Hmmm. So Mistie Atkinson of Napa, CA had been missing her son. I am not sure of the cause of separation between mother and child, but we do know that the child’s father had custody. Mistie is 32 years old and her son is 16. The articles below share that it had been fifteen years since mother and son had met. Inevitably something had transpired and the two were being separated for a reason that is not readily apparent.
But what happens next is really bizarre and twisted. Mistie sets out online and searches for her son on the popular social networking site, Facebook. She finds him. They meet, book a hotel room, and have sex. There’s also suggestive text messages and pictures sent back and forth between the teen and mother.
But how in the world does the bond between mother and son incorporate sex? How does the conversation transpire on Facebook to the point where she’s sending him suggestive photos? Is the dating pool so constrained in Napa, California that mothers are forced to solicit their estranged sons? I don’t care how big the libido, the mother should have adhered to the age old tradition of not copulating with your children no matter how far you feel you have grown apart. Distance and time don’t make this relationship any less incestuous.
In regards to the sixteen year old: I know hormonaly speaking, this is a challenging age, and perhaps the prospect of meeting your long lost mother is a powerful experience. But this isn’t the type of thing that you want to have hanging around your head through the rest of your life and surely is not going to provide good ‘locker room’ talk. In short, if it doesn’t feel right, don’t proceed. Surely a few warning signs must have crossed your mind while this was going on. But then again, he was video taping the sex act so…we might be dealing in the oblivious.
Atkinson is charged with four felonies including incest, oral copulation with a minor and contacting a minor for sex using electronic communication.
