Any UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}} where the sexual stuff is not the only point to it. Sure, the writer was probably typing one-handed at some point, but it has a plot that isn't merely an excuse for having sex on screen. Bonus points if the sex is actually plausibly worked into said plot or used for characterization. Sometimes, this is the consequence of a PornWithoutPlot developing a PlotTumor.

In some cases, pornos were once made with plotlines so that they could be considered “art” and thus protected from the laws against indecency. A more tolerant public, being in combination with the explosion of the internet allowing for easy distribution, lead to the overwhelmingly PornWithoutPlot porn world we have today. That said, even today, there are porn films with intriguing if not all that well-developed plots, and at least some porn stars are serious albeit often not terrifically talented actors.

And there are exceptions to every rule. ''Cafe Flesh'', a 1982 sci-fi porn film, has been recognized as a bona fide SF classic. And several more recent porn films, particularly of the "parody" genre, have been considered high-enough quality in terms of acting, plot and production value that they have been successfully released in R-rated or even PG-rated edits with sexual content either reduced or all but eliminated (examples include ''Pirates'' and ''Star Wars XXX'').

More importantly, as the above quote notes, the really smart creators understand that if you create characters whom you care about, then the sexual content depicted with them is usually ''much'' more satisfying beyond mere titillation. Furthermore, as the stories with those characters progress with this artistic integrity in mind, the real interest for the reader will be not how bizarre the sex gets, but how the different characters get along with their differing tastes and points of view.

A lot of {{H Game}}s, or Eroge, can be described as this. Even though a lot of them stick close to their tropes, especially female archetypes with the HaremGenre games, remember, [[TropesAreTools tropes don't have to be bad]]. There are plenty of comedy works, but also a fair share of drama and romance. Some are better than others, and a few are considerably better than most. However, some people have a habit of grouping Porn With Plot with {{hentai}} and [[PublicMediumIgnorance calling both of them the same thing]], even if the "porn" amounts to maybe one or two raunchier scenes hidden amidst hours of non-sexual gameplay.

Contrast, of course, PornWithoutPlot. Compare ItsNotPornItsArt. See also {{Fanservice}}, which is when an otherwise clean work includes {{Fetish}} elements to attract an audience.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* This trope is so popular among manga that it has [[http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?category=Borderline+H its own category]] at Manga Updates. And indeed, don't be surprised if a title among them gets mentioned down below.
* A considerable number of (although definitely not all) [[YaoiGenre Yaoi series]], in part so there's room for the necessary amounts of {{angst}}.
* Yamatogawa is an artist and author of a number of one-shot and short series {{Hentai}} manga that could be considered Porn with Plot because of the ridiculous quantity of explicit sex. Except they all have legitimate and well-written stories and many are flat-out hilarious. Plus the art is really very good.
* ''After... The Animation''. A 2 chapters OVA based on a VisualNovel by Ciel, the story is about a group of six kids, 3 boys and 3 girls, during their last year of high school, where we know about their complicated feelings and the different love triangles they're all involved. It gets deep when you know each of their inner issues, specially when they discuss about settling down for their future and their love lives. And the porn scenes are pretty good.
* ''Alice In Sexland'', despite the rather uninspired title, is a [[{{Grimmification}} reimagining of the classic]] ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland''. Wonderland, in this version, is an [[spoiler:afterlife for people who died as a result of sexual and emotional abuse, in which those victims can live in a world of magical people offering SafeSaneAndConsensual sex.]] The Red Queen becomes a metaphor for [[spoiler:Colonialism]], as she is another [[spoiler:human who died of abuse, but carried on regrets, bringing about a culture of rape.]]
* ''Coyote''. It's a non-canon prequel to ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' that involves LaResistance, Pip Bernadotte's backstory, foxy snipers, ThoseWackyNazis, and an Arab boy with dual handguns. You could crop out all the sex and it still constitutes a story, if not a compelling one.
* BoysLove manga ''Manga/CrimsonSpell'' was described by one reviewer as "a really good fantasy series with lots of sex scenes".
* Nakamura Asumiko's ''[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/double_mints/ Double Mints]]'' is a good example. The plot and characters are absolutely fascinating, and there's a little sex sprinkled in.
* ''Dragon Knight: Wheel of Time'' is a Medieval swords and sorcery adventure, spanning four 30min. episodes. [[TheAtoner Marlenna]] sends Kakeru into the past [[spoiler: again]] in an attempt to put an end to what's become [[StableTimeLoop a repeating time-line]], where she betrays him and aids Lucifon in turning their world into a near barren wasteland. What follows, is a quest where Kakeru has to keep his identity secret from his 15 year old self and his [[LoveInterest love interest]], Natasha. All while leading the last remnants of humanity against Lucifon's army and watching for the signs Marleena's inevitable betrayal. It can be loosely thought of as ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' re-imagined as softcore porn.[[note]]Since there's only one sex scene per episode, which are usually short and never shows actual penetration.[[/note]] Creator/ADVFilms has even released a censored version [[DeletedScene with the sex scenes removed entirely]], which reduces its total runtime from 125 minutes, to 105.
* ''Drainage City'' is a very strange hentai about the bizarre inhabitants [[DownTheDrain of a sewer-based society]], with lots and lots of bizarre sex involved. It's weird enough that it would be compelling even without the sex, but the sex that does ensue is even more bizarre
* ''End of Summer'' is a 4 part series that's equal parts SliceOfLife and DatingSim, about Wataru, who dreams of working up the courage to ask Mai to be his girlfriend. As the title implies, he has 'til the end of summer (just two weeks away) to do it. Except Mai is already [[RomanticFalseLead sorta seeing someone]] and there's [[UnwantedHarem four other girls]] to contend with, plus, he has to deal with his best friend's love problems. All of which makes it hard for Wataru to concentrate on his own.
* ''The Elven Bride'' had the titular elf and her human husband struggling to live a happy life together and facing obstacles that interfered with their happiness amongst the gratuitous sex scenes.
* ''Femme Kabuki'' is essentially what ''Showgirls'' wanted to be along with a [[ShownTheirWork history lesson on Meiji Era Japan]] as it's about the [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold troupe]] dealing with a hypocritically corrupt world and the sex itself is usually portrayed more positively as [[ItsNotPornItsArt artistic,]] [[CatharsisFactor cathartic,]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] and [[FunPersonified just plain fun]] rather than seedy as the ex-samurai turned [[DirtyCop dirty cops]] claim it to be out bitterness at losing their old status.
* ''Manga/FutariEcchi'': Buy it for the hot naked girls. Read it for the developing marital relationship and interesting factoids about love and sex.
* In ''Manga/GlassNoMegami'', it's love at first sight for college students Sakura and Kurimiya, but GenkiGirl Aya -- Kurimiya's classmate since childhood and current [[SempaiKohai Kouhai]] -- sweeps Sakura off his feet before he quite knows what's happening. When Aya ends up falling deeply in love with him, Sakura has to decide what and who he wants the most. It's a fairly standard LoveTriangle plot with plenty of steamy sex, but it's well-written with characters who are engaging enough that the ultimate breaking of the triangle is a heart-breaking TearJerker.
* ''Manga/HaruWoDaiteita'''s plot is based on two [[YaoiGenre male]] Adult Video actors attempting to break into mainstream acting. They actually have some success, in spite of the paparazzi, and back stabbing actors.
* ''Hatsu Inu''. At least in the first episode. An OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent manages to score an incredibly hot (if [[TheQuietOne very quiet]][[note]]In fact, she only talked about two or three times throughout the whole series; most readers initially believed her to be [[CuteMute actually mute]].[[/note]]) girl. The problem? She has a fetish for toys and it quite hurts on the poor dude's psyche ("Which do you prefer, your toys or me?"). Features gorgeous artwork and at times, hilarious moments.
* ''Is My Hobby Weird?'' is [[YuriGenre a Yuri]] short story about Maiko Fujiyama, who spends her morning commute staring up other girls' skirts, as she ascends the stairs at the subway station. Her [[CovertPervert secret kink]] is that girls with firm, plump, buttocks turn her on, which is how she meets Risa Tsuzuki. To Maiko's surprise, Risa was not only aware it, she tells Maiko she doesn't mind and entices her to continue staring up her skirt. Despite having graphic sex scenes, they're more artistic than titillating, due to Camuko's artstyle, character designs, and his painstaking attention to detail.
* Yasuomi Umetsu's ''Anime/{{Kite}}'' and ''Anime/MezzoForte'' are fairly extreme examples -- ''Mezzo Forte'' in particular only has two sex scenes between two episodes, both of which are shoehorned in with no real plot impact; one is even AllJustADream. Both received [[BleachedUnderpants non-pornographic follow-ups]]. This is actually not uncommon in anime... a creator will be unable to sell his anime plot as a serious series, but by adding at least two sex scenes can get someone to finance it as a hentai venture. This is especially true of fairly generic "sci-fi horror" stories, where the sexuality could lift right out and the story would be unaltered. There are at least 13 episodes of ''Mezzo'' which were once availaible in the [=US=] which aren't hentai.
