Legalization of adult incest: Does incest fit with the proper purpose of sex?

  • A great way to learn sex in a safe enviroment

    Incest between consenting family should be permitted and excellent expression of love! I don't think the genetic problems are really significant. Freedom of expression of love and sex should be free. Sons in love with Moms, Daughters in love with Dads should have sex if consensual and of age.. Brother and sister connections are wonderfully satisfying.

    Try it sometime!

  • It is Up to Individual Adults to Decide Why to Have Sex

    CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

    There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we?

    Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

    Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

    Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

    Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!

  • Eeewwwww......What's next "consensual" beastiality?

    Few subjects in psychiatry elicit more profound, visceral, and polarized reactions than incest—the occurrence of sexual behaviors between closely related individuals—behaviors that violate society’s most sacred and guarded taboos. Furthermore, few circumstances confront the psychiatrist with more complex, painful, and potentially problematic clinical dilemmas and challenges than the treatment of the incest victim and/or the management of situations in which incest has been suspected or alleged by one member of a family, and denied, often with both pain and outrage, by the accused and/or other members of that family.

  • Incest does not fit the proper purpose of sex.

    While sex itself can be deemed a volatile issue, it is within my personal opinion that incest does not fit the proper purpose of sex. Fundamentally sex is used for procreation and reproduction, but morally sex is held as an act that should be observed for love. Sexual addiction that results in incest is more accurately described as illegal, and rape.

  • Goes Against Everything

    Why would this ever be legal? It's wrong on so many levels, in so many different ways. If gay marriage can't even be legal yet, why on earth would this be. It's purely disgusting, and I have no idea why anyone would be for this. This may have happened in the past, centuries ago, but there is a reason times have changed.
