The Friday thread

Should drunken care ladies be fired after showing their breasts to deaf children at a party?

Re: The Friday thread

opening a Friday thread in an area where you can't thank or groan is really not done.

The guy is severly disabled and we don't know the real story. I'm more disgusted that this was released to the media.

For a Friday thread, this one is growing quite slowly...

Re: The Friday thread

Now this is a Friday story

Incestuous mum and son say they are 'trying for a baby' after 'mind-blowing sex'
But the pair, who were estranged for 30 years, insist their relationship isn't incest

The Sun
Friday, 8 Apr 2016


A mum and son have shockingly revealed they are in love and planning to have a baby

A MUM and her son say they are trying for a baby after falling in love, 30 years since she put him up for adoption.

Kim West, 51, and her son Ben Ford, 32, claim to have been in a relationship for two years and describe their sex life as "incredible and mind-blowing".

According to the New Day Ben split with his wife Victoria, who he married in 2011, in order to be with his mum in a relationship they describe as 'Genetic Sexual Attraction'.

English-born Kim told paper: "This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod and meant to be together.

"I know people will say we're disgusting, that we should be able to control our feelings, but when you're hit by a love so consuming you are willing to give up everything for it, you have to fight for it.

"It's a once in a lifetime chance and something Ben and I are not willing to walk away from."

She described how she realised she fancied her own son when she started having "sexy dreams about him".

The unorthodox pair shared their first kiss over a bottle of champagne in a hotel.

And soon after, Ben, realising he had fallen for his own mother, left his devastated wife Victoria to move to Michigan with his new love.

There, the couple spent time with other mother-and-son pairings, who helped them to understand their newly-found feelings.

Shockingly, up to 50 per cent of long-lost family members experience GSA when they finally meet their relation.

After reading stories about GSA couples online, Kim said she allowed herself to "fall in love" with the son she gave up when she was 19.

Incest is illegal in the couple's new home Michigan, as it is in the UK, but the pair are willing to move state to tie the knot.

A Michigan mum was jailed for nine years in 2010 for having sex with the 14-year-old biological son she gave up for adoption when he was a baby.

Re: The Friday thread

What you need to do is file for disavow of adoption and then file for marriage.

Genetic screening to avoid autosomal recessive disorders would also be recommend.

True, I thought that we had that already covered by the latest technology.

Never let bio-engineering get in the way of a true relationship.

Re: The Friday thread

Thanks Castro, this is a much more lively thread now.

I hope for the unborn child's sake, that at 51 years old Kim is too old to conceive.

I'm not cell scientist, but is there a slight possibility that the genes will dictate desire for another adoption instead.

I won, I won ...

P.S. Remember not to overreact ... It's a Friday's thread afterall and a key to controversy is that one must stay as cool as possible ... It's also in America, don't forget.
