Honey, is this romance or is this porn?

Let us play a game. I will name a film title and we shall have you guess if it deserves a space on the porno sites. Ready?

Well, hold on to your horses (no euphemisms meant), just to be fair, before we begin, perhaps I should grant you a crash course on what are considered cheap and pornographic and what are valued as steamy and romantic, the type of movie that make hearts flutter with excitement.

Essentially, it all boils down to the intention of the film-maker.

Is the storyline crafted toward the direction of playful lust or meaningful love? Additionally, what is the main purpose of the film? Do the intimate scenes serve as the supporting portions of the content or is it the backbone of the plot?

Some people may think that pornography is absent of story line and contains only the sexual acts, but they will find themselves grossly mistaken.

These days, there are pornographic titles with carefully assembled content that provide story line build-ups before leading to the climatic finale under the sheets.

There are numerous tales of the lonely neighbour, the mischievous superhero, the rogue law enforcement officer and the nun with a dark secret, many of these scenarios could easily fall within the porn zone, all that determines its placement is the intention.

In order to establish the deciding factor of where a film lies, we must compare their features in depth.

 

First, let us examine some of the artistic portrayals of the sexual act that have been captured in a non-pornography setting.

Romance can happen anywhere, even in the dirty woods. (Credits: Katie Salerno)

In Love & Basketball (2000), directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, audiences are treated to a sensual scene where the female lead loses her virginity to her childhood sweetheart after a happy announcement and it also happens to be a rare occurrence in film history where the use of a condom is displayed.

The scene is warm, touching and realistic to many viewers. The atmosphere is enacted in such a raw (the female lead kept her granny pearl necklaces on throughout the act!) and sentimental manner that audiences cannot help but remember it as a modern classic.

Another powerful romantic sex scene involves Rooney Mara and Kate Blanchett in the drama film, Carol (2015), where the actresses strip and engage in an artistic display of lesbian love that allow their unfettered passions speak a thousand words through sheer bodily chemistry.

The film is proof that the ageless act of intimacy may exist between people of any gender while still preserving a deep spiritual significance.

Sometimes, the romantic display in a film is so tangible that it would not come as a surprise when co-stars get it on in the process. Such was the case for Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005), a film about a drifting undercover couple who are secretly assassins.

Stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were so convincing in their sexual interactions, it was inevitable that they went on to marry and adopt a couple of foreign children as a Hollywood power couple (the proceeding divorce was the true shocker).

 

Now, we shall examine the other end of the spectrum, where lust is king, and the target crowd is predominated by warm-blooded males who contribute to a booming $100 billion global sex clad industry.

Pornographic films do not bother much with the character developments in a story insofar that they engage in stimulating sexual acts for the viewing pleasure of the paying customer.

These are films primarily directed to achieve sexual arousal and satisfaction in the viewer. Sexual fantasies are sometimes involved for the kinkier audiences, including themes such as BDSM, necrophilia, and clothing fetishism.

A major difference between a porn and non-porn film is that a body double is often used in the sex scenes for the latter while porn stars are specially trained to perform the act, often applying sexual methods and camera techniques that extend the duration of the viewing pleasure.

According to online reviews, here are some of the best porn films of all time:

Blonde Ambition (1981)

The tagline alone is enough to entice the cheeky crowd: ‘If you liked “deep throat” and “singin’ in the rain” you’re gonna love Blonde Ambition.’ The movie is set in the 1940s golden age of Hollywood with a pair of hopeful young stage dancers arrive in New York for a job that turns out to be a scam. The ladies bunk in with a millionaire who offers them roles at an X-rated set and a series of hardcore pornography unfolds.

Fallen (2008)

The film directed by Brad Armstrong features an angelic being stuck down to Earth after a failed human protection duty. The angel explores the sinful world of lust that she gets trapped in and becomes skillful at executing the most complicated and cringe-worthy sexual positions.

And of course, there will be the one movie that dangerously blurs the line between the borders.

Nothing to Hide (1981)

Two friends seek sexual advice through an impressive story development. Never has a pornography movie receive such great acclaim as Nothing to Hide, winning a staggering 9 erotica awards including that of best film. The bar was set sky high with this one, two sequels soon followed. If audiences could look past the heavy pornographic content, this movie could pass off as a decent romance film.

 

Blue Films

A term heard from time to time, it is wrongly applied to refer to porn films as there are some differences between the categories. Blue films are usually produced by amateurs and may sometimes include homemade videos.

Hence, budget is minimal, and the quality may seem raw and poor. However, there might be more realism added since everyday people are involved in the act rather than the performance of specially trained porn stars.

Unfortunately, the filmmakers of these content are usually unpaid, and their works are easily stolen and exploited by third parties.
