* '''To "other" it.''' Incest makes most people uncomfortable. And while there are a sizable number of only children, most people do have siblings themselves. Thinking about incest and siblings is ''weird''. Making incest in a story about twins is a way to distance people from that, make it "other". It even justifies it in a way--they're not normal siblings, they're ''twins'', and [[SarcasmMode we all know twins are different and strange]].

* '''Making it non-serious.''' Twincest is taken seriously on occasion, but much more often it's funny or outlandish. Making incest bizarre and unrealistic is another way to lessen the taboos surrounding it.

* ''Series/Glee'': Heavily lampshaded and subverted with Mason and Madison [=McCarthy=]. Apparently the Cheerios have had to tell them that ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' is not a good example for a relationship, and during the "Home" performance in "Homecoming", Mason sings the line "Boy I love my ma and pa / Not the way that I do love you". Kitty explicitly compares them to [[Series/GameOfThrones Jaime and Cersei Lannister]].

But Madison's ClingyJealousGirl behavior is actually because she's always been a ParentalSubstitute to her brother, since their actual parents are always out performing rather than being parents. They work it out, and she backs off.

MindLinkMates and TwinTelepathy definitely have parallels. If you believe in OneTrueLove, soulmates being born together does make a certain kind of sense. A common twist is that the twins in question believe they're soulmates, and everyone else has a NoJustNoReaction.

NoJustNoReaction.

Twincest differs from TwinThreesomeFantasy in that in Twincest, it's all about twins screwing ''each other'', while in a TwinThreesomeFantasy, the focus is on the third, non-twin party. Can overlap if the twins are interested in both each other ''and'' the third party.



Can overlap with a TwinThreesomeFantasy.

He allows her to sleep in a separate bed, and claims that while he knows his [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} teammates]] think that he's a freak, he has no actual desire to have sex with his sister.

* ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres'' plays this trope quite creepily and mixes it with RapeAsDrama. Also averted, in that the actual twins, Aya and Aki, care for each other deeply but don't have twincesty feelings for each other; they are, however, possessed by their ancestors, Shisou and Ceres, who were husband and wife.

* It took twelve seasons, but ''[[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit SVU]]'' finally went there in the episode "Bombshell": [[spoiler:guest-star Rose [=McGowan=] played a con artist/swinger who was swindling people with her twin brother--and also sleeping with him because they "share a soul."]] Elliot even calls the trope by name.

There are several main reasons an author might choose to make their incestuous characters twins:
*'''To "other" it.''' Incest makes most people uncomfortable. And while there are a sizable number of only children, most people do have siblings themselves.

It even justifies it in a way--they're not normal siblings, they're ''twins'', and [[SarcasmMode we all know twins are different and strange]].
*'''Removing any age difference.''' Making them twins also serves the very practical and necessary function of removing the age difference and making them peers. And this is key for incest. Elder siblings are often patronizing or bossy at best, and [[BigBrotherBully mean]] at worst. Younger siblings are immature and childish at best, and [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling annoying brats]] at worst. For siblings to fall for each other, they need to be peers.
*'''Making it non-serious.''' Twincest is taken seriously on occasion, but much more often it's funny or outlandish. Making incest bizarre and unrealistic is another way to lessen the taboos surrounding it.



* From ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'' and it's obscure FanDom, there's this [[FanFic/InfiniteStratosSacredTwins (un)holy fic]].

[[spoiler:The girl in question is TheDragon, M (Orimura Madoka), chosen specifically as OCStandIn in an AlternateUniverseFic. [[FreudianExcuse She has]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast a decent reason though]]]]. It's CrazyEnoughToWork.

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'', when Snake and Liquid are having their final fight, if Snake can't shake liquid off, Liquid will kiss Snake's cheek. However, at the time, Liquid is possessing the body of Revolver Ocelot so YMMV on the level of twincest. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the fact it's [[spoiler: really just Revolver Ocelot impersonating Liquid]]. The matter is further complicated considering Ocelot had a crush on Snake's identical clone "father", Big boss, which adds LoveFatherLoveSon into the whole mix. The whole thing can be rather...confusing. Then again, it wouldn't be Metal Gear Solid if it wasn't.

* Per usual [[BrotherSisterIncest/FireEmblem tradition]], ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' doesn't exempt from this in the case of the seventh series, ''The Sacred Stones''. Doesn't go with the usual route (their ending put them in the position of PlatonicLifePartners), but the plot, other characters' reactions, and even [[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung symbolism]] all point to twincest vibe between co-protagonists [[HalfIdenticalTwins Ephraim and Eirika]].

