Stanley Thornton is not your average 29 year-old.
He has massive amounts of cellulite, poops in diapers and has an equally morbidly obese woman enabling this escapist behavior, all chronicled by Nat Geo's fascinating series, "Taboo."NGC's "Taboo" returns for a 7th season beginning Monday, May 2, 2011, with back-to-back premieres beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT before settling into its regular night and time, Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
NGC's "Taboo" actually trumps TLC's "Strange Sex" for real freak-on-a-leash shock value. Infantilism is a weird scene, as grown people love to suck on teats, bottles and urinate and defecate in diapers, just like a baby.

For many it is a sexual fetish, and for some, like an obese California man named Stanley, is is a daily lifestyle enabled by an equally morbidly obese "caretaker" named Sandra Diaz, an ex-nurse who coddles and cleans up Stanley's poopy behind, powdering his tush and reading night-night stories too.
The new season of "Taboo" covers everything from the curious case of Baby Stanley to Sexual Relationships with a car, to hoarding 400 pigs.
In the premiere, you meet Stanley, a 350 pound infant (age 29) who is helped by a live-in nurse, Sandra Diaz, who enables this whack behavior that Stanley claims gives him "relaxation" as he role-plays as an infant. Stanley and Sandra find a weird way to channel any sexual energy they might have had if they had healthy bodies.
"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 reviled in others.
Since the beginning of time, humans have indulged in fantasy. But in today's fast-paced and anonymous societies, fantasy lives often begin to verge on the taboo.
In this premiere episode, Stanley chooses to role-play as a diaper-wearing baby. A Florida woman treats a vinyl doll like a real infant, caring meticulously for its every need. A Japanese kickboxer cross-dresses as female anime characters. And a suburban father breaks a moral code by keeping one family in reality and another in a virtual world.
