This mother caused controversy when she revealed that she has sex during breastfeeding and now has defended her decision on live television while breastfeeding.
Presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby met the mother of three, Tasha Maile from Salt Lake City, Utah on yesterday’s edition of This Morning. Tasha, regularly posts videos about breastfeeding on her YouTube channel named Spiritual Tasha Mama. She describes herself as a “vegan breastfeeding mama” and looks to help break down the stigma that surrounds this topic.
Mother nature intended women to breastfeed their children and it’s the most natural way and scientifically proven to provide the best nourishment. It’s such a shame that our society labels this act as “wrong” and comment on Tasha’s videos criticising her decision to publicly breastfeed.
In a video she posted titled “Do I have sex while breastfeeding,” she took her attitude to a new level and revealed that she does breastfeed her baby named Love, while being intimate with her husband.

In the video she said:
“What’s wrong with enjoying yourself? Obviously care about who you share your sexual energy with but it’s a whole different topic. We are pleasure beings, we are meant to enjoy sex and pleasure and all things orgasmic and all things can be orgasmic. I’ve had a lot of people ask me if it’s okay to breastfeed and have sex.
“From what I remember, I remember sleeping with my ex-husband and my son was on me breastfeeding and we would have sex from behind or something. There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever.”
She also said that having sex with your children being there, doesn’t mean they’re involved in the process.

There were a lot of critics to her video and that’s why she joined This Morning via video link to respond to these critics and defend her decision. Holly and Phil quizzed her about the controversial video and she claimed:
“The baby was sleeping while breastfeeding, he was very attached to me. If your baby is sleeping, again being an adult about the conversation, we all like sex… its totally fine.
“The baby’s not sitting there judging you and thinking “My mum and dad are having sex.” Do I make love in front of my eldest child, no. I’m sure lots of us have walked in on our parents. It’s not about being right or wrong if you’re having sex in front of your children and it feels good.”
Phil was stunned by her answer: ‘That’s a hell of a quote’ to which Tasha responded:
“Parents have had sex in a room while children are sleeping”
During the interview, she was not bothered about being criticized. Disgruntled viewers took to Twitter to complain anyway:

I’m gonna have to switch #ThisMorning off… no no no do not mix breastfeeding & love making together. Two special things keep separate!

But, whether you think this is right or wrong, Tasha continues to breastfeed her children in the way she likes and we can’t help but admire what a good multitasker she is.
