;o)
