Brother-sister pairings in Japan seem to be more popular than any other taboo pairings, probably because of the lack of age difference, usually, and the fact that neither could be perceived as abusing or manipulating the other into it at first, unlike say, parent-child relationships, sure, it's more controversial, not to mention screwed up, but it's been in 18+ animated stuff for a while now, just because it's been introduced to a non-pornographic setting recently, in the form of imoutos and imouto type characters doesn't mean it didn't exist beforehand.

That being said, it's still immoral and IMHO gross. I write awful stories about screwed up families and screwed up characters myself, but by GOD, it's screwed up.

I dare you to find that prohibition anywhere in the bible.

You may want to start with Leviticus 18 & 20.



Before scientific proof about why incest is bad came to light, and I think that didn't come to light until like the 1900's, I read that it became taboo sort of as a backlash at aristocrats who often inbred. Don't quote me on that.

If you think about it though it could be possible. People with a lot of property had incentive to keep that property in the family. On the other hand poorer people had more incentive to send their daughters off to get married and form ties with other families.


I've read in the past that it was quite common place until the 1900s. Even going back into history they've proven that Cleopatra was married to more than one of her siblings and Tutankhamen was both born to siblings and married one of his own. The Aristrocrats (pre-1900) actually have been outed as having a "Lord of the Manor" air about them, believing themselves above the law. They would supposedly take a virgin on her wedding night before the groom if the mood struck them or a relative as a right of the "Lord of the Manor". It was a screwed up world for a long long time.

Well, if we're talking about consent, Japan's can be very vague. It's not only decided prefecturally but there is also a national age of consent too, but it's hard to tell, I think the national is 14, but for most prefectures, it's higher. I don't think most of them adhere to the national age, as it is very, very, VERY young…

Putting Japan's media into consideration is what makes the age seem kinda gross.

Be careful not to judge a culture (or the mind-set of its males) based on sub-genres of it's porn industry. Judge a place by what's popular--not what's niche.

After all, it's not like the US doesn't have a child-porn industry of its own (which is illegal if the actor is actually under 18, but legal if the character played is under 18), not to mention hard-core S&M, Snuff-films, bestiality, scat, etc. At least in Japan, the tendency is to just draw that sh*t, and not actually act it out.

In either case, the point of all of that is to be counter-cultural--to play off established norms. Or to put it another way, people make and watch it BECAUSE most people think that it's f-ed up. And that's true of both the US and Japan.

Actually, consent laws vary wildly by state:

Also, it is true that a few states allow marriage of first cousins

Oreimo was the first little sister focused series I watched, and I freaking love it.
To me, it all began with Oreimo.
