St. Louis case narrative: Father-daughter incest initiated by adolescent daughter, continues as she becomes young adult

[This entry was initially posted to the original Red Keyhole blog on 3 May 2011.]

As this blog has noted repeatedly, consensual incest among close family members is apparently much more widespread than is commonly assumed, and such relationships can begin in a variety of ways. As illustrated by this case, drawn from a 2009 posting in response to a survey on an online incest discussion forum, in the case of father-daughter incest, it’s often the daughter whose curiosity and sexual energy initiate the incestuous activity.

Excerpted below for its research interest and educational value, this case narrative is based on the account of the father, identifying himself as Mark and located in St. Louis. Basically, he describes increasingly provocative behavior by his 16-year-old daughter that eventually results in incestuous intercourse. Subsequently, their relationship seems to have features of a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship lasting several years, with the daughter now a young adult at the time of the posting.

As with so many such cases, there are legal implications … besides the obvious violation of existing capitalist legal statutes against incest per se, the couple’s sexual activity when the daughter was only 16 could have subjected her father to a charge of “statutory rape” – and possibly a capital offense in connection with the incest. Revolutionary Marxists oppose both laws criminalizing incest and reactionary “age of consent” laws criminalizing sexual activity by youth, including consensual activity with older adult partners.


Some cases of consensual father-daughter incest may be initiated by the daughter, even during adolescence, resulting in a relationship that may endure as the daughter matures.

The original narrative has been slightly edited for orthographical correction and to improve readability. It should be noted that, in recounting their experiences, narrators in such sexual forums often relish reliving many of the erotic details of their activities. Thus, original language and some dialect mannerisms have been retained as much as possible – including very mature and sexually explicit language – in part to indicate such aspects as physical details, psychological dynamics, and emotional and moral attitudes.

I started to have sex with my daughter when she was 16. My wife [had] left us when she was 12.

I was taking a shower, and she came in to get something. She seen me, and just stood there. I started to get out, and seen her.

Later that week, she was home, and she went in to change her clothes … and left the door open. I was in the office that was across the hall, from her room. I could see into her room as she changed. I knew she was doing that so I could see her. Later that night, she was getting ready for bed, and she came out of her room with only panties on.

She was running around the house for a week like that, and she knew that made me horny. One night she was sitting on the couch, playing with her panties, and she stood up and removed them. I asked her what she was doing, and she said that they made her itch down there. From that night on, she was not wearing any clothes around the house.

A couple of weeks later, I was in bed, and she came in and asked me if she could get in bed with me. I sleep in the nude, and she knew that. I told her Yes, and she got in. I started to feel a hand on my side … it slowly moved to my cock.

I turned over to her and asked her what she was doing, and she said that she wanted to have sex with me. Then she jumps on top of me and slips it in her, and goes for it. I wanted it so bad that I did not stop her.

We have shared the same bed for 3 years and enjoy having sex every day.
