A male friend of mine confided in me that he has sexual fantasies about is elderly mother (he is in his fifties). apparently these fantasies began in puberty, and although he hasn't mentioned any past sexual abuse, I wonder if he is surpressng memories. In addition he has been unable (and unwilling) to maintain any longterm romantic relationships with woman. He tends to jump from one woman to the next. I thought I'd heard it all but he has me concerned....
Is he abnormal?
I don't know why this is in THIS forum...but oh well.
It doesn't sound like he has ever acted on it. So that is a positive thing. People, don't really get to choose WHO turns them on, but they get to choose whether or not they act on it. I can't say if it is NORMAL to feel like that about ones own mother, but Freud did some work on the sexuality of children and parents.
I don't know about suppressed memories, he may just think she is sexy. Maybe he was hurt by other women so badly in high school other than his mom.
I wouldn't worry about him unless he is acting on his fantasies. Some people also just jump around in relationships, they are looking for something that they can't find. Nothing to weird there.
