This is just another way and reason for a loving soul to interact with another loving soul to come together and help each others thought process fade away while holding each other close and relaxing without a care in the world.
Be open, be honest, be up front, be ready to enhance your relationship skills with the simple request and talk about what you want. An ANR relationship can be for emotional reasons only to achieve both of your goals to become as one and walk as one again.
I have had a lot of people contact me on here and inquire about just a suckling friendship without the goal of lactation. And I have to say, that is a great type of friendship also. There is nothing wrong if you enjoy the stimulation of someone suckling you if you both have an understanding up front.
This is not a game, and this isn't a ploy to go any further than the mutual agreement that two adults share to have a strong bond. Again, I have friends, that are married who's husbands or wives do not enjoy it, but they look outside of their marriage. You have to do what makes you happy. Interacting with another loving soul with the same wants and needs brings joy and calm to the aura around you.
I apologize to those that have contacted me, but I am not a dating specialist, this is just a topic about the joys of one type of relationship. Finding someone is up to you.
Its not instant, give it time, and the rewards will be worth it. My advice to those involved or curious Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account. Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites. Such a wonderful thing, I crave it again.
I only have droplets but would love to share them with likeminded. Have been looking for this for the past 12 yrs Hard to find a meeting of the minds, spiritual, intellectual, physical, respectful, spiritual, humorous, and interesting connection with this as well. Always meet 'leg men' when my interest and assets are above the waist. No rudeness, short fuse, or bad manners, folks like this are not trustworthy. Has to be a pilot personality.. Never discussed with any partner.
I had Never heard of this term or type of "activity" until just recently when a friend of mine asked me if I knew what an Adult Nursing Relationship was. Not having any idea, I looked it up on the internet. I just wasn't at all interested enough to further pursue its meaning. My husband has wanted this,since maybe our second child. And I have tried, however I have a bad reaction to it.
And I have tried distracting myself but I still feel so uncomfortable. I WANT to do this for him , for many reasons. I just have a sexual abuse history as a child. I have nursed from my wife for years. Unfortunately, it has always been on and off as work, kids, and responsibilities have gotten in the way. But we recently made a firm, new commitment to this - determined to nurse several times a day on a schedule. Yes, you cannot imagine how powerful and bonding this is.
It is more intimate and powerful than sex, by far. People say that keeping on a schedule is what makes it hard. But in fact, that is one of the most power aspects of adult breastfeeding - that every 4 hours or 6 or 8, or however you can manage it , you both KNOW that the world will stop, and you will clutch into each others' arms and nurse. That is the true power of it.
That on a regular basis, every single day of your lives, you give yourselves to each other. After all, we go to work on a schedule, eat on a schedule. We make sure that every day we do these things, but yet the most important thing, bonding and loving our partner, we "fit in when we can".
For yourself, for each other. For any couple who wants to live in a secret state of bliss for your entire lives. I have a question if anyone sees this and knows the answer..
I'm a 60 year old woman who has done anr for a very short time some years ago and I loved it. My question is can I produce milk at this age? It's the most powerful form of bonding you will ever know. Far more emotionally and spiritually connecting then even sex.
Addie Pray May 28, , Is this what Oldie meant though? These stupid gender assignments? Is this what trying to be a man means? That you are successful outside of the home? And that emasculates a man somehow? I never understand what people mean when they say feminism is making women more masculine and men more feminine.
Are they talking about character traits such as men being ambitious and aggressive, and women being more passive and nurturing? Milla May 28, , Gender presentation rarely has anything to do with whether or not one is a feminist. Please look into the idea of femme embracing the performative aspects of traditional femininity, often as a political act for one thing.
I love cooking, embroidering, and taking care of my home. Who also has a closet full of skirts and dresses! Temperance May 29, , 4: Lindsay May 28, , 1: None of that is biological.
