When Barbara Scott's (Kay Parker) husband leaves her, blaming her frigidity for destroying their marriage, she's left alone, without a source of income, and charged with taking care of their teenage son, Paul (Mike Ranger).

    5FINALLY on Blu-ray, and it's fantastic!
    By Racer Hex
    This is one of the best adult films ever made, particularly if you enjoy more mature-looking women. I've never seen better scenes with Kay Parker (and I have several of the old films released on Blu-ray now)... or anyone else that appears in this movie, really. I've never had trouble getting past the "taboo" of the "incest" theme - to me I think of Kay Parker as a naughty aunt, or step-mom at the closest... whatever, she's ridiculously hot even though she spends half the movie "resisting" the adult situations. And there are so many other great scenes with some really hot action and nice situations (e.g. girlfriend lets her girlfriend "borrow" her boyfriend, always loved that one). Two really hot "older" ladies but also some cute younger babes. There are times when I can get a bit of shall we say fatigue from looking at different kinds of pron and it's just not as stimulating, but these old 70s films (Taboo, Pretty Peaches, The Young Like It Hot, etc) are of such a higher quality in so many ways, they never fail to bring the passion right back.

    If I have one complaint (and there is only one) it's that the orgy scene gets a bit repetitive with looping some of the same shots over and over when there should have been plenty more good action to show us (I really liked the plump babe with the colorful garter belt on but we get a very short clip of her riding on top). But hey, that's not a fault of this Blu-ray release of course.

    As others have mentioned, the transfer is awesome (2K lets you see all the original film grain, little scratches, etc) and there are plenty of extras (particularly lots of commentary tracks). I've been waiting a long, long time for this release and it certainly didn't disappoint. Highly recommended!

    4Maybe not taboo, but certainly naughty.
    By asimov
    Filmed in the Golden Age of porn, Taboo deals with a titillating topic with good production values and good looking people. The women are of a mature age, which I find appealing, and have bodies that are naturally curvy have hair in all the right places. Why they think tattoos, piercings, and baldness are appealing, I don't understand. I don't buy many adult videos but this is one of the few in my meager collection
