The new luxury for rich Chinese is to suckle from a wet nurse. Drinking breast milk in China is now the rage among the ultra-wealthy in Shenzhen, and it’s even fashionable to employ a wet nurse in order to suckle the breast milk directly.
The price of this service is about 16,000 yuan (US$2600) a month. However, thousands of miles east, in the township of Lijiang, the elementary school children only eat rice soaked in tea, without vegetables. Some children have to use river water to soak their rice.
Rich families are indulgent to the extent of being distasteful, while the poverty of other families is heart-breaking—this is the reality of China. Human milk consumption has triggered heated debate online.
Some people have pointed out that while business tycoons in the United States, such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, are busy giving charitable donations; the Chinese tycoons are busy being concerned with choosing beautiful women and girls, and drinking human milk. Wealthy Chinese men’s behavior, in particular, indicates the level of human depravity and moral decline.
These rich people don’t just stop at drinking human milk—there is now a common fetish of wanting to lie in the arms of a wet nurse to suck directly. This is not for the purpose of nutritional value, but to show off their wealth and to be extravagant.
Presently in China, money can settle anything. The ultra-wealthy appear to be lured by the power of money to no end. Will there be limits to how far this fetish will take them? Perhaps before long, Chinese people will eat human flesh to build better human muscle, under the “guidance” of nutritional experts.
In fact, there have already been reports of people eating aborted baby fetuses for health and beauty reasons. The gap between China’s rich and poor is growing ever wider; it may soon reach a critical tipping point. Some social commentators say that Chinese society is sitting in the crater of a volcano that is about to erupt.
