i'd personally feel very uncomfortable having sex in front of my kid (if i had any) or any kid for that matter, as it would be way too embarassing for me. plus, i'd be too scared it might also affect the child in one or two ways. one it might scar them or they might develop being into incest and being attracted to their mom or me. that would be something i would not want to deal with. lol. sorry. that's just me.
eta: not that im saying there's anything wrong with incest, nor am i supporting it. i just wouldn't want to deal with it myself.
This is already becoming the weirdest thread I have come across..
"not that im saying there's anything wrong with incest."
i love how you took that statement completely out of context, as i even said I WASN'T SUPPORTING IT EITHER.
Yeah, but why basically sit on the fence and not just outright condemn it? It's not like it's a matter of personal taste... like your picking the color of bathroom tile lol
let me ask you, do you like or dislike cannibalism? Most people wouldn't take a neutral stance on that issue. If i was to say "Hey Fred, what say we get together on the weekend and BBQ us up some neighbors?" I would assume Fred would decline.
Similarly, if I was to say 'Hey Fred, got a hot date with a family member tonight?".. Fred would most likely take offense at the mere suggestion
that's true. i guess you got a point there. i can honestly say that i don't condone cannibalism in any form. lol. there, i took a stance on something! as far as the incest crap goes, im completely against it to be honest with you, as it's not my forte. however, i did read a forum here once about incest, and was very surprised to see how many hubbers supporting it. therefore, i wanted to be neutral, as i so don't feel like debating with any moron over it that condones it. i really don't. it'll be the damn matrix trilogy debate all over again. where some whiny little hubber b***ed about how i didn't like their movie, so they started to make fun of me for it. that's why i wanted to take a neutral stance on incest, as i know on hubpages certain topics can get you in trouble with certain hubbers. lol. sorry, im just speaking from experience here.
It's "not your forte"? Let me avoid all personal attacks here and straight out say that there are hubbers on here that need serious professional help.
In his defense, iron.. i once got into a long heated agreement with a gentlemen who offered a scientific rational for men to have sex with minors.. sometimes you just don't want to get roped into chatting with an idiot
Maybe you and Greek one can take in a showing of the Matrix on the way there!
a brothel AND a movie theater in ONE building!!
get you pop corn in one room.. and get it buttered in another!
i agree. BRILLIANT! now all we need is some hot female masseuses there too, then we'll really have a party.
i was thinking about prostitutes.. but you can have a massage if you want lol
so, let me get this straight... you said "not that there's anything WRONG with incest" to please the mob?
why do you care what someone who condones incest thinks?!!!
and to the OP, you know it is wrong. that is why pornography is for HELLO adults ONLY.
this isn't about adults' sensibilities...it is about protecting children and theirs. it's about respecting their boundaries. if sex in front of children was ok, then it would also be ok for people to just strip and start having sex in public, wouldn't you think?
restricting sex to private bedrooms away from prying eyes, especially little ones, isn't about being puritainical or uptight. it's about respect, period. no one wants to see that.
OP, if you have seen this occuring, you need to tell someone with authority that adults are having sex in front of little kids. that's wrong and immoral besides.
yeah, your right. i completely agree with your statement, as i don't think anyone here could have said it better cossette.
as far as me trying to be neutral goes, i usually try to be as unbiased as possible when it comes to controversial subject matters. simply, because i really don't like confrontations of any kind. don't get me wrong, im not a coward or anything like that, as i will stand up for myself if i have to. and i've been known to be vengeful to those that cross me, but i try to avoid it whenever possible. hence, why i normally avoid talking about politics, religion and race a lot. simply because i don't like to offend people. sure, i don't mind throwing directors and actors under the bus if i feel their movies stink, but it's a lot more harder to judge an average person. anyways, i hope that explains it, and i apologize if anything i said came off as offensive.
Steven no need to apologize to me. if that's what you were doing, i mean. i hate confrontation too but i always speak out for children, it is just the way i am. children are one of the few creatures along with animals that people think it's ok to disrespect or hurt, even, just because they are small or can't defend themselves. i sometimes think people think small person=small feelings, which is horribly innacurate. sorry for making you feel bad, if i did.
and anyone who condones incest regardless of the age of the particpant or the so-called consent can go to aych eee double ell.
As you say that you have seen a lot of people having sex in front of their child, I'm actually more suprised that you know a lot of people who have sex in front of you.
I think it depends on the age of the child, and also whether 'in the presence of' means that they are on the sofa next to you trying to watch TV, or if they are in the next room or something.
"I have seen a lot of couples having sex in the presence of their children"
Where do you live.. the Playboy mansion?
this reminds me of a joke i heard years ago,
a boy asks his mom if he can take a shower with her, she says, i think you're getting a little old but ok this is the last time. in the shower he points to her chest and says what are those. she says they're my head lights. he points between her legs and says what's that. she says it's my bush.
the next day the boy asks to take a shower with his dad. the dad says it's the last time. so in the shower he points down at his dad and says what's that. the dad says it's my snake.
that night the boy hears noises coming from his parents room. he goes and and yells mommy turn your head lights on quick, daddy's snake is in your grass.
hope this goes well on this topic,
I had 3 girls and we woould never have sex in front of them or another person.
