Skip to comments.China’s rich developing taste for human breast milk [Obvious BARF ALERT]

Human breast milk is the latest delicacy amongst Chinas wealthy, with a growing number of companies offering wet nurses for adults.
Xinxinyu, a domestic staff agency in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, allows adult clients to drink directly through breastfeeding or via a breast pump if they feel embarrassed.
Wet nurses for adults are paid four times the Chinese average at around 16,000 yuan (£1,700) a month and those who are healthy and good looking could earn even more, company owner Lin Jun told the Southern Metropolis Daily.
Beliefs are held in some part of the country that human breast milk is the easiest and most digestible form of nutrition for those who are ill.
However, this bizarre new trend has sparked outrage and disgust amongst web users with many condemning the practice as unethical.
An online poll found that 90 per cent of people voted against the service claiming it violated ethical values, while ten per cent of those who took part said it was normal business practice.
Chinese media commentator Cao Baoyin said: This adds to Chinas problem of treating women as consumer goods and the moral degradation of Chinas rich.
There were also around 140,000 postings about the topic on Sina Weibo, which is the Chinese equivalent to Twitter.
Weibo user Ricky Gao likened drinking human breast milk to pornography, saying, people become perverts when they are too rich and tired of other forms of entertainment
But Xiao Shuai added: Its just business. People are insensitive about ethics when there is money on the table.
In a separate development, Xinxinyu has been ordered to suspend its operations and has had its business licence revoked for missing three years of annual checks.
Regulators did not list offering a wet nurse service to adults as a reason for the suspension.
I have no idea what movie that’s from, but that actress should have plenty of employment opportunities in China.

Does that mean that the pig is more valuable than the baby?
Not sure, but I know it’s pretty rough for a farmer when the well dries up.
A woman took a baby in to the doctor for an annual checkup, the doctor examined the baby and remarked he appeared healthy and in good shape, then he asked “is the baby breastfed?” The woman replied “yes”. The doctor’s attention turned to the woman with concern and he asked her to remove her blouse and bra. He examined her breasts squeezing and massaging all areas, he replied “your breasts are dry, how could that baby be breast fed?” The woman replied “oh, I’m the baby’s grandmother, but I sure am glad I brought him in today!”
LOL! I like that one.
Can I get that with rhino horn and panda gall bladder?
Don’t forget the tiger gonads.

Look up “The Red Detachment of Women”, an awful Mao-era revolutionary opera. It features a canteen filled with human breast milk.
Asked why mother’s milk is superior to cow milk or formula, a medical student replied, “One, it’s always fresh. Two, the cats can’t get at it, and three, it comes in such a cute little container”.
