Consanguinamory on TV

Sam Berns has a light-hearted write-up, having noticed consensual incest (consanguinamory) being a subject on TV lately…

Now maybe it’s because I just read Hamlet and Hamlet in the play misuses the term incest(in my opinion) so I have noticed it more, or maybe it’s because I know a product of incest personally, or maybe it’s just because I have a very twisted mind. Maybe all three?

I’d like to hear more about the person the writer knows and the parents. I’m aware of, but haven’t watched, the shows to which the writer refers…

Anyways, on The Borgias takes place in the late 1400’s with the Borgias Family rising to the top of the Vatican with Rodrigo Borgias becoming the pope through murder and bribery. But the incest comes with his children Cesare Borgia and his sister Lucrezia Borgias. Now these two get intimate, they are yet to show them actually make out or do the beats with two backs, but there is some sexual tension which could be compared to that of a homeless man and his pet dog.

The Borgias were real people, but from what I understand, historians are unsure about whether or not any of them engaged in consanguineous sex. The other show is entirely fiction…

But the incest gets way more graphic in The Game of Thrones which premiered last night on HBO. Let me just say I have fallen in love with this show, I have this attachment to the character Bran who is a 10 year old boy who has a pet wolf, it reminds me of me and my dog Tibby(F--- you who thought I had some disgusting sexual attraction to the kid..Perverts). Anyways, I am not going to delve to deep into the plot of this show as it is so convoluted, but it’s pretty f---ing awesome if you enjoy kings, and swords, fantasy, sex, and good characters. But basically, at the end of the episode SPOILER ALERT a brother and sister, one whom is the Queen to the land, and the other who is part of the Kings Guard which could be compared to the secret service or the pimps thugs, end up shagging like they’re some rabbits jacked up on mountain dew.

As I’ve said before, a cansanguinamorous relationship is a useful plot element because of the legal, social, and religious restrictions that have been placed on consanguineous lovers, depending on the setting. I am interested in how these relationships are potrtayed. It would nice to have more positive portrayals. There are admirable people who have had that kind of relationship and there was nothing dark about it.

Have you watched either show?
