Shanna Moakler says boobs are for sexy times, calls nursing ‘incestual, gross’

You may remember Shanna Moakler from such veritable scandals as arguing with Kim Kardashian on MySpace,calling Khloe Kardashian a ‘donkey, and resigning as the co-director of the Miss California USA pageant when Carrie Prejean was allowed to keep her crown in 2009. In summary, former beauty queen Shanna hasn’t been relevant in years, if ever. She’s best known as the co-star of the 2005-2006 MTV reality show “Meet the Barkers,” with her then-husband, Blink 182′s Travis Barker. Travis and Shanna divorced in 2008. She went on to host “Bridalplasty” in 2010, during which she picked public fights with Kardashians for headlines.

So she’s not exactly C-list, and she talks to the paparazzi when they bother to address her. A paparazzo told Shanna that he read a fact that breastfed babies are more likely to be slim when they grow up and this is what she said. Shanna has three kids.

I’ve never heard of that and I didn’t breastfeed. I’m selfish, I just look at my breasts as like sexual. I think it’s like incestual, it’s gross. I don’t like it… I couldn’t do it, but I totally support it, I think it’s like, awesome.

[From TMZ video]

Shanna’s boobs are only for sexy times because she read the instructions on the box. No milk is coming out of those budget fun bags. At least she added that bit at the end about supporting breastfeeding. It’s so awesome for other women to be gross and incestual by feeding their hungry babies the way it’s been done since the beginning of time, yay!

Here’s Shanna demonstrating her wisdom:

    Uh…what?! I can’t even…

  3. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    “I think the problem with people like this is that they’re so stupid that they have no idea how stupid they are”. That’s all I’ve got to say to this.

  4. fabgrrl says:

    Well, clearly OTHER women’s breasts just aren’t as sexy as hers, and breastfeeding is alright for THEM. It’s okay, not everyone can be as “sexy” as her.

    • BreeinSEA says:

      This!!! The argument against breastfeeding is so touchy and she doesn’t realise it. I think its cool to do something for my children that has been done since the beginning of human kind. Not for everyone of course based on whatever, but you cant totally bash someone then say oh but its cool if you do it.

  5. Sherry says:

    And Sherry says Shanna Moakler is an idiot.

  6. Dragonlady sakura says:

    Someone’s late for her Mensa meeting!

  7. Adrien says:

    Who cares about Shanna Moakler’s opinion?

  8. Daahling says:

    We shouldn’t even acknowledge this. To each their freaking own.

  9. Chicagogurl says:

    Well if that the case, she should be thinner because mouths are made for sexual things, not eating. Twat!

  10. Lemony says:

    “budget fun bags”

  11. annaloo. says:

    kudos to her resigning after the Carrie Prejean BS, but we can’t always have everything in a person.

  12. ugh…she is sooo sooo sooo dumb…she is that person we all know who you want to see riding their bike one day and you just want to open your car door at the optimum time… just saying….

  13. TOPgirl says:

    Dumb women! Why bother having children? You should just sell your jugs to grown men who will suck on it all day long!

  14. Amanda says:

    Uh, yeah. This woman must have an IQ in the single digits if she thinks that.

  15. teehee says:

    What a dumb product of our messed up society.

  16. Samigirl says:

    I guess my daughter and I are incestuous lesbians then. 1 year, 8 days and going strong!

  17. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Once the “word” incestual comes out of your mouth, I’m done listening.

  18. Sarah says:

    What an asshole. How can it be awesome and gross and incestual at the same time, moron?

  19. Amanda says:

    At least if she said something like she made a mistake for getting breast implants and therefore she wasn’t able to breastfeed her kids I’d have some degree of respect for her.

  20. florencia says:

    Well, that’s how she thinks!, it’s ok, just because you think breastfeeding is natural, doesn’t mean everybody has to do it. I feel like her, but i don’t want to have children at all.

  21. OhDear says:

    Someone wants attention.

  22. Audrey says:

    Lol I read this article while breastfeeding my daughter :p

  23. mommak918 says:

    Breastfeeding mom here and proud! 19months with my first son…and nursing my 6month old son now.

