(Newser) – Mackenzie Phillips changed her tune today on her sexual encounter with her father at age 19, saying after talking to incest survivors, she’d “like to reframe my word, ‘consensual.’” She wrote in her book that her relationship with musician John Phillips was indeed consensual; Mackenzie, now 49, told Joy Behar that “since then I’ve been schooled by thousands of incest survivors all across the world that there really is no such thing as consensual incest due to the inherent power a parent has over a child,” reports CNN.
