Nazisploitation (also called Nazi exploitation) is a subgenre of the Exploitation Film and Sexploitation film that centers around Those Wacky Nazis committing horrific sexual acts as overseers of prisons or camps during World War II. Most follow the women in prison formula, relocated to a death camp or Nazi brothel, with a particular focus on gore, sadomasochism, and degradation. The genre also found its way into Pulp Magazines.

Related is the short-lived genre of stalag fiction, which were pornographic dime novels on similar themes very briefly popular in Israel of all places, before being banned by the government. This was around the time of Adolf Eichmann's trial.