    Women like this just make me roll my eyes…and thank God I don’t have to deal w/morons like this on a daily basis.

  24. Sara says:

    I had a baby four months ago and wasnt able to breastfeed it was devastating to me. I felt like an awful mother especially when you read about what risks you are taking with your child’s health if you formula feed. It sets them up for an increased risk of so many diseases and breastfeeding actually helps the brain grow properly. I personally find it selfish for women o not breastfeed if they are able for at least a couple of months. I understand there are circumstances where you can’t and I am one of them. It really sucked!

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Sara – don’t be so hard on yourself! You did the best you could. Your baby will be just fine. I remember reading an article about all the toxic chemicals in breast milk and thinking NOW WHAT? Don’t waste another minute on this issue.

    • Ag says:

      Sara, your baby will be perfectly fine. Not everyone can do it, physically or otherwise. There’s a lot of shaming and guilt involved in the simple act of feeding our babies, whether it’s breast or formula feeding. I wish we wan would just take it easy on ourselves and each other. :)

    • JustaGirl says:

      I’m so sorry. I was unable to BF also. I was devastated like you. To give you hope, my sons are both very healthy, very active & fit, and very intelligent at 10 and 12. Although I believe BFing does give them a boost, there’s so much more to how they develop than how they were fed the first months of their lives. Keep your head up. You obviously love your child very much so I imagine things will work out just fine. :)

    • Bodhi says:

      I was only able to nurse my son for about 6 weeks & it truly broke my heart when I stopped. Your baby will be just fine! I know its hard, but don’t worry about :-)

    • jaye says:

      Don’t beat yourself up, Sara. It can be disappointing, I know. It’s okay to feel that, but what’s important is that you have a healthy, happy baby who has a healthy, happy mommy. I wasn’t able to breastfeed my son, either but, 17 years later, he’s intelligent, healthy and happy. Cut yourself some slack. Being a mommy is hard enough.

    • Sam says:

      Sara, it happens. I stopped nursing after 4 days. I started working out very heavily soon after birth (I box frequently, so I was boxing, weight training, running, etc.) Very heavy exercise can cause lactic acid to build up in your milk and can sour it. Lots of babies will reject soured milk because it tastes weird (my son did). Personally, I could either stop nursing or stop exercising the way I liked. Personally, I just stopped nursing. If I wasn’t training, I was mentally miserable and what kind of mom would I be then? My kid needs a happy mom more than he needs breastmilk. He’s formula fed and in the 99th percentile for both height and weight (though I’m sure his Scandanavian genes helped there). The doctor raves about how healthy he is. I have friends who nurse and their kids struggle, healthwise. Health is too multi-faceted to be determined by any one thing mommy does or does not do.

    • MissM says:

      How absurd for you to say that not being able to breastfeed made you feed awful, then you go on to slam other women who can’t or won’t do the same as “selfish.” You’re part of the problem. Stop judging other women.

  25. RobN says:

    She’s pretty stupid; maybe she just doesn’t know what incestual means?

  26. Dimebox says:

    Well Shanna obviously never learned that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt. Smile pretty, Shanna, and keep those “incestual” worries out of your empty little head.

  27. Jay says:

    My first reaction was same as everyone else here, but to play Devil’s Advocate, some women do orgasm from nipple stimulation (and thus breast feeding) and I suppose that could legitimately disturb some of them?

    • Ag says:

      Nipple stimulation from sex DOES NOT in any way, shape or form resemble nipple stimulation during breast feeding. Only someone who hasn’t experienced both could think that, seriously.

    • Kloops says:

      Breastfeeding does not involve “nipple feeding.” if your nipples are being “nursed” you’re doing it wrong. Totally different sensations and mechanisms.

    • mommak918 says:

      Yeaaa, noooo.

      Breastfeeding does not feel like nipple stimulation….in the least.

      • Jay says:

        I understand that it’s typically not so, but as I mentioned above there are evidently rare people for which this can be a problem. I never suggested it was common. Still even if she was one for whom it might be a problem, this probably wouldn’t been the best thing for her to have said.

