Vancouver author Natasha Rose Chenier detailed her sexual relationship with her father on Jezebel. The year-old explained that she experienced genetic sexual attraction and was a victim to her father's abuse.
Advertisement It's not clear how many people experience GSA since the topic is so taboo. Chenier met her biological father when she was 19 years old. He left Chenier's mother before she was born and Chenier looked him up after her mom endured a decade-long abusive relationship.
The irony of what happened does not escape me. They hit it off right away. All of a sudden I had company. It was that simple. I had a dream parent, and I was over the moon," she wrote. Chenier went back home ecstatic. The two talked on the phone frequently until her next visit. On that trip, they shared a bed, she said. In retrospect, it seemed inappropriate, but nothing seemed odd at the time, she explained.
That's when started feeling sexually attracted to him, she said. She was horrified and didn't tell anyone, hoping the urges would go away. They had oral sex several times and her father confessed that he wanted to sleep with her from the moment they first met. The visit ended, but her anxiety and dread only grew after she left the island. Chenier said she finally stopped blaming herself after her therapist explained her genetic sexual attraction was not her fault.
In a parent-child relationship, the parent must set the boundaries: By letting those limitations slip, her father was a sexual abuser, Chenier explained.
