    If having sex in public places is acceptable, if having one night stands isn't frowned upon and if interracial relationships are acceptable these days then why hasn't society learnt to accept that incest does happen and will continue happening? Why is it such a taboo topic?

    OP, if you want to shag a sibling/parent/cousin/etc. then you go for it. But it will never not be taboo.

    "In the UK, there are laws against public sex but they mostly are concerned with protecting "unwilling witnesses" from seeing acts of lewdness. We're not sure how this would be applied to sex in front of willing witnesses."

    When I say public places, I mean places like toilets inside clubs, inside a car etc.

    So would I, but you can 'legally' marry your first cousins? So it's not 'incest'

    When organisms mate too closely within family lines, they tend to make it more likely that abnormal, recessive genes will be passed on to their offspring. This means that their children are more likely to be born deformed or with other genetic related problems. The longer the inbreeding goes, the more generations that are invovled, the worse the problem will get.

    Common knowledge, if only you had bothered to pay attention in your science lesson instead of thinking about making love to your sister/mother.

    Because it's disgusting, immoral, desparate and biologically wrong. Out of all the people in this world how desperate must you be to go for your own family? Knowing it can result in deformed children why would you want to risk it? Knowing you will be outcasted by society for it why would you want to?

    You think the next logical step after normalizing interracial relationships is normalizing incest? Oh dear.

    Homosexuality is accepted in society, the couple cannot mate. Can't incessant couples do the same as homosexual couples and adopt a baby in the future if the desire of having a baby arises? I'm not talking about that kind of incest either. First cousin incest.

    Let me make something clear. There exists cultures in which two first cousins are married together and it's seen as perfectly normal. It doesn't happen alot in western society but it does happen especially in asian cultures. The biological arguments can be overlooked the same way it's overlooked for homosexual couples.
