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

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'').

PWP is an acronym that stands for Porn Without Plot. It's a shorthand flag for stories whose sole purpose is to present a sexually-explicit situation ([[SturgeonsLaw very often]] [[TheoremOfNarrowInterests not very]] [[IKEAErotica well-written]]); "[[ADateWithRosiePalms 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 risks accidentally discovering a plot which may well [[PlotTumor take over the story]], change it to PornWithPlot, and even shove the explicit sexual content off to the side.

* 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]]. ''OtokonokoGenre'' is also distinct from {{Yaoi}}, because the former is directed at men (themselves crossdressers, or not, doesn't really matter), while the latter is for women. Otokono genre stories can be anything from cute crossdresser-with-guy (or sometimes girl) romantic comedy, to more {{Ecchi}}, to this trope.
