The majority of countries in the UK have outlawed sexual relations between family members except for the Republic of Ireland. For a man, the punishment may be up to life and for the female a punishment less severe.

Consensual incest is legal in Russia, Spain, Portugal and Italy. However, in Italy if the situation becomes a public scandal then it becomes punishable with 2-8 years in jail. In terms of France, Luxembourg and Belgium, it is not necessary legal but there are no laws that prohibit the act.
