Mackenzie Phillips, who released a memoir detailing her long-term sexual relationship with her father, Mamas and the Papas' frontman John Phillips, now wants to redefine what she called a "consensual relationship" in her book.

"I'd like to reframe my word, 'consensual,'" Phillips told Joy Behar on Behar's HLN show.
"As I was writing the book, I thought, this word, it kept sitting wrong with me, but I used it for lack of a better word, and 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," she said.
