no.  they haven’t done anything since late 1971 (judging by my younger brother’s date of birth lol).  They’ve slept apart as far back as I can remember.  

I did see her boob once.  Scarred me for life.

I’ve seen them do it on a boat, in the rain, against a window pane, atop the piano and below the dining room table..here there and everywhere, it was like wild kingdom in that house, mind you this was mostly after I was 16, coming and going a lot, so they figured they had the place to themselves, then I walk in…ooops!  So two things happened, I started making a lot of noise whenever I got home and taking a LONG freaking time to get in the door AND I realized that just because you’ve been together for 30+ years, the fire sure as hell doesn’t go out….rock on Mom and Dad!

No, but I found a porn DVD at my dad’s house when I was house sitting for him and his girlfriend one weekend. I was browsing the shelf for a movie to watch, and lo and behold, there’s the porn. Right there on the living room shelf next to the regular movies.

I texted my brother and he said I should pop it into the DVD player and leave it there to mess with them. I couldn’t bring myself to do it, but I thought the whole situation was hilarious (mostly because my dad’s girlfriend is white and the title of the DVD was “Black dicks with white chicks,” LMAO).

I never even saw my parents open-mouth kiss… But my dad is kind of touchy-feely in a jr high way with his new gf, it’s awkward. Her son (I’m 25, he’s 30) also thinks it is really uncomfortable… That being said, I’d blame the strict Christian morals for teaching you that sex is sinful, not the fact that you saw your parents having sex. As icky as it is to think about your parents doing it, it’s natural and it’s nice to know that they were in love, right? I always wondered whether my parents were really in love, since I never even saw them kiss passionately or anything. I was raised Catholic and when I first became sexually active, guilt was a biiiig (negative) part of that experience; it took me a long time and a lot of conscious thought about it to get past that. So maybe it’s not so much about forgetting what you saw as it is about re-framing that and moving past it. Good luck!

E.T.A.: I just re-read the part about my dad and his gf, and all I can think is… WHO in their right mind would behave that way knowing their grown children were in the room watching?

My parents haven’t kissed in 8 years, I can’t imagine them having sex since my sister was born, and thank them everyday for not scarring me with the image of them being sexual.

Im the oldest of 10 children. My parents were like rabbits. I was 19 when they had my last sibling. The kids next in line to me asked me to have a talk with our parents about birth control. Besides the fact that it was embarassing that my mother and father werent that quiet when they thought we were all asleep.

I think at some point we have all walked in on my parents doing things or at least hearing things. My parents loved each other very much.

On the one hand, I’m glad I never witnessed them doing the deed.  But on the other hand – how sad is it that so many parents’ seem to let their sex lives die?  I mean, I really don’t dig into my parents’ personal lives, so I can’t be sure or anything, but they have slept in different rooms (for snoring reasons…) for years, and I can’t imagine it being as convenient or anything.  I like to think that my FI and I will still be affectionate and intimate and whatnot once we’re older and have kids, even grown kids!  I mean, I wouldn’t parade it out in front of them or anything at all like that, but I can’t imagine it hurts to let your children see and witness that you like each other more than just an occasional peck on the cheek…

I haven’t seen anything but I have gone to find one of them for aomething only to find the bedroom door locked (and I’ve known what that meant since I was a little kid).

Meh – I’m glad to know they are still in love!
