The story of Lot in the Old Testament book of Genesis presents the breaching of the taboo against incest and an element of eroticism. After the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot's daughters thought that they and their father were the only people left on earth to propagate the human race. Plying Lot with wine, they each slept with him, after which they bore him Moab and Ammon.
