In the late 1960s, when my mother and I began the love affair I described in Taboo: A Memoir, I foresaw legions of mother‐son lovers on an incest crusade to overthrow patriarchy, to render its violence and domination extinct, to break out of the old myths that still shackle our culture. Now more and more erotic pioneers are taking the plunge. We may not be legions yet, but our numbers are rapidly growing, as this collection of memoirs attests.

These are personal experiences sent to me by readers — mothers and sons, fathers and daughters, sisters and brothers — of Taboo: A Memoir. Iʼm pleased that my book inspired and encouraged them to tell their own stories. With their permission I have edited and sometimes rewritten them into this anthology, and together we dedicate it to all the silent crusaders out there.

Predictably, the puritanical powers have responded to this challenge with a campaign of fear and repression. These reactionaries are determined to scare everyone back into sexual regimentation. This proves the liberation movement is a threat to them.

We donʼt need to submit to their prudery; its power is only as great as our acquiescence. We can defy their control and create a future that offers humanity more possibilities.

Itʼs time that we humans admitted and accepted our nature. Itʼs time, in fact, that we celebrated it.

The blanket persecution of incest is unfair and unnecessary in these days of birth control. In the right circumstances family sex can be a positive, fulfilling experience.

We should keep in mind, however, that it is not always so. When it involves persons under eighteen, it can be harmful. Thereʼs nothing positive about child molesting. Children arenʼt autonomous yet, theyʼre not fully formed, so having sex with an adult, especially a parent, can make too deep an imprint on them.

For family sex to be beneficial it must be between consenting adults. Consent doesnʼt mean giving in, it means agreeing, and it means being old enough to know what youʼre agreeing to. In our society thatʼs eighteen. No kids allowed.
