Taboo: MatingHow far would you go in the name of love? Would you drink your partner's blood to secure your bond? Or carve their hand print into your flesh to show your devotion?

Could you marry someone behind bars, knowing you may never be able to be together? Or risk your life to steal another man's wife?

Delve into rituals, ancient and modern, used to bond one human to another and uncover the extremes of human passion and devotion.

The desire to find a mate is one of humanity's fundamental instincts, but what happens to men and women when their love is taboo?

Taboo 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 even reviled in others.

Mitt and I don't believe in such disrespect for the holy union of man and wives. If we did, we would not live on the heaven planet of coelop after death.

Jesus mother****ing christ. I've got a strong stomach and have seen lots of gore but the sight of that bulldyke sucking the blood straight out of her girlfriend's vein made me wanna hurl.

Why doesn't Vincent just wait for her period? It would be a lot more blood and it wouldn't cause her any pain.

This made me almost throw up. It might sound disgusting to us, but to them it's perfectly normal. Just to show that you can't judge a book by it's cover, you have no idea who they are in their private time.

I once saw a lady in the cafe with "property of x" tatooed on her neck and you know what? I just thought what a fckn id**t! Don't you know that life moves on. She may have been a prostitute and that was her identifier. I don't know!

Silly girl

This made me so uncomfortable, my stomach turned upside down. >.< This video should be age rated ~

SO, This video shows how f--ked up this world can be. we can't really judge those people and I respect their culture and beliefs. BUT what was I thinking throughout this video is THAT is considered to be weird for the most of us, the whole “carving your lovers hand print into your flesh to show your devotion” is not convincing, if that girl really loved him and cared for him, SHE WOULDN'T WANT HIM TO BE IN PAIN. Not emotionally or physically, unless if pain is pleasure for them – (finding pleasure through pain) like sadomasochism.

The “Sucking Blood” either these people are just wannabe’s or they are mentally illed/damaged because a humans body CAN NOT crave for others blood. Its all in their minds, an illusion, that they need it to survive or wanting to be part of each others and they connect thru blood, its just like the idea of literally EATING another person because you want him to be part of you. It's perfectly natural and normal want to become part of the other and connect cuz you deeply love that person and you do that connection by having sex, physical contact and also emotional not “eating” Him/her to become one. That’s stuuupid and sickkk..
I read about a girl who drinks her blood, then the blood that comes out of her body as the monthly period and she place her tampons or cottax/pads in the freezer so she could suck on them later on then she started adding her blood into the food she cooks for her boyfriend. Yeah.. Pretty messed up.

And about women who loves to marry criminals I think they are just aroused by the fact that he killed others? and that why she wants him. Its not love if she wants him only cuz he’s a criminal its more like lust, you know?

ALL THAT kind of lifestyle is a taboo. MY OPINION! Anyway It’s their life's, they have every right to do what they want it.

When you don't have to worry about your nexxt meal you ascend to this craziness. I am glad I will never rise to that level. I'm not even sure if its to rise or fall.

Man, it must be a real damn bore to be someone like those of you talking so much sh*t. Why don't you crawl back under the rock from whence you came? That's a dear.

I would like to see if these people are still doing this when they are 60 and 70 years old. Its a fad and will phase out and they will be left with gross scars and sicko stories they can pass onto their grandchildren.

Kinky is when you use a feather. Sick is when you use the whole chicken. These are 'whole chicken' kind of people.

Firstly, the people who went on this show chose to advertise what they do. They aren't people quietly doing their own thing in their own bedroom. They put themselves out there to be judged, so get off your philosophical high-horses about the opinions expressed. They did the show. I would suspect that the reason they went on the show was either they are an exhibitionist, or they are attempting to convince the rest of society that they are just people too, and not 'weirdos'.

So it's only blood. What happens, as over time the 'arousal' of sharing only blood losses its potency?
Armin Meiwes went down that exact line of logic. He was that German who ate another guy. Apparently, they were both consenting adults, same thinking, one wanted to literally become part of the other. So is that ok? To kill and eat someone, even if both are fine with it.
Where is the line drawn?

To me, that line is crossed when your thinking goes into wanting to consume or be consumed. I don't believe that is rational, healthy thinking. That has crossed the line into mental illness, some love/need induced psychosis. I don't know where some of you people live but it must be some place very, very different to my world if you somehow think that 'eating' part of your partner is normal or acceptable behaviour, and not weird. It's natural and normal to feel deeply in love with another person. It is not normal to literally want to consume, or be consumed by someone you love.

So, my opinion, like it or not, is that they have some serious emotional/mental issues that has led them into some very weird, mentally questionable practices. Having your teeth and fingernails done as some on the show did is advertising that they are different, or in other words weird. I wouldn't want any child of mine being exposed to someone that in my opinion may not be very mentally balanced, and is seemingly proud to advertise the fact.
Those of you saying 'how dare anyone judge other person', would you let those couples baby sit for you? What if they really loved your baby?
These people are literally consuming someone to be closer/become part of them. And that's not nuts?? Professional, psychological help is what these 'vampire' people need, not social acceptance as if that is somehow healthy, rational thinking.

Others seem to feel different, that is their right.

Who are any of you to judge another human being? What is normal to you is not normal to the next. You judgmental pricks are the f--king weirdos.

Such strong opinions against this doc on these posts. Why not just let people live? They aren't doing it in your house or at your child's school, so ignore it. We are FREE people to do whatever we like. I don't enjoy anything they showed but I wouldn't dare tell another person he or she can't simply because I don't like it. I don't like sushi either, should you all not eat sushi because I find it disgusting?

I wonder how successful the 'mating' with those lesbians was. lol I guess blood must have a lot of calories. Taboo mating... sure mate. Stupid, sick minded weird fckers more like it. Do the rest of us a favor, and cut deeper you head cases. Don't mess around, do it properly.
I usually try to keep an open mind, but calling this BS mating rituals is wrong. Mating is for the purpose of sexual reproduction. I'm sorry for all the gay couples in the world, but regardless of what you wish you can never have a mating with the same sex. (personally I don't care who wants to sleep with whom, but don't try to call it something it can never be)
And this vampire crap. Call that what it is, mental illness. Wtf is wrong with some people. Bloody sickos.

there are love rituals among people and a separate set of mating rituals among the warrior, nomadic tribes who have bloodlustedly risen to the top of society. child sexual abuse is inherent in these 'noble' tribes of the West to make 'men' out of boys and 'women' out of men and both men and women infertile and unattractive to eachother. we must not be lured into thinking that pederasty, sodomic rape, blood ritual etc are anything to do with natural love, fidelity or freedom. Its a freak show.

This is the death knoll for humanity as it has spelt the death knell of all withdrawing Empires: total debauch, bestiality, canabalism and the sheer ugliness of it all is enough to condemn the specie as having been made extinct through toxic waste which they worshipped as a religion.

Wow, someone watches to many vampire movies and bases their existence on a Bram Stoker novel. Lame. **** National geographic, I thought I was going to watch an insightful investigation into actual mating rituals from far flung cultures. Not some massively obese lesbians from Sydney sucking each others blood through intravenous needles and some sexual control freak from the US with plastic glue on nails and a goatee. BBC any day.
