Strange noises. Moans. Sighs.
When a man in Tasmania, Australia, heard these noises echoing through his house, he was pretty sure he knew what was wrong: He was being haunted. He therefore set up a video camera in his kitchen to catch the ghosts in action — only to discover that the ghosts were his 28-year-old girlfriend and his 16-year-old son having sex.
Although all the participants to this affair are anonymous because it involved illegal sex with a minor, the facts are known: The woman had been involved with the videoing daddy for 11 years, making her 16 or 17 herself when her relationship with the father began. She would also have known the man’s son since he was 5 years old.
It was only when the girlfriend was 27 or 28, and the teenager was 15 or 16, that the affair began. The boy asked her about driving lessons and, somehow or other, they ended up tickling, kissing, cuddling, and finally having sex.
With all that activity going on, no wonder the unsuspecting daddy thought his house was haunted. The affair got so passionate that the girlfriend eventually took the boy far from home to have sex with him in a hotel room.
Because the incriminating video only showed kissing and cuddling, the girlfriend was initially able to pretend that her relationship with the teenager was nothing more than some almost-innocent groping. When questioned, however, the teenage boy admitted to frequent sexual relations with his dad’s girlfriend. The moral dimensions of cheating aside, the girlfriend claimed that she had no idea that sex with a 16-year-old constituted statutory rape.
The woman faces sentencing this coming week. There is no word yet on the state of the relationship between the father and his son.