* ''Manga/MaidenRose'' (a.k.a. ''Hyakujitsu No Bara'') has a lot of graphic/explicit sex scenes (including some quite brutal rape scenes) which manage to add depth to the main characters. In addition to this, it has one of the most fascinating and convoluted plots to be found in [[BoysLove BL]] manga, which is heavily influenced by war and politics.
* ''Maka-Maka'': Or more precisely, "Porn with characterization" - you can tell that both friends care deeply for each other, even though you pretty much only ever see them having sex together.
* ''Mekko Rarekko'' (''The Bully and the Bullied'' translated to English), is a Kemono or PettingZooPeople doujinshi that features two junior high school students but also features UsefulNotes/{{Furry|Fandom}} [[{{Yiff}} sex]] in every chapter, but later on, the plot becomes so depressing that most people just read it to find out what happens next rather than for...other things. The characters either have a DarkAndTroubledPast or they are psychologically damaged in some way, sometimes they are both and the sex the characters do have always has ulterior motives that make it difficult to get aroused by. But the story does have a few nice heartwarming moments in it.
* ''Manga/MyBalls''. Features plenty of nudity and sexual situations... and is also damn hilarious, the porn itself actually leading to a good chunk of the humor and the story.
* ''Manga/MyLovelyGhostKana'' is quite explicit, but the story is so heartwarming that the sex scenes will be only half the reason you like it.
* ''Manga/NanaToKaoru'' features bondage, S&M play and titillating {{Ecchi}} manga silliness. It also features clichéd but interesting characters who slowly come to terms with the fact that they actively enjoy playing Master/Slave bondage games while still remaining otherwise normal people.
* ''Manga/{{Octave}}'' is a moving story of love, jealousy, and what happens to the people that stardom leaves behind. Replacing the [[YuriGenre large amounts of lesbian sex]] with {{Sexy Discretion Shot}}s (and changing the flashacks) would leave you with a complete story, but with less impact.
* ''Manga/OmujoOmutsuJoshi'' earns a place here not due to any explicit sex or nudity, of which it has none over its first dozen-plus chapters, but because what it ''does'' have, in abundance, is fanservice geared towards diaper and pee fetishes which serves much the same purpose. Panty shots, or, to be more precise, diaper shots abound and PottyFailure occurs OnceAnEpisode. Minus that, the actual story is much like any typical HaremGenre work, with male lead Shouta interacting with a ShrinkingViolet, a ChildhoodFriend, and a LovableSexManiac.
* ''Peace Hame'' (''Pisu Hame'') could've ''easily'' been another ClicheStorm of a Harem anime given the protagonist is tasked with making a porn portfolio of the girls he has sex with as the ''official school yearbook.'' Refreshingly instead, it follows the exact same story structure of a typical ''Shonen'' story among other shout-outs to be a legitimately [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny,]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] and especially [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]] AffectionateParody series with the [[MundaneMadeAwesome challenges to win each girl]] parodying everything from ''Anime/YuGiOh'' to ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' to the climax being a [[ProWrestlingIsReal no-holds barred wrestling match against the Big Bad]] with [[TheHero Tamao]] not only wearing a certain stylized singlet, but using the [[Wrestling/RobVanDam "Five-Star Tamao Splash"]] with teenage DistaffCounterpart versions of ''Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler'' on commentary! Sites like Fakku naturally ran with this to make up names for Tamao appearing to achieve Bankai with a RagingStiffie in place of a sword as the hentai equivalent of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''.
* ''Power Play'' [[{{Parodied}} spoofs]] [[HGame H-Games]], by having [[TheProtagonist Sudahama]] be a fledgling game designer, who's being hunted by three of his own characters ([[HeroicWannabe Maria]], [[{{Kuudere}} Eclair]], and [[WhiteMagicianGirl Nina]]). In their universe, [[note]]i.e. the game he created[[/note]] he's the evil "Sex King," known for raping countless heroines, princesses, and priestesses, and [[SexGod enslaving them with his sexual prowess]] - ''including them''. But their quest for "justice" turns out to be pretense [[AllWomenAreLustful so they can get more.]] Despite Sudahama's growing attraction to his familiar, [[DarkskinnedBlonde Sarah]], it ends with all four girls deciding to live with him as his harem of willing {{Sex Slave}}s.
* The ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' series of doujin by the circle D.L. Action. It revolves around the developing love between an unnamed Acolyte and a Swordswoman.
* ''Manga/SakuraGari'' has plenty of sex scenes, almost all of them being [[HoYay between men]], but it also has an intensely dramatic plot and many of said sex scenes are vital to it.
* ''Secret Plot'' and ''Secret Plot Deep'' [[GrowingTheBeard prove to be this trope]] and live up to the titles, instead of just another HotForTeacher / HotForStudent series, as the [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl teachers]] are shown to be pathetic, empty losers without a student to seduce. A WholesomeCrossdresser has a tragic backstory and complex over it until he gets better through ThePowerOfLove. The ExtremeDoormat / [[BiggerIsBetterInBed main boy toy,]] Masaki's weak will and free time is deconstructed to reveal it's due to his AbusiveParents only giving a damn about his grades when [[IJustWantToBeLoved he just wants to be loved]]; the closest he gets to that feeling is when [[TheLadette Mayumi]] gets a bout of LaserGuidedAmnesia and turns {{Moe}} long enough for them to make love rather than the usual wild fucking they have.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu''. Barely short of actual sex (Momo's fantasies REALLY push the envelope), the Fanservice in the sequel "Darkness" is so intense that in Taiwan it is outright slapped with an R18 sticker and sold in such sections.
* ''Manga/ToshiueNoHito'' is a complex love story about a university student who falls for/is pursued by a seemingly young, tiny, cute freshman. Unfortunately, she's [[OlderThanTheyLook a lot older than she looks]] and has a ''lot'' of personal baggage. The porn part comes in later with the uncensored nudity in the sex scenes. That is, when they aren't being [[MomentKiller accidentally cockblocked by visitors]].
* ''VisualNovel/{{Suika}}''. Three lightly connected stories featuring young people falling in love, reclaiming love, or admitting love. A few TearJerker moments. A bit of drama. And some quite hot sex scenes. Including one with [[spoiler: Death]]. This itself is a adaption from the eroge VisualNovel/{{Suika}}, which was created with the intention to be a TearJerker in the first place.
* ''VisualNovel/YosugaNoSora'' does this one not as an {{OVA}} but as a midnight time-slot TwelveEpisodeAnime. Unlike most networks who are shy enough to censor breasts or nipples, this one goes through the whole nine yards with no repercussions whatsoever.
* ''Manga/Yuria100Shiki'' is about a Dutch Wife ({{sex|bot}}[[RidiculouslyHumanRobot bot]]) named Yuria who runs away from her creator when she realizes why he built her, runs into [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary college student]] Shunsuke who takes her in (unaware of her true nature) and lets her stay with him. She is programmed to be a Sexbot but doesn't really ''want'' to be one because as soon as she has sex with someone, she will be programmed to be their sex slave forever. Even so, she still can't stop trying to [[BlackComedyRape "seduce"]] Shunsuke at every opportunity, who uses his [[WrestlerInAllOfUs none-to-shabby amateur wrestling skills]] to fend her off so he can remain faithful to his [[DefrostingIceQueen ice queen girlfriend]]. Meanwhile there is a pretty serious and significant overarching plot involving Yuria's [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman contemplation]] and [[IJustWantToBeNormal struggle against]] her own programming. Especially funny because, thanks to her programming, Yuria seems to believe any situation (be it treatment of bleeding, ''getting lost on a ski slope,'' or even '''''being stranded on a small island''''') can be resolved with a DeusSexMachina. HilarityEnsues.
* ''Words Worth'' is a 5 part series [[TheAnimeOfTheGame based on]] [[HGame the rpg]], by ELF Corporation. The crux of the plot centers on the destruction of the eponymous monolith, which has sparked a century long war between the tribes of Light and Shadow, who each believe the other is responsible. It also devotes much of its screentime to unraveling the truth behind TheProphecy which was inscribed on it[[note]]"Only one of Light and Shadow may read the words written here and understand their meaning. Thus, the two worlds will be made complete."[[/note]]. It can be thought of as the {{hentai}} equivalent of ''[[Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar Record of Lodoss War]]''.
* Many of Akatsuki Myuuto's stories, while they feature plenty of raunchy sex and the moral ambiguity typical of hentai, also turn out to have a surprisingly refined writing, character development and emotional drama, complemented by some gorgeous art. ''Bishoujo Club'' notably has a long and heartbreaking epilogue explaining in detail how humanity lost sexual desire and became unable to bear children ("producing" them by genetic engineering instead), how men nearly disappeared, how the protagonist came to be born, and how the "school" (in fact a secluded community surrounded by walls) was created, full with politics and terrorist groups involved.
* The classic [[TheNineties 90's]] {{hentai}} manga ''Dragon Pink'' by ITOYOKO is perhaps the purest possible example of this trope, to the point where it's more like an engrossing {{fantasy}} {{RPG}}-like series that just so happens to include [[DeusSexMachina sex scenes]] than actual porn. Starting off as a simple pornographic AffectionateParody of your [[ClicheStorm stereotypical]] {{JRPG}}, the plot [[GrowingTheBeard slowly builds to a fever pitch]] as our party [[GentleGiant Bobo]] & [[AllWomenAreLustful Pias]]/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Pierce]] ([[CharacterDevelopment who later become a]] BattleCouple and [[CharacterDevelopment even have a child together]]) and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Santa]] & his [[HappinessInSlavery slave]] CatGirl [[RoseHairedSweetie Pink]] WalkTheEarth and save the [[CrapsaccharineWorld ravaged world]] from vile villains. If only the story didn't [[CutShort stop on]] Pink being impaled by a sword while the others watch on in horror...
