Complete review published on 09.11.2018
The Tabu Tales makes it business supplying its customers with, well, taboo tales. And since the folks behind Digital Sin are at the helm, it should come as no surprise that they're damn good at it, too. In addition to an exclusive, HD collection of over 5,000 scenes, a roster of over 1,000 of the "hottest stars," and unlimited downloading and streaming, they also promise would-be members access to 20 bonus sites. Sites so good, in fact, that they claim you'll "never need to so sign up for another porn site again!" So, let's see if they can live up to all that hype, eh?

I was impressed to find that, once logged in, I was greeted by a members' area that was not only easy on the eyes, but quite easy to navigate, too. All of the basics are taken care of on the menu atop the page, and just below and to the right are plenty of filters which allow the user to fine-tune the browsing experience. For instance, updates can be organized by date, popularity, or name. But if you're in the mood for something really specific, you can take it a step further, browsing by porn star, DVD title, or — my personal favorite favorite — by harnessing a list of 100 different niches. These latter, more in-depth, options are particularly handy when browsing the network as a whole, but they're still quite nice when simply browsing the The Tabu Tales content.
This is, in part, due to the fact the fact that, as I write this, there's an impressive 90 DVDs and 410 scenes on the site, dating all the way back to early 2012. And those advanced navigational tools will probably be quite necessary if they stick to their current update schedule, which has new scenes being as often as 6 times per month.
What's the content like? Well, to be honest, I wasn't quite sure what was in store for me after viewing the tour page. I knew that "tabu" was, no doubt, a variant on the spelling of the word "taboo," and with that mind, I expected edgy themes. I have to admit, though, that I was a bit taken aback when I realized the bulk of their content is incest themed. Talk about living up to your moniker . . . . Not that I'm complaining. Still, though, I think they're doing themselves a disservice not to more clearly advertise this fact, as incest porn is a hot commodity. That having been said, this is probably the highest quality porn of the genre since the early entries of the Taboo series. So, if you want top of the line incest material, look no further.
The production values on these scenes are actually on par — if not better — with what you'd find on a lot of those sitcoms and soaps currently polluting the airwaves, and so far as porno standards go, the dialogue and plots aren't too shabby, either. I actually felt a bit nostalgic watching these, which is probably due to the fact I haven't watched much high-end porno with a plot in nearly 20 years. And it was a thing of the past then, too.
So far as the incest theme goes, I think I should be clear on the fact that, for the most part, these people aren't supposed to be blood related. It seems the bulk of these scenes instead focus on step relatives. Why they they didn't go all out on content that is fiction is beyond me, but I can definitely understand some of the creative reasons behind branching out into step siblings. The My Black Brother
DVDs being a prime example . . . .
One of my personal favorites was a juicy father-daughter encounter starring Jodi Taylor and Evan Stone. While having "the talk" with his daughter, Evan realizes that his little girl already knows a thing or two — perhaps even more than he does. And as chance would have it, they share some of the same turn ons, too. To make a long story short, what starts as an awkward, stilted discussion somehow morphs into a full-fledged fuck-fest, complete with a cream-pie. Is that fucked up or what? I mean, it's bad enough he's fucking his own daughter, but he's gotta cum inside of her as well? My man!
As I mentioned earlier, the production values are through the roof. That wouldn't mean much, though, if these videos didn't feature nice specs. Well, as it turns out, they've got playback quality to match all that hard work. First off, it should be noted that every scene is available in 8 different formats and resolutions, including two mobile files, and two high-def files. They also were good enough to include a few mid-range files for those with less than stellar Internet connections, too.
Of course, the pièce de résistance is the 720p and 1080p HD files, the latter of which, by the way, is available in both the FLV and MPEG-4 formats. Oh, and I think it's also worth a mention that download speeds are quite fast, averaging out at 2.5 megs-per-second.
To be frank, the photo galleries aren't this site's strongest point. Admittedly, they do feature a nice resolution size(in fact, 1,920 × 1,280 pixels on the latest entries), and they are well lit and vibrant looking, but — unlike their video brethren — they're lacking in the options department. I mean, the videos were available in 7 different formats/resolutions. With the photos our only choice is low res screen caps or high-res photos.
And while it they were good enough to let us download galleries in their entirety compressed in a ZIP file, they didn't include a slideshow. Honestly, I don't mind this at all. But this site is so darn good, I had to find something to complain about. So, if it seems like I'm being a bit hard on these still images, it's simply due to the fact that just about every other area of the site is bordering on perfection.
On a more serious note, I have to wonder about the exclusivity of this content. Admittedly, I can I say I've never seen any of these scenes anywhere else on the web. But the fact remains that these are taken from DVDs, which makes me wonder exactly how exclusive this content is. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, though, and assume that, DVD sales aside, they're being honest when they say that this content is 100% exclusive.
One thing that cannot be disputed, however, is the fact that membership here does, in fact, include access to a whole gaggle of filthy bonus sites. My personal favorites were Parody Pass
and Stretched out Snatch
!, but I can see how others might be more drawn to more tame affairs like The Romance Series
and Ashlyn Brooke
's official site.
What can I say? So far as incest porn goes, surely The Tabu Tales is king of the hill. At least in terms of raw quality and production values, that much is undeniable. So, if watching siblings — sometimes even fathers and daughters and mother's and sons — committing the most unholy of acts is your thing, look no further. Admittedly, I'd prefer if they go all out and ditch the whole step relative angle, but I made peace with the fact I was going to hell a long, long time ago. Either way, I wholeheartedly recommend this site to all of my fellow sinners. Hell, even if incest isn't your favorite thing, there's plenty of other taboo activities to choose from amongst those 20 New Sensations bonus sites. Killer stuff.
