FOR THE ATTENTION OF ALL NEWCOMERS

on Sat 9 Dec - 22:56
Welcome to Kindred Spirits! We try to be a safe and supportive community for people who are in relationships with, or are attracted to, their adult relatives.

Please read this entire post. It has two parts. The first is the forum rules. The second is a guide to getting the most out of KS.

The Rules


Since we've had some issues as of late with people being unsure of the forum rules (or simply not actually reading them, which often results in their being upgraded being delayed due to lack of sufficient information), I've decided to repost them to minimize disruption to the forum and to ensure that all newcomers know what's expected of them here.

There are a few ground rules here:

1. No pornography or links to it. This is not a porn, fap, or fetish site. There are plenty of those already. We are here for the serious discussion and support of loving relationships between consenting adults.

2. Likewise, no dirty stories please, this place must be kept clean.

3. No spamming.

4. No hacks/warez/mining or phishing software allowed on the forums, or links to such things.

5. Absolutely no discussion of sex between adults and persons under 18 is allowed, there will be no warnings and it will incur an automatic ban. Also, we know many people had their first sexual experiences as minors, with other minors close in age. It's OK to mention something like "my first experience was when I was young" or "we've been together since we were young," but it is NOT permissible to describe in detail sex acts or encounters clearly engaged in under the age of 18.

6. No harassing other members or asking for personal details, "proof," or "pics", that includes by PM.

7. You must post your introduction before being upgraded to view and post in the member sections. The introduction must make it clear you (and any current lover) are 18 years of age or older, and should give a sentence or two explaining your interest in this forum.

8. To be redundant, you absolutely MUST be 18 years old or older to join. Any posters found to be underage will be BANNED. The focus of this forum is CONSENTING ADULTS. If you are under the age of 18, please read this and come back when you're of age: http://marriage-equality.blogspot.com/2017/12/consanguinamorous-youth.html   and    https://consanguinamory.wordpress.com/teenagers-and-consanguinamorous-sexuality/

9. All of the above rules also apply to the chatbox at the bottom of the website.

10. No sexually suggestive or explicit usernames will be tolerated.

11. Only ONE account per person is permitted. If two people will be using the same IP address under different accounts, that is okay providing that you tell us in your introductions so that we know about it. This rule is to prevent trolling, and making sure that we don't accidentally ban legitimate users who share an IP address.

12. We will permit no posts which appear to justify anything which would be considered the grooming of minors, so no so-called "grey area" posts please, we take the welfare of children and young people seriously. If you have to ask the question "is it okay to post this?", the chances are it's inappropriate and it shouldn't be here. We know that it is the responsibility of adults, primarily parents & legal guardians, to raise able children to be independent adults. We also know that some adults freely choose relationships with their older relatives, including parents. However, any talk of wanting to have children in order to make them a partner will result in being banned.

13. We will permit no posts about off-topic and unjustifiable sexual acts, such as bestiality, necrophilia or other harmful and immoral acts where informed consent is rendered impossible, including, but not limited to, portraying molestation or sexual assault as acceptable.

The rules are there to ensure that the forum runs smoothly and we have a supportive and friendly environment in which people can discuss their relationships with other people who are going through the same issues. The rules concerning registration are there to enable us to filter out trolls, spies, underage users, and sexual predators. It is by no means a perfect system, but it does it's job 99% of the time. This gives all upgraded users a level of security that they would not have elsewhere. That's why we ask all people to make an introductory post, so we get a basic idea of what kind of people we're letting in. It need not be an essay, just tell us your age, age of your current partner(s), and your basic circumstance (such as, are you involved, or an ally).

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Getting the Most from the Forum


You'll get the most out of KS if you are trusted by others here, and if you find others here whom you trust. Trust takes time and involves being a little vulnerable. To help you establish trust here, we suggest you do the following.


  • If there is anything you're not sure about, ask and admin or mod. We're pretty friendly and we're there to help.
  • If you don't feel comfortable posting at first, read some of the threads so that you have an idea of what kind of people we are and what the community is like. This may answer quite a few of your questions.
  • Contribute to existing discussions, even if you're only seconding what somebody else has already said. This way we can get to know you a little better and it will build your confidence in getting to know others here.
  • Share some things about yourself, whether they’re about your love interests or not. They don’t have to be big things. You have to trust people a little for them to trust you, and that means being a little vulnerable.
  • Go slow. You’ve got time.
  • Try to find friends. Search through back posts and send a PM to someone you’d like to be friends with.
  • What you see in the posts is only the surface. A lot of activity in KS goes on in PM. (The forum rules still apply to PM.)
  • Be curious, but not nosy. Most people, consang or not, love to talk about themselves. Smile

We hope you enjoy your time on Kindred Spirits and find the friendship and support that you came here for!

Dear Jane,

I finally attempted to contact you on KS. My mis-spelled username failed to get me logged on so
I made a new membership. (Oscar1). Stumbling around a now unfamiliar KS, I discovered the correct Username and it still works.
So now I have to delete Oscar1. This new site looks pretty good. I hope you are well. RM

To be fair, you haven't been here in a while so it's not surprising that you forgot your login details. No worries, I will delete 'oscar1' and you can continue to use your account now you have access to it Smile I think you'll find the developments around here to your liking, it's bigger and busier than you remember it. It is good to see you back Smile

Hi Jane. Just to say thank you for deleting Oscar1, and welcoming me back.
Hope you are enjoying life and your family members are all well. Sometimes I wonder, if we spent a few million on
advertising as others have done, we could have a lot more supporters. I noticed one time I came to this site, there were adverts for Sydney real estate. But now the ads have gone. That's a relief. I have difficulties concentrating with such distractions flashing by when I am trying to read. Perhaps I am becoming autistic! Bye for now. xoxo

Sorry for not. My introduction is perhaps impermissible.
