What's sicker than showing a 12-year-old girl a porn movie? Showing her a porn movie titled "Like Cousins" while feelin' her up, which is what a Tempe man allegedly did last week.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, the victim went to school yesterday and told a counselor that her mother's 36-year-old boyfriend, with whom she lived, forced her to watch porn with him on several occasions last week.

The girl says between November 8, and November 10, Nathaniel Whitaker forced her to watch "Like Cousins" at the apartment the two shared with the girl's mother.

As the two watched the movie, the girl told police, Whitaker touched her breasts and vagina -- under the clothing.

Yesterday, the girl's mother participated in a confrontation call, in which she asked Whitaker about the incident.

Whitaker admitted to the mother that he had watched "Like Cousins" with her daughter but says he never touched her inappropriately.

He says he only showed the girl the movie in order to "teach her about adult sex."

You might think learning that your boyfriend was showing your 12-year-old daughter porn movies would be a bit of a turn off. Apparently not for the mother of the victim.

After the confrontation call with Whitaker -- where he admitted to watching a porn movie with the same name as the one given by the victim -- the unidentified mother told police she didn't believe the girl's story.

She angrily left the police station and told the cops to turn her daughter over to Child Protective Services.

The mother has not been charged with a crime, but Whitaker faces one ount of furnishing obscene materials to a minor.