My husband is not masculine. He never has been. Shockingly, I am still interested in him sexually. One recommendation I have is to not usual the F word. But really jump in. And have your husband read it too. And maybe you can talk about the issues and see how you can make your marriage more of an equal partnership if that is what you want. And yes, she is a modern feminist and champions women from all walks of life. The boom — while kind of annoying in parts — I thought was really so-right-on, and effective.
Jillie z May 28, , Addie Pray May 28, , 7: And I wish I had read her book when I was 20, before my career even started. Glad to hear you liked it. I thought it would all be pretty obvious things. LBH, I loved it because she actually approaches it very scientifically and academically.
Her husband sounds amazing! She just makes you not want to settle. Addie Pray May 28, , 5: TaraMonster May 28, , 6: It is fantastic and so spot on. Essie May 28, , If you used that phrasing with your husband, I can see where he found it amusing, and possibly even mildly insulting. Would you find it absolutely gross if I stopped shaving? I love the way you phrased this whole thing. Feminism is so much more than bra burning and not shaving your legs. I wish more people would see it that way.
Feminism just meaning you have the right to choose what is best for you. Fighting for individual rights inspires others to do the same, which sparks a revolution. She is growing and changing as an individual which can be awkward when you are also a part of a couple. Diablo May 28, , They are smart, strong and capable, often moreso than men. I would roll my eyes at the LW, too. A strong person can make her own choices, no objection.
But when you start justifying a personal hygiene decision by means of huge ideological moral imperatives, it makes you sound really weak. If you are talking big social issues in a broad context, fine, but when you bandy words like feminism about in your personal life, I wonder why you need to resort to that.
When someone tries to justify a simple personal choice through big political ideas, it usually comes off as false and weak. It might come off that way, but brushing off your wife because of that is a recipe for a problem. PS — I roll my eyes at my wife sixteen times a day, and she does to me too.
Most communication is non-verbal. We both know that we respect each other. My marriage is a constant jockeying of philosophical, political, social, personal, and comedy-based arguments. We are both trying to win those arguments every day, without malice, but also giving no quarter. It would be an insult to her if i gave up when I did not really believe in what she was saying. I guess every relationship is different then. Mocking ridiculousness in ourselves and others is really at the heart of our relationship among other things.
I think the LW is trying to redefine the relationship and is working through the fact that her husband is trying to keep the relationship the same as it was.
The personal is political, etc. Lynn May 28, , Crap like this is what pushes me far, far way from even wanting to embrace feminism just a little bit. I expected her letter to include all these examples that were a lot more deep than leg shaving. All of us hate doing it, so why give the LW heat for trying to stop it? It is obnoxious and horrible if he rolls his eyes at the things you think and believe though.
Fix those bigger problems so you can talk through the smaller things, like shaving your legs. Roxy84 May 28, , 2: LW May 28, , 5: Yes, this is really the crux of what bothers me on the Feminism thing, his dismissiveness. It goes beyond feminism too. Like, he is a bitter ex-Catholic and staunch atheist.
Anyway, thanks Ladies for keeping me anonymous, I was afraid all the background info about length of relationship, etc. Eagle Eye May 28, , 5: I have, however, refined how I approach things with him. Basically, talk about it less and let him come to you.
If he engages let him, if he disengages let him do that too. Christy June 3, , 3: I thought it was you! The comments to this letter are really surprising me, especially after the comments on the Taking His Name letter. I thought people were being obnoxiously anti-man on that letter, and this LW is getting bashed for even having this discussion with her husband. Same with the leg shaving issue, she is just trying to goad him into a debate with her.
Now if only I could master the whole engineering speak! I had the opposite problem in college. I was a feminist hippie, had a feminist hippie boyfriend, so I experimented with no makeup, not shaving legs, armpits, let my hair grow out all long and wavy that is frizzy on the east coast… and wore birkenstocks, and tie dye and Indian print clothing. Be careful about being too dogmatic. If he likes you shaved, and you want to do it either for him or for yourself, do it.
Maybe we should use feminism to address issues like that, and make shaving just be a personal decision. Though your comment does bring up some disturbing images…. I meant dressing too. I never thought of what you just implied. Though this tends to make my point, too.
