Indian men want to be breastfed by their wives

In a few countries, for example, men reveal a new desire after their wives give birth: to be breast-fed by their wives. In India, the top [Google] search, by far, beginning “my husband wants” is “my husband wants me to breastfeed him.” In addition, in India, the most common search including both “how to” and “my husband” is “how to breastfeed my husband.” In the United States, this desire is rare. It is not in the top 10 searches for “my husband wants,” and it falls behind “my husband wants to share me” and “my husband wants to be a woman.”
