Cristina Shy is an activist fighting for the rights of ALL consenting adults to share love, sex, relationship, residence and marriage, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, number of participants and whether or not they are related. Cristina’s activism is focused on Genetic Sexual Attraction and consanguinamory, and she joins NOL to explain why it’s important for people to know that not all incestuous relationships are abusive. In fact, many are completely consensual, loving and intensely special, as a result of what she explains further in the episode as the “double love bond”.
This is the first episode of two personal cases of consensual incest. Both episodes will shine the light on the flip side of Dr. Wish’s discussion, which zeroed in on non-consensual incest, specifically early childhood sexual abuse and the long-term effects of this trauma on adults.
Cristina, whose name and voice has been changed to protect her identity, tells her story of meeting her half-brother for the first time when she was 33, how she discovered GSA and was relieved to find that she was not alone, and why she is now one of the leaders of the movement of consanguinamorous people fighting to change the incest laws and gain the right to be in a relationship, have sex with, live with, and marry a relative. She also dispels the “Mutant Baby Myth”.
While she does not claim to be a professional counselor or lawyer, Cristina offers confidential one-on-one assistance to anyone experiencing GSA or consanguinamory who needs support, particularly when it comes to adoptions and reuniting with biological family members, or the legal issues associated with being consensual adults in an incestuous relationship.

In the next episode as part of this series, you will hear another leader of the consanguinamorous movement, Jane Doe, as she describes her consensual incestuous relationship with her dad as a result of a lack of the Westermarck effect. She will discuss incestophobia and their community’s cry for acceptance, how porn is fetishizing her people and why the fetishists are NOT the same as consanguinamorous couples, and much more.