Zepp May 28, , Ugh this letter is painful. Picking fights with your husband about shaving your legs does nothing for women. This is a really unfair statement. Especially when the LW was probably just using this as one example out of many.
And it DOES sound like there are problems in the relationship. Sounds like a real problem to me. She said she has personal reasons to stop as well as feminism ones.
I never once said he was sexist because he wants her to shave her legs. LadyinPurpleNotRed May 28, , 1: And she invited his opinion into it. Heather May 28, , Sheryl May 28, , I actually think shaving legs should not fall into things feminists care about — you are perfectly within your rights to not shave your legs, as is your husband for preferring you to continue to shave your legs. Beauty standards is a completely separate topic, and should be treated as such. Frankly, biology is what dictates those.
Everyone else in the world would not notice or care if you stopped shaving your legs. This is still a very real risk for many women. There is a long history of feminism being scoffed at because of the way some of it takes the personal an intimate relationship between man and women and turns it political. It runs both ways. And your husband is trying to belittle you for taking the first steps towards expressing your feminism.
Humor is great, but belittling is not okay. He has to engage with you seriously as an equal! But we believe in ending world hunger and AIDS and marriage inequality anyway. Captainswife May 28, , But you can be equally feminist even if you DO shave your legs. LW May 28, , 3: Just to make it clear to anyone, I do not for one second believe that any woman who chooses to shave her legs is anti-feminist or a patriarchy-supporter.
My train of thought around leg-shaving went something like this. Why do I even do it in the first place? Ah, well, some boys made fun of me when I was in junior high and came to school with hairy legs.
Why do I still do it? Wait, is that really my reason? I should just stop already, public opinion be damned. Bittergaymark May 28, , Which does everybody think I suspect this LW is? To put it bluntly, the quit shaving your legs b. More than just a bit of a game changer. If your husband had wanted some Solo time with Chewbacca I think he would have made that clear while dating….
Somehow, I thought we were. But at the end of the day you want your husband to be a different man than the one you married. Not years after the fact…. What a depressing way to think about marriage. But is putting down the razor really an essential part of a person? If it is, I wonder what will happen when her boobs get saggy and her hair turns gray. And I do think one owes a duty to their partner to at least TRY to stay attractive to them, try to maintain your weight, etc. I agree with you about that.
I just disagree that this changes who she is essentially. Deciding that your husband is sexist because he has personal reasons for wanting you to keep shaving is a pretty big deal. It goes along with the razor. You can leave your wife for whatever reason you want, right? That just means that marriage becomes a limitation on your growth, instead of what it should be — two people helping each other grow. Each has a choice. She can choose to change, he can choose to leave because of it. Like I doubt this guy is expecting her to not change anything ever.
I just got back from a cruise. I had a hard time shaving because of the teeny tiny shower. However, by the time I was home, I felt so skeeved out! This literally happened to me yesterday when I got home. Funny how this letter just came out when I just felt so happy to have shaved legs.
I had a similar problem with my husband. All this to say, maybe you can just try being really blunt with him. I thoroughly disagree about the eyerolling. Sometimes eye rolling is truly warranted.
Repeatedly trotting out feminism as a reason to stop shaving yours legs is rather like repeatedly refusing to wash the dirty dishes with soap due to environmental concerns… Both are equally laughably absurd. Are people not allowed to have those? But I find it odd how people are fixating on that, here. Then I guess it probably just means different things to different people. Which does, for a while, and then we have this conversation again, like 5 min later….
Lindsay May 28, , I agree with the eye rolling thing too. But if you say or do something over the top? I understand the urge to roll your eyes. Some people really are that obnoxious. But of all the people you know and interact with, your partner deserves your utmost respect and kindness. And you know what? If the person you married makes you want to roll your eyes, then, well, you chose to marry them.
