No children here but I will say that I agree with a couple of others here. #1- If I'm not getting some in my own home neither is anybody else. #2- I believe I would have raised a child or children to use discretion ( sneaky also comes to mind), and that would be okay. I can remember being walked in on by a partners mother(obviously years ago LOL), I can tell you this: it is very surprising to an unaware parent. Seems it can be a bit more surprising when it's people of the same sex.
That's funny. I remember having impromptu coffee with my friend in bed. I had been dressing, so I wore no top. We just sat on the bed and conversed, when, his mother walked in. I think thats when it really hit her that he was gay.
My youngest, the Brad Pitt type looking one, when he was 14 used to sleep on the couch in the family room a lot. There was a sliding glass door that went into the unfenced back yard. We found out why he wanted to sleep there one day when a big tough looking guy rode up on his motorcycle and wanted to know if I knew that his daughter, who lived just down the street with her mother, had been sneeking into our house at night. Seems her mother caught her coming in early one morning and had admitted that she had been in our family room with our son. The Hell's Angel type father had been called by the mother and rode his Harley to VA from NJ to confront us. Fortunately, probably for me, we were able to sort it out without bloodshed. Now the son is 36 and when I visit him and his unmarried SO, they let me sleep on their couch. The SO is not the same girl. I wonder what they would do if I brought my girl friend with me?
In my misspent youth I knew how to be a little discreet. It didn't stop the sex in the house, but it stopped uncomfortable answers to questions. Besides, we had a pool and a pool house, could always meet out there if the need arose ('cept in Michigan it is cold 9 months of the year...). So, my kids are little still, but trying to anticipate the future.
if one is single with an adult kid living in the house one has to set an example to the kid by not running around oneself and then expect same thing from that kid . If the single person has serious relationship and the kid doesnt then he or she can have sex outside somewhere may be back seat of the car or behind your back in the house ;-) which they will anyway !!!
