Vancouver native Natasha Rose Chenier, 24, says she had sex with her father when she traveled to get to know him when she was 19. Chenier traveled to her dad’s home in Jamaica to meet the parent she had never known and found herself engaged in incest.

Natasha Chenier said that after getting to know her dad she felt sexually attracted to him, and her feelings were reciprocated, according to the Canadian’s comments during an interview with Jezebel. Chenier claims that she later felt disgusted with herself and broke off the relationship and all contact with her father.

During the years since she said she had sex with her dad, Chenier has engaged in therapy and learned her reaction was not unusual. Incest can reportedly occur 50 percent of the time when relatives meet as adults.

Natasha Rose Chenier said her biological father “‘wanted to have sex with me from the first moment he laid eyes on me.” The Vancouver native continued, “We had oral sex a few times, almost always preceded by my descending into a whirlwind of self-hate and disgust and dry heaving over the toilet in the bathroom attached to his room.”

The incestuous sexual encounters came between Natasha and her dad allegedly started two years after she had established initial contact with him by phone when she was 17.

“There were a lot of red flags over the course of those two years, moments I’m only now able to recognize as such. But being the daughter of a let’s-look-at-our-vaginas-together feminist who is also a sex historian with a specialization in pedophilia and sex offenders—topics that were often openly discussed around me as a kid—I found that the boundaries that existed in other families simply did not exist in mine. So when my dad started talking to me openly about his past sexual encounters, it felt fairly normal. When he told me he was cheating on his current girlfriend, I was not bothered by it. I was 19, and my mother had always spoken to me like an adult. I felt he was speaking to me the same way. I felt included in his club, and I was flattered,” Chenier said.

Natasha Chenier maintains that her mother had a “casual relationship” with her dad when she was also 19. Her mother reportedly told her that her father made a “quick exit” after finding out about the pregnancy.

“I had no idea what was normal in a father-daughter relationship. We held each other and I felt safe,” Chenier said. The young woman also stated that when she first tracked down her dad as a teenager their contact came at a time when she was “lonely” and “angry” at her mother. Natasha also noted that her father “dazzled her” when she went to visit him in Jamaica and recalled that he treated her to “expensive” meals.

The father and daughter had a lot in common, Chenier added. “When I first met him in person I noticed that we even had the same posture, the same way of carrying ourselves in the world. I was intoxicated by our likeness, which I never shared with my mother, or with any siblings – I am an only child,” Natasha Chenier said. “As well as shocked and horrified to realize it. I spoke of it to no one, least of all him. I hoped I would go home and the feeling would go away. But it didn’t. Instead, it grew.”

Natasha Chenier also had other things to say about the incestuous relationship.

“I imagine that, unless you have experienced genetic sexual attraction yourself, this is going to sound entirely unbelievable. But trust me: it is as real and intense as anything. The sexual feelings I had for my father felt like a dark spell that had been cast over me. I was not only a victim of my father’s two-year seduction; I also felt a victim of my own sexual feelings. I felt ashamed of myself, and I had no one to talk to about it. I wasn’t equipped to understand or handle my feelings.”

Chenier now feels, after therapy, that genetic sexual attraction is “normal, and very real.” She is writing an auto-fictional novel about the experience and will share memories about the father and daughter sex experience.
