I mean it all depends on social circles really. Pedophilia is generally taboo to talk about and yet age of consent law topics are commonplace in libertarian groups for example and a “running joke” in hentai. For incest, “stepsister” jokes are common (the trope is that “it’s ok stepbro I’m your stepsis”) which isn’t incest-incest therefore it’s ok, pushing the line of awkwardness to a limit. I don’t know if you’ll find universals as subcultures make their own realities that make sense to them. But you’ll find things that are more common and less common.
