AUDIO: Dr. Klein - My Niece Is Sexually Active With Her Boyfriend & I'm Uncomfortable When They Stay In Our Home

By Dr. Marty Klein Expert

No sex or relationship question is too embarrassing because it's time to ask EmpowHer's sexuality expert, Dr. Marty Klein, anything.

Dr. Marty Klein:
Here’s a woman who asks, “My niece who is in college is almost 21. She has a long time boyfriend and they are sexually active. My question is why am I uncomfortable when they stay together in our home?”

Dr. Marty Klein:
Boy, that’s not the direction I thought that question was going to go. Why are you uncomfortable, well it could be a number of things - if you have known this girl since she is 3-years-old the idea that she is a grown up maybe kind of just concerning and if the two of them are walking around half undressed, if they have that sort of goony look that people have when they just had sex five minutes ago, well that would make almost anybody feel left out, may be even a little envious.

And of course where they are in their bedroom in your home and having sex the question is are they making a lot of noise, do you feel like you are the one who has to tip toe around them?
