[=PWPs=] are convenient for the writer who wants to produce smut, because they do not require [[BackStory justification]], they simply happen with no explanation. PWP can also stand for "'''P'''erson '''W'''ith '''P'''erson", because of the frequent occurrence of... [[CrackPairing non-standard]] couplings, similarly without the need for justification.

justification. Many years ago, its most common translation was "Plot? What Plot?", although that meaning has faded, except among the much older fanbases (such as ''Franchise/StarTrek'').

Added DiffLines:

YMMV variant: Sexually explicit mainstream films and TV shows, especially shows who have unsimulated sexual scenes (something becoming less rare in film than it used to be) are often accused - sometimes accurately, often not - as being this. Conversely there are many pornographic films that have very strong plots (so much so that many have been released in non-hardcore and even non-sexual edits and still stand up; examples include ''Cafe Flesh'' and ''Star Wars XXX'').

* Discussed by UmbertoEco in one of his non-fiction books where he says that you can tell the difference between a Porn movie and an Art movie that just happens to feature explicit sex scenes in that, in a Porn movie it takes a character exactly as long to do something mundane like drink a glass of water as it would in real life (because the director doesn't want to bother with anything more than will probably be fast forwarded through anyway).

* Discussed in [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/cheesy_scripts this]] ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' strip and [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/sticky_facial the one immediately following]], where two characters agree that they prefer porn ''with'' plot, while implicitly acknowledging that some doesn't have any. The trope is later somewhat {{averted|Trope}} in gags about the past career of Amber Larose, an ex-porn actress whose work seems to have had some plots, if only because the references can be made funnier that way -- see, e.g., strip #652 (September 29, 2012, NSFW).
