Love Is Not Sick

Novelists, playwrights, and screenwriters can find inspiration for compelling dramas, endearing comedies, and even some highly erotic romance from the reality of consanguinamory and treat consanguineous lovers with respect and sympathy. Instead, consensual sex and lovemaking between close relatives is usually relegated to part of the horror in horror movies and novels or a treatment along the lines of "aren't they terrible or sick people for doing that?"

At I found "Accidental Incest: The Movie," which is trying to get funding and publicity for a project that treats consanguinamory somewhat negatively; or at least, the campaign to get funding does, anyway.
Accidental Incest is a pitch-black romantic comedy that proves that love is relative!
Hmmm. That doesn't sound so bad.
Accidental Incest is the film adaptation of the award-winning play by Leonard Schwartz which was performed off-Broadway in 2012.
Did any of you see it? I would be interested in knowing how the subject was actually treated.
Accidental Incest is a sick and disturbing comedy about two people who find romance in this crazy world. The problem is that they are indeed brother and sister!

So they are left with a question: Should you be miserable or be with the one person who truly gets who you are?
"Sick and disturbing" is not what I've seen in real life.

The video at the link reinforces that this filmmakers are treating consanguinamory, which in this plot sounds like Genetic Sexual Attraction, as "sick." I understand that many people are disgusted by the thought of consanguineous sex and romantic relationships. But people who experience GSA and become sexually affectionate and others people involved in consanguinamory have to deal with enough trouble without another project that reinforces a stigma.

I implore those in control of this project to refine the material to make a positive difference. That would likely get more interest anyway. I invite them to contact me or take inspiration from what can be found here on this blog.
