Did mother/son sexual relationships really exist back in Ancient Greek/ Rome times?

Anonymous
My teacher in philosophy class said that back in ancient times a mother and her son had a sexual relationship and this wasn't seen as taboo like today, it was seen as normal. It was believed that the only way a boy could become a man was to have sex, but not just sex with any woman, the woman need to have the power to make him a man, and the only woman powerful enough to do so was his own mother the same woman that brought him into the world! What are your thoughts on this? It seems extremely taboo nowadays but makes sense when you think about the thought process back in those days.
