Consanguineous ships

Posting this info here for reference.

Some of the most popular non-canon consanguineous ships on TV seem to be:

  • Sam/Dean – Supernatural
  • Stefan/Damon – The Vampire Diaries
  • Sherlock/Mycroft – BBC Sherlock
  • Harry Potter (several different ships)

And the most popular canon ship is obviously Jaime/Cersei from Game of Thrones.

Some TV shows with at least “not-that-bad” portrayals of consanguinamory are:

  • Taboo
  • Game of Thrones
  • The Borgias
  • Another Period
  • Flesh and Bone
  • Rome
  • Hollyoaks
  • Emmerdale
  • Brookside
  • Bates Motel
  • Hemlock Grove
  • Banshee
  • Boardwalk Empire
  • The White Queen

Finally, there’s this Wiki page where many incestuous relationships in the media are covered.

Favorite consanguinamory film


From Beginning to End

It’s the most positive portrayal that I’ve seen of consanguinamory, happy ending included, and also the one I can personally relate to the most; two brothers who fall in love with each other and are accepted by their family and society. Someday this will stop being only fiction. Someday this will happen in real life, and people will look back and think how wrong they were to deny love.

Consanguinamory in Spanish TV series

I’d like to recommend three shows that have incestuous themes and relationships:


Águila Roja (Red Eagle): Brother/Sister and Aunt/Nephew.

[Ending Spoilers] Irene kills herself soon after she finds out that she’s been sleeping with her blood brother, Hernan. Her nephew, Hernan’s son Nuño, who she was in love and had an affair with, never finds out about their blood relationship. Hernan and Nuño survive.


Nissaga de poder (Lineage of power): Brother/Sister.

[Ending Spoilers] It ends in suicide as well, but at least both characters, Eulalia and Mateu, die together and in love. They also had a son together, Eduard. It’s the relatively most positive portrayal of consanguinamory out of these.


Lo que escondian sus ojos (What her eyes were hiding): Half-Brother/Sister. Based on a true story, real-life incest.

[Ending Spoilers] Yet another suicide after the reveal of their blood relationship. This time only attempted however, because the brother, Rolo, talks his sister Carmen down from jumping off a cliff. Carmen locks herself into a convent for the following years. This happened in real life too.
