William H. Macy Wants His Daughters to 'Have a Lot of Sex' with No Guilt

William H. Macy Wants His Daughters to 'Have a Lot of Sex' with No Guilt

William H. Macy is opening up about his hopes for his daughters’ love lives.

The 68-year-old Shameless actor, who is married to Felicity Huffman, wants their daughters Sofia, 17, and Georgia, 16, to be able to have a lot of sex without feeling guilty about it.

William says that he’ll be welcoming to all of his daughters’ boyfriends and that his older daughter is already having boys sleep over.

“You know, I started doing all the cliches, ‘I’m gonna threaten the guys, I’m gonna dig a moat around our house,’” William told Us Weekly. “And then I thought, ‘OK, what do you really want for your daughters?’ And I realized: I want them to be happy and lusty and safe. I want them to have a lot of sex in their lifetime! Good, healthy wonderful sex with no guilt. That’s what I really want.”

“They’re different than when I was a kid. Georgia and Sofia have all their pals over. They will have six or eight of their friends over,” he added. “It’s pretty bizarre, especially with Sofia, to wake up in the morning and there’s some boy walking out of your daughter’s room! They all sleep together! I don’t think they have sex, well, I know they don’t.”

    God, this is terrifying. What a creep.

    Well…that’s not creepy. What is he, another Woody Allen?

  • cuzjcacjo

    that doesn’t really sound like good parenting. sounds like he wants them pregnant and/or diseased

    “Good, healthy wonderful sex with no guilt.”

  • mafragias

    It’s foolish of any parent to think that their kid will not have sex, so I believe it’s better to be open about it and know what happens to your child than for sex to be a taboo.

    he literally said “safe”

    yeah, i know several parents who shamed and guilted their kids and said if they ever had sex before marriage, they were going to Hell and they were “sluts”. They started them at a very, very young age.

  • MsCarol

    This is actually good parenting. My parents were pretty open with me about sex, answared questions when I asked and never forbade me from sleeping with with boyfriends. I neved had STIs or ever had to take plan B.

  • Émilie Marie Ch.

    So sad! Hopefully in the future more parents will be like William H. Macy and teach their kids that (safe) sex is fun and having sexual desire is not something to be ashamed of.

  • Leilane

    ok that’s a nice mindset however the way he talks about is kinda creepy

  • jrpieces

    SERIOUSLY ??? wow that asking for trouble

  • quartzoup

    He’s so naive. Just because they behave under his roof, doesn’t mean they are behaving under everyone’s roof. He also probably has no clue that his house is being used by kids with stricter parents, to do things they know they’re not allowed to do.

    That is so disgusting. What a horrible parent. And yes I know I am the only person that thinks that, but I am raising my kids to wait until marriage. And no, it is not unrealistic to think they will. It does not mean you shame them or tell them sex is evil or wrong. You tell them that sex is amazing and wonderful and a gift from God for them and their spouse. My husband and I didn’t have sex until we were married and my kids are all happily planning to do the same.

    Oh, and no, I am not a parent of little kids who thinks they will continue to make this choice when they get older. I have 3 teenagers.

    I don’t believe you have to make your children feel guilty about sex like he’s talking about. I have 3 girls and encouraged them to be mature (I hoped for 18or so) but mostly be in relationship for awhile (like 6 months) so you know you are both committed before you take that next step if you are ready. I don’t like encouraging them to have sex. It sounds like putting pressure on them to do something before they are sure they are ready.

    Sorry Woody is innocent. Bye.

    Um, this is creepy.

    But (safe) sex can be so amazing! Why do you want your kids to wait (if they are ready) when they could experience such a beautiful and amazing thing? Of course masturbation is great and could be enough for some, but having sex with a partner is also a great way to connect, and what if they marry someone who’s sexual tastes does not match their tastes? I think everybody should test the water before they commit.
