A woman who lives at home with 400 pigs. A 15-year-old in rehab for playing video games. A grown man who enjoys dressing up as a baby. A criminal so in love, he gets married over a radio show. And a man who would like to have sex with his car. To some people, practices like these reflect deeply held beliefs or deliberate lifestyle choices. But to others, they may seem grotesque, unhealthy or...Taboo.
National Geographic's popular series takes viewers on a journey beyond their comfort zones and across cultural borders to explore addictions and lifestyles that are acceptable in some cultures but forbidden, illegal or reviled in others. Each episode examines one topic from a variety of cultures and perspectives, often venturing into closed worlds rarely seen. This season of Taboo moves beyond the jungle and extreme practices to reveal the various obsessions of people around the world and here at home, including addiction, hoarding and living fantasy lives.
Episodes include: Beauty, Fantasy Lives, Addiction, Hoarder, Prison Love, Forbidden Love
