Kissing Siblings

My brother and I were always close, but now we’ve started making out.

Dear Prudence,

My brother and I are having a physical relationship. Our parents are admirable people who took good care of us, but are distant and aloof, and I think that my brother and I turned to each other for warmth and emotional support. He’s two years older and looked out for me in high school, and I shared with him what girls are like, which made him more confident socially. After he went away to college, I chose a college in the same city as his, so we continued to see a lot of each other. I'm now a senior and he's a graduate student. About three months ago we were sitting on my couch watching a sad movie and when it was over we turned to each other, exchanged a look, and started kissing. Now we lie on the bed, clothed, and kiss and talk and hold each other. When I'm with him I feel loved and cared for. We have not had sex because there's a psychological barrier that neither of us wants to cross. I go on dates with other men, but I never feel the emotional connection that I feel with my brother. I needed to talk to someone about this so I went to a counselor at the student health service and in the first session she practically ordered me not to see him for three months. I left in tears and haven't gone back. We want to lead normal lives and have families. We both know intellectually that we shouldn't be doing this, but we don't feel the wrongness of it. Must we stop this immediately, or may we let it continue and hope we grow out of it?

Dear Sibling,

Since you’re both in your 20s, the trend appears to be going the opposite way of outgrowing your closeness. You say you don’t want to cross the ultimate line, but you continue to slow dance to the edge of it. If one day Jack’s resolve breaks, you, Jill, are likely to come tumbling after. You profess you two want normal lives, but if you violate this taboo you may never get there. If you do have an affair, or something pretty close, and you vow to forever keep this secret, you each will spend decades hoping your sibling stays silent. But if one or the other feels this is something a future romantic partner should know, don’t be surprised if upon hearing your confession your new love quickly backs away. I know I more or less gave a pass recently to a pair of middle-aged incestuous gay twins, but they had long ago made a physical and emotional commitment to each other, and were asking me about whether they should let their family know. I think even those two men would advise you two to stop the rubbing and get yourselves disentangled emotionally. Your therapist should have had the training not to be so shocked by your revelation that she ended up barking orders. Go back to the counseling office, say your first therapist was not a good fit, and you’d like to talk to someone else about a pressing emotional issue. A good therapist should be able to hear you out, understand your situation, and help guide you out of it. For a window into how strange things like this can get if they go too far, read Jeffrey Eugenides’ wonderful novel Middlesex.

Well, ask yourself who gave us the sexual revolution and started sexualizing everything?? Who gave us pornography and mass media? Who pushes for all kinds of "rights" for deviants? ACLU?

We are at a point in society where a lot of people don't know what part to stick into what hole and what is appropriate and what isn't.

So if the shoe fits ...

Only in this sick country could someone sexualize the relationship between brother and sister. And only in this sick country could someone two siblings be dumb enough to act on those images!

This reminded me of an old talk show episode(i think, Ricki Lake), were the show was about older women liking younger men. Well, this women took to this young guy, got pregnant and had the baby, but later found out he was her son, who she gave up for adoption at an infant age. Even after finding that out, they stayed together to excuse the remorse of a broken family. What a sick couple of hillbillies these two are. They even said the baby was healthy as a horse(LOL). Anyhow, they might have been innocent in not knowing at first, but this will be another retarded kin them liberals approve in society.