      • Sam says:

        There is actually a body of psychological research about women seeking therapy for guilt or depression they develop because they get sexual stimulation from nursing. There’s actually a sensation called a “nursing orgasm” that some women actually do experience.

        So yeah, no, but yeah. You’re off base with that one.

      • Lucrezia says:

        I agree with Jay and Sam. Sexual arousal from breastfeeding is a real thing and relatively common. Arousal to the point of orgasm is rare, but still real.

        It could be what’s happening here.

        It’s not clear whether she actually tried breastfeeding (and it freaked her out), or whether she just went “No! Breasts are for sexy-time!” and refused to try.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Point me to the literature on this guys. I have NEVER seen nor heard of it. First off, one’s nipples are very tender after childbirth (and I DON’T mean sensitive in a good way). Second, they get even more tender once your milk comes in. So link me some articles in reputable journals or say no more.
        I really respect women who try to breastfeed, they may be lowering their chances of breast cancer down the line, they will lose the baby weight faster, their early milk is protective from infections, and the hormones released help them bond with their babies. So they are trying to do their best. Agree no one should EVER feel guilty if it doesn’t work out. Sad, yes, but NEVER guilty.

  28. Holden says:

    Drugged out famewhore, shut yo mouf.

  29. Eugenia says:

    I think this chick is trolling. Seriously who was thinking about her or talking about her before this asinine comment. Gurl, have a seat. Chick is Samantha Brick’ing the public but using the mommy base (which can be pretty rabid) to get her shine.

  30. mar says:

    It is her opinion, so I am not going to crucify her. I did not breast feed and so many people made me fell horrible about it.

    • judyjudy says:

      I’m sorry someone made you feel bad about your choice. I did/do nurse mine and people made me feel bad, too. It’s sucky all the way around. We should lift each other up and be a supportive community all around. New mothers need each other but we’ve set up this system of tearing each other down at every opportunity. Instead of worrying how men bring us down we should look at how terribly we treat one another.

  31. Palermo says:

    What did she think those things were for, to entice men? She’s too dumb to have kids

  32. Ag says:

    Who is this idiot, why is she talking, and why the hell are her moronic statements even being acknowledged?

  33. bokchoi says:

    why does anyone care what this twit says?

  34. diva says:

    I don’t think breast feeding is incestual but I don’t think its for everybody either. I had no interest in breast feeding my son and people acted like I murdered someone. To each their own. There is nothing wrong with breast feeding BUT there nothing wrong with NOT breast feeding either.

  35. Kloops says:

    I was largely indifferent to this story despite having nursed my own kids bc I have no idea who this idiot is BUT this comment below is so awesome I just have to thank CB for the morning laugh:

    ” boobs are only for sexy times because she read the instructions on the box.”

  36. Isa says:

    Eh some women really hate breast feeding. It makes them feel icky. I don’t really care what they do as long as they don’t care what I do.

    • claire says:

      Totally. She said it’s awesome that people do it, but it made her feel weird so she didn’t do it. Big f’n deal. She’s not crucifying all women who breast feed. People are so freaking sensitive and horrified that others have opinions different from them sometimes.

      • Isa says:

        Yup. Just as long as she’s not making rude comments to nursing mothers or moms nursing in public I don’t really care. She explained her feelings on the issue, which I don’t agree with. But breasts have become so sexualized it really isn’t surprising.

  37. Tessa says:

    I believe the word she was looking for is incestuous. Crack head.

  38. Jess v says:

    Bah, she is a nobody, she is only saying this to get attention.

  39. DeltaJuliet says:

    Shanna’s boobs are only for sexy times because she read the instructions on the box.

    Ok, THAT was awesome lol

  40. Jenny says:

    My husband’s comment to this: the braintrust has spoken; breastmilk is obviously there for a mid-act snack for the man during sex.

  41. Lisa says:

    She sounds like, super smart. Like, total MENSA candidate. Like.

  42. hopperlea says:

    I guess I was an incestuous freak with my son, when I breastfed him for 25 months. Eww! What a gross bitch I am.

    Dumb skanky twat!

  43. some bitch says:

    I can’t even. This woman is an asshole.

