Does INCEST strip the INNOCENCE of a CHILD?
That is the Question ….
The problem is that this information is rarely tracked by third world countries.
In developed nations, the case of sexual abuse, will always be naturally under reported.
In the case of consensual incest, the topic is still taboo, but due to the nature of consent, we have a better picture.
High Incest Activity Countries
That is a hard question to answer. Several countries share the spot for having the highest incest rate.
•Countries with the least amount civil liberties and individual rights for women and children will have the fewest checks in place to dissuade victimization by incestuous predators. In countries with regimes that women and children do not have a voice, are most likely to engage in non-consensual or cultural incest.
•Under the premise that those under the average age of consent is 14 world-wide; Western counseling agencies reports that around 78% of women and children (males and females) coming from the most repressive country regimes such as Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Chechnya have experienced on-going or initiative non-consensual incest.
•Africa as a continent is an enigma. There are not lots of information regarding incest in Africa. The other problems there are so vast, that incest flys below the radar. It can be assumed, that the statistics would be similar to those of the Middle East. No major Incest Community groups consider any country in Africa a destination to practice and engage with others who practice consensual incest.
•When you combine poverty with alcoholism, the pervasiveness of both consensual incest and violent based dramatically increases within any given society, culture, and country.
In the United States, while incest is not statistically high, certain regions suffer from quadruple the rate of incest; such as many of those from the poverty-alcoholism stricken region of the Appalachian Mountains and the swamps or backwoods of the Deep South.
It is so commonly known, that this has become part of American cultural fabric often referenced in literature, theater, movies, art, and music. following are a list of countries which suffers from the highest poverty-alcoholism rate in the world; were high levels of incest is plausible although, may or may not be backed by data.
Although the following countries may not be poor due to the extreme wealth of some of their major cities, the gap is evident by the percentage of poor in the country.
•◦Republic of Croatia
◦Bosnia and Herzegovina
◦Russian Federation (with the exception of Moscow and St. Petersburg)
