In sports, out of bounds means outside of the field of play. This phrase can be used to symbolize something that is off-limits.
“I would ask Brett’s sister on a date, but I’m afraid that might be out of bounds.” In this case, the speaker is implying that trying to date Brett’s sister would be off-limits or not allowed.