    Attitudes like hers only push the idea that objectifying women is A-OK and that breasts exist exclusively for men’s sexual gratification.

  44. Runs with Scissors says:

    What’s a leading cause of death for pregnant women in America?


    Man, how messed up is our society?

    Women pay a fortune to get carved up and have plastic sewed into their chests, get cut up for elective C-sections so their vaginas don’t get “stretched out,” don’t want to breast feed since their breasts might get “saggy” and now apparently breasts are for f*cking and feeding our babies is like a sex act?

    Is there any part of the female body that ISN’T owned by men? That hasn’t been sexualized beyond recognition?

    Her saying this is extreme, but it’s really only an internalization and extension of all the hatred and degradation of women we’re all bombarded with daily.

    All you beautiful incestuous ladies out there can help change this! Please teach your sons (once you’re done, you know, gettin your rocks off by feeding them) that a woman’s body does not exist only to please them and show your daughters you expect more of them than to just look pretty (they need to know how to cook and clean too!!!)

    • Sam says:

      Forgive me, but how does it go from “breasts are sexual” to “breasts are owned by men?” My body is sexual. I consider my breasts (and a lot of other places) to be sexual. Doesn’t mean they don’t have other functions, but they are sexual as well. I didn’t start to think that when I got a man. Isn’t it also a tenant of feminism that a woman’s sexuality belongs to her and she can feel about her body however she wants? Moakler isn’t saying that she feels that way because she has implants, or posed for Playboy – but that’s what everybody is assuming. I’m just always unimpressed with the argument that arguing that something is “sexual” means that a woman is being controlled by a man. Sexuality exists independently of what a man wants.

    • Ana says:

      “Is there any part of the female body that ISN’T owned by men? That hasn’t been sexualized beyond recognition?

      Her saying this is extreme, but it’s really only an internalization and extension of all the hatred and degradation of women we’re all bombarded with daily.”

      That’s actually what got to me about her comments. I don’t care for her opinion, but it really speaks volumes about societal issues re: women’s bodies.

  45. Kitten Mittens says:

    Ugh. The fact that she used “like” way too much times in her quote doesn’t help, but her point is valid despite the women here that just want to hate someone say.

    She views her breasts (which she sunk money into for purely sexual reasons) as an extension of her sexuality. Nothing wrong with that.
    To view breasts like that probably made her feel weird having a baby nurse on her since she related that sensation to an intimacy with an adult. She said it wasn’t for her and that’s fine. She’s not saying breast feeding should be banned because it’s incest.
    She chimed in on this subject when that mag cover came out with the woman who still breast fed her 10 year old child. THAT is CREEPY.

    She’s harmless. She finds breast feeding weird. She’s not going to get in the way of you breast feeding your child. I don’t see the big deal here.

    • Sam says:

      That’s what I always find weird. So many of the women I know who are BFing champtions describe themselves as feminists. But I’ve always found it inconsistent when they argue that “breasts aren’t sexual, they’re for nursing.” If I as a woman have complete control over my body and the right to (or right to refuse) whatever I want, don’t I have the right to see my breasts as purely sexual? Some women see their breasts as part of their sexuality only; lots of women can see them as both for nursing and sexual. Why does anybody care that one woman (who was a Playmate) chooses to see her breasts as purely sexual? The whole statement is a non-issue, to me.

      • judyjudy says:

        I don’t care what anyone does with their breasts, I just don’t like being called incestuous or gross when using my breasts for their biologically intended purpose.

      • Sam says:

        Judy, I think your issue is that you’re taking it as a jab at nursing in general. She never says that. She says that FOR HER, nursing felt gross. She actually says at the end that she supports nursing for others. Methinks you protest too much.

        And just to note, plenty of “biologically intended stuff” is gross. What should make nursing any different as a matter of opinion?

      • Jenna says:

        But she never specifically said that for HER only it was gross and ‘incestual’. She said thought ‘IT’ to be gross and incestual, so one could interpret it that way. Besides, how could you make comments like that and then add ‘but, like I think it’s awesome’ as an after-thought before you run away?