** In a [[WordOfGod private email to a troper]], ITOYOKO said he wants to finish the tale, but he simply doesn't have the time right now. [[{{Uncancelled}} So there may be hope for Pink and her pals yet]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The furry comic ''ComicBook/OmahaTheCatDancer'' is a classic example of plot with porn, having evolved from a mostly sex-based comic to a full-fledged soap opera comic with uncensored sex scenes over time. The series did have a tendency to go from a porn comic, to a plot with porn, back to pretty much straight porn at the drop of a hat again.
* The same could be said of Creator/PhilFoglio's ''ComicBook/XXXenophile'', except that it has a humorous tone and no {{Mind Screw}}s (... well, for the most part).
* ''ComicBook/{{Ironwood}}'' combines a standard fantasy quest storyline with hardcore sex. The writer Bill Willingham even commented that at times it was hard to insert each issue's obligatory sex scene without breaking the flow of the story.
* ''The Piano Tuner'', by Ignacio Noe, is a collection of short stories about the sexual misadventures of the eponymous character as he makes house calls. It's really quite hilarious, and reads more like a gag comic with a couple of pages of explicit sex in every story. Witness as he runs through the street naked being chased by a television producer (his latest conquest was the star). "I never did tune that piano..."
* Many, many comics from legendary Milo Manara, and as well the great Horacio Altuna. In fact, this appears to be relatively common in the French, and to a lesser extent, Italian comic scenes.
* Italian fumetti, in general, are porn, but so bizarre and just plain weird, that sometimes you can't help but follow. ''Druuna'' by Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri is a notable example. It generally takes place in some sort of SciFi-esque post-apocalyptic CrapsackWorld with some pseudophilosophy and MindScrew thrown in, but is mostly just an excuse to feature its buxom female lead in various erotic situations.
%%* ''ComicBook/HeathenCity Maranatha''
* ''Demi The Demoness'' by S.S. Crompton. (As ''any'' entry here might generate flak, here is a suggested litmus test: If the character has an X-over into a non-porn work -- in this case ''Pantheon'' -- it probably falls under this trope.)
* With a title like ''ComicBook/SexCriminals'' it's hardly surprising the comic features uncensored sex, but it also has a surprisingly complex plot about two people who discover they can stop time with their orgasms and proceed to use it to commit crimes, along with going into a lot of detail about the female main character's experiences in learning about her sexuality growing up.
* The furry military sci-fi parody comic ''ComicBook/TankVixens'', about an all-female (and mostly lesbian) battalion specialized in "psychological warfare".
* ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'' began as softcore superhero-themed bondage porn (originally, it was simply art commissions Adam Warren did for individual fans) before CharacterDevelopment and CerebusSyndrome gradually kicked in. Later volumes became increasingly dark and serious, although never quite losing the humor and the bondage fanservice.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Although the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' PeripheryDemographic has more of a reputation for [[PornWithoutPlot the usual kind]], there are still many examples of this:
** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1422/Romance-Reports Romance Reports]]'' is probably the most well-known, with the majority of reviewers expressing some degree of pleasant surprise that a "clopfic" can be so powerful and contain such emotional depth, deconstructing and reconstructing cliches like "sex ForScience", one night stands, even the concept of true love and soul mates. Indeed, while the sex can be removed and still be left with a coherent story, it is a somewhat emptier one.
** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/27874/xenophilia Xenophilia]]'' is another well-known example, although less of a Porn With Plot and more of a Porn With [[SliceOfLife Characterization]]. It's a subtle deconstruction of harem-type stories, although much more intense in its plentiful {{WAFF}} moments. Assuming you're open to [[InterspeciesRomance human-on-pony]] action, it's worth a read.
** The ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/2124/trixies-magic-bit Trixieverse]]'' books combine this trope with the WebSerialNovel. The characterisation and plot conflict are typically advanced through sex scenes, though in later books porn becomes more sparse and {{WAFF}} more common.
** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/97146/pen-pals Pen Pals]]'': Apple Bloom receives a letter from Babs Seed that pretty much says -- in a way leaning towards the more "graphic" side -- that she has hots for her. Apple Bloom takes it as a joke, and comes up with an idea to respond that she has hots for her too. Soon, Babs sends a reply stating her excitement and an announcement that she'll arrive soon, much to Apple Bloom's horror. From there, HilarityEnsues. A nice mix of comedy, romance, more serious moments, actual character development and some reasonable amounts of explicit content that isn't forcibly shoehorned into the story. Oh, yes, and [[KissingCousins incest]], if you're [[{{Squick}} not into this kind of stuff]].
** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/9329/beating-the-heat Beating the Heat,]]'' takes a straight-up porn ''premise'' -- [[AliensMadeThemDoIt a plague of magic-induced heat that keeps spreading throughout Equestria and getting worse]] -- and turns it into an action comedy as the Mane Six with some friends race to find a solution while among other obstacles trying not to get too "distracted" themselves.
** Pablote's fanfics are interesting examples that are technically safe-for-work, but are absolutely intended as porn for the ToonPhysics and [[AmusingInjuries cartoon slapstick]]-fetish crowd. ''FanFic/SombrasGame'' is an action-comedy about Celestia and Luna saving Equestria from King Sombra, and enduring an endless gauntlet of cartoon violence in the process. ''FanFic/TheSunAndMoonAreHarshMistresses'' is a BlackComedy about Trixie getting rehabilitated after her "crimes" in "Boast Busters"--and all the cartoon violence that entails. The most ambitious of the bunch, ''FanFic/BreathersForApplejack'', involves a curse that envelops nearly all of Ponyville in MassHypnosis, and Applejack must reunite her friends in order to defeat the witch who cast the curse. And the exact nature of the curse means [[InflatingBodyGag somepony get inflated]] at least twice per chapter--with Applejack being the most frequent victim.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' fandom:
** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6939823/1/Two_Slayers_One_Heart_Version_Three_Point_Zero Two Slayers - One Heart]]'' is an amazing, and extremely NotSafeForWork fic where the porn and the plot are perfect (though the porn becomes rarer throughout the story). It's no longer on Adult Fanfiction.net (link fixed), but a toned-down, no-graphic-sex version is on Fanfiction.net -- the link now points there.
** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4016674/1/Militat_Omnis_Amans_Every_Lover_is_a_Warrior Militat Omnis Amans]]'' (Every Lover is a Warrior) involves Buffy and Willow as an established couple, in an epic adventure where they defend a fantasy world besieged by demons. And frequently have sex with each other [[spoiler:(and later four-ways two other women who befriend them in this world)]].
* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' fanfiction ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3810858/1/In_the_Cold_Cold_Night In the Cold Cold Night]]''.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' fandom:
** From the same studio that made ''RE-TAKE'' comes ''Negimaru''. It is five chapters total, and by the third the porn very noticeably takes second place to the plot [[spoiler:where Chisame is killing herself by whoring herself out for the sake of being the best net idol. Negi ends up getting killed by Chisame as she goes insane]], and by the fifth chapter there are only four out of fourty-plus pages with ecchi material. Could also be considered a DarkFic. [[spoiler:It ends happily though, [[BittersweetEnding sort of]], with Nagi showing up and allowing Chisame to sacrifice her memories of Negi to create a different world where he doesn't die.]] The entire story is basically a {{Deconstruction}} of the typical silly PWP Doujin plot. And then it [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v29/c264/8.html (possibly)]] got a ShoutOut, too! [[http://manga.redhawkscans.com/reader/read/mahou_sensei_negima/en/0/338/page/12 Twice!]]
** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4078106/1/Egg_Belly Egg Belly]]'', which has sex but it is only supplementary to Konoka and Setsuna's relationship, which is the focus. Weird name, great story... and Ch. 6 is [[HeadTiltinglyKinky mind-expanding]] yuri.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' -- ''Deep Water'' by Jenna Hilary Sinclair. Also, possibly ''Surrender'' by Killashandra, although it's a bit heavier on the porn than the plot.
* The {{NSFW}} versions of the ''Manga/LoveHina'' fanfics ''[[http://mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_st.php/58764 Loss and Redemption]]'' and ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1976449/1/Aftermath_Loss_and_Redemption_2 Aftermath: Loss and Redemption 2]]''. The plot holds up so well without the porn that the author rereleased worksafe versions of the fics, and they still worked. (Although the original versions are still superior, as the sex is used for the purpose of deepening the emotional intensity of the experience, not just titillation.)
* The ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' fan-verse web novel ''FanFic/MisfiledDreams'' has plenty of {{Lemon}} scenes, all of which are essential to advancing either the plot or the growing relationship of the two main characters.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fandom:
** ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Although there ARE sex scenes, the creator kept them deliberately few and little explicit because the point of them was showing that their relationship had progressed to the point where they could have a non-unhealthy life sex.
