"Sexual Relations With a Family Member." From the Old French "inceste" = "incest," in turn derived from the Latin "incestus" = "unchastity, incest." The Latin root is composed of "in" = "un" and "caste" = "chaste," literally translating as "unchaste."
(IN·cest). Sexual activity between a male and female of such close kinship that customs or laws forbid them to engage in coitus with each other or for them to enter into a legal marriage contract with each other.

Sexual abuse occurring within the family, most often perpetrated by a father, stepfather, grandfather, uncle, brother, adult son, or other male in a position of family trust; but it may also be perpetrated by a female relative. As with sexual abuse, incest is accomplished by physical force or by coercion. Incest takes on the added psychological dimension of betrayal by a family member who is supposed to care for and protect the child (NGO Working Group on Violence Against Women, 2004). The Crimes Act 1961 defines incest as sexual connection between two people whose relationship is that of parent and child, siblings, half-siblings, or grandparent and grandchild; and the person charged knows of the relationship. Items linked to this NZFVC Topic Area aim to cover all of the above mentioned aspects of incest.
Any overtly sexual act between people who are closely related or who perceive themselves as being closely related (as in relationship between in-laws, stepsiblings and stepparents, and close family friends). In addition to physical sexual contact this can include voyeurism, masturbation in front of the child, suggestive talk, provocative photography, exposing oneself to the child, etc. Incest results from a breakdown in the family and creates emotional isolation, stress, confusion about family roles and boundaries, guilt, and a host of other symptoms.
Sexual activities between a child and a relative, defined fairly broadly as a parent, stepparent, parent's live-in partner or lover, foster parent, sibling, cousin, uncle, aunt, or grandparent (McAnulty & Burnette, 2001)
Incest is sexual activity between close family members. Incest is considered taboo, and forbidden (fully or slightly) in the majority of current cultures. The precise meaning of the word varies widely, because different cultures have differing notions of "sexual activity" and "close family member".
