Carnal intercourse with relatives, of blood or affinity, whom the Church forbids one to marry. The circumstance of relationship adds a special malice to the sin of impurity because, by committing this sin with a relative, one sins also against the virtue of piety which prescribes due reverence towards those who are closely related.