** The doujin ''Manga/ReTake'' got a "mainstreamed" re-issue because the main plot (Shinji [[PeggySue goes back in time]] from the beach at movie end and tries to do the "right" thing for the last 1/3 of the series, while Asuka follows and tries to stop him so he won't betray her again) is much more interesting than its handful of sex-scenes that often seem shoehorned in. Those who have read this story have comments that go from [[BetterThanCanon "better end than the original movie"]] to "they should make an anime adaptation of this story".
** While it might scare off potential readers due to its [[RomanticizedAbuse beginning]], ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3856690/1/Shinji-and-Asuka Shinji and Asuka]]'' makes the frequent sex scenes a plot point and part of the character development.[[note]]Due to Gendo drugging Shinji's LCL with testosterone, he gets more aggressive and during one of his arguments with Asuka, shuts her up by raping her (doublecrossing Gendo's plans who expected him to go after Rei instead). Of course, she gets mad over it and decides to not tell Misato but instead take revenge by using Shinji as an outlet for her sexual frustrations, reasoning that as long as he initiates everything, she won't have to take responsibility. He eventually finds out and takes issue with it; problem is, she saw his caring personality and fell in love with him for real. When they finally make peace and get together, they don't have much time to enjoy the others' company due to Asuka getting amnesia from an Angel attack and forgetting everything that happened between them, including the rape. This gives Shinji the opportunity to make a fresh start and win her over via normal means.[[/note]].
** [[http://anime.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600048463 Six Days]] features sex scenes heavily, but all of them are used to examine their personalities and develop their relationship.
** ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Although this doujin has sex scenes they are not the point of the story, they are fewer and they are always used for character development or examination.
* Pretty much anything by [[http://mithrigil.livejournal.com/425100.html Mithrigil and/or Puella_Nerdii]].
* ''Ethereum Gladiator'' is a NSFW example of wonderful blending of plot and sex.
* The ''Manga/DeathNote'' AU arc ''[[http://anime.adultfanfiction.net/authors.php?no=1296867228 Redeemer]]'' manages to balance copious amounts of sex with plots that actually make some kind of sense. Mostly. At the very least, they're long and convoluted enough that you don't notice if they don't.
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5930071/1/The_ruffling_of_fur_and_feathers The ruffling of fur and feathers]]'', though the plot does start overtaking the porn later on.
* The ''Anime/CodeGeass'' oneshot ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6129393/1/Kisses_and_Wishes Kisses and Wishes]]'' is actually an examination of Mao's emerging sexuality pitted against C.C.'s [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] aloofness, complete with plenty of BelligerentSexualTension, [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbation]] and, of course, SexAsRiteOfPassage.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' fanfiction ''[[http://thepunishment.tumblr.com/post/6675242883/ The Punishment]]'' began life on the KinkMeme (and [[ExcusePlot it shows]]), yet still manages to be an incredibly detailed and believable investigation into just how disorientating - and downright ''frightening'' at times - it would be for a machine to suddenly find themselves with a human body. Even the sex itself serves this theme, exploring just how bizarre, problematic and enjoyable the very thought of it is to someone who until recently never knew such things existed. It also helps that Wheatley is ''even more {{Adorkable}}'' as a human.
* The ''Takotsuboya K-ON Trilogy'', a {{doujinshi}} series about ''Manga/KOn''. Also an example of a DarkFic. If anything, it's the stuff surrounding the sex scenes that's more likely to traumatise readers.
* ''Fanfic/MyLifeAsATeenagedVonNeumannDevice'' starts out as just a simple ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' {{lemon}} fic, but becomes a ComingOfAge tale full of action, drama, romance... and still plenty of sex.
* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/492078 Last Chance (to Lose Control)]]'': [[Series/{{Supernatural}} "Dean and Castiel]] have sex. And some other stuff maybe happens."
* [=Slickboy444/MarvelMaster616=] has [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/232050/ three]] [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2158391/MarvelMaster616 different]] [[http://www.xmen-supreme.com/ pages]] for more or less regular fiction (mostly Franchise/MarvelUniverse), but the fics on the [[http://members.adult-fanfiction.org/profile.php?no=1296887221&view=story&zone=xmen separate aff.net page]] have also got more than enough plot... and smut, of course.
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fandom:
** ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10813967/1/Take-me-Home Take Me Home]]'' involves Blake's first time with Adam, as well as future encounters between the two. The sex is used to supplement the re-emerging relationship between the two, yet at the same time provide plenty drama and internal conflicts.
** [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/97778 Mafia Blake AU]] is set of {{Alternate Universe Fic}}s where Blake never left the White Fang and Weiss never became a Huntress. Chance and circumstance force them together, where they unravel the lies that have built their existence, betray their families (literal or figurative) to ensure their own safety, and start a new existence where they are not permanently bound to the whims of someone else. Oh, and have incredibly hot sex to cement their somewhat unhealthy relationship.
* The Great Scott Saga, without the sex, could actually pass for a multi-part episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' if you replaced the rampant sexual escapades for anything else. Most impressive is that each character still feels like themselves despite what's going on in-story. Admittedly, the first part seems incredibly hackneyed, but the plot really picks up from part three on.
* The controversial ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' webcomic, ''Better Late Than Never'', which is a sexually explicit fan comic that takes the ShipTease of Po and Tigress to areas the franchise can't go. The result is an erotic comic story with a touching emotional depth and suspense that feels surprisingly true to the characters as they explore their sexuality that the pair is too personally repressed to admit to themselves at first.
* A NSFW webcomic based on ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'', literally titled ''Grojband Fancomic'', is a downplayed example of this, seeing as how it focuses way more on the plot rather than the sexual content. Regardless, the comic comes across as an emotional ComingOfAgeStory between Corey, Laney, Trina, Mina, and Carrie as they attempt to explore and express each of their own sexualities (especially Corey, who has absolutely ''no idea'' what sex is). While there are a number of sex and [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbation]] scenes throughout the comic, nothing overly graphic is ever really shown as the character's genitals are usually off the page or censored through SceneryCensor (though the scenes in question are still pretty explicit).
* One of the most popular ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fics, ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5978767/chapters/13739953 Satisfaction Brought It Back]]'', is an AU story with no superheroes or other fantasy elements, instead involving the show's leads being reunited as adults by a bondage dating website. Outside of the sex scenes, the plot deals with both Marinette and Adrien's angst about wanting to move beyond FriendsWithBenefits but believing the other doesn't, as well as the impact on Marinette's business when Adrien's former boss wants him to come back to work and is willing to blackmail her over it.
* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5698801 Pouvez-vous me laisser entrer?]]'' is a ''Miraculous Ladybug'' fic which, around the halfway mark, becomes something of a deconstruction of the Ladrien side of the series' [[TwoPersonLoveTriangle Love Square]]. What starts with Ladybug visiting her crush Adrien in his room after finding out he's a fan of hers and initiating a sexual relationship progresses into an exploration of the murky consent issues involved in a relationship where both participants are concealing another side of their life that the other is familiar with: as such, Marinette is shown to be eaten up by guilt when interacting with Adrien at school, while Chat Noir likewise feels guilty while on patrol with Ladybug, as well as fearful of how his partner will react if she finds out.
* The Phineas and Ferb fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10569108/1/Ski-Trip Ski Trip]]'' is an example of this trope.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12151688/1/Vault-69 NSFW fallout fanfic]]'' is word porn with a great plot
* There's an InUniverse example in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''. The Alphanegan Chronicles are well known for their smut content (only 20%, according to Gladion), but also have a very well-crafted plot.
* Another {{Franchise/Pokemon}} fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9212653/1/Handle-with-Care Handle with Care]]'' has the simple-enough plot of Mewtwo and Mew trying for a child with all the tender sex scenes to show for it, yet LawOfInverseFertility brings about surprisingly tragic, TearJerker outcomes that delves deep into the characters and their struggles.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/LastTangoInParis''. Unlike ''Midnight Cowboy'', whose X rating has since been revised to an R, ''Tango'' earns every bit of its NC-17 designation. It features explicit sex throughout, though no nude scenes of Oscar-nominated star Creator/MarlonBrando.
* ''Film/TheBlueLagoon (1980)'' features lots of underage nudity and sex. It's also a powerful romance and a very educational examination of human nature that delves into love and marriage, ethics and morality, religion and theology, and sociology. It was [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on a well-written novel]] from a serious author, after all.
* Creator/DavidLynch is fond of this. ''Film/BlueVelvet'' contains quasi-consensual BDSM & voyeurism as major themes, but used them as building blocks for a MindScrew film noir. ''Film/MulhollandDrive'' had some pretty hardcore lesbian scenes, but in service to a tragically romantic psychological thriller, not to mention ''Film/WildAtHeart''...
* 1976's ''[[http://www.reverseshot.com/article/opening_misty_beethoven The Opening of Misty Beethoven]]'' is a sexually-explicit version of ''Theatre/{{Pygmalion}}''/''Theatre/MyFairLady''. Unlike later porn "parodies", it is intelligent, witty, and made on a reasonable budget; it's also so well-written and performed that some viewers feel that the explicit sex gets in the way of the story. It cleverly makes use of its explicit nature not only to titillate, but to lead the viewer into drawing uncomfortable conclusions about Eliza Doolittle in the original. It was so well made that it was worth it to digitally restore it for a two-disc DVD and [=BluRay=] release with extras that feature films don't always have.
