(Newser) – It's taboo and generally creepy, but sometimes—under the right cinematic circumstances and with the knowledge that nobody's actually related—incest can be, well, hot. Willa Paskin of New York rounds up fictional couples who have real chemistry:

  • Cathy and Chris Dollanganger, Flowers in the Attic: "Nothing can stop the teenage sex drive, not even arsenic poisoning."

  • Buster and Lucille Bluth, Arrested Development: "Perhaps more co-dependent than flat-out incestuous."
  • Luke and Leia, Star Wars: "Leia kissed him, but mostly because she was trying to make Han Solo jealous (who can blame her?)"
  • Norman Bates and Mother, Psycho: "This is a very unhealthy, disturbing, corpse-ridden relationship."
