Incest between twins

Incest between twins or twincest1 is a subclass of sibling incest and includes both heterosexual and homosexual relationships While in modern Western European culture such behaviour is considered taboo, incest between twins is a common feature in Indo-European, Asian such as Japan and Bali and Oceanian mythology, and there are a few societies in which the prohibition on it is limited or it is partially acceptedcitation needed

In Asian cultureedit

In traditional Balinese culture, it waswhen common for a set of twins of the opposite sex to marry each other, since it was assumed that they had had sex in utero The standard anthropological explanation of this custom is based in explications of the conflicts between descent and affinity in Balinese society2 Twin incest was a common feature of Balinese mythology As in many other mythologies, the Balinese deities frequently marry their siblings without any of the incest-related issues faced by similarly-situated human couples

This was commonplace in Southeast Asian creation myths which prominently featured twin or sibling couples In these stories, the brother usually wooed and wed his sister, who bore his children, but on discovering that they are siblings, they are often but not always forced to part3
