- By the Gulag wall.
Fancy a frolic with your sister? Or your brother? Or mother too? Soon, you won't have to feel disgust at the thought, as the Varadkar Régime is now looking into making the whole thing perfectly legal.
“The commission will also look at the law on incest, which criminalises vaginal sexual intercourse between blood relatives.
Consenting intercourse between an adult brother and sister, even if there is no risk of pregnancy, is a crime. “One might question if such conduct should be criminal.””
The law provides us powerful moral signals as to what kind of behaviour is, and is not, acceptable. Is it a good idea to lift the ban on incest? Probably not.
