Pornographic films pornos , erotic films , or sex films are films that present sexually explicit subject matter in order to arouse and satisfy the viewer. Pornographic films present sexual fantasies and usually include erotically stimulating material such as nudity softcore and sexual intercourse hardcore. A distinction is sometimes made between "erotic" and "pornographic" films on the basis that the latter category contains more explicit sexuality , and focuses more on arousal than storytelling, but the distinction is highly subjective. Pornographic films are produced and distributed on a variety of media, depending on the demand and technology available, including traditional film stock in various formats, video for home viewing , DVDs , Internet download , cable TV , in addition to other media. Today, pornographic films are sold or rented on DVD; shown through Internet streaming, special channels and pay-per-view on cable and satellite; and viewed in rapidly disappearing adult theaters. By law, they are generally not permitted to be shown in mainstream cinemas, or on free-to-air television.
