National Geographic Channel’s Taboo

In order to gain viewers, the first four or five episodes of this program had to do with sexual peccadillos (you know weirdos who get turned on by balloons, and so on), but I knew the show hit a creative snag during the segment about “purity balls” on the episode about Teenage Sexuality. For those of you who don”t know, a “purity ball” is a party where a bunch of teens get together and promise not to have sex until they’re married. I fail to see what’s Taboo about that. Kids have been lying to their parents since the start of time.
