When You Have the Hots for Your Familia

The saying los primos se esprimen has taken on an entirely new meaning!

There’s a Spanish saying that goes “los primos se esprimen,” meaning it’s totally okay to cop a feel and hit on your cousin. All together now — eeeew!

Ew

A lot of Latinos believe this. (I’m looking at you, my fellow Dominicanos.) When visiting the Dominican Republic I’ve been hit on by many cousins. They slide on over, offer me a cold Presidente, tell me how bella I am (flattery will get you everywhere), ask about my relationship status and, whether I’m single or not, they drop a pick up line. They’re on me as if I were a gringa con dinero. Homie (or in this case, primo) I don’t live in the Upper East Side with The Jeffersons and I am NOT desperate enough to get with a family member. (At least not yet.)

Sounds like a reasonable response, right? No one in their right mind would be attracted to their own blood, right? WRONG. Turns out dating a relative is more common than we think. You can thank Genetic Sexual Attraction for that.

Genetic Sexual Attraction is an uncontrollable condition in which blood relatives have the hots for each other. Those that experience GSA feel a powerful attraction toward their parents, kids, siblings and first and second cousins when they meet for the first time. So you won’t fall in love with the brother you shared empanadas with since childhood; it’s more like your long-lost hermano.

One story in particular is giving everyone the heebie jeebies. Kim West, 51, gave her son, Ben Ford, now 32, for adoption. After meeting for the first time in 2013, they fell in love and Ben even left his wife for his own mother! They are now trying to have a baby. And you can imagine how that mess will turn out.

All together now, eeeew! Oh, and WHAT THE FUCK.
