I thought the reason for this is because it's not real/ it's fictional. Most things are less inappropriate in fiction to most people. I mean, look at fanservice- you probably would think it's real sick if real middle school girls wear sexy outfits in real life but you can just dismiss it as stupid fanservice in fiction and ignore it. Also violence, if those tsundere are real girls beating guys up for no apparent reason in real life, someone would've called the police.

Also, anything can be a fetish. Whether it's incest, bestiality, or anything really. I don't think it has anything much to do with Japan's history.

Most incest situations are adults abusing minors. That's why I hate it.

If both parties are adults and no one is manipulated or raped, then I could care less if people want to sleep with their mom/dad or siblings even though I would never do it...

To answer the question, I think incest is part of humanity and it is how humanity survived in the beginning, you can see incest even in the Bible, Abraham married is half-sister. Lot had sex with his daughters to continue the line since his whole town and wife were destroyed and many others.I t is said that asians existed way before the bible was written so it is understandable that they had an incest history too XD



Didn't we all exist before the bible was written? This line of Homo Sapien Sapien existed for 200,000 years.

Because it's a forbidden relationship and people seem to those kind of relationships as long it's between brother and sister in my opinion its much more popular than you might think also it's like a fan service for otakus like me who are siscons and some people see it as a fetish and I know why people see it as wierd but you have to keep an open mind. A more in depth explanation is they grow up together since they were kids and always were together so obviously one of them grew attached to the other or both leading to a romantic relationship but since it's forbidden they have a tough time with it A good example is Haru and Sora in Yosuga no Sora. And I mean who doesn't like imoutos and them saying Onee- chan

Because it's a guilty pleasure that's forbidden in most cultures?

All I know is that America didn't exist at the time and Africa and Asia existed before the bible was written.

i think its partly because its forbidden in RL also because through out most human history incest was somewhat common weather its royalty or people living in a small village or tribe quite often throughout our history people likely didn't have much choice in mates other then cousins or siblings so on a instinctive level humans likely don't care or some causes may have been preferred. but our knowledge of the genetic damage that can cause has overridden that mind set in most places where that is known.

Now, y'see, when the linked column was published on AnimeNewsNetwork, the reasons given were anime-related ones:
"Japanese boys are terrified of asking girls out, since they spend their entire school years not being allowed to learn how, so an adoring younger girl who ALREADY lives in your house full time is more comfortable to dream about."

Watch what happens when it becomes a CR General Discussion thread:
"What's so wrong about it, anyway? It's our LAWS and our outdated intolerant attitudes, that's the problem!"

Incest was also popular among European royalty and almost all of the current royald are related.


The first half of your sentence is incorrect. The Churches of Europe had tight control of the degrees of separation allowed before a declaration of incest was invoked. Royal marriages abided by the degrees of separation and so incestuous marriages didn't occur (though there are certain rumours about the rulers of Byzantium prior to the crusades, but that could have been weighted by propoganda).

Were the marriages incestuous? No.
Was it a good idea to regularly marry cousins together over a period of centuries? No.

It's the taboo and at some point it seams rational if your sexually repressed (probably a part of that whole survival of the species thing). Ultimately no body wants a three limed, one eyed mutant baby that can't feed themselves. We make it illegal and that is what creates the taboo.

probably true some extent for example in cases where a disease or something destroyed a large percent of a population human or otherwise the chances of survivors choosing to mate or whatever with closer relatives increases which in someways may help the remaining population since their offspring is more likely to inherit whatever genes helped them survive though at the same time more likely to inherit bad genes as well. though the really bad effects are usually from my understanding if it becomes really common place to pretty mcuh only marry close cousins and siblings
