Something that is viewed as forbidden by society’s standards and therefore is rarely talked about openly. Some are less taboo then they were in the past and some are more then ever taboo. And while most have to do with sex, some taboos have to do with food, and others beliefs, and all of them will bring a conversation to a dead stop if you bring them up because these are all things most people do not what to talk about.
Example’s of modern day taboo’s: cannibalism; incest; pedophilia; necrophilia; bestiality; miscegenation; adultery; nudity; masturbation; homosexuality; bisexuality; anal sex; having a fetish;BDSM; pornography; rape; suicide; drug addiction; divorce; depression; death; AIDs; cancer; racism; eating dogs, cats, horses and other pets; eating insects such as weevils and maggots; drinking blood; using certain four letter words; menstruation; religion; one’s political views, and how much money you make.
Some taboos are meant to be broken, other's are best just left alone!
When Kira tried making the conversation more interesing by mentioning some taboo subjects, silence fell and the others quickly changed the subject to real estate.
