As part of NOL’s series coverage on the taboo topic of incest, Jane Doe joins the show to take the conversation a step further. She explains NON-GSA. This is quite different from Cristina’s experience of incest, when she met her half-brother at age 33. As you learned, GSA couples generally do not grow up together due to adoptions or fostering, and they meet later in life.
Now, Jane explains how her lack of the Westermarck, or the “ew” effect when it comes to your blood relatives, resulted in an 8-year on-again/off-again relationship with her own father, starting at age 19. She debunks the myths associated with consensual, incestuous relationships, explains why the term incest should not be used when referring to consanguinamorous people since it implies abuse or trauma, shares information about how people who lack the Westermarck effect are actually wired differently, why she believes that consanguinamory is an orientation like being gay, how incest fetishists are causing problems for the consang community, why she is one of the leaders of the consang rights movement to begin the fight toward awareness, and ultimately the reversal of laws that currently make incest illegal, and much more.
As with Cristina, Jane’s name and voice have been altered to protect her identity.
Jane has offered additional information about her community and their movement through her website or private consang group.
