There is a whole world of R18 rated full on pornography out there for adults to indulge in. We have dozens of XXX rated satellite Adult channels. The Internet IS porn. However, society is not geared towards the frank discussion and enjoyment of pornography. It is a dirty thing to be ashamed of. But we can talk about mainstream cinema and sexuality in a more open way.
Recently, what would be classed as pornography – unsimulated acts of oral sex, penetrative sex, ejaculation etc. – has made its way into the fringes of mainstream cinema. It is chiefly associated with the New French Extremity and it has got the censors in a whirlwind wondering how to deal with it.
In my experience of unsimulated sex acts in cinema – they are not pornographic and they are not a turn on. Most of them fit comfortably into the film as an extension of the proceedings. Rarely are they sleazy.
