Now I understand why the words sadism and sadist are divided from his name! Their daughter, a younger and prettier version of themselves, will steal their husbands or boyfriends affections from them.
I dont necessarily mean romantic affections either, wives could fear the husband will spend more time with the daughter or show her more attention and forget about the wife. So they feel a sense of security. In the book, it is discussed that some cultures Incest happens on some level, it is expected and accepted. It happens enough among humans there is even a name for it, Genetic Sexual Attraction.
To a small degree, GSA is in all of us bred from nurture. The old adage of a girl looks to her father for qualities in her future husband, and boys look to their mothers for qualities they want in a future bride. I have even seen a commercial where a father takes his 4or 5 year old daughter on a date to show her what to expect of men when she is allowed to date.
The author even uses the story of Lot from the Bible as a justification for his actions. I find this ironic because he is against religion and the Bible in general, so why would he use this as a right to have sex with his daughter? Aside form being stupid, it is quite genius because the character knows it is the only way they will understand, as well as point out the hypocritical use of the Bible.
He kept Eugenie locked away from the world and other men, to keep her away from any other choice but him. It would have been different if she were around other people and had a chance to fall for someone else.
It would be no less shocking than how things actually pan out in the book. Another theme in this book is that married couples are unhappy. Recommend: if you have an open mind and not going to criticize it at every turn, then yes.