A common twist, in this and in BrotherSisterIncest in general, is for a couple to fall in love, only to find out later that they were SeparatedAtBirth. (See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_sexual_attraction genetic sexual attraction]].) How far their relationship goes before they discover this generally depends on whether the plotline is supposed to be humorous or tragic.

However, there have been fanfics in the past, and some fandom- in forums, and during chapter reviews, who toy with the idea, being that the two of them are constantly together, and they say each other's names in ever breath. It's canon that the word Ginkaku has said most in his entire life is his brother's name. And Kinkaku, while normally stoic and composed, manga-wise, flies into rage whenever his brother is seriously harmed. It also appears they stayed together their entire lives, and neither of them ever got married, or had any children. So there's room to toy with the twincest idea.And a few od the fandom has.

* In Creator/BernardoBertolucci's ''Film/TheDreamers'', an American student befriends a [[GayParee Parisian]] brother and sister. They claim to have been been born connected at the shoulder, even though that can't happen with fraternal twins. It becomes more and more apparent that there is something very... [[{{squick}} odd]] about the siblings' relationship, but our American [[TwinThreesomeFantasy doesn't really seem to mind]]. Everything's fine until someone [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_1968 puts a brick through the window.]]

** Cersei and Jaime Lannister. An unusual example of an incestuous relationship in serious fiction, as their affection for each other is depicted as genuine, unforced by either partner, long-term, and stable. (That affection is now rapidly waning, however.) [[spoiler:Jaime is revealed to be true father of Queen Cersei's children, thus making them false heirs to the throne. This eventually causes civil war to break out, and the situations it puts Cersei and Jaime into gradually begin to force them apart.]] It only gets worse when it's revealed that they were into each other even as little children -- a servant walked in on them doing something sexual when they weren't even ten years old. In Cersei's mind, the bond goes back to their ''birth'', seeing as the two shared a womb and Jaime came out holding onto Cersei. There is also plenty of implications that the narcissistic Cersei sees their relationship as the closest she can get to ScrewYourself.
** The Fowler twins (Jeyne and Jennelyn) of Dorne at one point had a TwinThreesomeFantasy [[LesYay with Nymeria Sand]]. No one in Dorne seemed that upset by it, though they were disgusted at the Lannister incest. (There are three possible reasons for this: that Jeyne and Jennelyn only slept with Nym and not each other; that homosexual incest is seen as not as bad as heterosexual incest; or that the Dornish were really disgusted at the fact that Jaime and Cersei [[spoiler:had kids together]]).

* ''Literature/ChildrenOfDune'' has some pretty heavy overtones about Leto II and Ghanima's relationship at times. From Leto II's own mouth: "Let us pass puberty living in the same house, and all your taboos will be as a red rag waved in the face of a Sandworm." Perhaps mercifully, he [[spoiler:undergoes transformation into a sandworm-like creature prior to puberty, thus removing this pairing from consideration.]]\\\
... Of course, that doesn't stop him from marrying her later. But both of them are in complete agreement about the fact that there will be no weirdo hanky-panky going on, and that all her children will be bastards sired by a [[FeudingFamilies Corrino]] survivor, specifically the [[spoiler:direct descendant of the emperor Leto's father deposed]]. (Though ''they're'' in love anyway, so, [[EarnYourHappyEnding good for them]].)\\\

* ''InDeath'': Rudy and Piper Hoffman from ''Holiday In Death'' are brother and sister, twins, and... have at a least a sexual relationship with one another. Rudy has admitted that they have tried not to act on the attraction between them and be with other people, but they were miserable. Miserable because they are attracted only to each other. Hoo boy.

* In the ''Literature/ArcanaChronicles'' series by Kresley Cole, the Lovers card is represented by brother and sister twins. They explicitly...yeah.

** In "Who Got Dee Pregnant," the gang (minus Dee) think that Dennis was the one who had sex with Dee at the Halloween party (due to Dennis switching costumes with Charlie and Dee with the girl Dennis was trying to hook up with). Dennis is throwing up when they confront Dee, with them telling her she has to go to Mexico to get an abortion- which she states none of them are the father and although she pulled Dennis into the back room, they didn't have sex.

** The story goes that the song was originally a demo done by the Veronicas; when they couldn't fit it into their lineup, they handed it over to t.A.T.u. Which is not to say that the Veronicas are not twincesty as hell -- see their propensity for taking ridiculously inappropriate-for-sisters pictures. Seriously.