You made your bed, so you get to lie in it. Bittergaymark May 28, , 8: I have never met a couple. To expect otherwise is laughable. May 28, , This is like the men-opening-doors issue that comes up now and again. Just because a man opens a door for you, does that mean he thinks of you as inferior? I consider myself a feminist in that I believe in equal pay, sex ed, pro-choice and all the things the LW cited above.
But I also love it when a man opens a door for me. I consider it good manners and a gesture of respect. But I am not relieved of any obligation. In order to get said respect, I must be worthy of it. Therein lies the balance, and I am all about balance. Does your husband treat you well otherwise? Does he respect you as an equal partner in life? I get not wanting to be a doormat, but life is abouit compromise, as Wendy said.
If you go around with a my-way-or-the-highway attitude, you may find yourself going your way alone. But neither should our men. I think it has less to do with fantasy and the fact that if women and men are both working in full-time jobs, it makes no sense for women to be the only ones who are cleaning their home. Firestar May 28, , 1: I always think something went awry with the couple that both work and then she has all the child care and home responsibilities too and is run ragged.
You are doing feminism wrong sweetie. It never meant you were to have two full time jobs while your husband just kept his one. Who the hell wants THAT deal? Two of Elizabeth's Wakefield relatives imprisoned in Newgate for abduction Quaker advice against trading beyond ones means Quaker prisons established in America 3.
He was made bankrupt and the Religious Society of Friends Quakers formally disowned him in the spring of As a prison reformer, Elizabeth Fry aroused hostility as well as admiration. Some other prison reformers disapproved of her unorthodox methods, and the irregular authority of her lady prison visitors. It has been said that to see her reading to the prisoners of Newgate was considered "one of the sights of London".
It is an inevitable practice, not only of Mrs Fry, but of all the ladies in connection with the several prison committees, when reading to the prisoners, to confine themselves entirely to the truths contained in the Holy Scripture. Pentonville Model Prison based on the separate system of American Quakers By the time of her death Far too good, the Bishop of Norwich told her memorial meeting, to have a tomb amongst the "emblems of heathen mythology" that disgraced Westminster Abbey.
Lord Ashley chaired the meeting on Wednesday Quaker women who were active in their own church affairs sought to be active in the affairs of inter-denominational associations they joined such as slavery abolition groups. Harriet Taylor, in , wrote "some of the most eminent names of the present age, have made emphatic protests in favour of the equality of women. And there have been voluntary societies, religious or secular, of which the Society of Friends is the most known, by whom that principle was recognized".
In , a World's Anti-slavery Convention was called in London. Women from Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, were delegates to that convention. I was one of the number; but, on our arrival in England, our credentials were not accepted because we were women. We were, however, treated with great courtesy and attention, as strangers, and as women, were admitted to chosen seats as spectators and listeners, while our right of membership was denied--we were voted out.
This brought the Woman question more into view, and an increase of interest in the subject has been the result. In this work, too, I have engaged heart and hand, as my labors, travels, and public discourses evince. The misrepresentation, ridicule, and abuse heaped upon this, as well as other reforms, do not, in the least, deter me from my duty.
To those, whose name is cast out as evil for the truth's sake, it is a small thing to be judged of man's judgement About Lucretia Coffin Mott at the Lucretia Coffin Mott Papers Project Temperance In his experiment cocoa or tea sweetened with sugar or treacle and skimmed milk were drunk instead of alcoholic drinks.
This was much cheaper and the money saved was spent on nutritious food. Josiah Hunt opened cocoa-houses at either end of Almonbury Tunnel. Smith, "Adult schools and the making of adult education" The encyclopedia of informal education Quakers formed the "Friends' First-day School Association" in Birmingham in At first this was mainly concerned with the education of children, but William White promoted the concern for adult education. Quakers in York set up an Adult School in Thirty adults men over fifteen had been taught on Sunday morning in a room at the British School in Hope Street.
They now moved into a rented room behind the premises of the Quaker business of the Rowntree family. There were two classes: John Wilhelm Rowntree was the eldest son of Joseph Rowntree May A national Friends' First-day School Association conference was held at the same time as yearly meeting and in future years the Friends' First-day School Association continued to meet independently of but at the same time as yearly meeting.
