Talk:incest

Return to "incest" page.

The page currently says A sexual relation between a parent and his or her offspring. Is there a source for this definition? It is my understanding that the word actually means a sexual relation between close relatives, usually blood related -- Nick1nildram 07:52, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

NoteEdit

* BTW: I stumbled into the middle of this when I linked from Wikipedia - I just did a quick cleanup (grammar-wise) so I have no stake in this. However, if you're looking for a consensus, I think the definition regarding "sexual relations between relatives" is probably more accurate. Perhaps the best compromise would be to make that the #1 definition and move the current definition ("parent and offspring") to #2. Gate2Valusia 08:04, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

    • Speak of the devil! Someone just fixed it - the definition looks correct now. Gate2Valusia 08:17, 21 August 2005 (UTC)