* Sort-of similarly, 1975's ''Eskimo Nell'' is on the surface the tale of an attempt by a group of schlocky British film-makers to produce a big-screen version of the legendary epic porn comedy poem (featuring an Amazonian heroine who wears down the over-sized manhood of one thug to a thread and then shrugs off his vengeful accomplice's repeated firing of his six-gun up an intimate portion of her anatomy), but in reality is more a genuinely funny and insightful look into British low-budget film-making of the time (leading cast member and writer Michael Armstrong was a real-life veteran of this side of the industry), glossed with some very soft-core sexual shenanigans.
* This appears to have been the next wave in the '70s; in 1976 the world saw ''Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Comedy,'' starring Playboy Playmate ''[[IncrediblyLamePun cum]]'' mainstream actress (now retired) Kristen De Bell. It was produced as a mainstream adult film, and has production values to match: solid (though not particularly memorable) musical numbers, actual choreography and a reasonable attempt at acting on the part of most of the players. In fact, most of the hardcore footage was removed for a broadcast-friendly softcore version. Creator/RogerEbert gave it a favorable review.
* In the same way that big summer blockbusters inspire hack moviemakers to make [[TheMockbuster schlocky knockoffs in the hopes that confused grandmothers will buy the wrong one as a Christmas gift]], they also inspire [[ParallelPornTitles pornographies]]. To complement the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movies, there came out a movie ''Pirates XXX'' (basically, a ''Pirates of the Caribbean'' porn). Where it gets hilarious is that it was then edited into a softcore version for sale to cable networks that didn't run hardcore pornography. It is also [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0477457/ among the most expensive adult films ever made.]] And then they made [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_II a sequel...]]
* From the other side of the Atlantic, we had also ''The Private Gladiator'', which is essentially the porn version of Creator/RidleyScott's, what else, film ''Film/{{Gladiator}}''. Like ''Pirates'', it also had very high production values, convincing but not-quite stellar acting and choreography, a serious plotline that ''actually follows'' the original film (with tweaks that gives the hero Maximus a happy ending instead of being killed), ''accurate'' set piece props (including ''costumes and weapons!''), and raunchy sex scenes fitting for the Romans living in that era. In fact, it was made a ''trilogy'' out of it to actually finish the whole story.
* ''Film/{{Shortbus}}'' and ''Nine Songs'' are both borderline cases. They are both critically well regarded, but are marketed around featuring real sex. They both also differ from similar art-house movies that the sex is simply there, and not a way to create more drama.
* There is an ''X-Files'' porno where Mulder and Scully investigate a murderous cult that reveres Lilith. Aside from the porn, it actually sounds like a real episode of ''Series/TheXFiles''. The porn is appropriately titled ''The Sex Files''.
** There was, in fact, an entire ''series'' called ''The Sex Files'', and while the degree to which the plots could have fit as real episodes (excepting the sex bits) varies, they definitely tended to have coherent plots.
* ''Sex Trek'' is a porn movie with {{Expy}}s of the ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}: TOS'' cast getting in on in various ways on the ''Starship Intercourse''. And in between, there is a plot, the exposition of which is laced with [[IncrediblyLamePun awesome double entendres]] and self-deprecating humor. The first two minutes (SFW) are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PWyBrIcwhA on YouTube]]. It's actually pretty [[SoBadItsGood awesome]], and a good example of how these films actually work pretty well as parodies even if the hanky-panky bits are cut.
-->'''Captain:''' (''escorting the hot alien chick around the ship'') As you can see, the rumors that we just walk through the exact same corridor over and over just to make it look like a bigger ship are completely false.
** ''Sex Trek'' actully has better special effects and a more coherent plot than the original.
* The ShowWithinAShow of ''Film/BoogieNights'' is the director's attempt to make a movie so compelling that his audience won't leave when they're "finished".
* The ShowWithinAShow of Creator/BlakeEdwards' ''Film/{{SOB}}'' is a softcore version. We don't get to see much of the actual ''sex'' (since ''S.O.B.'' is rated R), but we ''do'' (briefly) get to see Creator/JulieAndrews' boobies[[note]]as her character refers to them after being given a sedative to calm her jitters[[/note]]. In-universe, she's doing the show in an attempt to break from her wholesome-girl typecasting; apparently she's basically playing herself.
* ''Alien Sex Files 3: She Alien'', starring Jenae Alt, features a woman who is really an advance scout for an AlienInvasion. She sides with the human race after experiencing sex and love. The ending is also pure SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome.
* The short documentary ''Hard Fat'' is a legitimate documentary about the gaining fetish (also known as feederism), the legitimate parts of which are inter-spliced with fetish appeal for those who have said fetish.
* Nobody ''ever'' watches ''Film/BasicInstinct'' for the plot. (Something about a murder investigation, right? In fact, if the director had wanted to change it so that Kate was ''not'' the killer, all he'd have had to do was change the final scene so that the ice pick was not there.) Sharon Stone herself all but admitted to Creator/ConanOBrien that [[http://www.moviefone.com/2013/08/08/sharon-stone-basic-instinct-leg-cross-scene-conan/ the draw is pretty much one specific scene.]]
* ''Film/InTheRealmOfTheSenses'' may be one of the most notorious examples of this, although many of the sex scenes are arguably more nightmarish than erotic.
* In a very sick and twisted way, {{exploitation film}}s ''Film/TheSinfulDwarf'' and ''Film/ThrillerACruelPicture'' would both qualify. Same goes for films that deal with the more disturbing paraphilias, like ''Film/{{Nekromantik}}'', ''Film/SlaughteredVomitDolls'' or ''Feed''.
* Surprisingly, ''Film/{{Showgirls}}'' was supposed to be this... It... fell a little short of their dreams.
* There is a porn parody of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' simple titled ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Scooby-Doo a XXX Parody]]'', which doesn't include the eponymous dog (thanks God, [[BestialityIsDepraved that could have only ended up badly]]). What's weird about this movie is how PERFECTLY they managed to capture the whole essence of the show. Not only each porn actor plays their roles accordingly to the characters, but they even resemble them physically! The plot is nothing unlike the original ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' series' episode, and they [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome even run through different doors while escaping at one point]].
** There is a ''{{Series/Batman}}'' parody in the same series with a similar eye for detail. They even went so far as to have the actor playing ComicBook/TheJoker grow a mustache in emulation of Caesar Romero.
** In similar vein, ''Tarzan, A Gay Parody'' has many MythologyGag to the franchise (ex: Tarzan's iconic roar, "Me, Tarzan, you X" etc.), beautiful scenary shots and a passable story about a couple and their friend got stranded on the island that Tarzan is on. The sex is even factored into the ending in which [[spoiler:the friend stays on the island]].
* Sometimes the real movies could learn a thing or two from the porn parodies. [[http://io9.com/who-has-the-best-live-action-wonder-woman-outfit-the-w-458956801 This article]] mentions how the porn version of Franchise/WonderWoman's costume looked infinitely better than the version from the failed [[Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot 2011 TV pilot]] (aside from being even ''more'' {{Stripperific}} than normal). They also mention how depressing it is that the porn studio has beaten the film studio to the punch on both a ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' and ''Film/{{Wonder Woman|2017}}'' movie while DC and WB didn't get those projects off the ground until 2017.
* ''Film/{{Emmanuelle}}'' and its various sequels and reimaginings like the ''Emmanuelle in Space'' and ''Emmanuelle Through Time'' series. ''Emmanuelle in Wonderland'' is a musical. One film featured the title character trying to help out a poor guy who mistook a one-night-stand for true love and was about to get his heart broken. Another featured the cast having a deep discussion about the portrayal of VampiresAreSexGods in the media.
* ''Film/TheDreamers'', in which a guy gets into a relationship with a brother-sister duo amidst the May 1968 events in France.
* ''Deep in the Valley'', where two friends (one a NiceGuy and the other a porn-obsessed pervert) get [[TrappedInTVLand sent into a porno]]. It's funny and deconstructs some porn stereotypes. Also, one of the girls in the porno is tired of meaningless sex and wants to experience true love.
* ''Virtual Girl'' (1998). A man enters virtual reality and has a tryst with a simulated woman. He tries to break off the relationship, but she turns out to be: sentient, a {{Yandere}}, and can affect the real world.
* ''Virtual Vegas'' (2001). A woman creates a virtual reality system for sex with simulated people. Her CorruptCorporateExecutive boss fires her so he can keep the profits for himself, then hires thugs to try to kill her. The woman warns that the device needs to be properly tested before it is marketed, which is proven when one guy who uses it goes into a coma. Also, a guy who uses it gets chewed out by his girlfriend for cheating on her, which he tries to claim that it's not cheating because the women are not real.
* ''Film/RoomInRome'', in which a woman from Spain and a woman from Russia meet in Rome and have a one-night stand. The women discuss art, literature, and their lives, but it soon becomes clear that one or both is lying.
* ''The Libertine'' (1968) is not rated because it was made at towards the very end of the Hays-code era but before there was an X rating. It's about a young widow who discovers that her recently deceased husband was cheating on her and filming his escapades. Much of the plot involves her exploring her own sexuality. You are also shown bits and pieces of what her deceased husband did in the form of black-and-white home movies. Edit out the very little full frontal nudity that you see and it would probably get an R rating today.
