Taboo (1980)

Taboo (1980)

“I’ve got the best looking mommy on the block.”

Synopsis:
A sexually unsatisfied single mom (Kay Parker) seduces her college-age son (Mike Ranger), who is more than willing to reciprocate.

Genres:

  • Adult Films
  • Incest and Incestuous Undertones
  • Sexual Liberation
  • Single Mothers

Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, it’s hard to get too upset over the “taboo” broken in this notorious adult film, given that the two lead actors (one brunette, one blond) look nothing alike. Indeed, Taboo is ultimately more interesting as the story of a divorced woman’s sexual liberation than as a titillating exploitation film. Most distressing is watching Parker suffer through a series of unsatisfying dates and obnoxious come-ons by men her own age.

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • A refreshingly realistic-looking female lead

Must See?
No. While it’s notorious in adult film lore, film fanatics don’t necessarily need to see it.
