Summary/Abstract: If the sociologists were to briefly define condition of society for the last five-six decades, then the best available formula for them would be “crisis after crisis”. Painful turmoil has been produced in politics, economy, army, administration, morals, family, etc., that is to say both in the public and private area. It is interesting that these areas are overlapping post-modernity period and that we do not associate this age to its successes but to different forms of crisis. This study is therefore centred on the analysis of incest, a critical and private fact with enormous social effects, which humankind knew how to properly manage in post-modern ages since it applied various laws to explicitly forbidden it. A decrease of the social control over the incest along with a dramatic increase of the incest offenders is being currently reported. The next pages therefore will not only report the incest to the family crisis and identify the generic meanings of this fact, but it will also numerically estimate the incest offenders in Romania, delimitate categories of victims and aggressors and especially consider the opportunity / inopportunity of changing the Romanian laws towards not criminalizing non-aggressive incest.
