    Default Genetic sexual attraction: brother and sister lovers

    ewwwwww:

    ABC News: Brother and Sister, and Lovers

    Rachel and Shawn's love story sounds like something out of a fairy tale. They say it was love at first sight when they met almost eight years ago, and they have lived together as a happy couple ever since. But there is one crucial difference that sets Rachel and Shawn apart. They are part of a phenomenon known as genetic sexual attraction, or GSA.
    Psychotherapist Joe Soll says that, "genetic attraction is an attraction between two people who've been separated seeing someone they've missed all their life, all the emotion of that loss, sometimes turns into a sexual relationship." You see, Rachel and Shawn are half brother and sister.
    var oDiv = document.getElementById('columnad'); var embedDiv = document.getElementById('embed_links'); if(oDiv.offsetWidth > 160 && oDiv.offsetHeight > 300) { embedDiv.style.width = "238px"; } else { embedDiv.style.width = "360px"; }


    Rachel and Shawn who didn't want their real names or where they lived revealed were born only 28 days apart, from mothers who were pregnant by the same man. Despite having the same father, the two never met until they sought each other out at the age of 27. Rachel believes growing up separately is key to understanding their love.
    "Had we grown up together as siblings, as children," Rachel says, "this would have not existed."
    Regardless, they know they are breaking a social taboo, and they say they understand why people might call it incestuous.
    "We are related," Rachel says. "We're not going to deny that."

    'It's Like Kissing Myself'


    Rachel and Shawn insist they are just like any other couple.
    "I'm a normal guy," Shawn says. "I'm in fantasy football, I fish, I do everything that they do. I'm a normal person."
    Rachel says they go to work, eat dinner, watch TV and go to sleep just like other couples. And just like other couples, they have an intimate relationship as well. But unlike everyone else, they believe their attraction is actually heightened by their genetic similarities.
    "It's like kissing myself," Rachel says.
    After four years together, Shawn decided to propose to Rachel. However, they are not married, because no state in the country allows brothers and sisters to legally wed. Rachel does not want to have children, but the couple says they would not be afraid to start a family if she did.
    "I have two different sets of friends that are together," Rachel says, referring to other brother-sister couples. "Their children are perfectly normal......."

    Ewwww. It's not as if they met each other, fell in love and then found out they were related! They knew they were brother and sister, half or not, when they met! Have some self control FFS and call it quits.

    I read the whole article, and it was quite interesting. I don't think that the birth defect possibility is as big a deal as we generally think - it's not like monarchies marrying within their own gene pool for generations. But the taboo is there, nonetheless. Fascinating.

    Ew. They need to step away from each other, not get pregnant.
