I don’t know if my experience really qualifies as incest or not.
In my family, of which I am the first one out of the sticks it is not at all uncommon for 2nd or 3rd cousins to marry.
I guess that is the reason that when I watched the movie Deliverance the first time I certainly had more in common with the hill folk than I did with the city slickers from Atlanta out polluting the river. Anyway, when I was in High School, which was down in Texas, several of my cousins also attended school with me.
It is a difficult enough time for most teenagers to contend with sex to begin with, but with cousins it is possible to achieve a level of communication that you just cannot achieve with other friends. My cousins, three girls on my dad’s side of the family and two on my mother’s and I were all very close.
I was a good looking young man and although I had very few problems getting dates, my cousins and I were always very close.
At different times I had sex with all five of them. Two of them, one on my dad’s side and one on my mom’s are the same age as I am, while the others are one to two years older or younger. The first one that I had sex with is 2 years older than me. She was a majorette and cheerleader. We were close to begin with and sex seemed on the natural thing.
I guess she told the others and one after the other they all approached me. Never did I actually insist that we have sex. For all of them I was their first.
In one respect I should feel lucky, in others I guess I should be ashamed. Most of this occurred when I was between 16 and 18 years of age.
I joined the military in 1969 and went to Viet Nam.
It was the only right thing to do then. When I came back most of the girls were married or living in other towns.
I don’t think it really had a detrimental effect on any of us. We are still a very close family and we see each other every few years, usually when one of the old folks passes away. Only one of them has ever approached me again and this happened at a family reunion in the late 1970’s. She had a bad first marriage. Late in the evening she and I were setting around drinking beer. The subject of her first time came up and she said she always remembered it as one of the nice things between us. Before we knew it we were doing it again. The amazing part of the whole thing is that sex seemed to be the right thing for us to do.
It is entirely different than sex with your spouse, for one thing it is a lot more intense.
I don’t know if it is the taboo aspect of it or what, but sex with my cousins was the most physically exciting sex I have ever had.
Is it bad to look forward to such and experience? I don’t think so. Jeff Foxworthy sure knows about it, A redneck goes to the family reunion looking for girls. ha.
