A Florida teenager who called 911 last week asked police to place her in a Christian children’s shelter because she “heard her mother having sex.”
Why? She felt “disrespected” by it.
The mother explained to police that she had invited her boyfriend over and “sometime during the visit, her daughter heard them having sex and became upset.” The woman added that “their bedrooms are next to each other and she didn’t intend to wake her daughter up.”
After speaking with a representative from the shelter, the teen decided that she did not want to leave her home because “it was almost time for school.”
The family admitted no sexual abuse was going on in the household but I gather that for a 15 year old, hearing one’s mother have sex might almost count as psychological abuse. Nobody wants to picture their parents’ sex life…
Why is that? I feel the same way, but it is silly, isn’t it? We all know they do it. Why is it so icky to admit it?
I hope that when I was conceived, my mom was having a good time.
I’ve wondered that, too. It’s so strange how sexuality is presented – overt and graphic in a lot of public ways but often privately sinful or somehow horribly wrong in other ways. I wonder if people wind up with sexual hang-ups because there’s often so many mixed messages about it.
