!!Associated Tropes:

* OfCorsetsSexy: One episode of ''Taboo'', in keeping with its theme of body modification, interviewed a woman who wore a corset because she wanted to retain her hourglass figure despite her age. The corset was even tightlaced to the point where her waist had a circumference of ''15 inches''.
* ShownTheirWork: In excruciating detail, even when the show is dealing with speculative matter, such as on ''Storm Worlds''.
* SpeculativeDocumentary: Some of the shows that air on NatGeo fit into this genre, such as episodes of ''Aftermath'' and ''Storm Worlds''.
* YourNormalIsOurTaboo: Its series ''Taboo'' deals a lot with practices that are normal for certain cultures that Westerners would find shocking, obscene, odd or [[TitleDrop taboo]].
