->'''Jesus:''' This film is very low-quality. There's no story.
->'''Buck:''' It's a fuck movie. I don't watch a fuck movie for the story. I watch a fuck movie to see fuckin'.
-->--''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'' ''2: Texas Blood Money''

As "PWP", a shorthand flag for stories whose sole purpose is to present a sexually-explicit situation ([[SturgeonsLaw very often]] not very [[IKEAErotica well-written]]); "stroke story" is another term for the same, especially in erotica. A PWP is almost always a short story, as going more than a few scenes runs the risk of accidentally discovering a plot which may well [[PlotTumor take over the story]] and shove the explicit sexual content off to the side.

However there exist many multichapter PWP fanfics written with the intention of cramming as many explicit sex scenes in as possible - some of these end up discovering a (gasp!) plot, with the sex subsiding and then happening only every ''other'' chapter, [[SarcasmMode which rather spoils the whole experience.]]

[=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.

Obviously deals with UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}}. See also {{Lemon}}, SlashFic, {{Doujinshi}}, SummerBlockbuster, ExcusePlot, {{Yaoi}} (in its original Japanese meaning). Contrast PornWithPlot and ExplicitContent.

Compare NoPlotNoProblem for non-pornographic version of this trope.

!! References to this trope:

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Interestingly, this is where the word "{{Yaoi}}" comes from. It was originally used to refer to plotless gay erotica, and was an abbreviation of "'''ya'''ma nashi, '''o'''chi nashi, '''i'''mi nashi" (no plot, no point, no meaning), and rapidly spread in usage from there. Male/male romance in general is [[InsistentTerminology more properly referred to as]] the Boys' Love Genre, [[BleachedUnderpants for reasons that]] [[PornWithPlot should be obvious]].

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]

* 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).

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* Drew Carey lampshades this in one episode of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', comparing [[ThePointsMeanNothing points]] to the plot in a porno.
* In one episode of ''Series/{{Coupling}}'', Steve feels compelled to defend pornogr- ''erotica'';
-->'''Steve:''' What makes [[PornWithPlot an erotic film]] different from pornography?\\
'''Susan:''' A plot you can't summarise in diagrams!

[[AC:{{Magazines}}]]
* ''{{Magazine/MAD}}'' lists "the plot to a porn movie" in their article "Do You Really Need to Know..."

[[AC:{{Webcomics}}]]
* ''Webcomic/BlurTheLines'' [[ConversationalTroping converses]] about this trope before moving into an [[DiscussedTrope in-universe]] [[http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=176 discussion]].
--> '''Rick:''' Porno could be so much more in the right hands... but it's mainly just, "Whoops, wrong door! Let's fuck!"
--> '''Drew:''' How about we make our own porn? Want to lick this spoon clean, or lick it off of me?
--> '''Rick:''' So, this would be a porn where I'm picking body hair out of my teeth for a half-hour? [[SarcasmMode Yeah, there's a plot.]]
* 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).
