Incest pornography

Incest pornography is a genre of pornography involving the depiction of sexual interaction between relatives (aka incest). Incest pornography can feature actual relatives, but the main type of this pornography simply uses actors of similar looks to suggest family relationship. It is illegal in many jurisdictions. For example, in Australia it is rated "Refused Classification" (RC). Arguably the most famous example of the genre is the Taboo series. The first film was released in 1980 starring Kay Parker. It spawned numerous sequels, several of which won pornography awards. There is a substantial amount of incest pornography on the Internet, leading some to argue it may legitimize or encourage real-life incest. Jeffrey Masson has even argued that incest porn is "the very nucleus of pornography — its prototypical form", and that "all pornography is fundamentally devoted to promoting incest".
