Dating your father
Do you think you have something special that other couples don’t?
You’ve got to feel like Mum was doing her best here…Just in case you were wondering: Incest is illegal in all Australian states and consent is not a defence.It’s a hackneyed therapy joke that all women end up with a version of their fathers.Carl Jung called it the Electra complex – a latent desire to kill our mothers and possess our fathers – declaring it a stage of development every girl goes through between three and six years old.She just said, “Oh, those are cute.” She plays dumb about it. We plan to move to New Jersey where we can be safe under the law, since adult incest isn’t illegal there, and once I’m there I’ll tell everyone.
I’ll call my mom and let her know that we are in love and we are having children.Z’s father was still living with his girlfriend at the time, but because Z was feeling anxious, Z’s father slept on the couch and Z slept on the floor. The second night I had him sleep on the couch again and then the third night I fell asleep with him on the floor lying on his chest, in his arms. I didn’t know this at the time but later, after we admitted our feelings, he told me he had had “morning wood” and had gone to fix it.
