Questioning the Ethics of Incest

When it comes to the topic of incest erotica, nothing could be more forefront than parent-child relationships. There’s no relationship more debated or controversial than that of parent-child. In the public perception of incest, parent-adult child relationships bring only negative connotations. Often, such relationships are perceived as abusive, and many picture younger children forced into sexual acts. In erotica however, only consented parent-adult child incest is allowed and published. So why then, is the relationship so controversial? Parent-adult child incest should be a topic that is debated freely, expressed freely, and certainly published without negative consequences. Something about such an incestuous relationship however, often leaves only consequences and a cautious approach.

The main objection to any parent-adult child relationship, biological or not, is an abuse of position. A parent is supposed to do what is best for the well-being of their child. In most situations, a sexual relationship is seen as contrary to that standard of well-being. Taking a closer look however, the situation isn’t always as clear as society would like. In most cultures and societies, the age of consent, particularly with this kind of age difference, is around eighteen. Conveniently, eighteen is also the age where a child becomes a legal adult. Many children leave for college, live on their own, and start pursuing a more serious avenue for their future. To what degree then, does the responsibility of the parent to their child change and should there be the same standards regarding sexual relationships?

Looking at the standards applied to a non-biological parent, while often not advised, a sexual relationship is allowed to take place upon the child turning eighteen. Society is often quick to shake their heads in disapproval of the relationship, but it is still legally permissible. The relationship of biological parent to their biological child is under the same standard of societal rules. If the only issue with parent-adult child incest is the sex itself, then one has to wonder, what is expressly so wrong? Just because a sexual act is a cultural taboo, does not mean it should be legally impermissible. When it comes to parent-adult child incest however, that’s exactly what we find. There is a different standard placed on incestuous relationships, simply because of the cultural sensitivity to incest.

Incest erotica tries to often examine this different standard, even in the smallest of ways. Erotic eBooks try to make the reader think, and challenge common perceptions or ideas. Out of all the incestuous relationships, parent-adult child incest sells far better. What part of readers wants to examine this cultural taboo? Perhaps there is the acknowledgement that something within society doesn’t quite make sense. A story that allows societal norms to be challenged can only make such a society better long-term. Erotica not only examines the parent-adult child incest, but it examines the relationship itself. Authors often try to capture what for some people, is a mental struggle of sexual desires and ethical behavior.

While parent-adult child incest may not be approved of, that isn’t the end of discussion. Examining the cultural taboos, whether in writing or in conversations, can only add value to the situation. The bonds between a parent and child are often absolute, yet extremely complicated. Once a child becomes an adult, feelings of intimacy and love don’t simply cease to exist. Examining the responsibility a parent has to their child’s well-being will always be a critical part of better understanding incestuous relationships. Until society starts to open up though, the most common place to gain a better understanding will be incest erotica. This is why authors need to have a place to publish their work, and publishers need more awareness of the many censorship issues for such business topics. in the end, we have to do a better job of starting such discussions.
