Mother Who Sleeps Naked With Her 16 Year-Old Son Says It’s Innocent

It’s good for a mother to be close to her children. But one mom asked a question on the internet that has people saying she’s taking it way too far.


From the Daily Mail:

The anonymous poster opened the debate on the question and answer site Quora, saying: ‘Is it wrong for me (a mother) to sleep naked with my 16 year old son?’

Her query met with a resounding ‘yes’ from everyone who replied, with several warning that her actions could be interpreted as child abuse.


More than 500,000 people have viewed the question, the authenticity of which can’t be verified.

Gautham Pinnamareddy was one of those who stepped in to advise the woman, saying she was blurring the boundaries of the mother and son relationship.

‘This is a most awkward thing to do,’ he warned. ‘I don’t understand your intention behind sleeping with your son, naked.

But, once son reaches his teens, he gets strong feelings towards girls. Some times he may forget you as a mother.

‘This could leads to serious consequences which make you guilty later. Please avoid sleeping naked along with your son.’

Shannon Giles said that it may be viewed differently in other cultures, but in American society it’s ‘f***** up’.

‘If your son were to casually mention to someone (friend, teacher, relative) that you and he share a bed and that you also are naked this person could potentially cause a LOT of legal issues for you, at least here in the US.

‘The Child Protection Agency wouldn’t think it was harmless, nor would a judge, nor any psychiatrist.

‘You could possibly be arrested for child indecency and put into prison and be forced to register as a sex offender.

‘Even if it’s not a sexual act, optics in this case would matter. Is it really worth all that? Just put some damn jammies on or sleep in separate rooms.’

She added that the mother should take her son’s feelings into consideration.

Cautioning that she risks scarring him for life, she added that he could end up with issues surrounding boundaries, forming relationships and carry a lot of ‘shame, embarrassment, and guilt’.

Yeah, sleeping naked with your 16 year-old son is definitely all kinds of wrong. Let’s hope this is just some bored weirdo trolling people hard.
