    I do not believe you can until you have had a baby, after you can, even if you are not pregnant, but you must do it with the right stimulation.

    Where do you think the term "Wet-Nurse" comes from?

    Frequent nipple stimulation will release hormones that induce milk production.

    Read that somewhere.

    Lactation without pregnancy
    Women who have never been pregnant are sometimes able to induce enough lactation to breastfeed. This is called "induced lactation". A woman who has breastfed before and re-starts is said to "relactate". If the nipples are consistently stimulated by a breast pump or actual suckling, the breasts will eventually begin to produce enough milk to begin feeding a baby. Once established, lactation adjusts to demand. This is how some adoptive mothers, usually beginning with a supplemental nursing system or some other form of supplementation, can breastfeed.[9] There is thought to be little or no difference in milk composition whether lactation is induced or a result of pregnancy.[citation needed] Rare accounts of male lactation (as distinct from galactorrhea) exist in medical literature.

    Some drugs, primarily atypical antipsychotics such as Risperdal, may cause lactation in both women and men. Also, some couples may use lactation for sexual purposes.

    The way I am reading this, you are asking if milk is stored in the breast at all times.

    The answer is NO

    It can and is PRODUCED in the breast but it is not something that is always there, waiting to be taken like a gallon of milk from the fridge.

    That's the benefit of a woman who is able to produce milk. They can squirt you with it and laugh as part of foreplay.