A preceding Committee on General Meetings was closed in Joseph Bevan Braithwaite senior was a member of both. Opposite the flats is a Blue plaque put up in honouring his daughter's name. In her youth, Mary Hughes took part in work on behalf of the poor and unfortunate. You drove to that work in a carriage and when the work was done you drove back to a beautiful house. Mary became deeply convinced that her class was unjustly privileged and felt convicted of its sins against society.
She decided that she did not want to visit the poor. She wanted to be with the poor and be poor herself. Choosing to live in the East End, she became a "shabby and sometimes verminous women" living the ideals of Christian Socialism in a direct way. Visit Kingsley Hall web site Mary Hughes became a Quaker in , influenced by the Society's conscientious objection to the war, but continued to attend Anglican services.
She was an early example of what some have called the "Quanglicans", who value the traditions of both churches. In it was again adapted by the Anglican architect, S.
Grylls Wilson, who continued to care for it during Mary's life. Mary, who lived there, was described by George Lansbury as its "founder, manager, and administrator". The punning name meant it was somewhere you could drop in. People came with every sort of problem, and many stayed there. The upper rooms were intended primarily for students of "sociology", studying at first hand how the poor lived. After the defeat of the General Strike and Ramsey MacDonald's cuts in unemployment benefit , Mary's attachment to the Labour Party weakened and her sympathies with the communists grew, although she strongly opposed their appeals to violence.
The plate glass windows of the Dew Drop Inn "were pasted up with every sort of propaganda, communist, pacifist, and religious". Mary was tireless, exasperatingly eccentric and greatly loved: George Lansbury said, "Our frail humanity only produces a Mary Hughes once in a century". She was pictured with stick on Gandhi's visit to London in , at Muriel Lester's house, and the Quaker Tapestry have made a panel commemorating her work.
When it moved to Stoke Newington, Stepney Council bought the premises shortly after the second world war to set up an ante- natal clinic, day nursery, nursery for the care of premature infants, hostel for nursery nurses and school treatment centre.
The project was continued by Tower Hamlets Council, and ran for almost 50 years. It closed about It is now called the Mary Hughes Building and houses a variety of children and adult services for local people.
All but 20 of them were Jewish. It was the second largest death toll of the V2 campaign.

Quakers and the political process weblinks Quaker asylum According to Harriet Martineau , "Quaker lunacy, being seldom caused by Peel, Wheeler Street and Bunhill.
Of these, only the newest, Bunhill, still meets. Bull and Mouth Howgill and Burrough reached London in July , and took rooms at the Bull and Mouth Inn, off St Martins le Grand, using them for "threshing meetings" at which new people were attracted to Quaker beliefs.
These were not silent meetings - the crowds could be rowdy and the preaching had to be robust. The Inn was destroyed in the great fire of , but it was rebuilt and Meetings continued here until Royal Sufferings - Newgate and the Tower Cromwell's regime was not ideal for Quakers, but after the restoration of the monarchy in the situation of Quakers and Baptists worsened as Charles 2nd sought to stabilise the country around a common approved religion.
The Quaker "Peace Testimony" was part of a letter to the new King explaining that the Quakers would not resist his regime by force. It was "given forth from the people called Quakers to satisfy the King and his Council, and all those that have any jealousy concerning us, that all occasion of suspicion may be taken away and our innocency cleared" The "Quaker Act" of early Besse p.
He writes about arrests following on Whereas of late times certain persons under the name of Quakers, and other names of separation, have taken up and maintained sundry dangerous opinions and tenets, and amongst others that the taking of an Oath in any case whatsoever, although before a lawful magistrate, is altogether unlawful and contrary to the Word of God; and the said persons do daily refuse to take an oath, though lawfully tendered, whereby it often happens that the truth is wholly suppressed, and the administration of justice much obstructed: And whereas the said persons under a pretence of religious worship, do often assemble themselves in great numbers in several parts of this realm, to the endangering of the public peace and safety, and to the terror of the people, by maintaining a secret and strict correspondence amongst themselves, and in the mean time separating and dividing themselves from the rest of his Majesty's good and loyal subjects, and from the public congregations, and usual places of divine worship.

