This isn't that uncommon. If they were not together when he was growing up they miss that bonding that builds familiarity. Then, when they did get together, the emotions can get mixed up and what should feel as love between mother and son becomes sexual because of that lack of bonding/familiarity.
There was a case in England where a father and daughter were reunited. She was given up for adoption by the mother and the father never had contact with her until she tracked him down. They were both adults when they met and it started off innocently. But soon after meeting they 'fell in love' and started a relationship. They were both charged with incest. A psychiatrist that was interviewed described that lack of bonding as a contributing factor. It's that bonding that makes us say 'ewwwww' when we read about this. Most of us can't empathize because we've had some type of bonding.
It would be interesting to find out what level of contact these two had when he was younger. Regardless, she is messed up.
This. It's just an extension of love without the social barriers that people erect with their family..
There are tons of examples of incest in tribes without "modern" societies (i.e. in the amazon). There are untold examples of incest in the animal kingdom.
The only reason you think it's wrong is your were brought up to think it's wrong :\
