Well, did you? Did it mess you up for life or did it teach you some tricks that have made you into a living freak legend?



For me, fortunately, the answer is no. This would not surprise you if you knew my parents. I don't think they've had sex since my brother (age 25) was conceived...and I don't just mean with each other, I mean with anybody. Horniness definitely does not run in my family. I sometimes wonder how I got here.

Thank you, you just made my stomach lurch.



Luckily, I never actually saw them do it...just heard (from the room over...when I was trying to sleep!!)



And I've seen tons of porn that my dad 'hides' in our house and on his computer )if that counts).That doesn't bother me as much (actually, I find it quite funny), just when I get up in the morning to find my PC infultrated with porno pop-ups and I'm up to my ears in exotic Russian mail-order bride spam!!!! Men!!!

I almost started a thread like this the other day!



Yes, I did walk in on my parents once. If my dad had not yelled at me it would not have been a huge deal. You see, my parents did not have a bedroom door on thier room for several years because they were still building the house. I think my dad still has a blanket for a door.



My dad told me to use the front door for a while instead of going through their room to use the back door. I was a day-dreamy child (about 12 then) and I spaced out and started to go through thier room, My dad was doing push-ups on my mom, sort of. It took a second for it to register, then dad started yelling.



Nudity was not a big deal around our house and I often could hear my mom laughing and whooping, and I knew what they were doing. I wish he had just TOLD me why I was to use the front door. It would have made me think.



Our bedroom has a broken lock and I just tell my kids to stay out. If they ask why, I tell them. They have never walked in on us but I suspect one time and they would be cured of ever doing it again.



I don't consider myself traumatized.



I run into an awful lot of adults who still cringe when they think of the idea of thier parents having any sexual contact. I think that is a bit wierd, but easy to understand in this puritanical society, I guess.

As a kid I once was playing on my parents bed. When I found a packet of "plasters". I asked my mum why why she had plasters under her pillow. She just said in case there was an emergency in the night. Never walked in on them or heard them, ew!

No, but we were walked in on the other day. We'd sneaked next door in a mad moment (which happens very rarely) and should have guessed trouble was on its way but we ignored the signs - first of all the play station was turned off, then the music went off, and the next thing, the bedroom door handle starts turning and a little 7-year old face peers round the door. It was very difficult trying to reprimand him for coming into the bedroom without knocking (a BIG no-no) without collapsing into fits of giggles!

I grew up in a "naked" house (was it Sex and the City where someone said "I did not grow up in a naked house!" Charlotte, maybe?) It was completely normal for my parents to be naked at any time of the day, anywhere (obviously not out on the street, but you get what I mean). No, I never caught them at anything, though I know they still do it (my mom still takes the pill). I dunno, I never suspected because I was never really bothered to think about it as a kid.

no. one time when i went into their room to get some toilet paper just a few minutes after they'd gone to bed and my dad was really angry, i had a weird feeling that he was naked. i don't know that he was; i ran out and didn't look at him. i didn't know why else he'd be so mad. that was scary enough.

I'm pretty sure plasters are band-aids.



I never walked in on my parents or really found anything incriminating...



except a letter from my dad when he was in Nepal... shortly after my younger sister was born, I think... I found it fairly recently while going through... something, I don't remember. but it was something that led me to believe it was okay to read.



I was reading it aloud to my sisters without knowing beforehand what it said... it was all very sweet, "I miss you I miss our babies etc" and then I got to the part where he was talking about walking through a temple with statues of couples in stange kama-sutra style positions and all about how he was looking forward to trying some of those positions when he got home the best part was that he was sitting nearby and when I got to that part, he said, "And that's how Hannah came to be..." (Hannah was the youngest sister at the time- she's the youngest besides Natalie)

No, and I will be eternally grateful for that fact.



I'm pretty sure my parents are like Ludwig's. They've slept with the bedroom door open for my entire lifetime, and my mom is way too prudish to be open about it, so that leads me to believe that it doesn't happen.



Which is fine with me. And now I want to stop thinking about this. *scrubs brain*

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

Er plasters. Little things that you stick on yourself when you get cut. Usually flesh colour. (basic things in first aid kit) So nothing to do with condoms. I must have been about 3 at the time. I have another friend who mistooks condoms for plasters, and she was much older than I was. She wondered why they were handing out plasters at this festival.

not when i was real young no but in jr. high and highschool my mom was engaged and her fiance lived with us, and well yeah i never saw anything but i heard it. luckily i had a radio beside the bed so i turned it on really loud and from then on developed a habit of sleeping with the radio on at all times until i moved out.

after they split up also, i was in the grocery store with my mom and she ran into a friend who asked about the breakup and somehow sex was indirectly mentioned and she said "it wasn't that good anyways" guh.. so.. didn't... need... to know... granted i was like 16 or so but i was still shocked she mentioned that in front of me.



err also once i heard my brother. *shudder* way more disturbing. my mom was away and his girlfriend was visiting from out of town, my mom convinced them to stay in her room while she was gone because his room was in the basement where the laundry etc was and my mom knew i'd have to go down there at some point, plus he had a single bed so they'd just be uncomfortable. well her first day there i had about 6 or 7 friends from school over, we were watching movies in the middle of the afternoon, my bro and his girlfriend snuck upstairs, and lucky me my mom's room is directly above the livingroom, within seconds i could hear the bed and floorboards creaking. oh god

only one of the other girls noticed, she looked at me kinda confused and then realized what it was and looked really grossed out. i just turned the movie up really loud and hoped nobody else would hear. eck.

also any time i went downstairs to do laundry there were always condom wrappers on his dresser in full view my mom saw them once and just said "well at least he's using them" bleh.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Sounds like some of you are not ready for this, but here goes...



I walked in on my grandmother and her boyfriend (she was divorced) in flagrante delicto. I found that innately more disturbing than my parents because she was such a prude. Fortunately it was pretty dark. And I got over it anyway.



This is the same grandma who gave my auntie a video tape to copy because she wanted to have multiple copies of the tape for homeowner's insurance reasons. She went from room to room, telling about each antique whatever and every valuable thingy they owned. At some point she panned across the mirror of the buffet to reveal...everything. She was nekked as a baby bird. She didn't even notice it until my aunt called to laugh at her.



Go granny go! I hope she's still gettin' it. That means there's hope for me when I get, ahem, more mature.

I came in my parents' bedroom one night after having a nightmare, and they were naked in bed. I was really little, and accepted Mom's explanation that it was too hot to wear PJs. Later I realized they must have been doin' it, either then or a while before I came in.

Thanks alot. Looks like having an erection again isn't going to happen much for me in the future.



I walked in on my parents once, pretty much deliberately. I didn't mean to walk in on them when they were having sex. I just didn't know why they had tied the door shut and I had a really important question about astronomy for my dad (I was like 6-7 at the time). There he was, lying on her. They looked like a naked medicine ball sandwich thanks to his 10 months pregnant belly.



I got some of my own back a few years later, tho. My girlfriend and I were messing around with some toys and she forgot to put one away (we were in the living room). Well, the kids had come home when she found it, so she ditched it under a decorative pillow that no one had touched in like 6 months. She meant to move it when they were gone, but forgot. Well, a few days later, when my step-daughter was at the house with some friends (and we were out) she found it.



It was very funny talking to her on the phone about it. She kept alternating between crying and laughing hysterically. I couldn't tell if she was amused, or traumatized. I think a bit of both. On the bright side, we're probably the "freaky parents" they talk about all over her High School (she was a Junior at the time, if I remember correctly).
