Almost two years ago, the spiritualist and mum-of-three said her and her ex-husband “would have sex from behind” while she breastfeed her son in a video titled, ‘Do I have sex while breastfeeding?’.
Listen: Holly Wainwright and Andrew Daddo weigh in on the breastfeeding during sex debate.
“There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever,” the ‘vegan breastfeeding mumma’ told her 525,ooo subscribers in the six minute clip that has since been viewed over three million times.
Defending her actions in a new video, Tasha says anyone judging her parenting decisions should “get your panties out of a bunch”.
“First of all, if you actually listen to the video it’s talking about how my three-month-old would not allow me to put him down, at all,” she said in response to comments that having sex while breastfeeding is “f*cking creepy”.
“He was attached to me 24/7 and he was also using me as a binky [dummy] at night. So we ‘did it’ while he was sleeping on me.
“It had nothing to do with my child. My child was not in the act of what we were doing, if that makes sense. He was not involved in it. He was there … sleeping. Not involved in it.”
While some commenters agreed it’s a case of “whatever floats your boat as long as nobody is being mentally or physically hurt”, others were not so convinced.
“Breastfeeding your children is great. Sex is also great. Having sex WHILE your child is nursing is f*cking creepy! I don’t care what anyone says,” one commenter wrote.
Another added, “‘I find this video very disturbing. She wants viewers to believe this is a natural mother and child bonding while breastfeeding. However from the start this doesn’t appear to be natural but incestuous.”
What do you think about sex and breastfeeding? Do you agree with Tasha?
