Oh…Mommy and Daddy were just ‘play wrestling.’

    Still an acceptable thing to say if you child walks in on you making love?

      I assume your not deep in the throws of passion with that response?  If your child associates something we do with something that only the two of you do, well, there will be a problem.  If on the other hand you  are straight up with your child and say that Mommy and Daddy were loving like only “Mommy’s and Daddy’s do,” it may fit better in the long term.

        Our kids asked a time or two when they were young what was going on, my wife very politely told them we were loving each other in a special way that they would learn about later. They were ok with that.

          May depend on the age of the child and what that actually saw. We have always been open and honest with our kids. All grown now only one at home. We always made sure our door was locked. But if they heard something and asked which I think happened once with each of, depend on their age we explain private time etc.

          True what they saw or heard and how old makes a big difference. But the points several people made about honesty are a good point.

            Our son walked in on us when he was about 4 or 5, holding a toy flashlight and asking “what are you two up to..?” He must have heard some noises. Fortunately we had a blanket over us, so nothing much was visible. (It could have been a lot worse….) We managed to come up with a satisfactory explanation, like “we were having a really loving cuddle” and he went back to bed.  But I guess it depends on how old the child is and what he has seen.

            I’m sure he heard similar noises and figured out what was going on some years later when he was old enough but by then he would not disturb us. No such problems with our daughter, she always slept like a log.

            Look, it’s probably embarrassing but hey-ho, it’s part of life.

              Our kids heard us a few years back where there was some light BDSM going on which was very embarrassing!

                I suppose if they asked if they could wrestle too it would lead to a more difficult conversation.
