44. If a father masturbates in front of his daughter, it is child abuse.
Edited on Sun Feb-11-07 01:41 PM by philosophie_en_rose
His masturbation habits would really be none of my business. It can be healthy and I don't look down on it. However, it is just not okay to masturbate in public or in front of children. Why? Because you're inflicting yourself on others. It involves them in sexual situations and that are neither healthy nor legal.

Children do not have to witness their parents having sex to learn about sex or to believe that it's a normal thing to do. It is not that sex is dirty or bad, but that the parents are behaving inappropriately.

The parents here are not teaching their daughter to celebrate sex or the human body. They are teaching her that it is okay for adults to let her children be involved in their sexual acts - whether as a witness or worse. They are grooming her for pedophiles.

And I seriously question anyone that enjoys having sex in front of children.
