What If Luke And Leia Made Out In Empire Strikes Back Because Of Midi-Chlorians?
In one of the most sexually charged moments that isn't the scene with the Tauntaun, The Empire Strikes Back sees Luke and Leia chomping down on each other's face like two sarlaccs (sorry, sarlacci) fighting over a single spaghetti strand. And then it later turns out they're brother and sister -- but you already knew this, because it's one of the most unintentionally creepy moments in movie history, and one of the few things that the Star Wars series doesn't seem too keen on over-explaining.

We've looked at it, however, and we think we've got a solid answer: It was the freaking midi-chlorians.
Luke and Leia are both Force users, and thus, both have those space microbes called midi-chlorians swimming around in their bloodstreams. From an evolutionary perspective, it'd be make sense for midi-chlorians to drive their owners to ferociously bang other Force-havers in order to go critical mass and create the Jedi Ubermensch. With normal Jedi, this isn't a problem ... although it does go some way toward explaining why the Jedi don't allow for romantic relationships. They're not being puritans; they simply don't want people doing the nasty all over the Jedi Temple.
