Artist List for Shipcest Art Commissions

If anyone is wondering, there is a list of artists that are open to drawing consensual incest (OCs or fan art of incestuous ships in fiction). There are categories for different styles of art (e.g. cartoon style, anime style, realistic style), sfw and nsfw.

If you’d like to know about this list, check out the shipcest discord channel:

You’ll find the list in the Commissions section. If you or someone you know is an artist that is open to taking these kinds of commissions, feel free to comment here with a link to your art page (or comment in the discord channel) if you’d like to be put on the list ^_^


Video by a Cousin Couple


The above is a video by the cousin couple from that Utah news article that I posted here earlier (sharing for educational purposes).

They also have a YouTube channel in which they post other videos about their relationship, if you want to check it out:

And they have a Facebook page here:

Description on their Facebook Page:

We are first cousins from the Wakamatsu family. We have loved each other our whole lives. We believe in the transformative power of unconditional love and acceptance. Join us if you want and need acceptance. We promote unconditional love, healing and well-being.

Anonymous asked: what are some blogs similar to yours that are active

There was this post awhile back where a few blogs were recommended to someone looking for the same thing:

Unfortunately, one of the blogs mentioned (siblingromance) is no longer there. Also, shipcestuous blog got deleted but you can find her WordPress blog here:

Some of those tumblrs focus on fandom and shipping but those who run the blogs are also supportive of real life consensual incestuous relationships.

Sorry that mine is not that active. There are very few blogs that are active regularly but there are forums out there for those who want to discuss these things more regularly. I’d recommend this one:

Regardless of the lack of blogs, you can definitely find others out there who are allies or consider starting a blog yourself as well.

Good luck!

Anonymous asked: hi, i was wondering if there’s anything wrong with dating your 4th cousin? And how to deal with family reactions?


There is nothing inherently wrong about dating or being in love with a relative, as long as it’s fully consensual. In many places in the world, first cousins can marry. In even more places, 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, 4th cousins, etc can marry.

I’m not the person to ask about more complicated things like advice on how to deal with family reactions. I have made little suggestions before but there are things others would be better suited to help you with.

So I would recommend you visit some of these sites where you can find communities of people that would be more knowledgeable about this topic:

Community for cousin couples:

Facebook group for cousin couples or allies:

Community for consanguinamory of all kinds, including cousins:

I really hope that helps you. 🙂

Queer community’s hypocrisy (personal vent)

My OTP, my mind, my rules.

pretty 2

I didn’t want to bother even writing a post about hypocrisy in the queer community because it’s so obvious that it doesn’t even need to be said. This topic isn’t even worth writing about. Antis are not morally superior. Antis are selfish-to-the-core and cowardly people. But I needed to vent just a tiny bit.

I am usually super careful who I open up to about my writing and my main character pairing, because I know better than to believe that everyone will get it. But this time I slipped in my judgment and thought that someone else who is trans might at least be neutral towards my preference, since I was trying to be supportive of their stuff (their trans stuff) but this person thought my reaching out to them was an invitation for them to go on a rant at me about how they are an anti and how they are against the “normalization” of incest.

And the worst part, they thought they could tell me that I need to change key details about my characters’ identities/relationship. I told them off in as calm a way as I could but it really shocked me that they of all people would think they have that right to tell others what they can or cannot feel or like (considering how they had been treated for their own creative expressions).

I’m not one of those people who will try to argue that cousins are not incestuous. They are in an ambiguous area because they are not immediate family but are still family. And I’m not even saying everyone should automatically be into the same things as me.

But when it comes to my OTP, no way in hell am I changing who they are for anyone. To do so would be to give up my principles as a creative person and also my beliefs about love and relationships and personal freedom.

What exactly would I gain by changing that core part of them? Fake fans, fake love, everything I hate most. My characters would no longer be themselves… they would be just another unrelated couple basking in privilege and making flimsy, half-hearted alliances with queer people, setting themselves up against the newest version of a demonized minority: incestuous couples.

No thanks. I will NEVER change who they were when they first came to me…

When it comes to art, there is such a thing as an ideal audience. That’s the audience you find when you are 100% authentic in your writing or your art. You don’t find that by being a wimp, a conformist. That prospective ideal is worth fighting for because that is the difference between conditional and unconditional love.

It’s not the “normalization” of consensual human incest people should be worried about. It’s the normalization of this level of mindless hypocrisy that should be a concern. You can’t move any minority’s rights forward while maintaining that it’s ok to leave people out, it’s ok to be intellectually dishonest, it’s ok to infantilize others because their preferences are different, and most of all… you can’t move anyone’s rights forward while maintaining this idea that a person’s body is not their own and that their identity is what society makes it.

No. I will not change a single thing about them because the problem is with the Anti. The anti is the one incapable of loving a being that is different. The anti is the one in denial about their own lack of understanding. The anti is the one that needs to change.

Anonymous submission (Q & A)

This was a submission by a woman in her 30s for this blog, answering some questions about her relationship with her first cousin. Thank you, anon, for sharing this!

What is your sexual orientation and gender identity?

I am a straight (cis) woman and he is a straight (cis) man.

What kind of relationship are you currently in?

I’m in a straight cousin/cousin relationship. We also have an age difference of over 10 years. He is the older one.

How did you meet your partner?

We did not grow up together. We maybe saw each other a few times but no real interaction or interest. The age difference was too much. He spent a lot of time away for years and we did not interact for decades.

What stage of your relationship are you in?

Our relationship is pretty new but very strong. We are committed to staying together.

How do you feel about your relationship dynamic?

It’s very happy, open, and communicative. We discuss our feelings very well and feel secure with each other.

Do you currently have or do you plan on having children with your partner? (biological or by adoption)

No, not at all and no plans to have children.

Is there anyone else like you who’s relationship you admire, that reminds you of your own?

Not really but then again, I know a lot of unhappy couples.

Do your friends and family know about your relationship? How do they feel about it?

No, our relationship is currently secret and we plan on keeping it that way. It’s not anyone else’s business.

Has anyone ever criticized you based on your personal life or your sexual/romantic feelings? How did you or your partner handle it?

See above. Secrecy = no criticism.

What would you tell those going through similar struggles as you in their love lives?

Follow your heart and be with the person you want to be with. There is nothing wrong with having a private relationship either. People may not accept your relationship but you shouldn’t make it your problem.
