Enterprising British women are taking advantage of a new source of income during the cost of living crisis: selling their breast milk to men online.

While breast milk is completely safe between mother and child, it is not recommended to drink it as an adult.

This is because the fluid can be tampered with or stored incorrectly – and can even carry diseases such as STIs.

Official NHS milk banks, where women can donate their surplus supplies to mothers struggling to produce enough for their children or babies whose mothers have died, have been around for years.

But online marketplaces, such as Only the Breast, have now provided men with a way to secure breast milk.

Robyn, from Glossop in Derbyshire, advertised her ‘good quality milk’ for around £28 a pint alongside a photo of her bust on the website.

The new mom, who worked in communications before giving birth, told MailOnline, though she’s seen a lot of interest from male buyers, they wanted more than she was willing to offer.

“I was happy to sell my breast milk to men,” she said. “As long as they don’t want it straight out of stock.

“I had a lot of men claiming they wanted the milk “for health reasons.”

“But when it came down to it, they wanted pictures of my breasts.

“I would talk to some for a while. But before money was transferred, they asked for wet nursing, so I stopped selling.’

Robyn said she now mainly sells to a private milk bank to essentially avoid “pouring it down the sink.”

The new mother wasn’t the only one willing to sell her breast milk to men.

Harriet of Westbury in Wiltshire, who sells her stock for £32 a pint, wrote: ‘Healthy fit blonde girl selling my breast milk.’

She described herself as “only 21,” “disease-free and alcohol-free,” and “willing to sell to men as well.”

Shie999 in South Wales described herself as a ‘young blonde mum’ who ‘liked to sell to men’.

She posted a photo of herself and an overflowing fridge of breast milk, which she sells for £38 each.

But her prices were overshadowed by Sam, a ‘second British-born Chinese mother’, also from South Wales, who sold her milk for £57 a pint to ‘people who want to buy for alternative uses/men’.

Stacey, from Birmingham, went so far as to advertise to men that her milk, at prices available on demand only, was free of Covid vaccine.

These online breast milk marketplaces also feature ads from British men looking to stock up.

One, from a user named “FoxMuscles,” assured women that he was only looking for a new supply for fitness and health purposes.

“I’m looking for fresh milk in the London area but I can commute if you’re regularly in the area for fitness and health so all sales remain professional and respectable,” he said.

Other ads from men viewed by MailOnline also claimed to seek milk on similar grounds of health and fitness.

Breast milk has earned an online reputation as a bodybuilding superfood, under the disputed logic that if it helps babies gain mass quickly, the same should apply to humans.

Others have even said it has kept them cancer-free, a health claim with little evidence.

However, experts have dismissed the idea of ​​breast milk as a superfood for athletes.

Breast milk is low in protein, high in fat and contains high amounts of lactose that many people cannot digest, making it a poor supplement for bodybuilding.

One expert even said ‘there is nothing specific in it that will cause adults to gain muscle’.

The cancer claims are based on some preliminary studies suggesting that a type of protein in breast milk may kill some cancer cells.

Breast milk is 88 percent water, but the remaining 12 percent contains everything a baby needs to grow, including carbohydrates, fats, proteins and minerals.

While it’s perfect for babies, adult consumption can be risky, especially when they buy it from strangers.

Breastmilk sent over the Internet may be mixed with other substances or may have been stored improperly, posing a health hazard.

They can even carry infectious diseases such as hepatitis B, HIV and syphilis.

Experts say there is generally no danger in drinking breast milk provided it is disease/drug free and properly pasteurized and stored.

NHS milk banks that take donations from mothers and mothers-to-be have women undergo health tests to make sure they are not carrying any of these diseases and passing them on unintentionally to babies.

The same goes for medications and prescription drugs, some of which may pass into breast milk.

NHS milk banks also pasteurize the liquid, heating it to kill any bacteria and testing it to make sure it’s safe for babies to consume.

None of these guarantees can be guaranteed by people selling the product online.
