Mom and Dad

So this morning I woke up to hear my mom and dad having sex at nine in the morning, while us "children" are sitting in the next room. Afterwards, dad and I went to the post office and when we came home they went into the bedroom again...my mom's not the quietest person in bed...but it just makes me feel uncomfortable, I mean can't they do it later while we're asleep. I'm 18 and it's just making me uncomfortable...any advice?

This is an interesting situation. I would express everything you just posted here to them so they know how you're feeling.

However, I commend them for having a healthy sex life, and that helps them to have a healthy marriage and family life.

But should I feel that way? I mean I think thats great that they have that healthy of a sex life, and i understand that it keeps the marriage happier, but what if it doesn't keep the family happy? My brother's and i feel the same way about the situation. I have talked to my mom about it but it doesn't seem to have done anything, if it has it has just increased it. Which it seems like they 1) dont't care about how we feel. 2) It makes me feel very uncomfortable in my own home, pushing me to move out faster than planned.

I wouldn't sweat it. Before you know it you will be moving out. It's a good thing for them to have a close relationship. When the kids leave, some marriages have nothing left to them. The only thing that kept them together was the kids. Other than that, I 'd invest in an IPOD and let them be.

That is exactly why I don't have a healthy one! lol! :P


While waiting for my teens to not be in earshot of us, I either fall asleep, or decide I will try it again next month!


Honey, perhaps you could take you and your brothers out once in while and let mom and dad have that healthy alone time. It really is needed. Talk to them and tell them you are doing this so they can have some alone time, and then tell them that it disturbs you to hear them so if they could just arrange to avoid sex till then, that'd be great!
