    Father 'forced son into sex with hooker'
    Kieran Campbell | 23rd December 2009

    A ROCKHAMPTON dad is accused of forcing his son to have sex with a prostitute because he feared the 14-year-old was gay.

    During a family barbecue around Christmas time in 2007, the dad allegedly phoned a prostitute and arranged to meet her at a motel on Yaamba Road, North Rockhampton.

    The father drove his son to the motel and paid the prostitute in $50 notes.

    The prostitute took the boy into a motel room while the father waited on a balcony.

    The dad walked in and out of the room to check on his son and told him he wanted to see a used condom as proof that they’d had sex. After the boy and the prostitute had finished the dad took his son home.

    A magistrate yesterday found there was enough evidence against the father for him to stand trial for the rape of his son.

    Giving evidence during the committal hearing in Rockhampton Magistrates Court, the boy’s mother testified she questioned the youngster about where his father had taken him.

    “First (he) didn’t want to say anything to me. Then he told me his father took him to a motel room and there was a prostitute there,” the mother said.

    “He wouldn’t talk, he just started crying.”

    Police first became aware of the alleged rape when the father phoned the Child Protection Investigation Unit on May 5, 2008.

    Detective Sergeant Christine Knapp answered the phone call, during which the father allegedly accused police of not acting on suspicions that his 14-year-old son was “abusing” his younger brother.

    The dad allegedly told police he had “tried to sort it out himself by taking (his son) to a prostitute”.

    Sergeant Knapp said she warned the father over the phone before driving to the family’s home and speaking with the mother and child.

    The prostitute alleged to have had sex with the teenager has never been located.

    Sergeant Knapp said she tracked the father’s mobile phone calls to trace the prostitute’s number, but without knowing a date of the alleged offence she could not track the woman down.

    The prostitute was described to police as being about 28-years-old, tall and skinny with tanned skin and dark, long hair.

    Sergeant Knapp said the teenage boy appeared to be quite embarrassed when he was asked by police about the rape.

    A date will be set in the new year for the matters to be heard in a higher court.

    lol, didn't it occur to dear ol' Dad that making his son's first sexual experience with a woman completely traumatizing might have achieved the opposite effect?icon_rolleyes.gif

    Naturally this is terrible. But it also was once not that uncommon in some parts of the US.

    A father would take his son to a brothel for a "cherry busting" that would officially make a man of him, eliminating any tendencies for him to turn gay, and making him better prepared for his eventual wedding night.

    There was also the fear that the young man might get a good girl into "trouble" by acting on his own before he was properly married, so having a professional take care of him made better sense. Plus he might learn a useful trick or two from her, so to speak.

    Whorehouse madams right up until World War II report doing a regular business in this way, after which the practice declined. The typical age was from 14 to 18, so this boy is within the range, at least for that different time & place.

    But in today's US, young teen boys should still be playing with video games and skateboards, and riding bicycles, not bimbos. I won't prejudge, but I'd love to learn if the father is some fundamentalist crackpot, convinced that having a gay son is worse than having one who becomes morally and emotionally damaged by an incident like this.
