Did You Know?

The big seduction scene between Kay Parker and Mike Ranger was shot in the bedroom of Steve Stevens, who's the son of director Kirdy Stevens.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Kay Parker initially refers to Milton Ingley 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 »

A Classic Original, 18 March 2004
Author: cheyenne_soule from USA

I have watched many movies over the years ranging from Disney to porn. With science-fiction and horror in between. But, very few are as memorable as Taboo. This story, in the porn genre, is a film that dares to step into a world beyond anything before. Sure, everyone has heard of incest. But, to see, now that is straight bold. Even though none of the actors or actresses are related, the story and the acting of Kay Parker, the mother who seduces her son out after her husband leaves, is convincing. And, even if this film were not about mom sleeping with her son, she was still a hottie for her time and all her movies are worth mentioning and that is why I suggest this movie to any porn-lovers out there.
