10 Raunchy Movies That Were Basically Just Porn

vamp lesbos The trend at the moment is for increasingly graphic hard core shoots to be interposed in the middle of raunchy films. Many efforts on this list contain real life porn in them which makes them not just a vessel for pornographic footage, but a downright porn movie in their own right. The need to push sex as a plot device, can in many films, lead to that movie becoming sex obsessed and pornographic. Viewer titillation by sex scenes becomes the goal, and things like character development and decent acting get lost along the way. Nevertheless, I am not anti-pornography. But I don't like films that are trying to pretend to have a message when all they want to do is shock or arouse us. I have compiled a list of raunchy films that are really porn for you below. Be sure to leave your comments!

10. Romance (1999)

romance movie Catherine Breillat's film - Romance - is another example of a director getting cute with the idea of explicit sex in their film as a way to shock and provoke the viewer, but in fact the sex acts add nothing to the film in terms of narrative. We just see erect willies and bare boobs and the film loses its meaning - becoming nothing but a showcase for explicit sex acts. I think the plot revolves around Marie's boyfriend Paul refusing to have sex with her and so she goes out and shags about. I don't know why he stays with her but it is probably a plot contrivance of some sort. Because it is 'arty' people talk a lot of guff about nothing - leaving us just with the rude bits that are unnecessary in the film. Baise Moi was released just a year after Romance and would turn out to be even more explicit than its predecessor. But the sexual acts in Baise Moi help to move the story on and give it impetus. With Romance it's just pornography a go go.
