Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Though the tell-all documentary Mondo Cane was released in 1960, its influence continued to be felt into the 1980s. Filmed in 1988, Erotic Taboo takes its viewers on a very specialized world tour. The unctuous narrator describes various ethnocultural restrictions regarding sex. We are then treated to the spectacle of watching most of those taboos being broken, as graphically as possible. The film's 85-minute length forces the filmmakers to repeat themselves; you'll probably be satisfied at the halfway mark.