* ''Film/TheStoryOfO'', in which a woman is turned into a SexSlave and comes to enjoy it.
* ''Wasteland'' is a surprisingly sad girl-on-girl flick about a young woman who tries to reconnect with her high-school girlfriend, only to learn that said girlfriend is more interested in guys. While there is considerable amounts of sex, both straight and lesbian, the bulk of the story is about the main character coming to terms with the fact that she can't rekindle a relationship that ended so long ago.
* ''Film/TheRoom'' manages to cross this over with IkeaErotica, believe it or not. Porn with a very convoluted plot too. Was there really need for the sex scenes to be 5 minutes long? No.
* Bruce [=LaBruce=] zig-zag between straightforward pornographic flicks and actual films with pornographic scenes. ''Film/OttoOrUpWithDeadPeople'' follows a somewhat direct story telling -if a bit [[LeFilmArtistique artsy]]- but includes inserts of hardcore pornographic scenes in between.
* The first movie in the ''Where The Boys Aren't'' series has a surprisingly elaborate plot about a porn director trying to get his staff together and (fruitlessly) getting some actual male actors so the movie won't have to be girls-only. (Which is what the series is all about, as the title suggests.) He also has to struggle with his writer, who won't write girls-only scenes and refuses to compromise his "art".
* The ''Film/ConfessionsOfA'' series were definitely this with the subplots of the protagonist's relatives and their personal problems, as well as the build-ups towards the sex itself.
* ''Nymphomaniac'' tells the story of a woman who tells the AudienceSurrogate how her sex addiction led to her current life situation, and in doing so, features some very explicit (hardcore) sex scenes.
* ''The Horseman'' is a surprisingly romantic guy-on-guy porno about a married guy who falls in love with his farmhand. The porno even bothers to feature female characters and even a subplot acting as a {{Foil}} for the main plot about two friends who slept together after one of them broke up from a dysfunctional relationship. The characters all have good chemistry together, ''especially'' in the subplot.

* Laurell K Hamilton's ''Literature/AnitaBlake'' Series started as an urban fantasy series and then turned into plot with porn... and then turned into porn... and has apparently started to move back to plot with porn but most fans haven't gone back to check.
* Parodied in Creator/JohnVarley's ''Literature/TheGoldenGlobe'', set in a FreeLoveFuture where the audience expects graphic sex scenes in all media, leading to the actor protagonist performing a very... interesting... version of the balcony scene from Shakespeare's ''Romeo and Juliet''.
* Jean M. Auel's ''Literature/EarthsChildren'' series, from the second book onwards. Or from halfway through first book if you accept RapeAsDrama as porn. Though only one scene was described (possibly two, but the second one didn't last because the man wasn't interested). ''The Plains of Passage'' was really bad for this, though -- it had little enough plot to begin with, so to pad it out, there were one or more sex scenes per chapter.
* Anything written by J.R. Ward, especially her ''Literature/BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' series; pushes the boundaries emotionally ''and'' sexually.
* ''Literature/TheJournalEntries'' by Elf Sternberg is a very long series of furry sci-fi stories, ranging from [[PornWithoutPlot barely fleshed out]] (though it gets better if you know the characters) to heavy philosophical commentary.
* ''Literature/AFoxTail'' manages to devote at least 300 pages to a story about a hacker unleashing a hostile AI on the internet, the government's attempts to eliminate and/or recruit him, and the AI in question attempting to kill its creator. Still has quite a bit of gay sex though.
* ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', a trilogy of novels about a college student who falls in love with a billionaire. The books are also notorious for describing their BDSM intercourse in great detail.
* ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' stars Phèdre nó Delaunay de Montrève, a noble spy who was born a "perfect sub" in an alternative medieval France. Cue lots of BDSM woven into the plot.
* The collective works of Creator/MarquisDeSade (of Sadism fame), although they are less Porn with Plot so much as Porn with Continental Individualist Philosophy.
* The ''Longarm'' series of westerns: a plot that would be right in place in a Zane Grey novel, then explicit sex, then back to the cowboy story. This pattern repeats several times over the course of each novel.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Creator/SpikeTV used to show "Porn Masterpiece Theater" which consisted of cutting all the sex from porn movies to chop them down to 30 minute short stories.
* ''Forbidden Science'', a show on late night Creator/{{Cinemax}} that has a very intricate science fiction plot, with lots of (fairly softcore) sex scenes.
* Ditto ''Lingerie'', by the same authors and on the same network.
* Also, ''Co-ed Confidential'' is a college comedy with lots of sex scenes. [[RunningGag Also on Cinemax.]]
* You know what? Let's just say Creator/{{Cinemax}} in general before this page gets [[JustForPun too long]]. There's a reason the FanNickname is "Skinemax". A lot of their content is BMovie material that can often be quite hilarious for its campiness.
* Showtime's softcore erotic anthology drama, ''Bliss''. Pick a diversity...any diversity! Bliss has probably covered it. There was also enough plot it was able to be shown edited on basic cable channel Oxygen with a TV-14 rating.
* Short-lived HBO series ''Tell Me You Love Me'' epitomized this trope; mainly dealing with the characters' sex lives and crises within those sex lives, each episode had a ''buttload'' of sex scenes, with graphic depictions of both female and male genitalia. The sex scenes did [[JustifiedTrope serve a purpose]], though.
* The American verion of ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', while soft core, probably didn't have a single episode that was safe for work.
* ''Femme Fatales'', a GambitPileup of murderers, thieves, adulterers, etc. with lots of sex scenes and nudity. This show also has continuity despite being an {{anthology}}, with several episodes being sequels or prequels of others, or [[HeroOfAnotherStory scenes and characters from one episode showing up in another]]. Episodes include:
** "Behind Locked Doors": A spoiled Music/LindsayLohan-esque celebrity struggles to survive when she's sent to prison.
** "Bad Medicine": A criminal breaks into a hospital during the night-shift and takes a nurse hostage.
** "Something Like Murder": A TrophyWife has an affair with her female masseuse, and together they plot to kill her husband and take his money.

** "Hell Hath No Furies": The lover of a ruthless drug lord is jailed and interrogated. Suddenly, three alluring but incredibly deadly women lay siege to the police station, slaughtering anyone in their path.
** "Libra": A woman becomes a masked vigilante and declares war on the mob.
* ''The Erotic Traveler'', where an art collector would tell her apprentice erotic tales of each art piece's history. For example, telling about a mask used in BDSM games, or an artist or sculptor having an affair with the model.
* ''Series/LostGirl'' uses sex as a crucial ''plot device''; the lead succubus character Bo uses sex as a means of healing [[spoiler:after an injection given to take the edge off her need to kill to feed results in her losing her self-healing properties.]]
* ''Series/TrueBlood'', an awesome, action-packed adaptation of ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'' with explicit gay, lesbian, bi, and hetero sex scenes while dealing with FantasticRacism between vampires, werewolves, humans, shapeshifters, maenads, witches, and fairies.
* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'', its prequel, ''Spartacus: Gods of the Arena'', and its sequels, ''Spartacus: Vengeance'' and ''Spartacus: War of the Damned''. It's an incredible adaptation of the events around the legendary GladiatorRevolt, with ''lots'' of explicit gay, lesbian, bi, and hetero sex scenes.
* Several episodes of ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' have nudity and sex, usually to explore the implications of sci-fi stuff like [[{{Robosexual}} robot companions]]. These include:
** "Valerie 23": A man gets a RobotGirl as a companion. After they inevitably have sex, she becomes a {{Yandere}} after he tries to date his therapist.
** "Caught In The Act": A woman (Creator/AlyssaMilano) gets possessed by an alien. She seduces men, then [[OutWithABang consumes them after sex]].

** "Mary 25": A sequel to "Valerie 23". Although the robot company was disgraced by the Valerie 23 incident, they assure people that [[TemptingFate they've worked the bugs out of their other models]]. A robot girl is hired as a nanny and maid for a family.
** "Flower Child": An [[PlantAliens alien plant]] takes human form and seduces men.
** "Lithia": A soldier is awakened from cryogenic stasis to find that he is the only man in a world ruled by women.
** The episodes ''Caught in the Act'', ''Bits of Love'', ''Valerie 23'', ''The Human Operators'', and ''Flower Child'' were packaged in a DVD collection titled ''The Outer Limits - Sex & Science Fiction Collection''
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' deserves a mention at least from the opinions of critics who coined the phrase "Main/{{Sexposition}}" to refer to how the plot and characters get advanced through dialog during sex scenes. For bonus points, [[FanServiceExtra the day job of the extras working as prostitutes in the show's brothels, is pornstar.]] In general though, this reputation is highly exaggerated, since it focuses far more on political scheming and warfare.
* ''Series/MastersOfSex'' has even more ExplicitContent than ''Series/GameOfThrones'', but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awards_and_nominations_received_by_Masters_of_Sex given critics' response]] it's clearly doing something right.
* InUniverse in ''Series/BarneyMiller'' when Harris is commissioned by the NYPD to produce a porn movie in order for them to get a handle on how the porn business works. When he screens ''Four Women'' ("''Two'' and ''Three'' were taken!") for the squad, it takes an hour to get to the sex scene.

