Taboo sexual practice is something we do not talk about out in the open. These practices are severely looked down upon in society and are considered detrimental to the upholding of the social fabric. Taboo sexual practices may include incest, bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, and others. But here comes a very important question: what is the determining factor which defines whether a sexual relationship is taboo or not? The answer is very simple — the one that helps man propagate his species in the best way possible is not considered taboo. The argument is different when it comes to bestiality, necrophilia or pedophilia because there is a matter of consent which is being completely neglected in such cases.
But what about incest? Incest is a taboo because, as it is known to many of us, the offspring of an incestuous relationship has higher chances of being born deformed. Similarly, homosexual relationships were considered sinful because there was no chance of reproduction. IVF and other techniques are only recent inventions. Thus, what we have to remember is that any sexual relationship which does not give birth to healthy offsprings has historically been treated as immoral, even if both parties consent to take the relationship forward.
Incestuous relationships have been seen throughout history and have also found a place in arts and literature. Our very favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ is a prime example in this regard. If you’re interested in further exploring taboo or incestuous relationships, then you have come to the right place. Here’s the list of really good incest movies on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
6. My Teacher, My Obsession (2018)
This film follows the story of two school friends who come close to each other because they are basically loners and can never manage to make many friends. One of them, Riley, is new to school and her new friend is Kyla. Riley’s father teaches English in the same school, and we discover that Kyla has a crush on him. However, the relationship cannot proceed, not only because Riley’s father Chris is Kyla’s teacher but also because Chris is dating Kyla’s mother. Kyla gets very jealous of her mother, and she unsuccessfully tries to kill Chris and her own mom. Later, it is revealed that Chris is not a nice person at all and treats his daughter quite roughly. Moreover, he also tries to have sex with Kyla despite being in a relationship with her mother. The movie was panned by critics for its bad writing, and extremely generic plot.
5. The Monster of Mangatiti (2015)
