Why is Incest Porn Such a Big Deal?

Why is Incest Porn Such a Big Deal?

Almost all of us, out of utter desperation, or horniness might have seen or watched things which we found creepy or weird while we were in a non-horny state. The point I am trying to put across is, everybody around us has flicked the bean or sauced the carrot to something extremely weird which might make people recoil in trepidation if they came to know of it. 

Even though mainstream pornography tries to test our limits, and in many ways seem to augment them too, in a healthy amount of effort to get people off (ahem!), what is a rising trend in free hd porn searches are mostly related to incest, or what we call “Taboo” in pornographic language. Keywords like “daddy” and “stepmom” were commonly searched and were highly requested in most of the websites. It is no secret that incest porn is one of the expanding categories for numerous pornographic websites.

What is the Sudden Inclination toward Incest, Then?

For starters, almost a lot of us have seen a popular television show Game of Thrones, and it is no secret that the plot gets pretty incestuous. This does not necessarily mean that everyone is having a family get-together * cough*, and it is not even the fact that anyone even wants to have sex with their family members. Then what is the point behind watching pure taboo porn?

  • Cerebral kinks: if we go by the dictionary definition of kinks, we can see it is “an unnatural sexual attraction”. Kinks can be of bondage-discipline, or sadomasochism, i.e BDSM as we know more popularly. Incest porn plays into a lot of role-playing fantasies. Most of the incestuous porn is not really about getting into bed with their family members, but about exploring the power dynamics of the relationship. For instance, a daddy-daughter roleplay is not necessarily about fantasizing about your dad, it is about getting a sense of security and nurture which would not be derived from a different sort of roleplay, like a masseuse and a client.
  • Underlying appeal: forbidden fruits are the sweetest! The entire layer of having sex which is ‘forbidden’ or shunned by the regular throes of society is what gives it a huge appeal, akin to having sex in public places. This is a queer kind of gratification to rejuvenate the nervousness during people’s early sex lives which thrived on experimentation. This can also be seen as someone’s reposition of their bygone days of youth. Incest pornography can be compared to the “Gangnam Style” of eroticism, you just cannot stop watching that out of perverse allurement in week one, but the very next week, it makes your skin crawl!

Good old’ Freud: the more you look into the abyss, the deeper you can see the rabbit warren going. Can this sort of content really tap into our subconscious desires? If you can think back to your psychology classes and dig deeper into the Oedipus and Electra complexes, you can then argue that watching incest porn is nothing but a combination of dark wish-fulfillment, coupled with the entire forbidden factor. After all, forbidden fruits do sell!
