Things That Are (Or Have Been) "Forbidden"

by tbanarchy

"Forbidden" Author: Marquis de Sade

The Marquis de Sade was one of the most "forbidden" writers who ever lived. He wrote books that made 50 Shades Of Grey read like Dr. Seuss! He also DID the very things he wrote about in his life.

"Forbidden" Film: The Human Centipede

The Human Centipede is a horror flick about a mad scientist who abducts three strangers & conducts horrific experiments on them where he . . . well, if you DON'T know, then I say you Google it.

"Forbidden" Music: The 2 Live Crew

The 2 Live Crew was a controversial rap group from the 80s & 90s with songs like "Me So Horny". Their album As Nasty As They Wanna Be was the FIRST album to be ruled legally "obscene" in the U.S.

"Forbidden" Comedian: Andrew "Dice" Clay

Andrew "Dice" Clay is one of the most controversial comedians of all-time with his "dirty" nursery rhymes & such. The PCers managed to all but destroy his career at the height of his popularity.

"Forbidden" TV: Heil Honey I'm Home!

In 1990 the BBC thought it would be a grand idea to air a "comedy" about-who else!-ADOLF HITLER called Heil Honey I'm Home! Needless to say, it lasted just ONE episode. (That's Heilarious!)

"Forbidden" Sex: The Kama Sutra

The Kama Sutra, in case you didn't already know, is the ancient Indian Hindu text that, among other things, details various sex positions such as Downward Dog & the ever-popular Doggy Style!

@bernardtwindwil Thanks for the kind words as always. As for the Kama Sutra being "forbidden", there are those that believe any & all depictions of sex are "forbidden" and therefore should NOT be openly discussed or depicted, including in this country even today. (Ironically, a few years ago the government in India pretty much banned porn in that country altogether.) As for Andrew "Dice" Clay, I agree with you on Lenny Bruce. But I picked Clay since Bruce was before my time and I remember the hell Andrew got from the PCers for his "politically incorrect" comedy; like, for instance, that time when singer Sinead O'Connor infamously refused to perform on the same episode of Saturday Night Live where he was hosting. I guess what's regarded as "forbidden" is all in the eyes of the beholder.

I did not know that the Kama Sutra was "forbidden". I always considered it a "how to book" like Popular Mechanics. I would like to putm in a word for Lenny Bruce. Great post!!!!!
