Keeping it in the Family
Life is better with family, so they say, plenty to do and share. Having said that incest isn’t something you would naturally include in the ‘plenty to do’ section. Its an entirely taboo topic which I personally don’t condone, there are plenty of people I imagine who might and you would expect there to be evidence of this on the more underground side of the internet? Well Pornhub.com is not exactly underground, they have their own merchandising and they are not the only ones, RedTube.com and a bunch of other sites all host such videos for their extensive fan base to consume. The fact that it is so readily available is often joked about, the click-bait titles catch even the slowest of eyes. Links travel round messenger groups, its a wonder they don’t end up viral on Facebook.
The legalities of incest remain very mixed, there are different laws in different countries and states within those countries. For example in Brazil its completely legal whereas in the UK it is completely illegal and incest is illegal in Italy only if it provokes public scandal, according to Article 564 of the Penal code and punishable from 2 to 8 years’ imprisonment, open to more years for the older person if the other was under aged. Italy’s attitude is bizarre, the idea of something like that not provoking public scandal relies on no one finding out about it and exposing it, nothing gets in the way of a good scandal in Italy.
Incest despite being taboo is often the subject of jokes and comedic routines, Jimmy Carr and Borat being prime examples. They are normally the jokes the audience winces but the comedian enjoys, they then get reprimanded by social media and news programmes and have to apologise if it relates to a celebrity. Then there are a number of different TV series which have incestuous plot lines “cough” Game of Thrones “cough” Futurama and Two and a Half Men to name some.
Its not surprising that this content is available as widely as it is, the internet has opened us up and made it very easy for us to consume. Whatever our desire it is available somewhere out there and you’ll probably get more than you bargained for.
