Mistie Rebecca Atkinson, 32, the California woman arrested in April after being caught in a compromising position with her son, blames “genetic attraction” for why she felt compelled to track down the teenager on Facebook to have sex with him, reports the NYDailyNews.com.

Atkinson pleaded no contest to incest, oral copulation, lewd contact with a minor and distribution of lewd material to a minor. She was sentenced to 4 years and 8 months in prison.

“I don’t feel like I should have the charge of incest because there is something called genetic attraction that is a very powerful (phenomenon) that happens to 50 (percent) of people becoming reunited with a long-lost relative,” she wrote to the court.

She began sending the teen sexually explicit messages and nude photos last year. When relatives of the boy found out about the relationship, Atkinson was arrested in a hotel room. Yes, her son was with her.

Some psychologists confirm the veracity of genetic sexual attraction (GSA) and claim that biological family members who are separated for long periods of time risk becoming sexually attracted to each other when they reunite.

See an excerpt from the documentary, Incest: The Last Taboo:

 

The website, GeneticSexualAttraction.com, describes GSA as follows:

Genetic Sexual Attraction or GSA occurs between two adults who have been separated during the critical years of development and bonding and are reunited years later as adults. GSA begins with a fractured family where a parent/child or brother/sister do not bond as nature intended. When these ‘strangers’ finally meet, the brain struggles to associate each other as family. Instead, they become captivated with one another, sharing similar physical features, likes and dislikes.

As a result, the unexpected emotions and longing initiates GSA. It is experienced as a need to connect through physical, emotional and mental bonding; resulting in an immense struggle as the individuals try to integrate as family members.

It can be embarrassing, confusing, amazing, overwhelming, extremely frustrating, and perplexing as each individual experiencing genetic attraction is bewildered by the desire to bond intimately with their family member. GSA profoundly disrupts people’s’ lives and established families.

 

Weigh in, Clutchettes: Is GSA real? And, if so, does that make incest the last taboo?
