You can find at least three topics of conversation in any American middle class family that are both sacred and taboo in some form or fashion - religion, money and sex. These are the three subjects we are all supposed to know about, but can't bring ourselves to talk about, at least not directly. And this makes it difficult for all of us because, let's face it, religion, money and sex go to the heart of what life is! They are, in fact, so interconnected that any one would not survive without the existence of the other two.
