As a registered physiologist, I have often been asked, is it possible to picture a family member, especially your mother when having sex? It sounds weird, but the most straightforward answer is yes, it happens, especially when you want to marry the person you are having sex with. When you get into it with your wife-to-be, you imagine having children with them. Your parents’ picture also sets in because you think they will make a one-in-a-million mother or turn toxic. Simply put, it depends on the mother figure you had.
Is It an Anxiety Thing?
From the explanation above, it is safe to say seeing a picture of a family member, especially your mother is not an anxiety thing. For this reason, don’t question your psychological well-being if it happens.
