Good and realistic(-ish) incest ideas?

Even finding one of those is kind of hard. I don't know if there are any fans of Big Mouth but that Florida episode is a lot like an idea I have, except that instead of Cherry being the cousin, it's Vicki, so that a city slicker male cousin is creepily aroused by his country girl cousin and her uninhibited ways and speech patterns and mannerisms.

I had a similar constellation in the backstory of one of my characters. It was male identical twins who were very close to each other. One of them was jealous of an uncle with whom the twin spent too much time. When the twins were studying, living together in a flat the jealous twin seduced the other one while they were both drunk. The seduced twin said they should be reasonable and not to this again, but the other one couldn't accept that and seduced him again and again. But when they had finished studying the jealous one became furious when the other one dropped him and married a woman. The jealous twin was heartbroken left the country, became a really violent brute who murdered and robbed people and was very feared.
So it was also a case of someone being possessive about his twinbrother.

On „normal“ boards (with sidewide plots, so no 1x1 roleplay) the staff demanded to edit the twincest out. That happened on boards with 3/3/3 ratings, where it was O.K. to describe the most brutal murders in every detail, but to have non-violent twincest in your character's backstory was a no-go.
I was pondering to roleplay a younger version of this character, looking for someone who plays the other twin. So that we roleplay the student years of the twins. But after getting so many appalled reactions for twincest in the backstory I rather wanted to spare myself further hassle and doubted that I would find anybody who wants to roleplay such a plot. I suppose that would be only possible on boards like Bluemoon.

I also had a character who was a vampire who had been born in the 18th century, and he kept track of the human family members. The vampire invited a direct descendant of his brother to the family residence. So the vampire was that young male human's Greatgrandgrandgrand...uncle. It was planned that the vampire falls in love with the young man, seduces him and turns him later on.
I started roleplaying this on a Googledoc, unfortunately the roleplay buddy ghosted on me. I would have liked to roleplay that with someone else but didn't find anybody.
The characters weren't that closely related. Even so most people didn't want to know me any more as soon as I suggested such a pairing – when I looked for 1x1 roleplay buddies on a recource site. That's one of the reasons why I'm back on a board where people are more open-minded for taboo-pairings.
Incest is a hard pitch because there are two extremes; people who are completely repulsed by it and won't entertain it at all and people that get really...weird about it lol. I mean, it's weird to begin with but there's a different weird where they'll ask about real-life siblings.

But anyway, moving on from that, I do a lot of MxF pairings so my twins are usually fraternal male and female ones. Out of two of MxM twincest roleplays I've written, one was based on a movie called Brothers Of The Head, about conjoined twins that were raised in this isolated house. So yeah, that whole thing was ripe with potential. Because of the conjoined twin part of the plot, I doubt this short-lived RP will ever get revived.

For me, I think the problem with a lot of incest RP is that no attention is paid to the fact that the characters (in most RP) have known each other for years and have some kind of bond. This is, sadly, most often the case in family RPs, which is why I think they are so unsatisfying. In addition, they tend to be just free use scenarios, with no exploration of how the incest has affected their relationships or family dynamic. I love incest RP, but the relationships should be the focus.

Something many of us have noticed as well. The characters just have sex as if they are any other two people having sex. No reference or discussion of the severe limit they are crossing of how it feels to cross that line with someone etc. Let alone how it impacts the two relatives later.

It's an interesting topic which is often executed poorly.

My incest plots usually have things like family separations or other factors that prevent them from being as close as one would think of family members as being, so there are reasons why that may be the case, but not a majority of the time.

If there's a reason, then that's fine, which is why I say most RPs. I've definitely done the whole "oh shit, you're my (fill in relation)" before, and then made it about trying to decide what type of relationship they SHOULD have, and it can be both hot and interesting.

Also, @Dirty Fingers, I love negotiating the line as well. Kind of a "how far is too far?" approach. Some of that is due to a fondness for teasing, but I also think eroding boundaries are more suited to incest RP than suddenly collapsing ones.

A little bit off-topic, but isn't that basically with a lot of sexual scenes on the (mildly) taboo/darker side of things? I genuinely wouldn't want to have to feed the females who request rape-scenes and when giving them something that I think is possibly realistic, them running away, because 'that's not what I expected'.

Rape and Non Con generally don't interest me as it seems the person playing the "Victim" would be responding with not much at all really given their character is being forced. I am not sure if some people get into the more psychological side of it which could be interesting and I do have an odd idea centered around this topic myself.

For me though it is far more interesting for a character to agree to do something extreme even if it's humiliating to explore that is more fascinating for me.

In terms of "realism" I did a while ago try a rape RP with someone who said they were a victim of rape. I found that she was using it as some kind of therapy and the lines between fiction and reality were very blurred. Overall I got a sense of "darkness" and had to stop playing. Darkness in a fiction sense is fine but when I feel the person is recounting what happened to them and are just writing paragraphs of dialogue regardless of what I am writing than it does get creepy.

Same with incest I guess. One thing to play at it for the sake of flexing creative muscle and another to start thinking the person is really into this/has done/wants to do it for real.

Sorry for the lengthy spiel.

Speaking as someone who enjoys this sort of thing: like a lot of fantastical setups it requires a degree of willing suspension of disbelief.

"Realistic" portrayals are almost always going to be pretty icky (to say the least) because the point of the taboo is the subversion of a non-sexual relationship.

I think we hit a good way to do it in one of my RP's with Digital, a lot of them do require a certain suspension of disbelief but in My Sister's Keeper, I could believe the scenario. I would say give it a read but trigger warnings for those who might be upset by tales of physical (not sexual) abuse by parents. The roleplay is entirely consensual too.

Another one of my quasi kind of ideas here rather than full on incest but it is based on situations that have actually happened. Stories from the film industry where a father for example has directed his daughter in a sex scene or nude scene. Situations like that could be interesting if done well.

Also, something where the parent prostitutes their offspring in some way or maybe even the (adult) child helps the mother get into porn or selling themselves in some way. That sort of stuff intrigues me without it necessarily ending up full scale incest.
