Nuked

High Level Porn

When a pornographic film aspires to some kind of critical legitimacy through high production values.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Every once in a while a pornographic movie is made which breaks from the typical low-rent mode and invests in expensive sets, period costumery, an original musical score, a serious attempt at a decent script and good acting in the non-sex parts, perhaps even some non-sex related special effects. Sometimes these are efforts to portray the pornographic endeavor as an art film or a serious commentary on society, other times they attempt to broach other genres like screwball comedy or action/adventure.

    But it's not really about the porn so much as everything but the porn. For example if you go to the You Tube Porn-Without-The-Porn cut of ''Pirates'', it's an hour-long movie with a plot, acting, fx, and a score, even once all the sex scenes have been excised.

    Ah, we don't have Porn Tropes anymore, they're more trouble than they're worth. They attract creeps who edit things in without anyone noticing. Which attracts a different kind of creep who will judge the entire community on what these guys write.

    Scenery Porn? Porn With Plot? Is it the word "porn" in the title? Is it the sexual content of the movies? Is a trope aimed at the nonsex content of movies which try to cross the boundary into mainstream still a Porn Trope at all?
