Why am I attracted to my second cousin?

Question by Jane doe: Why am I attracted to my second cousin?
He is a little over 10 years’ older than me. We are both adults in mid-age. We share a mutual attraction, but have never done anything about it because we are blood-related (he is my dad’s first cousin). Every time he hugs me, he kisses my neck at-length and this puts unexplainably pleasant shivers and up down my spine. Does this sound like a case of pheromones at play, independent of whether we are related or not? (I never believed in the phenomenon they call “genetic attraction”, but now I do).

Answer by Wiz
You are attracted because you are people who like each other. There is nothing wrong with being attracted to a second cousin. The only prohibitions have always stopped at first cousins and even they were not founded on any good scientific reason. You are both adults, enjoy each other.

    It’s pretty much like any other love.

    Your second cousin isn’t very closely related to you. They’re just slightly more genetically similar than a complete stranger. If you were to have children with them, there would be no problem at all. I suggest you pursue your love, there is no harm in it.
