The tendency to break taboos (literary and social ones), sometimes is associated with the appearance in the artistic work of various forms of sexual relationships, such as rape, prostitution, or even child abuse. Because of the complex relationship of man with sex in the Albanian context, a considerable number of writings arise over the tension that comes from forced or strained relationships (sexual condemnation). So, for example, the novel “Stars don’t dress like that” by Elvira Dones, can be considered as a provocative display of the deformities that sex may take in an unprepared society for the opening after the long night of totalitarian regime. Rape, prostitution, etc., appear as forms of punishment for the female sex in a fierce masculine world.
Key Words: Rape culture, taboo breaking, denaturalized relationship, etc.
