Porn pioneer Kirdy Stevens and his wife/collaborator Helene Terrie were an adult movie power team. Stevens started his long career in the early 1960s making softcore loops for peepshows, moved on to producing simulated sex acts through mail order and finally by the late '60s, he was shooting silent hardcore flicks. After getting into legal trouble and being forced out of porn and into "legit" movies for a few years, Stevens returned in the mid-'70s after the theatrical success of Deep Throat with his first feature film Lollipop Palace. But it wasn't for a couple of years that he and Terrie would hit it big with their highly controversial but insanely sensual Taboo starring the MILF-iest MILF who has ever MILF-ed, Kay Parker.

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). Feeling vulnerable, she turns to her friend Gina (Juliet Anderson) who opens Barbara’s eyes to the secret world of suburban swingers. But as erotic tension grows, Barbara begins to fantasize about her handsome son…
Kirdy Stevens is known for his insistence on high production values and taking a year or so to shoot one movie, which is nearly unheard of in the adult film industry. He expected a lot from his larger than average crew and shot using the best 35mm cameras. Maybe that's why Taboo became one of the highest grossing adult films of all time, even out pacing some of the mainstream movies that were released the same year. It was a monster of a movie, spawning more than twenty sequels, of which Stevens and/or Terrie only had a hand up to Taboo VII: The Wild and the Innocent. For years we as fans have wanted a beautiful, legit release of this notorious classic and finally we have one thanks to Vinegar Syndrome.

First off, Kay Parker is one of the sexiest women I have ever seen. She is arousing,  has gorgeous long legs and perfectly hanging, large natural b00bs. That casting could not have been better. And the lead up to the incestual pay-off is incredibly intense. Parker's character wants no part in sex only to be thrown into these highly sexual situations like a swinger's party that turns into a fantastic orgy scene that starts with a load-blowing-worthy circular oral train. While she is being offended yet turned on by these things, her son is kissing her a little too long, watching her shower and rub lotion on her giant au naturale tits and banging the shit out of his slutty blonde girlfriend after getting turned on by his mom.

About two-thirds into the movie, we finally get THE scene; mom comes home, extremely sexually frustrated, sees her son lying naked and asleep and decides to give in to the temptation. That scene is one of the most passionate and sexy things I have ever seen in any kind of movie. The quivering anticipation of this forbidden act culminates into a mind-blowing, ball-draining climax between two people who have a deep love for one another on so many levels. Outside of the world of fantasy, this would be completely unacceptable, but in this world where your deepest, darkest fantasies are okay, this depraved, wanton act is all about intimacy and pleasure. To see this carnal classic restored with such care by Vinegar Syndrome is nothing short of amazing.

Side note: the best line of dialogue comes from the mom's nymphomaniac friend as she hears mom screaming while she is on the phone with her, "What's going on over there? Is he raping you?" She starts getting excited until she realizes she isn't being assaulted. The friend also starts rubbing her pussy when mom tells of her indiscretions with her son. "You committed incest with your son?" *rubrubrub*
