Sexual or Erotic Films focus on themes with either suggestive, erotic or sensual scenes or subjects, sometimes with depictions of human nudity and lovemaking, but not always of an extremely explicit, gratuitous or pornographic nature. These kinds of films often appeal to the emotions of the viewer, with their emphasis on pleasure, physical desire, and human companionship. Films of romance with heart-throb sexy lead characters may have sexual elements, but these are often secondary to the main plot goal - the search and attainment of love. In the days before the film industry's stringent Production Code was established in known as the Hays Code after Will Hays, the head of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America - MPPDA and strictly enforced after to regulate "morally offensive" content, many silent and 'Pre-Code' taboo-breaking films contained adult-oriented material. In addition to nudity, sexuality and violence, they included candid depictions of drug use, prostitution, lawlessness, and religious blasphemy. Since the abandonment of the Hays Code in the late 60s, and the fairly recent establishment of various rating systems, sexual or erotic films with even small amounts of nudity have become more abundant.

Their work was part of a long lineage of stag films, 8mm home movies, mondo and nudist documentaries, and filmed stripteases exhibited to select audiences of men via cinema clubs or on private reels. Often produced on zero budget and distributed through a network of magazine subscriptions and black market retailers, these motion pictures were mostly disposed of or forgotten in short order. Their duration spans from the late 19th century to the advent of home video, often seen as signalling the death of the softcore genre. I think this has always been reflected in the way we have produced our erotic or sex cinema here.
