    Yes. The use of the word porn is descriptive of how people really love 'drama' -it's more like a slang term not a genuine or literal explanation. Like a PP said earlier in the thread 'food porn' is beautiful photos of food that make you hungry.

    Yeah probably because they've become so popular that it's become a legitimate genre - sorry I've missed a lot of the thread tbh and I don't think I agree with labelling them that, I think 'high level graphic violence' or whatever they call it is sufficient and 'torture porn' is the slang version of that. Sorry if I've gone around in circles, it's a long thread to catch up on.

    The whole term 'torture porn' in this context of labelling movies is sensationalist and/or a marketing tool I think.

    I nearly spat my food out child porn. Very interesting twist. Didn't think of it like that.

    Very good points.

    If you hire the first grader, I think there may be r@pe scenes. I can't remember. I tried to block parts of that movie out

    Ok, I'll spell it out. Do you see his penis entering her vagina repeatedly? I mean explicit shots focussed on all the rude bits. Do you see other graphic sex acts up close? Is the entire movie focused on these sex acts or on a storyline where yes, sex is a part of the story but not the main plot (ie, that the man has testicular cancer and needs to reproduce before treatment prevents him having kids)
    Sex can be a big part of a movie without being a porno. I don't doubt the movie you are talking about has strong sex scenes like what you have described. But there is still a difference between that and actual porn. The main one being that porn is two or more people actually having sex and this is shown in graphic detail. It's real sex. In a movie, it's simulated, it's not real sex and you don't see graphic detail. Graphic detail can be suggested or implied quite strongly but you are not actually seeing it.
    I'm not grasping at straws, you just don't seem to understand the rather large difference between movie sex and sex in pornography.

    I can find anything about actually classifying these films as Torture Porn at your local video store or labelling them as such. When I google I can find info on Torture Porn as a niche genre or type of film. The term has been around a few years and the movies for many years. I don't think they are actually going to label them.

    You said it yourself here- you don't see his penis. In actual porn, you'd see his penis more than his face!!

    Technically, yes, you could call them porn and not be wrong.
