I am a male. How do I lactate and make milk in my breasts?

Hi guys,

I am a 21 year old single boy. I am interested in wearing women's clothes. But I am not gay. Till now, I have only tried wearing bra and panty secretly. I sometimes strongly feel that I should have big breasts like women.

One day when I was thinking about that another thought came to my mind. It was about Male Lactation. As per my knowledge, I know males can lactate if the prolactin harmones in men are sufficient for that. I also searched for various ways of increasing prolactin harmone level in men. The only easiest way I thought is STIMULATION of nipples.

I am a bit confused about the term stimulation. Does it only mean stimulation by sucking nipples? or does it also mean stimulation by moving fingers around the nipples for a long time? I strongly want to lactate from my nipples but as I dont have a girlfriend for sucking my nipples, and the only way is by moving my fingers over nipples.

Please tell me whether is it right to think like that? Will stimulation by fingers really succeed? Should I continue doing like that? If lactation starts, will it make my boobs large like women's boobs? What do girls think about this, specially married women?

In future, will there be any problem for my marriage due to this?

Your question may sound strange to many of our Readers, but you are right. Men can also lactate, but it is not as easy and simple as stimulating or sucking the male nipples as you think.

Both women and men have breast tissue which contains hollow cavities called alveoli, which are lined with milk-secreting cells. But the ingredient for lactation is prolactin, a hormone that's produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the mammary glands to produce milk.

So the difference is a matter of hormonal influence, first during puberty and then again after pregnancy. Men do have the necessary equipment, but usually they don’t naturally produce the necessary levels of hormones to use it. Provide the right hormones, though, and male lactation is absolutely possible.

Normally, non-pregnant women can have almost double the amount of prolactin circulating in their body than men. This concentration can increase nearly tenfold during and after pregnancy.

Research has shown that male prolactin levels can also increase. But this will require injection of prolactin and estrogen into the male body. I have read that one way to induce lactation from men is via starvation. During World War II, thousands of men reported lactation while held as prisoners either in Japanese POW camps or Nazi concentration camps. When a person is malnourished, the hormone-producing glands—like the pituitary gland, which generates prolactin—are impeded, but so too is the hormone-destroying liver. So, some combination of manual nipple stimulation and hormone injections may develop the  expectant father’s latent potential to make milk.

But why do you want to do all this and mess with nature. Taking of drugs is a life long experience and you will have difficulty in finding a wife later on. Stick with wearing female attire. No harm will be caused by that.
