Inducing lactation is the process of producing breast milk without a pregnancy or giving birth. Inducing usually involves herbal supplements and consistent breast stimulation. There are many good reasons why a couple may choose to add inducing lactation to their relationship. Here are a few.
I. Providing Pleasure
Nipples are highly sensitive and responsive to stimulation, making nipple-sucking a great way to give and receive pleasure.
Oxytocin, sometimes referred to as “the love hormone” has been found to reduce stress and increase sensations of trust and well being. Because nipple sucking and oxytocin release are linked, nipple sucking may help to build feelings of closeness and intimacy with your partner. As well as encouraging oxytocin to flow, the nipples are highly sensitive to touch and temperature, and often become erect in response to sexual arousal.
The same region of the brain that is activated during stimulation of the clitoris and vagina is triggered by nipple stimulation. This suggests that the pleasure some people feel when having their nipples sucked is similar to that of direct genital stimulation — some people have even reported that they can have an orgasm just from having their nipples played with.

II. Increasing Intimacy
Inducing lactation and then breastfeeding your partner (husband, boyfriend, etc.) can bring you two closer together on an intimate level. Sharing this part of your body and your life with your partner can be an extremely unique and fulfilling experience.
“I have found that it is quite a deep emotional and intimate experience between partners that helps bond them together,” an anonymous man told Metro. “This activity also makes you and your partner spend time together on a regular basis. I see nothing wrong with that.”
Additional testimonials can be found on The Lactation Wiki.
III. Improving Health
Breast milk has so many health benefits. It can even be used as a medical treatment for certain conditions. Breastfeeding could potentially improve your partner’s immune system as well as provide some nutritional benefits.
In general, studies have shown breastfeeding is beneficial for women’s overall health, helping prevent obesity and heart disease.
Another health benefit of breast milk for adults is it may be helpful against diabetes. According to some research, breast milk is an excellent source of stem cells and stem cells are the key to fight certain medical conditions, including diabetes.
