It is selfish to believe that because two people love each other the taboos of society should not stop them expressing that love physically. It is selfish simply because any child that may result from an incestuous relationship will suffer as a result.
Fertilisation of gametes from two closely related people ensures that many recessive alleles will be homozygous, and will thus be expressed in the phenotype where they would not normally have been where the sexual partners were not related. In simple the result of this is a child more likely to develop severe genetic disabilities such as haemophilia (as seen historically in European royal families).
Is this a price to pay to satisfy a sexual whim?
Incest is certainly not legal in Germany, and i dont know of any country of which it is, quite rightly so. It remains a taboo all over the world, and there are good reasons for that.
If you are aware that the person you are shagging is your sister, or a relation... you are fuked up... there is no defence and there is no excuse!!!
lol... we are no-one to stop them... why would they want to do it on the first place? Its a basic human reaction, we could narrow and condese it down to the fact that it is bad for society through genetics etc, but its just intrinsically wrong.
- if they want to shag their relatives, fine, aslong as they don't mind goin on Jerry Springer and being laughed at and verbally abused... there are plenty of other people on the planet to do that with!
So are you shagging your relatives???
im not... but i bet the idea disgusts you... i bet for a split second you were angry i asked... because the idea is intrinsically wrong.
yes it is a good idea to question why we feel a certain way, but sometimes we should just accept things the way they are.
my feelings exactly spectre... does that mean that 25 percent of people on these boards are shagging there relatives?
what is it with you and establishing fact... look at the poll, 75% of people find it wrong... and thats just in this poll... go ask someone on the street, it doesn't need to be researched its commen sense.
