Adult Nursing Relationship - Word Definition

The most common type of ANR involves a woman breastfeeding a man, but it can involve anyone who is interested in the act.

ANRs are often seen as taboo because breastfeeding is usually associated with a mother and her child. However, the main appeal of an ANR is the intimacy and emotional bond that is created through the act of nursing and the skin-to-skin contact. The hormone oxytocin, which is found in breast milk, helps with bonding, reduces anxiety, and promotes relaxation.

Breastfeeding adults has become a more accepted practice in recent years and there are online communities that help connect people who want to participate in ANRs. It is also possible for ANRs to be incorporated into BDSM relationships, with the lactating partner being either submissive or dominant.