In response to the passing of the Quaker Act in , [Phyllis] Mack recounts "The day after one government raid, Solomon Eccles passed through Bartholomew Fair as a sign, 'naked with a pan on his head full of fire and brimstone, flaming up in the sight of the people, crying repentance among them, and bade them remember Sodom. Paul's, one 'with her face made black, and her hair down with blood poured in it, which run down upon her sackcloth which she had on, and she poured also some blood down upon the altar and spoke some words.
In the process some became the prosperous owners of black slaves. Whilst accepting, and benefiting from, the ownership of slaves, Quakers were sensitive to a tension between this and "being tender to that of God in all". It was this that precipitated one of the founding doctrinal statements, a letter of from Quakers to the Governor of Barbados , in which they set out the Christian responsibility of including slaves and natives in the family of God.
In 18th century England , Quakers were part of the triangular trade in slaves, and part of the crisis of conscience conviction of sin that led to its abolition. See John Woolman Quakers usually emphasise the society as the pioneer of slave liberation.
Some natural philosophers argued that God established nature by laws and so plagues were not a direct action or a sign of his wrath. Quakers would have none of this. An early Quaker victim of the plague was Henry Stokes, Spittlefields baker, who died on James Stokes, a descendent, has written his story. Solomon Eccles born ? His streaking can be traced back to He was apparently arrested in May in Southwark.
He is said to have run naked through Bartholomew and Smithfield in as a religious warning respecting the plague. Pepys witnessed him running naked through Westminster Hall in I have not seen the entry. The jury found them guilty only of "speaking in Gracious Street" and refused to change their verdict even after two days spent in prison.
This established the primacy of the jury's decision in English law. His father's rival Pepys records in In he accepted land in America in payment of a debt Charles II owed his father, but he made special treaties with the Indians of Pennsylvania, as he knew his "Holy Experiment" needed their respect and friendship.
Fox and others in America Before George Fox sailed for America he established what became six weeks meeting Gracious Street or White Hart Court "Gracious Street" or Gracechurch Street meeting house began as an inn like Bull and Mouth , acquired after the Great Fire , but was rebuilt as something more like our idea of a meeting house. George Fox died at a house next door, after a meeting here on 13th January in modern reckoning. After his funeral at the meeting house, some 4, people accompanied his body to Bunhill Fields for burial.
Quakers numbered the months to avoid using heathen names and Fox's 19th century tombstone shows his death as the 11th month of Gracechurch Street became one of the most important Quaker Meetings, and the neighbourhood around it became the centre of the Quaker business community in the city.

The stranger was John Woolman who, through his loving ministry, won the support of the Yearly Meeting. He died at York on 7. Another Quaker peculiarity involved hats, which were not taken off out of deference to persons in authority.
This caused William Penn and William Mead to be fined for contempt of court, at the same time as the jury in their case was imprisoned.
In the seventeenth century, refusing to take one's hat off before someone in authority was a highly offensive act implying complete lack of respect for the social order. Equally offensive in families was that when young men converted to Quakerism they kept their hats on in the company of their fathers. Dishonour to one's father also had political implications at a time when Royalist theory derived the legitimacy of the king from the fifth commandment.
Before about the hat insult and calling everyone by the familiar "the and thou" were two signs taken to mean that Quakers were turbulent and possibly revolutionary people. See also 5th monarchists and going naked as a sign Gradually, as Quakers distanced themselves from these implications, with the Peace Testimony for example, refusing to pay hat homage and using the and thou, along with the Quaker dress, just became peculiarities that set Quakers apart.
The same Quakers who kept their hats on when talking to rich and powerful humans, took them off when offering prayer in a meeting for worship, or "ministering".
