OK, so this story doesn’t say that it was the boy’s birthday, but trying to solicit the services of a prostitute for your 14 year old son surely has to count as one of the creepiest things a father could do.
If the son was 44 and needed to buy sex then his father helping him out might not have made my skin crawl so much. But 14? If the son was having trouble getting a steady girl friend that is one thing, but if either of them were concerned that the son wasn’t getting laid then perhaps they needed reminding that the legal age of consent in the UK is 16.
It’s a sad day when relationship advice, father to son, is replaced by “don’t worry son, if your mum won’t give me so much as a hand job I come down the back of the buss station and have a complete stranger suck me off for a tenner”.
If my father had decided to pull this stunt I would have reported him to the police myself or had him sectioned.
