Date November 20, 2018

The famous American actress Shirley MacLaine is quite a controversial figure. She has always been open about her tumultuous love life, which was filled with quite a few affairs. While many would look at it with the raised eyebrows, MacLaine believes that open marriage is a way to go.

Her former husband at that time lived in Japan while she was working in America so they made their 23-year relationship work in the way they thought was best before divorcing each other. The couple had a daughter together, Sachi Parker, who also became an actress.

In 2013, Sachi revealed a shocking truth about her childhood, letting the world know what kind of mother Shirley was.

A questionable encouragement

When her dad, businessman Steve Parker, moved to Tokyo, Sachi was sent along with him to live there with Steve’s mistress.

One day, when Sachi’s boyfriend, Brad, came to visit, Eberhard asked Parker, who was 17 years old at that time, whether the two had been intimate together, to which she replied that they weren’t. Kronhausen was quick to suggest that they should have sex right away and then discuss everything with him and his wife.

To Sachi’s shock, her mother encouraged her to listen to the sex therapists and do as they say. Sashi recalled her saying:

We’re all here to help you, sweetheart.

And so she did it. Despite the awkward, to say the least, situation, Sachi says she should have been grateful because it was one of those rare times her mother showed an interest in her life at all.

McLaine later released a statement, calling her daughter’s words ‘fiction’ and saying she was shocked and heartbroken over Sachi’s accusations. Whether it’s the truth or not, there are better ways to approach the subject of losing virginity.

How to talk to your daughter about losing virginity?

The most important thing about having such a conversation is to never be judgmental. Let your daughter feel like she can be open with you and trust you with what is going on in her young mind. Let her know the reason why having sex at a very young age is not the best idea and what consequences can come after that.

But also make sure your daughter knows how to protect herself from any risk and dangers associated with having an intimate relationship. Remember, at the end of the day it’s her choice, but it’s your duty to provide her with the proper knowledge.