      • Sam says:

        jenna, if she was making a blanket statement, would she have ended it with “but I think it’s awesome?” No, she just would have said it. It’s pretty clear from the context that she is speaking only for herself. But I get the impression that most are seeking a reason to be offended.

      • Jenna says:

        I think she added it at the end because she knew she made a statement that would offend some; like when people say a statement and quickly add “But I’m all for it” or “But I have friends that are” etc. It’s just a bit contradictory, in my opinion, to describe something using words that are associated with bad connotations and then claim for it to be ‘awesome’ in the next breath.

  46. jaye says:

    I wonder how long it will be before she issues a statement either apologizing for, or clarifying her statement? Or do people mostly not give two squirts what comes out of her piehole?

  47. Jolinda says:

    Ehhh… to each their own. She’s really pretty.

  48. yeahright says:

    I am pretty militant about breastfeeding and working through problems associated with it… but I really wasnt all that offended by what she had to say. It’s how she felt, its how she saw it, and she answered the question honestly. A lot of women feel this way and I would much prefer to hear “I think its gross so I wont do it” rather than “Well I tried… kind of… it just didnt work out.”

  49. Alexa says:

    I think Bimbos like her are just for sexy times with other empty-headed blobs. Using her for any other purpose – like parenthood or non-x-rated contributions to society – would be gross and a total waste of everyone’s time.

  50. Elisabeth says:

    I wonder if Eve turned to Adam
    “these fun bags are for sexy time not breastfeeding..get your naked ass to the store and get some enfamil”

  51. LeeLoo says:

    I think we all know that breast is best but I can’t knock Shanna for feeling that way, she has a right to her opinion. Breastfeeding isn’t for everyone. At least she is honest about it and added that she supports women who make different choices. It sucks so many women are made to feel horrible no matter what choice they make.

    I think as women we all should be more supportive of each other instead of bashing women who disagree with our choices. A lot of the comments on here make me realize that this is a super hot topic for a lot of women. I get that there are many women who disagree but instead of bashing that woman maybe find a way to be supportive even when you disagree with other women. There’s a war against women in this world and we won’t stop it by squabbling over petty issues such as working mothers versus staying at home and breast feeding versus formula. There are so many women whose right as human beings are trampled on every day, we should be more celebatory of our differences rather than snarky about it. We have the right to make these choices when so many women don’t even have a choice as to whom they will marry.

  52. Amanda says:

    What an idiot. She added that part at the end when she realized how stupid she sounded. Look, I tried to breast feed my daughter and it just didn’t work out. Instead of stressing myself out about it, I chose to go with the bottle. We all make different choices as mothers and everybody should just mind their own beeswax! I’m so sick of this being an issue.

  53. Trudy says:

    My older sister did not breastfeed her two kids at all… she tried but it just wasn’t for her.

  54. Nanz says:

    She thinks it’s incestuous and she supports it = she supports incest? Great. She’s clearly done her homework.

  55. Lulu.T.O. says:

    I hate it when women say that breast feeding ‘just wasn’t for them’. It’s not for YOU, it is for the BABY. At least she admits she was selfish in her decision.

    • Amy says:

      I respectfully disagree on this point. Not everyone has the option to breastfeed, of course, but if a woman who can breastfeed chooses not to do it, I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing for her OR for the baby. For some women, breastfeeding is stressful or difficult or just not something they want to do. In that case, I think a bottle-fed baby who has a happy mommy who cuddles him while he eats may be better off than a nursing baby who has an uncomfortable, stressed out mother who would rather be doing anything else. You have to do what is right for you AND the kid, and I don’t think that’s selfish. I think our kids pick up on our emotional state more than we think they do.

      This is coming from a militant supporter of breastfeeding rights, whenever and wherever. I chose to breastfeed my kids, but I would never blame or shame a mother who could not or chose not to breastfeed.

      Thank you to those of you who noted Shanna’s neologism! “Incestual,” haha. What’s more offensive, the attitude or the grammar?

    • lambchops says:

      I hate it when women get all judgy about breastfeeding. I breastfed and found the midwives totally obnoxious about it. Is it better? Yes, absolutely. But some women really can’t deal with it. Are they selfish? No, not necessarily. They could be awesome Moms in many other ways. In the US, when you have to go back to work when your baby is 2 months old or less, some women don’t want to go there, and I wouldn’t judge them. It would be hard to form that routine and bond and then stop to go back to work.

