These days, people need more money than ever to survive. While the cost of living has gone up, people’s wages haven’t matched the rate of inflation, and, because of this, some have gotten seriously creative when it comes to making cash.
One of these people is 24-year-old mom-of-two Rafaela Lamprou, who has decided to sell her breast milk.
Check out the video below to learn about her enterprising business:
After giving birth to her son Anjelo seven months ago, Lamprou, who is from Cyrpus, soon realized that she was producing excess breast milk. Not wanting to waste what nature gave her, she initially decided to donate it to new moms who weren’t so fortunate.
When news of the 24-year-old’s bountiful breasts began to spread, however, she was soon approached by men who wanted her breast milk for a very different reason – to help with their fitness regimes and, well, because they had a fetish for it.
Not wanting to let an opportunity to make some extra cash pass her by, Lamprou decided to sell her breast milk. Now she has made more than $6,000 selling almost 500 liters of breast milk.
Lamprou, who lives with her 33-year-old husband Alex, is continuing to operate this business, but she doesn’t know how long for.
“I gave birth to my son seven months ago. I had a lot of milk and I thought I needed to do something with it so I started storing it,” the 24-year-old revealed.
“But it was too much – it was taking up all the chest freezer. It was full. I didn’t know what to do with it.”
“So I asked a couple of moms who were having trouble breastfeeding if they wanted it. I started giving it away.”
“I liked seeing the new moms faces when I was able to help them,” the mom-of-two revealed.
Lamprou was making two liters of breast milk each day and decided to sell it to men for one euro ($1.24) an ounce.
“I then started to get some inquiries from men. It started with men who were interested in bodybuilding. They say it is good for building muscle mass,” she said.
“But then I started to get inquiries from men with fetishes,” the 24-year-old added. “Now I breastfeed on demand.”
Lamprou has admitted that she has no idea what the fetishists who buy her breastmilk do with it.
“It was a bit strange at first giving breastmilk to a guy with fetishes but as long as it is just that and not asked to show any part of my body, I don’t mind it at all. I am open-minded,” she said.
The 24-year-old revealed that her husband is completely supportive of her unconventional moneymaking scheme.
“I had no idea with my first baby that you could do this kind of thing,” she said. “But now it is quite addictive.”
“I started a Facebook group about it and people approach me on there. I have been made to take tests to ensure I don’t smoke or drink.”
“I am also on a website where men can approach me for the milk. You do get some creeps on there but I avoid them.”
While there is no doubt that Lamprou’s way of making money is novel, we wish her and her family all the best and hope that they enjoy spending the money her breast milk has made.
