    Myron's 'Mom'.
    But thats a different (wildly popular) section of the adult DVD aisles.
    Funny how every teen male who ever lived seems to have had 1 or 2 of the same small collection of fantasies. Which never actually seem to ever happen to anyone they know outside of the old PENTHOUSE LETTERS section.

      I assume this is the start of a series, otherwise I'm lost.

      Knew a guy that dropped out of high school and joined the Navy.
      Served a few years and came home.
      Started dating a 14/15 year old girl.
      Parents who were divorced didn't like the idea because of age difference.
      Stopped dating girl, started dating her mother.
      Married mother.

      Just a piece of true Americana (and this wasn't in the South.)

          A little less convoluted than the Bill Wyman/Mandy Smith and Stephen Wyman/Mandy Smith's mother relationships, but similar, I guess.

    •  It's the same old Oedipal thing. (3+ / 0-)

      When you're young, parental figures are 'authority' who control almost every aspect of your life.  Pulling a parent, even somebody else's, into such a fantasy is a way to alter the power balance between the old and the young, at a time in which the adolescent is seeking to alter their status in the world from child to adult.  To bring the adolescent more from a subservient position into an equal status.

      Plus, of course, it's easier to imagine that you might be able to enter into some sort of intimate encounter with someone you know well, simply because you do know them.  You can fantasize about some celebrity or porn star or whatever, but there's no real depth to such fantasies, it's just one dimensional, because you have no real idea how they might actually react to various non-sexual parts of that daydream.
