Goofs

Kay Parker initially refers to Michael Morrison as "Jerry Morgan", then later calls him "Jerry Marvin" when talking to her son. Further on in the film, the realty office that Morrison works at is called "Morgan Realty". Therefore it appears the correct name is "Jerry Morgan". See more »

Fine feature...
6 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

"Taboo" was made in the golden age of the adult feature, when producers and directors cared about the product they released to the public, even the actors and actress' gave an attempt (if just an attempt) to deliver their lines with conviction.

This fine feature tells the story of Barbara Scott (played by the beautiful Kay Parker, a true legend of X-Rated cinema), an average suburban housewife who at the beginning of the film is dumped by her husband and who starts an affair with her teenaged son Paul. Juliet Anderson (of Aunt Peg fame)and Dorothy Le MAy also star.

"Taboo" is filled with highly erotic sex scenes right out of an Anais Ninn novel, which proves my point, a point that I've been trying to prove for years that true erotisism comes not only from the sex act shown but also the situation. Something that the current crop of pornographers have seem to have forgotten. Paul Thomas is the only director in recent years to harken back to the glory days. The days of John Holmes and Alex deRenzy... I'm as much of a fan of straight up sex as the next guy, I know that's were I contradict myself but... show me a little something. I know that a lot of the so called "hardcore porn fans" hate the Vivid company for not being hard enough, they would rather watch the likes of Max Steiener or Seymore Butts and that's fine for them, but I still believe that Vivid (and Wicked) is turning out the finest porn on the market today...

Talking strictly action, the hottest scene in "Taboo" is the second scene that feature Kay and Mike Ranger (who plays Paul).
