The legalization of same-sex marriage and adoption in France has been a real boon to the economy, but wedding planners and cake bosses aren’t the only ones benefiting. A woman in France is, shall we say, milking the newfound equality for all its worth.
“I am a young mother in perfect health, a trained nurse of 29, and I am renting my breasts to milk-feed infants,” reads a post on France’s e-loue website.
The woman’s offer, addressed to gay male couples, promises up to 10 feedings per day. According to the site’s chief executive, Alexandre Woog, the woman is legitimate and her identity has been confirmed.
“Our legal advisers are sure of this,” Woog told Reuters. “It’s illegal in France to sell maternal milk but this is a person proposing a service, not selling the milk in flasks.”
Unsurprisingly, the post has proven popular, though not necessarily with the target audience. “I’ve received more than a dozen requests, but only half of them were serious,” the poster told Reuters. “The rest were from perverts.”
