Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

It kinda bugs me, too. I like the nursing part, and ITA with the detatched look and spread eagle comments. I don't think I ever have or ever will nurse in that position. That said, I think it is cool that she is practicing EBF, and the boy is adorable, especially in that pose!

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

I am all for nudity, heck my naked preg. pic. came out in my college's magazine. I bf my ds and I don't hide and sometimes even do it in the nude,it is just her pose, it is just to sexual for what she is doing.

Her legs are spread and she is nude. I have breastfed my babies nude but not with my legs spread and a come hither look on my face

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

I think it is slightly creepy. I have bf for the last 7 years with only a 3 month break inbetween each of my 4 boys and I NEVER would pose like that. Just my opinion.

I agree.
Considering the next photo on the website (Donna Feratto's "Love Donna" gallery on digitaljournalist) is "the orgy" even more so. The photo is part of the "love and lust" series. its not somones personal photo.

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

I think even if she was wearing clothes, it wouldn't look right. She just seems too detached from the child. I don't think it is a nursing picture as much as it is an art picture.

E.T.A. I think the point is to make the viewer uncomfortable and too get a reaction. It definitely does that.

Right. As I said above, it is a professional photographer's pic.

That is some good tastefully done breastfeeding photography.
That close up one towards the bottom is absolutely adorable!!!

As for the myspace pic, I think being spread-eagled like that pushes it over the edge. For a photography class when DD was about a year I took some photos of me nursing her, and we were both nude, and I shared the photos, but not online . And I definitely was NOT spread out like that, lol!
I used to sleep naked a lot when the kids were younger, so I was naked a lot when I nursed and co-slept, purely natural thing, IMO... but that picture does something that takes it a step towards the deviant for me and makes me alittle uncomfortable.
And that nipple pinching sure does bring back memories! That mama needs a nursing necklace!

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

photos like that is why people say breastfeeding is sexual .women constantly are fighting to change the minds of people who veiw it as such and then something like this comes along.I think that is discusting and wrong,**** is the word that comes to mind.

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

Ya know I gotta wonder if anyone here ever took a photography course. Or an advanced art class. "sacred and profane"
