This was a question I heard asked on the radio, I was pretty shocked to hear ppl calling in and giving ages! Is it ever ok to have sex in front of your child, sleeping or not?

I would say not. DH & I have never had sex in front of Ds. If he's in our bed sleeping, we take it out to the living room. I personally think its wrong on so many levels. Some of my friends have stated they have sex in front of their kids as long as they are "sleeping". How can you be certain that they are really sleeping or will stay asleep?

My parents used to do it when they thought I was sleeping. Well, I wasn't, I was *trying* to sleep and there is nothing more awkward than hearing your parents go at it! <gag>

What do you guys think?

We have had sex when our baby was asleep in the bassinet at the end of our bed.  None of them are in our room anymore.  We have been caught by the kids so now if we are sneaking one in during the day we lock our door.  We have a spontaneous active sex life and I don't care if it grosses our kids out.  We aren't going to stop having great sex because they might hear us.

I would if he was a baby. Babies don't pretend to sleep. I don't know that I would do it now, my son is 2 1/2... maybe I would I don't know. I have been a single mom so I've never had an opportunity to do that anyway.

When dd was an infant; we had sex in the same room as her. She was asleep in her bassinet or swing. That only happened a few times, and stopped before she was even 3 months.

When she was an infant and still in our room we still didn't do it there! We would go to the guest room!
It's weird to me, never.

I am not Palestinian (although I married into the culture). I am human. I
believe in human rights for everyone. Some people may think that this
is not "our" fight, but it is to me, because no matter their religion or cultural background, they are our brothers and sisters in humanity.  I will protest right along side everyone in Palestine. I may not be able to change the world, but I can
die trying.
