"Kiss x Sis" dates from 2008-2010, unless you want to argue that it's technically not incest since the parties involved are step-siblings.

I mean there was no incest porns in porn sector before 2015. Yes, there was step mom-sister porns but they were "STEP" sisters or moms. Incest relationships got popularity with incest animes (likely 2005-2012 incest animes) and becuase of that porn producers decided to make incest porns like "S*sLovesMe" or "Fam*lyStrokes".

Pretty sure the spike in incest porn is due to Game of Thrones, and not anime. That show REALLY normalized incest in the mainstream, consistently for 8 whole years. Before that, I don't even remember ever seeing incest of any kind, let alone between actual blood related siblings in a popular TV show.

But I think more than anime or hentai, Japanese AV is more responsible for the increase in incest porn in the western/American porn industry. Just like hentai, there is a hell of a lot of incest in JAV, and those are in direct competition to western porn, since Japanese porn is more popular than not just hentai, but even other genres on a lot of porn sites. The western porn industry is even starting to produce serious porn with "realistic" drama after seeing how popular JAV is, when previously western porn usually used to be corny and over-the-top.

What the hell are you talking about, incest porn has always been a thing, weird/degenerate porn in general predates fucking paper books

Niche fetishes in general have gotten a larger spotlight in the past 20 years or so with the internet greatly increasing accessibility and visibility, because prior distribution was primarily through publications like magazines and VHS/DVD/whatever, and before the rise to prominence of stuff like that they were even less accessible

Japan did not will stuff like this into existence by creating works that feature these things

Incest porns in western porn sector weren't that popular before 2015.

Ok, so assuming that's true, that doesn't even begin to answer the question of "how" or "why" this would be the case, which is what I'm challenging you on in the first place

you are asserting this is because anime and manga featuring these aspects:

I'm saying that this assertion of "why" is completely smooth-brained

it neglects pretty much the entire development of pornography, how it's created, how it's distributed, and how visible and accessible it is, to offer the absolutely baffling reasoning of "Well it's been featured in anime/manga and now it's more popular so there must be a correlation somehow amirite?"

I meant the overall mainstream throughout the world, not the anime/manga community. Or is that manga also popular outside of the usual otaku community (kind of like Dragonball and Pokemon)?

I would say so. One of the most popular manga during its time, or at least I would see it ranked up there whenever checking sites (which made me check it out in the end).

The problem with anime is that all characters look perfect and attractive because it takes more effort to make ugly characters. Since all characters are perfect, that means sisters/brothers end up being perfect and attractive.

Ive actually dated my cousin, but we eventually stopped because it was a long distance relationship. And it had nothing to do with anime. I talked to my friend group and they said there was nothing immoral about incest, just consequences if you want to have a child. Even those consequences can be avoided though

No I do not think that anime is normalizing incest.I think there are very less anime that focus on showing incest and these shows are statistically poorly rated and have a small audience,meaning people do not enjoy watching such anime ergo less anime creators are even interested in making anime on such themes.

You know how certain people are obsessed with learning about murders, rape, pedophiles, etc?
That's me with incest. I just find it really fascinating psychologically but also don't really like things with sex in them so Japanese things like anime and manga give me the perfect blend...just sayin'

But yeah I unironically enjoyed OreImo and Eromanga quite a bit and everytime there's incest in something I find it 5 times more interesting than regular romance.

Not really. Most incest in anime is fetishized garbage, which is already seen in regular porn that a lot of average people watch. They see it for what it is and wank off to it or whatever but don't actually think incest is normal because of it.

The anime that do take incest seriously and romantically typically aren't watched by normal people, so those types of shows aren't exactly normalizing incest either.


What kinda anime that takes incest seriously and romantically anyway?

Koi Kaze does, someone already mentioned it on the first page. It doesn't normalize incest however, instead it creates sensitivity for the topic.
"We on earth have just awakened to the great oceans of space and time from which we have emerged.
We are the legacy of 14 billion years of cosmic evolution and we have a choice: we can enhance life and come to know
the universe that made us or we can squander our heritage in meaningless self-destruction."

Yes of course, its also normalizing autism.

GoT normalizing incest? Are you definitely sure?

If they were, why almost all people despise Cersei and Jaime if incest are normal? And why Cersei and Jaime didn't want the whole world know about their relationship and their borned kids?

Normalizing and putting such act into the scene is a different thing, IMHO.

I don't really understand with people that have incest fetish, since I don't even want to imagine I f*ck someone that has a blood related to me.

But I'm really sure this is just for franchise, I'm really sure especially someone who doesn't have an actual brother/sister, since one of my friend, a boy. He said he want to have a little sister if he can, and I'm just like "Wtf dude, get some help!"

I wish it were, but I don't see how. Yes anime is kinda mainstream at this point, but the reaction I see to most incest shows is disgust. If the show is good, then they'd wish there was no incest. Which is a damn shame, because the stigma against incest is one of the stupidest things I know of in modern society.

Incest subtext seems to be really common in a lot of Japanese media and treated like casual humor or even portrayed as not humorously at all.

Well I'm fine with it too; I'm just saying that incest subtexts are really common in Japanese media even in media that don't feature it as a centrepiece.

Scenes like this:



Will rarely be featured in Eurogenetic media — the story is not about incest; it's just thrown in there; a clingy sibling that behaves very incestuously and later down the story even remarks that one of his goals in life is to overcome crippling social anxiety and to normally "flirt" with his sibling.

OOF. So conclusion is that japenese people promote incest in a way to entertain the audience. That part makes it complex for the rest of the world to understand whether they are trying to influence us by incest or just making it a genre of entertainment.

Your first mistake is thinking that this shit is the Black Swordsman. He's not. This is the Black Swordsman.

Secondly, anime is normalizing incest the same way it normalizes slicing people in half with a katana; i.e, it's not normalizing shit.

But overall.... I have to agree with you. Anime uses many justifications in its promotion of incest amongst some characters. The popular trope is that they are step-siblings, but that also seems to be disappearing for something more direct. But than again, sexual behaviour in Japan seems to be borderline offensive if you look at some anime. Even if one is not arguing from an incest point of view, they regard misogny at times as being cute and funny (just look at all of the patting in the original dragon ball)

Will rarely be featured in Eurogenetic media — the story is not about incest; it's just thrown in there; a clingy sibling that behaves very incestuously and later down the story even remarks that one of his goals in life is to overcome crippling social anxiety and to normally "flirt" with his sibling.
OOF. So conclusion is that japenese people promote incest in a way to entertain the audience. That part makes it complex for the rest of the world to understand whether they are trying to influence us by incest or just making it a genre of entertainment.
I don't think they're trying to influence anything deliberately as much as that Japanese media just seem to be far more comfortable with deriving humor from subjects like incest, sexual harassment, racism, and domestic violence that would be considered too sensitive in other cultures.


It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

— Bertrand Russell
