    It is just because of social issues that it is not done or is it really a cause for genetic deformities?

      it is both,

      incest should never be practice,  for some societies they allow it because they think that their children etc are their properties...

      incest is sickening...it is mostly disallowed by most societies because of moral issues

      There are legitimate genetic issues that arise from inter-relatial sex. So, you may want to think a lil about it, before hopping in bed with your lil sis/bro. Or who-ever?

      why are you asking this question? are you in an incestuous relationship or pondering one?

      with all the millions of people to have relationships with, why would you choose a brother or sister or father or mother?

      that is perverted, sickening and disgusting. just because someone 'consents' doesn't mean diddly. they could be filled with shame and self-loathing later, and hate their lover and feel bad for destroying a decent familial relationship. some things are sacred, and this is one of them.
      GROSS!

      they both freely consented. anyone who thinks that is love is twisted!

      I wanted to avoid this question like the plague, but I decided to answer it from a purely scientific stance ...

      Genetic diversity keeps a species strong and viable. For a living thing to take on new traits it must mate beyond its own gene pool. This is why humans (as a rule) are disgusted by the premise of dating a close relative. It's instinctive for us to want to breed outside our own gene pool to introduce new genetic material into our family tree.

      I hope that answers your question, and I hope they don't get any tougher than this one to answer. smile

        Livestock breeders will often inbreed lines to concentrate specific superior traits. They will then cross them with other lines and end up with a sum greater than the parts.  In nature, animals do not discriminate as to regards to relatives, they just mate with any receptive to their advances and sometimes even if they are not.
        Not saying its a good idea, just that is a natural thing.  As a society of homo sapiens we have decided it is not a good idea. Whether any of us agree or disagree with it, what people do in their own homes is really no one else's business as long as all partys are consenting and of age.
        Anyway, I thought the question was about having sex, not reproducing.
        Just for the record, I don't think its a good idea, but if it is your thing, whatever, just don't involve anyone I know.

      If your question is about marriage in between cousins then I believe it is both social & for medical reasons.
      However, in some religious beliefs marriage in between other close relatives are practiced too. First cousin marriages are legal in several USA states & many countries around the world.
      In my personal opinion I don't believe in cousins marriages.

      26 states allow first cousin marriages.

                Fair enough.  If such was the case, fine.  However, in real terms, incest is not usually a consenting relationship.  That is my understanding.

                So far as genetics go, I don't really look at it from that angle.  My angle is that most incest is a case of abuse.    I notice this thread has been recategorised into culture clash from home&family. 

                I am only speaking from my understanding in my culture.

              Anyway, I would never judge love. So for me ,any relationship between 2 consenting adults is valid. Whether I like it or not.
              whether you like it or not.

                The original question was:

                "It is okay to have sexual relationship with close relatives?"

                As far as I see, this could mean anything. I though it was dangerous to encourage a person who was probably about to start sexually abusing a family member and was seeking validation. If it's about close cousins who fall in love, I wouldn't judge. But as long as the question is this ambiguous, I can only say no. But I see your point. Thanks. smile

          I'm just a little puzzled.  Didn't sound to me like  the thread was PROMOTING incest, just attempting to identify the source (or sources) of the original taboo.  Heck, I thought it was a simple, honest inquiry.

          On that note:  Social issues for sure, and inbreeding issues to some degree, depending on who is producing offspring (if any) by whom.  I was at one time (for several years) a live-in group home houseparent working with teenagers, also a Social Worker, and definitely got to see the "social issues" side of all that.

    The problem, regardless of law, social norms, etc., is that incest, and the offspring from such unions, has an inordinately high rate of birth defects, retardation, etc. Why do you think polygamy is such a problem? It's one thing for it to be okay among consenting adults, but the real problem is what it does to destroy lives by way of genetic disorders. These genetic disorders are well documented and filmed in news reports.

            There are situations like this Mitch, like it or not.  Some women choose to be involved in submissive roles where the line of consent is very thin.  However, what starts as consensual play can also turn into real rape.  This might clear things for you also Tantrum.

    I had an aunt who married her first cousin. It was the cause of some whispering amongst the family, but that's about it, in terms of the social impact. They had to travel to a different state to get married due to laws about marrying relatives (this was in the early 60's). I don't think there's any danger to offspring in that situation, or that's what geneticists say. My cousin (their only child) was a bit of as spoiled brat, but I'm not sure you can blame faulty genetics on that!

        Actually the deformity rate, etc. Is about 50% in the first instance for brother sister relations, and 25% to thier offspring. decreasing every step away in descendancy..

        The % rates drop from there the further the relation from one another the two are, the slimer it is.

        So?....

        Close relations is probrably more moral taboo, than actual genetic problems. That doesn't speak to reccessive trait genes that may appear spuratically along the family line.

        I am not saying one way or the other in regards to it. just answering the ?.

    I can't think of any situation where it doesn't harm the people involved. Something has to go seriously wrong.

    There is a difficult issue of bringing together close relatives who have been separated early in life. The feeling are so intense that even the closest relatives are driven to fall into an incestuous union- even with a pile of counselling beforehand. If they succumb, it ruins any chance of a genuine and fulfilling relationship.

    These are the forces that exist in families and are worked out over a lifetime. If anyone gets worked up about this post check out the literature before saying their is place waiting for in hell. One place to start-

      just because you find something repugnant doesn't mean it's because of a "gulity conscience". i would be more inclined to think someone in favor of incest would be a practitioner of it.

      having sex witrh relatives includes brother sister father mother etc. - if they are not relatives, what the hell are they?

      relatives include everyone, not just cousins. which is also sick. incest is incest, whoever you do it with.

    This is fairly simple to figure out.

    There has been medical science behind proof of genetic problem or defects, in children born through incest conception, direct relative, as in son and mother, daughter and father and sister and brother. This information has been made available for over 30+ years.

    (1) In an animalistic society, incest is proper and to be expected. This uses basic sexual interest to control life, instead of conscience. You would tend to mate like animals.

    (2) In semi-civilized society, incest is defined as immediate family, up to and including first cousins. After that, there is no restriction, as per law. This is American society. Incest is illegal, as per, Federal authorities. This varies from Country to Country.

    Hope I cleared that up. smile

    And to dismiss the probability of children from the union is unrealistic tant.

    Children happen all the time, accidentally, from unions.

    Otherwise abortion clinics would be out of bussiness.

    So. I am sure there would be children after a while from many of those unions. All having the potentail, to have deformed, or retarded children.

    It is a slippery slope indeed.