[[folder: Manhwa]]
* ''Sweet Guy'' doesn't even try to hide its pornographic and downright ridiculous plot (a nerdy boy gets electrocuted by a faulty machine and gains the ability to make anyone feel good by just touching him), but as time goes on, his love interests gain emotional depth and even fall in love with the MC, he starts to become better at sex and gain confidence, more side characters are brought in and a subplot is introduced about a corrupt company discovering his ability and their efforts to get further research on it.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues''. Pull every sex scene, it is still a pretty good story.
* ''VideoGame/TheBastardOfKosigan'' has several sex scenes (because of game limitations, they consist in explicit textual descriptions, with naked characters standing there), but they are all optional (those who actually are relevant to the plot or a quest provide a dialog option to skip the sexual part) and the story doesn't lose anything without them.
* It is worth mentioning that not all Eroge are visual novels; ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'' is a good example of a turn-based strategy game with erotic content, good gameplay ''and'' a good plot.
* Escu:de has done a few intriguing stories with simple yet fun gameplay. ''Eiyuu X Maou'', about a demon overlord bent on domination of a HumansAreBastards world. ''Primaveil Zwei'' begins as a sailor-senshi/super-sentai parody that becomes progressively more character driven, deconstructive, and original.
* The Platformer/Adventure game ''[[http://www.patreon.com/futurefragments Future Fragments]]'' has a boatload of plot and storyline, boasting 25 pages of text, multiple cutscenes with plot, and pages of universe building, and that's just the demo! The creator says that by the game's completion, well over 50 cutscenes will be in the game, as well as over 100 pages of storyline, dialogue, and so forth, with multiple endings as well. (The creators also have a Wiki/TVTropes page at ''VideoGame/FutureFragments'', too.)
* The UsefulNotes/PC98 game ''Night Slave'' had side-scrolling action interspersed with some lesbian bondage.
* ''[[http://www.sakuraprin.com/img/aba/index.html Fukai ni Nemuru Oujo no Abaddon]]'', a {{Retraux}} horror RPG with a very engaging (if not [[{{Gorn}} gory]]) plot. It also happens to have sex scenes with [[BiTheWay every member of your team]], so the sex content has a wide variety of pairings.
* The ''Rance'' series of games by Creator/AliceSoft. While heavy in debauchery, the gameplay is surprisingly decent and the plots get very heavy.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* The eroge by Alcot ''VisualNovel/MyGirlfriendIsThePresident'' takes this to an interesting level, with the hilarious characters and deeply moving story, most people tend to skip the soft-core sex scenes so they can get on with the plot.
* Pretty much any eroge in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}, especially, ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', to the extent that they made versions [[BleachedUnderpants without the porn]], though the fandom quite likes the [[MagiBabble hilarious]] [[DeusSexMachina efforts]] that went into fitting the porn into the story. The two mentioned works provide different sort of examples of this. In ''Tsukihime'', the story is very plot-heavy but more focused on romance than ''Fate'', and thus the sex scenes tend to fit into the plot naturally and tend to be part of it without being the point. In ''Fate'', this trope applies in a sense that the sexual content is such a small part of the game that it could be removed very easily and it would make little to no difference at all. This was done in the [=PS2=] re release and the anime adaptations.
* ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'', ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' and ''Tomoyo After''. ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}},'' ''Planetarian'' and the original version of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' are the only Key works that do not have porn. Since ''Little Busters Ecstasy'' is just ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' with porn, ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' would count as porn with plot also.
** Not entirely true. ''Little Busters Ecstasy'' has three additional routes. Also the Key game Rewrite doesn't have porn either.
* ''Creator/{{Nitroplus}}'' is pretty good at this. ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' is impossible to forget, even during the H-scenes, that this is a horror story. ''VisualNovel/{{Demonbane}}'' got [=PS2=] port and anime adaption [[BleachedUnderpants without the porn]], and its sequel is mech action game, without porn either.
* ''VisualNovel/KanaLittleSister'' is well-known for being an [[TearJerker emotionally ravaging]] love story with an ending that is... bittersweet at best.
* ''VisualNovel/CrescendoEienDatoOmotteItaAnoKoro'' gives us quite the ComingOfAge story not just for main character Ryo, but for several of his potential love interests. [[StepfordSmiler Yuka]] and [[ParentalAbandonment Kyoko]] are particularly interesting examples.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Morenatsu}}'' is this, but it's a little bit confusing. The characters don't have sex until the end of a characters route (provided you made the right choices and didn't accidentally get a bad ending.) Until then, you basically hang out with a character while you learn more about them, like about their DarkAndTroubledPast or some something they need help with.
* ''VisualNovel/PrivateNurse'' -- MagicalGirl, HealingHands, ChildhoodMarriagePromise love story... sort of. It ranks up there with ''Kana Little Sister'' in terms of drama and story over sex and, depending on gameplay, can result in either CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming or a near-tragic BittersweetEnding.
* ''Yume Miru Kusuri: A Drug That Makes You Dream'' -- Another epic eroge deserving of recognition for being more than just an H-game. Dark, dramatic...
* ''VisualNovel/{{Edelweiss}}'' -- particularly Black Cat path, though White Cat path is also story - heavy. Black Cat path is so trippy, convoluted -- and altogether FUN that you forget what genre you're in.
* ''VisualNovel/ToukaGettan'' is this. Likewise, ''VisualNovel/YamiToBoushiToHonNoTabibito''. It should be mentioned that it and ''Tōka Gettan'' were adapted into [[BleachedUnderpants "normal" anime series]].
* ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' is a (free, high-quality) visual novel eroge where the romantic and pornographic sections are inseparable from the in-depth characterisation and thoughtful exploration of the lives of teenagers dealing with their disabilities. The sexual scenes can be skipped, but you would miss on important plot and character points.
* The short otome game ''[[http://sugarscript.tumblr.com/post/126774226834/ Cute Demon Crashers]]'' is less Porn with Plot and more Porn with Character Focus. The protagonist is offered to have [[TheirFirstTime Her First Time]] with one of four [[HornyDevils sex demons]], and it's less about the sex itself and more about her bonding with these strange people and becoming comfortable enough with them (and with herself) to actually go through with it. Consent and communication is treated as the most important thing, with once scene detailing SafeSaneAndConsensual, and options to stop at any time during the sex scenes or even to reject the offers entirely.
* ''Monster Girl Quest''. Despite the AudienceAlienatingPremise (it no longer has a page), its story is quite deep and engaging, certainly much more so than an average ExcusePlot that you'd normally expect a game of its type to have, delving into topics such as FantasticRacism, among other things, and even features a bit of humor as well. It's also one of these games where you are supposed to avoid the actual porn for the most part (lose against a monster girl and you get raped, resulting in a GameOver).
* Similarly, ''Kyonyuu Fantasy''[[labelnote:Translation]]Literally "[[WorldOfBuxom Funbag]] Fantasy".[[/labelnote]] centers around [[TheUnchosenOne the worst knight in his class]] wooing a bevy of busty beauties, but all against the backdrop of uncovering ([[TheFool and subsequently foiling]]) a plot to remove the current King from his throne and reinstate a hereditary monarchy rather than the newly-formed meritocracy, all with plenty of humor and clever writing where the main character is a ChivalrousPervert but also a FatherToHisMen, and fully willing to look at someone's intent [[DefeatMeansFriendship more than their actions]].
* Age is also very good at creating these kinds of stories. Perhaps the best example of their PornWithPlot work would be ''VisualNovel/RumblingHearts'', a romantic drama that goes out of its way to examine and deconstruct common tropes found in the genre. Their other flagship franchise, ''Franchise/MuvLuv'', starts of as an intentionally light-hearted and somewhat generic harem H-game, before veering off into a post-apocalyptic military drama set in an AlternateUniverse, wherein the sex starts being played for FanDisservice at times.
* Three (in)famous games by [=ClockUp=], in the following release order: ''Euphoria'', ''[[SophomoreSlump Fraternite]]'', and ''Maggot Baits''. Both have ''lots'' of hardcore (but sometimes vanilla) sex scenes (and in ''[[MeaningfulName Maggot Baits]]''' case, ''lots'' of {{Gorn}}), but reviewers have said (especially for ''Euphoria'') that even if you take away the sex, you'll still have amazing writing with Hamashima Shigeo's gorgeous artwork.
* ''VisualNovel/ThreeSistersStory'' has a pretty engaging story, and the porn is good. It's only the tedious gameplay that bogs it down.
* ''VisualNovel/ExtracurricularActivities'' is a {{Furry}} slice-of-life visual novel where you fall in love with one of the members of your tennis team. Outside of its [[ViscualNovel/{{Morenatsu}} obvious comparison,]] there's a LOT more sex involved, but just has just as much touching backstory and cute moments.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Creator/JayNaylor's "pornfolios".
* ''Tally Road'' cannot seem to have an explicit sex scene without huge plot consequences. When things get really hot and heavy, there is inevitably some sort of other shoe to drop. It's so PornWithPlot-tastic it has to be intentional. Anathema really deserves special mention due to about the same if not more time being spent on plot as there is on porn and some very extensive world building as well.
