Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

So, back when my wife and I were dating (about 8 years ago), I went to a rock show where the lead singer of a band filled his mouth with water and then poured the water into my mouth out of his from the stage. It was a sauna at the show and the water was refreshing. I thought (and still do) that it was awesome. She thinks it is vomit inducing. My wife is a hippy when it comes to anything relating to birth and babies and she asked me if I would have a problem if she breast feed another baby that wasnít around their mom and was starving. I told her that was gross. So, naturally, we got into a discussion about which thing is more gross. Of course, her hippy friends agree with her. So, I need some help here. Which do you think is grosser?

Some things to consider when making your choice:
1) I am 95% sure the lead singer had no diseases of any kind.
2)The baby in question will not die from lack of milk, but hasnít eaten for a number of hours and is crying quite a lot.

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

While the breastfeeding is far grosser, I feel it is a far more socially acceptable act as it would be done out of need rather than for entertainment purposes.

However, that assumes there is no other source of nourishment (formular, water, grape soda...) availalbe for the baby. If she wants to BF just for the sake of breast feeding, than that is equally gross to the water thing.

The water feeding from the lead singer is just weird. Would it be gross if you french-kissed him, because that is basically what you did.

As far as breastfeeding goes, assuming that the baby's mother would be OK with it then it's not gross. That's what a wet nurse does (or did, I'm not sure if they are still around).

Receiving water as it's coming INTO me, not going out.

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

OP's gonna get killed on this one.

The water thing is just nasty, IMO. Essentially you're letting some random dude spit water (and saliva) into your mouth.

Breastfeeding = not a big deal.

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

Let me explain something to you. I'm actually shocked no one has done this for you before.

Your wife is right. Your wife is always right.

This is the key to a happy and successful marriage. That you've managed to stay married for nearly a decade without understanding this fact is remarkable.

Thanks for the visual, orangecrush. I just threw up in my mouth a little. Perhaps you'd like me to spit it into your mouth?

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

So you and your wife were at this rock show together when you were dating? And she still married you after what took place? I'd consider yourself fortunate.

Receiving water from the mouth of a lead singer at a Rock Show. Why didn't you just hop on stage and french kiss him?

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

Again, how is a baby drinking another woman's milk "gross," but a man drinking water from another man's mouth (?) not "gross?"

Otter
is a strange, strange place sometimes. I think this one has a shot at 99%

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

They're both equally gross. But, sadly, there's always a universal constant to these types of arguments, and that is...

They're still around, just not really advertised as such. There's also mom's who donate their extra breast milk for other babies, usually via pumping, but cross-nursing is not unheard of. It's certainly far less gross than the toxic stuff they put into formula.

Agreed. If she would feed the baby before trying to find it grape soda she's just being selfish. My mother raised me on grape soda. And blackroot.

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

If it was a normal person, you could compare the act to French kissing. Since it's a rock star, it's better compared to giving him a rim job.

How about the lead singer filling his mouth with your wife's breast milk and then pouring it into the baby's mouth?

Re: Please help me settle a dispute with my wife.

Two thoughts:
*The wife is always right (if you want a sex life)
*The lead singer water is WAY grosser. If it was a hot chick spitting water in your mouth, that MIGHT take some of the edge off the grossness, but a dude, NOT.
*A third thought: Why is breast milk gross?

The water thing is nasty. There is actually a service based in Colorado that takes breast milk donations to sell to parents of premo babies or mothers who can't breast feed

You wanted a dude to spit water into your mouth?

WTF?

I mean WTF...

"It was refreshing?" "I thought it was awesome?"

You lose, OP. Yuck. And this is coming from a woman who once threw her underpants to k.d. lang from the third row center.

P.S. Okay, I'm kidding. But you still lose.
