X-Rated Films

If you don't have much experience with X-rated films, you may envision them to be gross, disturbing, or even a bit scary. Before jumping to conclusions, though, you should really check out some adult movies for yourself. Give them a fair chance. It's very important to try a few different types of films, preferably from a variety of companies and/or producers. Just as with mainstream films, adult films come in many different styles and genres. There are the more romantic style that are often described with terms like “erotic” and “sensual.” On the other end of the spectrum are the hardcore and graphic varieties that are geared toward the more adventurous viewers. Then there are soft-core porn films that tend to be a little tamer and often only show partial nudity.

A popular trend in adult films is the increase in erotic movies that are made by women, for women. These tend to have a little more dialogue and more storyline that the typical adult film, and they often spend more time on scenes featuring foreplay.

Many people are intimated by adult films because they fear that they (or their bodies) won't “measure up” when compared to the actors on screen. Relax! Most likely, your partner is turned on by what the actors are doing, not necessarily what they look like.

If you find it distracting to compare yourself to the perfect-looking film stars, a good solution can be to try watching amateur adult films. These are made by real people, with real (usually unenhanced) bodies.
