← Back to: List of phobias

Incestophobia is the fear of incest, meaning to do sex on family members or close relatives, which is illegal by criminal law in some countries. Incestophobia is a branch of genophobia, which is fear of doing sex on anyone. People being with the family suffering from incestophobia would constantly worry that a member could suggest or force to do sex on them. So sufferers are self-advised to stay away from the family and live with friends or colleagues, while severe sufferers would move to a faraway place without telling anyone they know. The fear is usually caused by being sexually forced by family members or of one's family doing sex on the other member.
