Reddit Broken Arms Story refers to a post on the /r/IaMA by a man claiming to have had a "sexual relationship with his mother" that started when he was a teenager and "temporarily lost the use" of his arms. The post gained infamy in 2011 and is widely referenced on the site in comments about having "broken arms," though the OP claims it was not due to bone fractures.


On December 22nd, 2011, Redditor verifiedson submitted a post titled "IAMA Man who had a sexual relationship with his mother. (Probably NSFW)" to the /r/IAmA[1] subreddit. The post contained a link to a comment[3] by /r/IAmA admin puredemo verifying the authenticity of verifiedson's identity. In the comments section of the post, the OP details how his mother began masturbating him when he was 14-year-old after he was "injured in an accident and incapacitated."[2] In subsequent comments, he revealed that the sexual contact continued to the point of the two of them regularly having sexual intercourse.

Prior to being archived, the post gathered 1,423 points (74% upvoted) and 10,600 comments.
