countries where adult consensual incest is not illegal.

on Mon 18 Apr - 11:11
Some time ago I attempted to make a list countries where adult consensual incest is not illegal.
Fort some reason I have decided to put this list here for others who may pass this way and find the information useful.

Wikipedia does not have an exhaustive list,  and makes  no attempt to explain why the  mostly English-speaking  countries have so far not
modernized their legal  systems on this matter, as did France and others, up to  200 years ago.

Wikipedia says:
"France, Belgium and Luxembourg

The 1810 penal code promulgated by Napoleon I and adopted throughout most of Europe abolished incest laws in France,[41] Belgium and Luxembourg. On 27 January 2010, France reinstated laws against incest. The new law, however, defines incest as rape or sexual abuse on a minor "by a relative or any other person having lawful or de facto authority over the victim".[42] Incest between consenting adults is not prohibited."

Wiki doesn't mention, in regards to the de-criminalisation of ACI  200 years ago in France, that  France  decriminalized homosexuality then  too.
Nor does the wiki site mention that for about 400 years consanguineous marriage was legal and in fact encouraged as a pious act by the then church of the Zoroastrian religion in Sasanian Persia.


Please find  below a list of countries  (and populations) where adult consensual incest is not illegal.
If I have left any out that you have found, or you find that  I have made an error, please advise.

Anglos are ashamed of sex. We have been since the Reformation. Then we exported that shame via colonies and Empire.

Thanks for taking the time to draw up this list, it is very useful and helpful to people who are considering moving to a safe country. I had no idea that there were these many countries where it was legal, having only seen the wiki page on incest laws.

It's interesting to compare how incest is defined and prosecuted in different countries. I'm from Germany and our law is really outdated and absolute irrational. Incest between consenting adults seems only to be prosecuted if it involves intercourse:

'German Criminal Code/ Section 173
Incest

(1) Whosoever performs an act of sexual intercourse with a consanguine descendant shall be liable to imprisonment not exceeding three years or a fine.
(2) Whosoever performs an act of sexual intercourse with a consanguine relative in an ascending line shall be liable to imprisonment not exceeding two years or a fine; this shall also apply if the relationship as a relative has ceased to exist. Consanguine siblings who perform an act of sexual intercourse with each other shall incur the same penalty.
(3) Descendants and siblings shall not be liable pursuant to this provision if they were not yet eighteen years of age at the time of the act.'
http://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/englisch_stgb/englisch_stgb.html#p1504

In France the law regarding incest is much wiser in my opinion:
'On 27 January 2010, France reinstated laws against incest. The new law, however, defines incest as rape or sexual abuse on a minor "by a relative or any other person having lawful or de facto authority over the victim". Incest between consenting adults is not prohibited.'

What all would that entail? I looked it up, but I'd like to hear directly from a pagan.

Iwe read that in Malaysia or Indonesia boy girls twin were often arrange to marriage each other because they believed they had sex in the womb. Well we can both say we are very jealous of that.

I think the idea of twins (both fraternal and identical) that have life long relationships are ridiculously romantic. Together in the womb, together in childhood, together in adulthood, together in old age, together in the grave. You can't tell me that's not romantic!

Yeah really it is quite romantic to think about like that. especially since we were monoamneotic so we got to share the same fluid filled sack no placenta to separate us.

Thank you for listing these countries. I'm liking France, me and my brother talked about France. I have to learn the language (LOL) but if that's a place where my brother and I can go and live the way we want to live...Vive la France

I like France as well but I also like the thought of Spain but with Spain I'm wondering what exactly constitues a "scandal" a domestic issue or just a nosey neighbor reporting you. Brazil sounds nice also

Spain really is fine with consanguinamory. As fine as anyone can be in 2017 anyway. There's obviously still a long way to go. But not too long ago, two siblings came out as lovers on a prime-time and popular tv program, and the audience and host reacted positively (they even applauded). Afterwards some religious/conservatives started sending hate and threats to the program's TPTB for "promoting incest during children's schedule", but still, I think most people were fine with it or didn't care. I was honestly amazed and proud of my country, for once.
