Question

I am sure that Incest is against SL TOS but I cannot find the exact place it states that...I need to warn people to drop incest like a hot potato

As far as I know LL doesn't have a policy on incest.  They have a policy on age play (see link below).  But as long as both parties are adults and both avatars appear to be adults then I don't think there is anything in the TOS to stop them from pretending to be related and in a sexual relationship.

It's not. As long as both parties are consenting adults, i.e. over the age of 18 in RL, and both parties are playing as adults, meaning that both are playing as over 18, LL doesn't really care. Incest in and of itself is perfectly permissable, so there's not need to warn people off of it. If they want to roleplay that way, they can, and if you are offended or for any other reason disagree with such play, you can simply keep yourself out of it.

There is no Linden Lab policy regarding incest. Don't forget that this is a virtual role play world and so "true" incest (with its biological genetic problems) is impossible. The only issue to be aware of is that sexually consenting avatars must both be adults and must NOT be role playing minors.

By the way: The basic of incest is that both persons have a close genetic relation to each other, but an avatar simply don't have any genetic code. :matte-motes-bashful-cute-2:

So its an imagination in the mind and the TOS don't care about what goes on in peoples brains. Its like roleplay slavery, forbidden in RL but harmless fun for some people here. Only if there is a child avatar involved you can do something against it.

Lorelei,

As many have stated before, there is no specific language in the TOS or Community Standards covering the concept of incest. Age-play is not allowed per-se but all other behavior virtually experienced here in SL by consenting adults is allowed [somewhere] by fiat. By this I mean that if a pair of avatar accounts want to have a open incestuous relationship, they can as long as it's carried on in private and only in public where such behavior is also allowed/ignored by the parcel/estate owners.

Estate owners and owners of Adult Mainland parcels may have more restrictive or more explicit rules than stated in the LL TOS. Adult estates are usually very accepting of this type of relationship and role play.

If a pair of avatars chooses to walk into a PG club and openly emote the nature or their their incestuous relationship, the owners/management are within their right to ask them to leave and/or including banning.

Incest cannot exist in a virtual world, such as second life. For one, most families in SL are not related by blood, and if a person does wind up dating an ex-family member.  Then that is perfectly fine.  Like unless you are dating an actual blood relative in RL, within your immediate family, that is incest. Not a Brother and Sister in SL, that by definition is not incest.

I just want to point out that of all the people saying something about it being a necro or just commenting, only @Lindal Kidd had poseted before the necro. She is the only one here that would have gotten a notification. Mind you, i hate necros as well, but sometimes they are just funny. 

Why would incet be against the ToS, its not illegal in most US states unless it is between blood siblings or parents and children. Cousins can marry in most states. Scary isnt it.

Except for those of us that also get notifications for posts made by those we follow - thus I got a notification on it as soon as Cindy responded to the necroposter.

In the US, in all but 2-3 states, incest between consenting adults is criminalized. Almost all of those states include much more than blood siblings and parent/child relations, many even include 'by marriage and/or adoption' in the classifications.

Wait, am I the only one who always uses this to see which topics have recently been responded to? https://community.secondlife.com/discover/unread/#
