Generational Rift (#communication #morals #flashfiction)

By Lisabet Sarai 

(In homage to Daddy X - exactly 200 words)

Oh God, Mom. Is that really you in that corset? In public?”

What? I think I made a rather fetching Magenta. Those midnight shows—well, they were wild.”

But everyone can see your boobs! It’s so embarrassing.”

Come on, I was only a few years older than you are now, Jen.”

Still... Will you close the album, please?”

Rocky Horror was a major influence on me. ‘Don’t dream it, be it’. That was my anthem. Back then, I was ready for any erotic adventure.”

TMI, Mom!”

You don’t want to hear about how I seduced my best friend Lisa?”

God, no!”

Or the blowjob I gave my grad school boyfriend on the Greyhound bus?”

Enough, Mom!”

Or the threesome your dad and I had at the swingers club, before we were married? The orgies, later?”

Please! Stop before I throw up!”

I don’t know why you’re so upset. You know I wasn’t a virgin when I met your father, that I’ve always been a very sexual person.”

Yeah, I know. But the thought of all those other people around...”

Ding! “’Scuse me, Mom. Text from Jerry. Oh, my...!”

What? What is it, hon?”

No, don’t...”

My God, Jen! Is that you?”


  1. Hah! Good one, Lisabet! And thanx for the mention. (blushing)

    1. I've learned a lot about writing flashers from editing yours!

  2. The parent-child relationship is vastly more complicated than other interactions between people of different generations. I can't say for sure, but I suspect that even people into the MILF sort of kink are squeaked out by the thought of their own parents having sex. I dunno--is there a FILF kink, or is the older man/ younger (trophy) girl thing so prevalent throughout history that it just seems natural?

    1. Definitely. And parents are freaked out by their kids' sex lives, no matter how liberated they might have been themselves.

      Maybe there's something genetic about this, a sort of hard-wired barrier to incest. Or perhaps it's the cultural prohibition of incest that makes thinking about children and sex (or parents and sex) uncomfortable.
