A daughter has spoken of her shock after her mother made a “disturbing” bedroom proposal involving her husband.
Sharing on Reddit, the woman said she recently discovered that her stepfather had become sexually attracted to her husband and had made several advances towards him.
She went on to say that her own mum knew about her husband’s urges towards her son-in-law, and was even encouraging them sleeping together.
While the woman said that she and her husband were bisexual and had a “loose” relationship, the thought of her spouse being intimate her with stepdad had left her feeling “disgusted” and “grossed out”.
In her post, the daughter said she was shocked when her husband told her that her stepfather had been pursuing him behind her back.
“My husband and I are both bisexual and have a very loose relationship,” she explained.
“We are what you would call polyamorous and do on occasion sleep with other people. Him usually men and me usually women … It’s never caused us issues as long as we communicate and stay honest with each other.
“So this past weekend on a really long car drive my husband (we’ll call him Ryan) dropped this bomb on me.
“He starts by saying he hasn’t been completely honest with me so I ask what he lied about and he said he hasn’t exactly lied about anything, he just never told me.
“But I guess about three weeks ago at my mum’s house, him and my stepdad (we’ll call him John) we’re alone in the pool and John kept talking about increasingly sexual topics.
“Eventually John got kind of grabby and began touching my husband and they had a weird moment but it was cut short and Ryan got out and went inside, leaving John alone in the pool.
“Well the few times we’ve gone over since that day I’ve noticed Ryan being kind of distant from John and he was unusually snappy towards things John said.
“I never thought this was the reason for it but I did notice the atmosphere was kind of tense.”
It was then that the woman’s husband dropped the bombshell about her own mother’s involvement.
“He also told me that my mum knows and John had told her the same day that it had happened and that she was cool with it,” she said.
“Something about ‘at least we know Ryan is clean and he’s a great guy for John to sleep with and stay safe.’
“In fact she’s been actively taking me to the store and leaving Ryan with John alone at the house for them to initiate things. I had no clue about any of this.”
The woman went on to say that she was shell shocked by the turn of events.
“Mostly I’m just super confused and disgusted at the thought of my stepdad doing those things to Ryan and thinking about my husband while (sleeping with) my mum,” she said.
“If I’m angry about anything it’s that they all kept it hidden from me.
“I haven’t talked to either my mum or my stepdad about any of this. My husband knows fully how grossed out I am … It’s all so messed up and I’m so confused and disgusted about all of it.”
She added: “I am in no way angry at Ryan and realise that he is the victim here. I have talked to him since and made it clear that my horror and disgust is purely at my stepdad/mum and the whole situation we’ve been thrown into.
“We are literally thinking about moving states. I cannot even fathom conversing with either of them right now.
“My first realisation after I was done grossing out was how my mum gives absolutely zero f**** about my relationship with my husband.”
Hundreds of Reddit users were disgusted by the woman’s story, encouraging her to end contact with her mother and stepfather.
“Your stepdad is a sexually abusive creep and your mother is enabling him,” one said.
“I don’t think you have to talk to them. Just get your husband out of there and hope they never come up again.”
Added another: “The polyamory does not excuse or explain the situation. The bottom line is that your mum was actively orchestrating opportunities for your stepdad to sexually assault your husband. That’s not just wrong, it’s a criminal act.”
