    I believe I heard on the radio that the authorities put a stop to the sales.

    Because we don't eat anything else that comes from human bodies either? Obviously there are also cannibalistic and sexual undertones to all this which is probably what makes all of it so revolting to most people as that is one of the biggest taboos of modern societies. Babies get a free pass here but it's quite clear to everyone how long breast feeding is still considered normal and acceptable... certainly not with say 5 or 10 year olds or older. There's also a huge number of potential problems with the quality of human milk due to the medications and diseases the milk "donors" could be transferring along with the milk.

    It's not the breast milk per se that is problematic here but rather the source.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying I would eat it... I'm just saying I could see how others wouldn't mind as much.

    Aldeht,

    Because it's not socially acceptable for a grown-up to suckle off a woman's breast. It would of thought that was an obvious one... of course, what you do in the privacy of your own home is your own business.... :p

    And silly me thinking it would also be a bit strange to go around sucking on a cow's udder.

    [​IMG] There's also the interesting fact that in humans you can't guarantee that the milk comes from a woman :p

    Drinking mother's milk is an infantile behaviour. As you get older, you grow out of it, just like sucking your thumb or crapping your pants. At that age mother's milk is the perfect food. We move on to other foods as it is a drain (ha!) on the mother's physical resources to provide milk.

    Adults who desire mother's milk, IMHO, are people who are arrested in their development. That sort of arrested development is a mental disorder, just as you would probably say that a 12 year old (or a 21 year old, for that matter) who was sucking on his thumb is suffering from some "issues" as we call them these days.

    That's why I find this whole idea so repugnant. It is reinforcing a behaviour that I believe is indicative of mental dysfunction.

    Maybe I'm just an old fuddy duddy, but I just think some violations of the norm are so drastic that they need to be smacked down.

    People used to think it was strange 'cause I breast-fed him 'til he was almost five, but I say - hunh, just look at the results!

    I guess I may be labeled as sick and disgusting by some here, but where my wife is concerned, I admit, I've sampled some leche.

    It was never the milk I was interested in. It was the receptacle that I wanted. But during those long months following pregancy you can't completely get to the latter without encountering some of the former.

    I certainly have never done this while the "storehouses" were full, but yeah, I've gotten some of the leftovers. I chalk this up to being part of the natural order. I shouldn't be restricted from my wife in that way for an entire 6 - 12 month period.

    So, with that out in the open, who says I'm a sicko!

    Marceror, that was your wife -- it was something fun you did, you're only a minor sicko in my book ;)

    But people who want to drink it from other women, in the absence of sexual titillation*, as a food source? Something is wrong there.

    *HA!

    Again, the fun was never in the milk for me. At the time, that was just an unavoidable consequence of obtaining what I was really after. I guess I'm a bit of a boob zombie.

    But hey, I got called a sicko today, even if only a minor one. My day is complete! ;)

    I don't really see the BFD, here. Breast milk is natural and healthy, if intended for infants. I'd gladly sample the ice cream. Why not? It isn't gonna kill me, and it's probably pretty damn good (at least it better be with that price tag). At least it isn't a sheep's heart, liver and lungs simmered in it's stomach. Or scraps, organ meats, blood, and fat shoved into an intestine. Most of us eat far more disgusting things on a regular basis. Pansies...

    When I hear the terms "women" and "edible" I usually think of some form of attire ... not necessarily an excretion.

    I dont see that she has any legal grounds to sue, she's suing because they've used part of her 'name' when Gaga is a commonly useds slang word meaning dementia or insanity

    She might convince a judge that the connection to her is clear enough that they are profitting off her name that she has put time and energy into promoting.

    But I hate her guts, and find her to be a reprehensible individual, so if she loses I wouldn't care too much. It's not like there's going to be a whole lot of money made on this, as I don't think too many people are going to sample this ice cream.

    Do you get one scoop or two? If two, is one scoop a little bit smaller than the other....;)

    How can you not do two scoops? And they better have a little cherry on top of each.
