maybe it’s me, but…

Sometimes when I’m reading a romance that is heavy on the sex I’ll get totally freaked out if there are kids in the story too.

Makes me think of parent sex.

*brain bleach*

    Well, it didn't until this post.

    Also, I really hope that Mumma J comments on this post. 😀

  2. Mandi says:

    I got freaked out in Faith and Fidelity (<--I think) because they would have sex on the couch while the kids slept upstairs. I was always nervous a kid would wake up. Cause that can happen in a book. 😉

  3. KB/KT Grant says:


    Or how about during an episode of The Walking Dead where mom and dar have sex with their sleeping 9 year old son only a foot away from them?

    Usually the books I read where the H/H get down is when the kids are sleeping over a friend's house.

    In Liberating Lacey by Anne Calhoun that is so full of hawtness to the max, the 37 yr old heroine's mom finds her lover sleeping in her daughter's bed. Too funny.

  4. Since you brought this up Kris…….

    I've caught my parents… said they were “massaging” each other… uh huh YOU CAN'T FOOL A 9 YEAR OLD!!!

  5. Uh, for some reason it doesn't bother me all that much. WTF is wrong wif me?!

  6. Kris says:

    Chris: You're welcome! And I bet you are. 😛

    Mandi: LOL. That's exactly the kind of thing I think when the 'rents are fucking each other in laundries, kitchens, couches, whatever. Makes me cringe.

    Romance = the kids never interrupt their parents public sex scenes. No matter how loud they get.

  7. Kris says:

    KBC: Sex with their son that close? Erm… Icky.

    But even sex with their kids are asleep doesn't really work in erotica or sex-heavy romance when the parents are fucking like monkeys and are screaming 'do me harder'.

    Jackie: OMG! My worst nightmare! PARENTS DON'T HAVE SEX!

    Brain bleach, brain bleach. WHERE IS IT?!

  8. Kris says:

    KC: “Uh, for some reason it doesn't bother me all that much. WTF is wrong wif me?!”

    It's because you're just about to become a parent and don't want to even contemplate the 'not having sex ever again' thing.

    Maybe childbirth will change all that. 😛

  9. Eyre says:

    My parents have never, ever had sex, so it's not something I think about when reading. Now, I do worry about the kids walking in on the characters.

  10. ElaineG says:

    I have to confess….nightmare scenarios like this do not ONLY happen in books!

    My boy: 7 yrs old…asleep…my man and me? ….NOT asleep… asleep: my boy walks in, WHY were you moaning mom??? and what was dad doing to you?….uh?…he was rubbing my back cause it hurt?….go back to sleep k?…ok, but could you stop the moaning, it was keeping me awake…..ACCCCKKKK!!!!!

    Took a LONG damn time to even allow my man to LOOK at me again…seriously!

    PS- I “borrowed” this pic to keep the memory alive lol! *rolls eyes*

  11. KB/KT Grant says:

    I really can't think of a book I've read recently where the H/H were going at it like bunnies with a kid close by.


  12. Kris says:

    Eyre: So parents can have sex, but just not your parents, Eyre? 😛

    Elaine: Swear to God; I'm not pissing myself laughing right now.

    Erm, just gotta go and… do… something…

  13. Kris says:


    KBC: You need to read more m/m.

  14. Eyre says:

    Kris, the word sex isn't in their vocabularies. Also, I know for a fact that I was delivered by the stork.

  15. KB/KT Grant says:

    I was immaculate conception *halo*

  16. Kris says:

    Eyre: Well, I wasn't ever gonna say anything about you being dropped on your head from a height as a baby, but since you admitted it… *kiss, kiss*

    KBC: And was your sister too?? 😛

  17. Eyre says:

    At least I'm not the spawn of Satan. 0:)

  18. Kris says:

    Are you saying that my Mumma fucked the Devil? Sure my daddy can be a total bastard and everything, but that's just rude, Eyre.

  19. In Catholic school, the nuns told one of my brothers that sex takes 15 minutes. After school, he ran home and hollered to my parents “I know you guys had sex for an hour!” (there are 4 of us). My parents, and their guest, just stood there with their jaws on the floor 🙂

  20. Eyre says:

    Kris, I was simply implying that your parents should be commended for taking in demon spawn.

  21. Tracy says:

    That never freaked me out before but it might now because I'll think of this post when I'm reading!

    Mandi – I was always thinking that the kids were gonna walk down the stairs and see them! Total men, not thinking of the kids walking in. lol

  22. Tam says:

    Being a parent … whatever. I don't want to think about my kid having sex. Ewwwwww. She's going to be a virgin until 37. I'm sure of it. 😛

  23. Mandi says:

    Oh good Tracy..just not me..LOL

    And NOW I'm a parent.

    I feel old.

  24. Mumma J says:

    Chris: I am trying to think of something funny to say, but all I can think of is my Kris!

    Eyre: No demon child here! I have the stretch marks to prove it!

    Sissy: I NEVER EVER had loud sex on any couch or floor or whatever!

    I was brought up to be a proper lady. Closed my eyes and thought of the home country!!!! Promise!

  25. nichem says:

    Oh god, your post is giving me bad flashbacks of the time my daughter, then 5, woke up super early and came in our bedroom while my husband and I were going at it. She was so quiet I didn't even realize she was there until she was right beside the bed. I was horrified, of course. Fortunately we were under the covers at least.

    After that we learned to always lock the door.

  26. Kris says:

    Patti: ROFLMAO! That's classic.

    Eyre: “No demon child here! I have the stretch marks to prove it!”

    HA! So there.

    Tracy: “That never freaked me out before but it might now because I'll think of this post when I'm reading!”

    Yet another satisfied customer! *beams*

    Tam: Sure she is… 😛

  27. Kris says:

    Mandi: *pats* There, there, dear. Surely you can't be more than 50.

    Mumma, you just told me you had sex! LALALALALALALALA! I can't read you!

    Richelle: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You know your daughter probably went to school and told everyone for show and tell, right. 😛

  28. Tam says:

    Closed my eyes and thought of the home country!!!!

    If she had to do that, he was doing it WRONG. Lessons needed perhaps. Oh wait that was your DAD.

    Have I squicked you out even more now? 😀

  29. Kris says:

    I hate you.

  30. Mumma J says:

    Tam: Thank you, it's so rare to get a rise out of her!!!

    Sissy: Ha ha ha – you feeling a wee bit awkward? My job is done!

  31. Kris says:

    I hate you both.

  32. orannia says:

    Please, please pass me the brain bleach.

    I have the same reaction when I think someone is going to walk in on the couple… I was reading one of the PsyCop novels recently and I was like 'No, Jacob. Not now'. I was so relieved when it didn't happen 🙂

    Obviously voyerism isn't for me 🙂

  33. Kris says:

    Orannia: You'd think the fact that we read erotica and romance, though, would make us less squeamish. LOL.

  34. Kris, my darling. Yes my parents had sex. I don't think they do anymore tho–they're old now.

    WTH, once, I even saw my birth mother take a dick up her snatch. She was riding cowgirl. I think I was 4. In retrospect, it was a nice, long, thick peen. Sometimes she chose her Johns well.

    Also, LOLZ at yo Mumma!

  35. Kris says:

    Jackie: I'm not talking about this subject anymore… AND STOP ENCOURAGING MY MUMMA!
