Incest Porn: Current Scenario and Beyond

The growth of porn industry has been growing at a pace like never before owing to the revolution led by the internet and mushrooming of a number of online platforms offering the same. Incest Porn depicts sexual intercourse between people who have extremely close family relations. As step-blended families have increased in number, this type of porn has made its space.  It is nothing new and reflects our subconscious desires. It is also argued that its popularity is deep-rooted in the sexual repression we face in society.

Harmful Impact on Society

Porn in all its forms and means is considered harmful to society. Online websites and other platforms serving this type of content are acting as the agents of a dangerous societal norm that it is normal to use children as their sexual tools by the adults. It becomes even more dangerous considering the fact that most children, today, have access to online content. More often than not, they are the real victims. Moreover, what if the children crave something more outrageous than the last thing they saw? There is also a high possibility that the people consuming this content might involve in these activities which can have severe real-life implications witnessed in the form of prolonged jail terms and hefty fines if found guilty. People also get addicted to porn as it leads to having the same effect on the brain as that observed in the case of alcohol or drug consumption. It might help in strengthening the stereotypes associated with gender be it male domination or treating women as commodities. One of the biggest challenges is that there is a significant lack of education, which can push children into unsafe sexual practices such as not using the precaution to avoid unintended pregnancy.

What do the makers say?

Several actors, directors, and investors involved in the industry point toward the high demand for such content. For them, it is no less than a business. The majority of them have nothing to do with the long-term trauma and implications it can lead to in terms of mental and physical health. They also have a take on that since people are saturated with porn, they have to introduce fantasies and other such novel elements every now and then to attract consumers regularly. It is ironic that what kind of fantasy and charisma lies in the close relatedness of the two people engaged in sexual activities. As for the porn industry, the producers and performers stick by their craft—we don’t put all the blame on violent Hollywood films for mass shootings, so why should they be held to a different standard? It needs a good level of conscience to identify the line between realistic sexual norms and the heightened reality of porn, which might appear loose and thinner at times. If you watch such content make sure that you keep your consciousness awakened and adjust your behavior accordingly.
