I mean, I don't have any male cousins that I'm close to, so maybe I'm less bothered by it because I'm thinking hypothetically rather than imagining any specific person.
Realistically, I think eventually we'd get lonely and horny and I could see it happening.
Also, the view that having sex with your cousin is taboo is a cultural thing. We see it as wrong in western culture, but in some other cultures, it's seen as normal and fine.
Also, regardless of how common genetic abnormalities are in consanguineous relationships, I would try to avoid getting pregnant anyway (i. e. use the pull-out method), since I wouldn't want to risk dying in child birth.2
