The Oedipus complex: The Oedipus complex is actually based on Greek mythology and a tragic play by Socrates. The briefest explanation – when a young seeks the love of his mother – but from another woman. Maybe he looks up to you. Maybe he appreciates your ability to nurture and the wisdom that only time can bring. Not so terrible really. It’s actually flattering to have someone look up to you. One of the best ways to learn life’s lessons is through a mentor and as you play the expert, you can enjoy the companionship of a younger man.
Or maybe we just like playing with fire. Carrie and Brian’s Oedipus Complex Story.
