    is it wrong?

    We all know that incest is wrong because if they have kids, those kids could come out with problems.
    But what if the incestuous couple are gay or lesbian? Is that still wrong? there aren't going to be any children, so the whole 'deformed kids' argument will cease to be a problem. The only reason I'm asking is because a friend and I were having a disagreement and I wanted some other opinions because neither of our arguments were going anywhere, so I came to the only place I know where I was going to get a large range of answers.

    So, is gay / lesbian incest bad?
    personally, I think that if there aren't any victims, then people can do what they want, as long as they don't tell me about it. what do you think? try to put aside the "YUCK!" part of your brain.

    Haha! Yeah, I see how that looks now, lol.
    But seriously, we were listening to a podcast that brought up the question:
    "If you had a super hot stepsister, who was dropping hints all over the place, would it be wrong to 'tap dat'?". Everyone in the podcast answered:
    "hell yeah I'd tap dat!". From this, a new question was brought up, (the one about gay incest), my friend couldn't close off the "DUDE, GROSS!" part of his mind, so the argument stopped there.

    Well thats "step" sister. If its by marriage there's nothing really wrong with it besides the awkwardness of the arrangement since ya know.... parents married or something like that. If by blood then yeah thats wrong. Doesn't matter if gay or not I mean lord you share the same genetics thats just creepy.


    and curious how this topic may develop *looks back at the boobs thread*

    It's interesting that you went to gay/lesbian incest, rather than the advent of birth control or medical procedures (like a vasectomy) that would prevent pregnancy in hetero couples, too. We tore this issue apart in a couple of ethics classes. Ethically speaking, no harm, no foul.

    As to the 'yuck' part of your brain, there have been studies that show children raised together (who are unrelated), are unlikely to develop romantic relationships with each other. One study claimed that being raised together changes brain wiring (that's the technical term) to prevent incest-related birth defects and such and such. Of course, the study couldn't possibly account for societal pressure to not engage in such relationships, but whatev.

    I'll see if I can track down one of the studies, if anyone is interested.

    I can't find the study in question -- I no longer have student access to all those fancy academic search engines

    However, the theory they were studying was based on the Westermarck Effect, which basically says being raised together during formative years gives a natural disgust towards later sexual relationships.

    Or reading it!

    It is a fantastic series (TV and Books) though...

    I thought it would be harder to read and long winded, but this guy gets it right.

    I was gonna watch that, but the moment I pressed play on the first episode, my brother walks in, sees 'throne of tides' and says "Boromir dies"...
    I was rage.

    The only reason I said gay/lesbian is because they said gay/lesbian lol.
    Seriously though, hardly anyone has said 'yay' or 'nay'

    All right then, I say it's wrong. As erinc says, you'd be much, much less likely to have a strong, loving relationship with a brother or sister, whether you're having sex or not, it just wouldn't work. Different relations I'm not sure though. Step siblings you could probably get away with because you're not related by blood, and possibly cousins.

    You have a decent point there, but we can't say that it doesn't happen, because I seen, enjoyed and finished enjoying footage of the lesbian twin nature.
    Who says it has to be a loving, stong relationship?
    Why wouldn't it be a guy who goes round to his brother's house... gets busy, finishes getting busy...*fistbump*..."see you at cousin judy's wedding next week yeah?"?
    I'm not sure if that last bit was understandable, but you see what I'm getting at right? Have you never heard of the terms fuck buddy or booty call? What I'm saying is: That sort of thing wouldn't have negative concequences, so if both parties are down, they they should go ahead.
    Personally it isn't the kind of thing that I would be cool with, but what someone else does in their own home (or their brother/sister's) is up to them.