  56. Bizzyb says:

    She’s gross. Wash your face.

  57. VanillaFrosting says:

    What an idiot. Anyone who thinks breastfeeding is incest or in any way unnatural is wrong. Breastfeeding is objectively natural. Natural as sleeping, having sex, expelling waste, and of course eating!

    A lot of breastfeeding moms here! I am also currently breastfeeding my 8 week old. :)

  58. phlyfiremama says:

    THIS is talking about what is gross?? HAHAHAHAHAHA

  59. Mirna says:

    But she lets a dog – which licks its nether regions for fun – put its mouth and feet on her face. We’re dealing with a real genius here, folks.

  60. Noinin says:

    Coming from a woman whose boyfriend was at some point suspected of innapropriate behavior towards her daughters… Now that is gross. Breast milk is what’s best for a baby. Some women can’t, some women don’t want to, no big deal. But I don’t think she should stay stuff like that. Thank god nobody cares anyway.

  61. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Anyone who finds breastfeeding incestuous, gross, perverse or unnatural is a moron. Plain and simple.

    It is one thing if you are unable to breastfeed or perhaps for whatever reason uncomfortable with doing it yourself… but to call it any of the above that I mentioned, yeah, that would make the person a moron in my book.

    Considering that’s the exact purpose for which breasts were created…

  62. Genevieve says:

    I’ve had a few interactions with her & she is thee worst. She thinks she’s very privileged & above it all. Can’t stand her.

  63. Moi says:

    As a nurse, I say… What a dip shit. I guess there are a lot of infants out there who are smarter than her.

  64. Bailey says:

    What 38 year old lady would use “like” so many times?? What an idiot!!! I’m guessing that she must hate her mom if she ever breast fed her. And that through all her 3 births, she demanded to have C-sections because the thought of a kid coming out of her vagina instead of a dick is gross. This is the same loser who fought with her ex because he doesn’t want her child molesting uncle anywhere near their kids. Hopefully, her kids turn out to be 10 billion times smarter and more respectful than she is.

  65. Jennifer12 says:

    Shanna was, I think, just speaking personally. She’s been an amazing warrior for gay rights, even resigning when Carrie Prejean was in the pageant. She’s a pretty nice woman.

  66. lambchops says:

    This could be a bit of idiocy and a bit of a phobia. I have a nurse friend who refused to breast feed because she said breasts were for sexy times. But I suspected it just totally freaked her out. Whatever, if her kid is loved and well cared for, women do whatever they need to do.

  67. diane says:

    someone should tell her the purpose of breasts on the female anatomy is solely for the purpose of feeding their young and not for “sexy time” There should be a test you have to pass before you can procreate. God help us.

  68. Trashaddict says:

    Maybe part of what’s annoying about her is the pervasive attitude lately that kids are accessories, that they shouldn’t require hard work or any sacrifice on the part of the parents. I’m not saying everybody who doesn’t breastfeed their kids is like this, just that I see this attitude more and more. And it doesn’t help when people say things like this because societal attitudes do make a difference in people’s health choices. And this is actually a health choice.
    I’m not a helicopter parent but there are too many babies as publicity ploys in Hollyweird. Oddly, it makes me respect Jennifer Aniston. She’s realized that parenthood is not her deal and she’s had the sense not to procreate.

  69. Chrissy says:

    Wow, must you blow up her tranny-looking face so close to the camera the very second I click on this page???????

    Judging by the show Meet The Barkers, it seems like she enjoys getting pregnant by rich, relevant, and famous dudes for the obvious reason: To spend his money and pay nannies to care for her many kids 24 /7.

    As for her comments here, I wonder if she NEVER bathes, powders, nor diaper-changes her little ones because private parts are for sexy times only, and that it would be incestUAL to look or clean her babies’ naked bodies even for hygenic purposes.

    As some rapper would say, you cannot turn a ho into a housewife. As Shanna is one dumb, clueless, brainless, selfish, skanky ho!
