Mother-of-three defends her decision to have sex while breastfeeding

The YouTube mum says 'There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever.'

Tasha Maile has spoken out in defence of her decision to have sex with her husband while breastfeeding her baby.

The San Diego-based mum - who also claims she can teach people to sleep - says she's still copping flak for a video she uploaded discussing the issue in 2015.

Spiritual Tasha Mama (as she’s known) posted the clip entitled “Do I have sex while breastfeeding” to her YouTube channel to share her thoughts on the controversial subject.

She told her subscribers: “I’ve had a lot of people ask me if it’s OK to breastfeed and have sex.

“From what I remember, I remember … sleeping with my ex-husband and my son was on me and we would have sex from behind or something.

She continued “There’s nothing bad about making love at all, ever.”

While the clip has been viewed over three million times, many who’ve seen it don’t agree with her stance, and commenters have left a stream of angry and negative remarks.

In an effort to tackle the backlash, Maile recently posted a new clip to YouTube to address those who believed she’d acted inappropriately.

During this clip called “Sex while breastfeeding?? Involving children?! the YouTuber defends her decision, and explains the act had nothing to do with her child.

"As far as my video goes on sex and breastfeeding - first of all, if you actually listen to the video it's talking about ... my three-month-old would not allow me to put him down, at all."

"So, he was attached to me 24/7 and he was also using me as a binky [dummy] at night, she explains.

"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.”
