Everyone's got a story
Incest is a strange topic. While some might think it’s disgusting or terrible, it’s completely normal in parts of the world. Regardless of your thoughts on the subject, it happens. Sometimes a lot, sometimes a little. Sometimes it’s serious, and sometimes it’s not as serious.
In any case, the story of dating relatives and the effects it has on families is an interesting story to hear. These Reddit users opened up about their experiences, and some of them will make your jaw drop.
I dated my best friend for a while until his dad caught us making out and told us that we were cousins. We didn’t believe it at first but my dad is a genealogy buff so we asked him. Sadly, 2 generations back there was an inheritance dispute in which my side kept the family name and his changed theirs to an alternate spelling of our great-great-great grandma’s maiden name. We tried to keep in touch for a while but it always felt weird and different. Haven’t spoken to him in about 4 years now but I’m sure we’re cool. (squirrel_nose)
It was real
A good friend of mine from high school used to make jokes about fingering his 15 yo freshman sister. We were juniors, and we all just thought he was just being grossly humorous, as many of us were, (albeit he was pretty over the line). No more than two days after HS graduation, he tells myself and four other friends at a party that he had sex with her. There was no joking in his tone this time. Although still not completely confirmed, we quickly dropped contact with him (he was on a dark path with drugs and serious crimes also). From what I know now, it did happen, and she consented to it. Who knows how long it had gone on before that. Both attempted suicide at different points after it got out. Idk how something like that starts. I don’t have a younger sibling, but damn, what a twisted situation that became. Five years later, I’m totally out of contact with them, but I feel for both of them, especially now that it is well known by people from our high school. (chicken_N_ROFLs)
People often ask me when the first time I had sex, my answer is 16…which is the first time I had sex with some not related.
The truth is at the age of 13 I had sex with my cousin. She was 12 at the time, and caught me watching porn. She watched it with me, and she asked if she could try out some of the stuff. It felt good, we always used condoms and knew what we where doing was really wrong. We had sexual relations for years, until she met what would then become her husband.
She’s now married to that guy, she admitted to me that me and her husband are the only two people she’s ever slept with… (continued)
