    So basically, you are supportive of incest, is what you're saying?
    not really supportive..just don't see that it is any of our business if two adults who happen to be related want to bump uglies.

    Do People Have a Natural Attraction To Incest?

    Posted on January 30, 2012by Alethea


    Dr. Susan Forward is said to be a principle authority on sexual abuse and incest. She and Craig Buck propose in their book, Betrayal of Innocence, that the aversion to speaking about, or hearing of incest, comes from a natural attraction to it.

    In biological terms it would be a logical reaction for people who live in the same home, share in activities, and who are tied together by emotions… to also be sexually attracted to each other.

    This can be true in many cases.

    Forward and Buck write, “Incestuous desires are in us all, though we engage a variety of unconscious mechanisms to deny them.” 1

    I am not certain if I agree with the authors here, but it is possible.

    In many cultures, and in third world countries, incest is openly practiced. 2 In early historical times and in pre-literate groups, maternal incest and pederasty were common. Have humans really changed that much? We have amended and created laws in order to protect children, but this has not stopped people from committing the acts. In America, incest is almost always hidden behind the facade of a “good” family and most likely happening just as much as it is in other cultures. The only difference in America, is that it is a well kept secret within the family.

    This states NOTHING about it being acceptable at ANY time in history. And did YOU read this link? Good Lord, it explains how closely incest and child sexual abuse are linked.

    Also, the author is full of nonsense psychobabble, saying that incest is something that we all want? You CAN'T be serious, can you?

    apparently you've never heard of the Westermarck effect. and history is full of examples of cultures where incest was practiced to keep bloodlines "pure".

    No I haven't, so post a link please.

    Yes, only royal families did this, and this was usually between cousins only, and it led to birth defects and other such issues after generations of these practices, and that's just one reason why it's not done anymore. The people involved in such marriages normally didn't have a choice in the matter either. It's not like they were sexually attracted to one another; that was just what was expected of them. BIG difference there.

    It is an unhealthy practice. THAT is the reason why it's disgusting to people. People are disgusted by things for a reason. There was also a recent study done where there were findings that the "smell" of relatives seems to be a turn off to "normal" people. Because incest is NOT natural. It's not natural to be attracted to your son, daughter, mother, father, etc.

    the same thing can be said about anal sex.

    No it cannot. That is completely different than having sex with your sister or your father. Plenty of people are turned on by anal sex and anuses.

    We have decided to include gays in our standards for marriage because it is the right thing to do. It does not mean we have abandoned all standards.

    wrong again.

    Unprotected anal sex poses well known health hazards for men, but new research suggests that the practice is a significant health issue for women as well. More than 100,000 New York City women engage in anal intercourse each year, according to a new report from the Health Department, and many are not taking the steps needed to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

    Anal membranes are easily damaged during sex, facilitating the spread of infection. Past studies suggest that anal exposure to HIV poses 30 times more risk than vaginal exposure

    anal sex is just as "unhealthy" as incest.
