Germany’s national ethics council is urging the government to abolish laws criminalizing incest between siblings after scrutinizing the case of a man who had four children with his sister. The council argues that such bans impinge upon citizens’ rights to sexual self-determination. The council found incest to be a “fundamental” right, and carries more weight than society’s “abstract protection of the family.”
“Incest between siblings appears to be very rare in Western societies according to the available data but those affected describe how difficult their situation is in light of the threat of punishment,” the council said in a statement. “In the case of consensual incest among adult siblings, neither the fear of negative consequences for the family, nor the possibility of the birth of children from such incestuous relationships can justify a criminal prohibition.”
The couple’s plight highlighted the “tragic situation” many incestuous pairs find themselves in, according to the council. It does not seem as if the government will agree, however, or if it will take the committee’s recommendation. A spokesperson for Angela Merkel’s ruling Christian Democrats party suggested the government is unlikely to abolish incest laws.
“The abolition of the offense of incest between siblings would be the wrong signal,” Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, legal policy spokeswoman for the party’s group in parliament, said in a statement. “Eliminating the threat of punishment against incestuous acts within families would run counter to the protection of undisturbed development for children.”
You may remember Czech teenage twins Elijah and Milo Peters, who rocked the gay world with their ‘twin incest’ gay porn videos for Bel Ami. The boys were willing to French kiss, perform oral sex on each other, and have anal sex in front of the camera.
“My brother is my boyfriend, and I am his boyfriend,” said one of the twins during a phone call to Salon from Prague. “He is my lifeblood, and he is my only love.”
Salon describes one of their many ‘twincest’ videos:
Then things get a little more intense: They kiss passionately, jerk each other off, give each other blow jobs, and finally, in the grand finale, have unprotected anal sex with each other on a couch.