* '''♥''' ([[SayItWithHearts not sure how you pronounce that]]) is a FurryComic on [=FurAffinity=]. There are plenty of really, ''really'' hardcore fetish scenes, but they're handled with surprising amounts of depth. It's hard to find with a search engine, so [[http://www.furaffinity.net/user/reiger here]]. This comic is described as "It WILL offend you at some point. Please let me [the author] know when it does." At the beginning it was just a "fetish of the day", but it really does have an interesting story. Granted, it'd be a lot shorter without all the fetish scenes...
* ''Webcomic/{{Profiles}}'', a gay web comic on [=FurAffinity=].
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' relates to the trope in several ways.
** In general, the comic is somewhat erotic, while definitely having a plot (or rather, multiple ongoing plots). However, while there are lots of scenes involving sex, it's usually just a single panel or strip played for laughs; people, say, walk in on couples and HilarityEnsues. The comic is also noted for its profuse nudity (although this is never full frontal); characters get naked leading up to and after the sex scenes, to the point where every major character has had at least one sex scene and has been visibly naked.[[note]]In fact, the creators have cut back on the nudity in recent strips, as they were suffering serious problems with loss of advertising revenue every time they showed a nipple. Funnily enough, they still include plenty of sex scenes -- just with more use of the ModestyBedsheet and careful viewing angles. It appears that the MoralGuardians have [[NippleAndDimed rather simplistic criteria]].[[/note]]
** The trope is also [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/cheesy_scripts discussed by characters Zii and Gary,]] who agree on preferring porn with plots.
** And there are also glimpses of the past career of Amber, an ex-porn actress (of whom Gary is a fan) whose work seems to have had some plots, if only to support the jokes made about it by the comic.
* Werewolf series ''Webcomic/PeterIsTheWolf'', to the extent that the main page asks whether you want the PG-13 version or the X-rated version. While the censored version can stand alone as a fairly entertaining read, there is character development lurking in the sex scenes.
* Though it's never shown, Rick of ''Webcomic/BlurTheLines'' discusses his plans to make an X-Tube video that is also [[http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=384 a social commentary on the BP oil spill.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' started out as an attempt to make porn, but degenerated into sex comedy pretty much immediately. It still alternates between sexy and hilarious.
* ''Webcomic/{{Curvy}}'' is this trope, ''big time'', focusing as much on the complicated relationship between [[EthicalSlut Fauna]] and [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Anaïs]], and the absurdity comedy of the [[PlanetOfHats absurd worlds]] they visit as on the actual sex.
* ''Webcomic/{{Chimneyspeak}}'' features a lot of explicit sexual content, in the midst of a story about an international cast of ne'er-do-wells plotting bloody revenge on each other.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'', a S/M webcomic. It is a sweet, yet erotic story of two women taking a huge chance on exploring their fantasies with each other (with a hint of evolving into something more). It is well-written, covers the psychology and ideas behind their S/M play, and explores the emotional highs/lows of such a relationship. However, the artist is releasing the series OutOfOrder, not in chronological order.
* There's an ongoing series by porn artist Lemonfont about [[http://lemonfontcomics.com/SS_archive.htm a shapeshifter with an exhibitionism fetish]] (named, appropriately enough, ''Shapeshifter'') that would be your typical fetish fuel material if it weren't for the fact that the main character and her unseen "boyfriend" are written with enough wit and character depth to qualify for this page.
* Brazilian website Seiren has a lot of porn comics with plot, often serialized, and including parodies (such as Sex-Men, Fuckercats and Chickens of Prey) and experiments such as conveying a story with no dialogue or sound effects. One story, a HighFantasy story where two criminals go to a magic land and have much sex there, was even pulled off the site because it was LeftHanging, and the [[AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder oft-busy author]] is not willing to put it online without making more chapters to provide closure.
* [=InCase=]'s ''Webcomic/{{Alfie}}'' switches back and forth between porn and the viewpoints of the titular character and her mother Vera, examining their distaste for their lives at current and their ways of dealing with it.
* ''Brogulls'', which is a homosexual incest story about an anthropomorphic seagull who is in love with his older, more bulkier brother. The comic balances out "porn" and "plot" really well, with more emphasis on the plot that manages to sway into porn without feeling completely shoehorned.
* ''Study Partners'' is yet another FurryComic that has quite a lot of emotional depth and character focus to it. The comic come off as sort of a ComingOfAge type of story that's so far divided into three chapters that focus on individual characters: Chapter 1 focuses on a Donkey named Jennifer whose treated as an [[AllTheOtherReindeer outclass by the rest of her peers]] save for her LoveInterest Woody, a horse, and a few friends. Chapter 2 focuses mostly on Jennifer's two close friends Lisa and Sarah, a Beaver and Otter respectively who are also a bisexual couple, and their relationship together. Chapter 3 focuses on Woody's friend Ragdoll, an elephant, and his relationship with an alligator named Angie, who has a mutual crush on him. The porn is heavily balanced with the plot, happening only when called for (such as in chapter 1, when Jennifer and Woody decide to have sex after becoming an OfficialCouple).

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''It's Always Time'' is an Erotic Farce, centered in the Epic traditions and thoroughly steeped in [[ImageBoards image board]] culture to boot. Needless to say, the porn present is weird and frequent.
* ''Corruption Of Champions'' or ''C.o.C.'', an online text based flash game, is this. While there is certainly no absence of sexual content or fetishes, with near every single NPC having at least one sex scene (usually more, vendors and enemies included) the game as a whole has a fantasy plot and an ongoing narrative, both overarching and smaller development stories for certain characters.
** ''Corruption of Champions'' has sister game called ''Trials in Tainted Space'' or ''[[FunWithAcronyms T.I.T.S.]]'', a SpaceOpera where the son/daughter of a rich BoldExplorer goes on a InterplanetaryVoyage to explore new worlds and species and [[BoldlyComing bang them]], all the while trying to beat their {{Jerkass}} cousin for the company inheritance and your father's legacy.
* ''Literature/TalesOfMu'' skirted into this territory for roughly half of the first "year" of the story; the sexual content has drastically decreased in the second "year" but still [[{{Pun}} comes up]] every now and then.
* Stories put on actual erotica sites:
** ''Six Times a Day'' is about a young man who is (falsely) told that he must orgasm six times a day as a medical treatment for lack of energy. It's currently in its 79th part (each part typically contains 5-8 chapters apiece), and is clocking in at over 3 ''Million'' words at the moment. So yea - PornWithPlot.
** ''Literature/TheWulfArchives'' were specifically created with this trope in mind. The writer, Anthony Pryor, was repelled at how badly written most of the content in alt.sex.stories and wanted to show you can have sexually explicit stories that are well written. For instance, in the first posted story, "Heart of the Lion," the first major section is a wild [[HeroicFantasy Swords and Sorcery]] version of the famous Battle of Isandlwana.
** ''The Black Pearl of Pharazion'' is a functional Swords And Sorcery adventure novel with the sex at the centre of the plot.
** ''Summer Camp'' by Nick Scipio takes the classic ComingOfAgeStory, drops it into a nudist camp, throws in a lot of sex and [[{{Polyamory}} swinging]], and goes to town. It eventually hit full-on CerebusSyndrome, aided by a FramingDevice in which the narrator hears from his wife that a woman of his acquaintence has just died, with the story being a ([[DoorStopper 120-chapter]]) flashback to his adventures with this PosthumousCharacter. We also don't know who the wife is, as if ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' were an X-rated drama instead of a sitcom. (It has also hit full-on ScheduleSlip, having recently gone 364 days without an update, but at least that gives you plenty of time for an ArchiveBinge.)
** ''Melissa 2.0'', catering to the BreastExpansion contingent, about a normal-looking MIT student who develops some body-modding technology. She has a lot of fun, but it takes a turn for the worse when the government finds out. ''Much'' worse.
** ''Two Dashes of Mid-Summer'' manages to have considerable plot in relation to its sex. Somehow, this makes it an even better read.
** Online author Al Steiner has written several novel-length stories that feature well-developed characters and intriguing situations in addition to having explicit sex scenes. Some of his better-known stories include ''Intemperence'', which is about the behind-the-scenes life of a fictional 1980s rock band; ''Doing It All Over'', a PeggySue story tat single-handedly popularized the plot as a vehicle for sex; ''Aftermath'', a post-apocalyptic tale that focuses on a community of survivors following Earth being hit by a meteor, and; ''A Perfect World'', a science-fiction story about a HumanPopsicle who was frozen following a deadly injury and awakens hundreds of years in the future.
* Website/{{Literotica}} is devoted to user-generated content of this nature, albeit with heavy screening to avoid SturgeonsLaw.
** ''Website/WritingDotCom'' is in the same boat with its single stories and [[ChooseYourOwnAdventure interactives]], but due to the latter's ability to have new chapters added by members it can range from well thought out additions that push the plot along (with or without sex scenes), to being the worst thing SturgeonsLaw has to offer.
* While the "Naked in School" universe originated as PornWithoutPlot and has seen plenty of that over the years, there are also a number of authors who've used it as a powerful vehicle for examining teenage romance, angst, and even the nature of celebrity. It's developed into a shared universe with over a decade of content and its own website.
