It took me a minute to realize that this is the photo of the model breastfeeding a doll.

Well it's OK because it's not a real baby, right? So we can look at the sexy model and not get all grossed out! LOL

I have to admit that if it had been a real baby I would have easily sad no way is it too sexy but given the baby is a actually a doll I'm not sure how I feel. When it's a child nursing a baby doll it's comes across as cute but when it's a sexy blonde women then it comes across differently to me. On one hand the picture doesn't really bother me anymore then a women in skimpy bikini which never really bothered me. It does bother me when people treat a revealing BF picture differently then sexy picture of a women in a revealing outfit treating the former as worse then the later. I imagine that many men will find this kind of picture more appealing then a real BF picture because they can find it sexy without the guilt of getting off on a picture of a mom BF'ing a baby since it not a real BF picture. I do think the photo makes an interesting point about how we treat revealing BF photos vs clearly sexual revealing breast/cleavage photos.
