In one of our recent articles we has a reference to Genetic Sexual Attraction. This is an occurance when two people related to each other fine themselves attracted to each other in a sexual or romantic way. Many people feel that its just a dressed-up term for incest, but others say it is a bit more complicated than that.
Since we had so much comment on this particular facet, we scoured the internet for information. We found the following article on TheFrisky.com. We offer this for information purposes only.
Let me preface this story by saying this is NOT the about the woman who breastfed her dad to save his life. This is an entirely different tale of father/daughter relations starring Penny Lawrence (28) and her long lost, dad, Gary Ryan (46). When all of her family members had passed away, abandoned daughter, Penny Lawrence, wanted to search for her last living relative—the dad she never knew. Her search led her from Ireland to Texas where she found her estranged father, Gary Ryan. The pair felt an immediate and powerful sexual attraction. Scientists call this phenomenon Genetic Sexual Attraction, which describes feelings of attraction between close blood relatives who meet for the first time as adults. It’s theorized that it happens because of our penchant to be attracted to mates who resemble us. Anyhow, this “feeling” led the father/daughter pair to start a relationship wherein Penny became pregnant with Gary’s baby. So far, the ultrasounds indicate that their love child has no defects. Unfortunately, the Genetic Sexual Attraction argument doesn’t hold up in court. It falls under the incest umbrella. The pair fears that they may be court ordered to end their relationship. So, there it is. What do you think? Should Penny and Gary be able to love each other without legal intervention or is it just too wrong? http://www.thefrisky.com/post/246-genetic-sexual-attraction-true-love-or-incest /
