‘One day, your mother and your partner are trapped together in a burning forest. Your sense of morality compels you to save your mother first, and even your partner, while melting, calls to you gently, “Don’t worry, I am feeling a little hot. Save your mother!”

At this moment, how desperately you wish that morality be damned; suppressing your own desires, you would exclaim to your mother, “You will wait!” And carrying your partner, you would burst through the forest without looking back.

You think, if your mother is saved, you will continue paying the monthly family tribute. But if your partner is saved, and if the burns are not too serious, you will very soon resume your sex life.

You think further, in a world without morals, you would not need to suppress your desire to not pay the family tribute. Would you still suppress desires for incest?

Standing before the burning blaze, you know from deep inside, that neither of them deserves to be saved by you.’
