Sex is such a powerful word. It holds the power of control, creation and the future all in one place. But what about the sex we should not be having? Is there any sex that we should call out as wrong and why? After all we are animals, but our conscious keeps us one step above. So do we stoop to a lower level, or should we hold our selves to a higher standard?
The reality is this. First cousin marriage, which still happen today, are just not healthy. There are many reasons, but the best one, is the one you can never fix. That is genetic defects. We can assume that everyone already knows this but even today there are lingering doubts. But the facts remain that marrying your cousin will give DNA too much of a close mix, so much so that genes which are defective might be chosen. It is hard to read two strands of the same DNA for the differences in them. It leads to errors. While I can not say that the sex between cousins is a bad thing, or morally wrong, it is potentially dangerous for offspring.
Incest, sex between parents, sisters and brothers, is always a bad idea. That is because of many problems emotionally, which surrounds the destruction of inter family bonds. Those bonds are vital for proper behavior in society, and with children that they night have. It is destructive for people to see family as sexual partners. Even though as adults it can not be labeled as a moral corruption, it can be devastating for children who’s young minds are not matured for that kind of sexual dynamic.
Bestiality is another form of improper sex. People have gone so far as to say that the animal consents to the sexual act, but since animals are unable to reason how can this be? It is not possible for something to consent when it has not clue, other than biological ones what is going on. It is in no way a form of sexual consent. Though animals can be vicious they also are very submissive to the dominance of their owners. They may not react with them as they do a stranger due to a pattern of rewards for their behaviors. To say that an animal can consent to sex with a human is a deluded thought at best.
We all know that there are kinds of sex we should not be having. There are kinds of sex that we have to justify to our minds. We seek out patterns and the variations that we make have to be justified. It can be good to go against what society tells us, but not when it puts the mental or physical health of others at risk. Sex can be a pleasurable and wonderful thing, but when taken too far can be highly destructive. It is fine to be liberal and take back the power of your sex, but using it to manipulate or take the power from anyone is wrong. We are responsible for our sex and to the person that we are having sex with. That is a heavy burden at times. One of the things that makes us conscious beings gives the responsibility to enjoy and be responsible for our sex. These forms of sex are not taboo just because other people might find them unappealing, but because how they damage the social structure in our minds.
