Woman Nurses Monkey



"Photograph of an indigenous woman nursing a Woolly monkey (Lagothrix lagotricha) in the Amazon rain forest. Curiously, it is not uncommon for indigenous women in the Amazon to breastfeed a young monkey whose mother has died. Often during hunting, the mother will be killed leaving behind her young. Indigenous Amazonians often adopt the young monkey as a pet, hence the women breastfeeding the monkey in the above picture. "

Thoughts?

wow.
This seriously grosses me the fuck out. Sometimes I think I take it a little too far when I let my chiwa lick from my spoon then put it back in my mouth or share an icecream cone with her. But having a wild monkey suck your nipples--- that's wildly inappropriate.
Don't they have teeth and weird discoverable viruses?
gah.

It doesn't bug me that much except that the monkey looks like he wants no part of it. He is just like get your indigenous tit out of my face, lady.

It just shows that indigenous people are way more in touch with their sexuality. I think the picture is interesting and beautiful.

ruddy said...

what do you think she was thinking?
i think in about nothing more that give a chance to survive to that monkey, not about her sexuality.

It actually shows that indigenous women are in touch with their humanity, sexuality has nothing to do with this picture.
What really grosses me out is when i see a fat bitch allowing her dog to lick her on the mouth! If you call that love, maybe you can understand that this is as well.

People do things differently all around the world. A lot of people probably think we're gross as shit for drinking cow's milk. It's strange to look at at first, but be open minded about it. The only reason everyone is freaking out saying it is gross is because it is different.