Remarried now , no kids , we enjoy it in all sorts of places outside ! but not in front of anyone
Would there be harm to all children or maybe to just a few?
Would you want to see public sex? I watch porno, and it doesn't harm me and makes me feel better about women!
If you have "seen it" why did you not remove the child from the seeing, er seen, er scene???? What a crock!
I know this world is getting weider by the day, but to have sex in front of you children takes it to another level of weidness.
but weirder still eddie is - this party is claiming to have "seen" it and seen it "a lot. This has to be a crock!
I am also curious as why you watching other couples have sex in front of their children, thats an episode of Jerry Springer, I must have missed.
Im guessing you have good binoculars?
As for the theory of "Is it ok for children to see their parents have sex"
I wouldnt be comfortable personally as I was raised in an oppressive, anti-sex American regime that only allows sex education to come from HBO, cologne advertisements and uncomfortable videos in Middle school.
The early statement about such a thing being abuse points to the personal shame and hang ups of the commenter.
Historically, sex wasnt a hidden or shameful act, many indigenous cultures have a much different view of this question and most likely also have a healthier conversation with their children about the nature of sex and its repercussions.
its silly to be so influenced by idiot puritans..
You know we as humans havent always had seperate rooms and heat that reaches our entire dwellings. It used to be common for entire families to share one room ... yet somehow children were conceived? Centuries of abuse and improper behavior?..I cant agree.
Obviously moving in some very weird circles to have often SEEN couples having sex in front of their children...
o.k sex in front of ... or in the same room as children ... weather sleeping or not is sick shit sick .......really freaking sick and that is all i have to say about that
Wait a second, you've seen this? No, it's not alright for a parent to have sex in the presence of a child. Child will not understand what is happening and it could be psychologically damaging to them.
My answer to the original question: That's just, ummm, for lack of a better word - GROSS!!
How about a prostitute who gives massages and makes great popcorn?? Can we have a few male ones, too?
I wouldn't do this purposely but it might be okay if the child is two or younger. Once I was making love to my girlfriend and her son who was two at the time walked in on us. I panicked but she held me tight against her and kept me calm. She talked calmly to her son like nothing unusual was happening. He turned and left the room and we got changed.
So...Greek One is sexist. He wants the guys to be able to have all the fun. What about us fun-loving women??
I don't want no steenkin' parking lot atteendant! I want a 40 or 50-year-old guy with green eyes, salt and pepper hair, a hairy chest, nice hands, energy, and a wild imagination! Oh, I would also prefer one who's slightly overweight, tanned, and muscular, with good hands.
That is kinda scarily accurate. My eyes are usually brown - but they go green when I am horny or angry.
I wonder if habee is my secret stalker. I have one - I just never knew who it was.
Hmmm...I've never seen Mark's hands, either. How much does he charge?? I think MK would be too precise, anyway. Someone wild and crazy and maybe a little scary would be a better short-term match. lol
I've always wondered how all those co-sleeping people manage it. I mean, early on there's probably not much sex going on anyway and the kid won't remember it if there is, but I've known people who continued co-sleeping until the kid was 5 years old and beyond.
Man, I read this whole thread hoping for the one gem from some hippy-naturalist or something that was going to make the argument for how sex was beautiful and natural and "why hide it from our kids?" only to discover a mournfully normal group of people for the most part mocking a ridiculous question. Way to let me down, people. Morality is so boring.
This is not right, this is actually the sickest and nastiest thing to do to in front of a child. Letting them see what you are doing with someone that should be private..
I think the whole idea of a forum question such as this is brainless.
Ditto. Just when you think they couldn't get more outrageous, they do!
Kudos to all--this question has been well handled! "No!!"
NO,NO,NO,......CHILDREN SHOULD HAVE A PROCESS AS TO HOW AND WHAT THEY ARE TO EXPERIENCE AT CERTAIN TIMES IN LIFE.
THEY SHOULD NOT GROW UP BEFORE THEIR TIME.
NO! wtf is wrong with you! how have u seen couples having sex infront of their child? you should stop sneaking in to houses with your knife
Hell NO! And this would be a time to call Social Services if there is no family member to call!
hell yeah! how else those little b*stards going to learn about the birds and the bees. whoo hooo!
you know, there's a time to joke and a time to be serious. it appalls me that people are cracking jokes in this thread. some things should be off-limits, and that is children.
It is actually considered a form of child abuse and if reported they will come in and take the children out of your home. does that answer your question
A big fat NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember once in the outback two cows were spying on us and that was bad enough.
It is just not on, never, ever.
is it not obvious to everyone else that since the op "supremejoe" joined a short time ago, has 3 hubs, and this is their first post here, no doubt this is one of those posts that intends to get people's attention. No more. No less. It worked too! Now I see what gets hubber attention queeeck!
There have been a number of posts like this lately that are intended to titillate and maybe solicit sex. Their intention is to get people excited. So giving that question any credence and even bothering to answer is sort of funny! really funny to me! You all got punked! hehehehe

It has been a gray area for a long time that in the UK, sex below the age of 16 is illegal and many frown on it. I'll be honest, I lost my virginity at 15, however I am not a criminal, I have lead a community driven life and am a law abiding citizen.In this day and age, children are exposed to sex...
