Mackenzie Phillips tells Joy Behar: Sex with dad was not 'consensual'


Mackenzie Phillips has changed her mind. That is to say, she's chosen new words to describe her decade-long sexual relationship with her father, Mamas and the Papas singer John Phillips.

She told Joy Behar on her nightly HLN talk show Tuesday (Feb. 2) that she's learned from other incest survivors that her use of the word "consensual" is incorrect. Due to inherent parental power, sex between a parent and a child is never "consensual" on the child's part.
