I personally don't register a connection between the physical act of sex and the emotional connection of boyfriend/girlfriend, and as such, while I can live with the sexual act of incest I simply find the existence of the emotional experience between siblings utterly unsettling and dislike being confronted with it
But maybe I'm just the odd one out here
So it's not the sex that is distasteful, it's the emotional bond...?
How odd indeed.
Everyone has their own different view on incest I suppose. I personally am not bothered by it, in fiction or reality, as it makes for a good plot device and I haven't saw it in reality so it slightly intrigues me. But even in reality, while I feel disturbed by doing the act, I would not be overly disgusted by someone else doing. I mean, if you're best friend had a relationship (sexual or not) with his or her sister, would you hate them for it ? I mean, sure you would be shocked and maybe slightly squicked out by it but would you lose a friend over something that doesn't affect you or anyone else in a negative way. Saying that I suppose if it's legal or not also plays a part, but I can't arsed researching it right now.
Now, I'm not arguing that incest is completely moral, or that you should like it, or that they shouldn't have kids, or that god should or should not smite them or even that stories involving it should or should not exist. I'm just saying it doesn't bother me personally and what i think. Hate it all you want, I'm just saying that if it doesn't involve me personally then it doesn't involve me at all.
Was that rant, I've never ranted before, was that really...yes...no?...maybe...either way if it was I'm sorry if it offended anyone
