The Top 3 Adult Sex Movie Categories
Adult movie companies produce thousands of new adult movie titles yearly. One adult movie industry source estimates that 20,000 adult movies are made in the United States alone. This makes adult movies the largest film industry segment. Out of those thousands of adult movie titles, most adult movies fit one of three basic categories: feature, all sex or compilation adult movies.
Feature Adult Movies
If you’re hunting for your first adult movie or looking for an adult movie to watch with your significant other, then you should definitely check out feature adult movies. Adult features movies are essentially sex with a plot though you shouldn't set your expectations too high because plot quality in these adult movies varies greatly. Some of the best feature movies can rival some Hollywood films, while the plot in other adult movies can be confusing and packed with pizza delivery clichés.
Another distinguishing feature for these adult movies is that features contain the adult movie industry’s biggest stars – adult movie goddesses like Jenna Jameson, Carmen Luvana, Tera Patrick, Kayden Kross and Bree Olson. These adult stars usually have a contract with one of the major adult movie studios and appear solely in adult movies from that studio.
Feature movies usually contain at least 5 original adult movie scenes, lasting anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes. Some feature adult movies include bonus scenes from other adult movies.
Adult features are meant to appeal to couples and to women, which is why adult movie insiders call them "couple-friendly sex movies". As such, adult studios treat feature movies differently from other adult movie titles. Adult industry insiders believe that women prefer sex with some sort of plot to just random sex scenes. That’s why the story lines in adult features movies tend to focus on subjects that appeal to women, like discovering true love.
This push from the adult movie industry to make features movies appeal to women extends to the sex scenes as well. Many feature adult movies place special emphasis on foreplay. The stars in feature adult movies often make out before undressing each other. The stars then build passion and sexual excitement with lots of foreplay – foot-rubs, toe sucking, nipple sucking, kissing each other all over, etc.
The sex in feature movies are often fairly mainstream – blowjobs, box munching, missionary, cowgirl and doggy style. The majority of feature movies include one girl-on-girl adult movie scene as well as one adult movie scene involving a threesome or foursome. As anal sex becomes less taboo in the adult movie industry, more features are including an anal scene. Only a small fraction of adult features movies contain more exotic adult movie practices like orgies, double penetrations or fetish play.
If you pick a feature adult movie with an interesting plot line or one from an adult movie studio that has released other titles you enjoyed, you’re more likely to enjoy feature adult movie you selected.

Wall-to-Wall or All Sex Adult Movies
If you’re tired of seeing cookie-cutter sex in adult movies, then an all sex adult movie will provide some welcome relief. All sex adult movies, which are also known as wall-to-wall sex movies, are original adult movies containing pure sexual action from beginning to end without the plot element of a feature movie. Don't be fooled though while all sex movies don't have a specific plot line they have a common thread or theme to tie the sex scenes together. The theme can be almost anything imaginable, including physical attributes (hair color or breast size), sexual acts (blowjobs, anal or double penetrations) or themes like naughty college co-eds. All sex movies usually don’t have the big-name adult movie stars like their feature movie counterparts. Instead, all sex movies draw on adult movie stars that are just getting started in the adult movie industry and other adult movie stars with limited experience. Keep your eyes open, you may be watching the next Jenna Jameson before anyone else.
All sex movies typically contain 5 to 10 sex scenes lasting between 15 to 25 minutes each. Because these adult movies don’t spend time on plot, all sex movies contain more scenes and longer sex scenes than a feature movie.
Many scenes in all sex movies start out with a female starlet doing something simple like talking dirty while stripping off her clothes. She'll usually play with herself using her fingers or some sort of sex toy. After that, another star, male or female, joins in the fun.
Unlike feature adult movies, there are few sexual limitations in all sex movies. This no-holds-barred attitude in all sex movies makes them very popular among adult sex movie fans. The actual sex in these movies is often fast-paced and energetic – allowing the adult stars to really show off their talents. While all sex movies do contain mainstream positions like feature movies, all sex movies also contain more exotic sex acts like double penetrations, deep-throat blowjobs, bondage and fetish play, orgies, squirting, shaving, interracial sex and more.

Compilation Sex Movies
For a low-cost way to build your adult movie collection, nothing can beat compilation movies, often abbreviated as comp sex movies. Unlike other adult movies, comp movies do not contain any original sexual content. Instead, adult movie studios collect sex scenes that have already appeared in other adult movies and re-release them as a single adult movie. While many adult movie fans are turned off by the idea of “recycled” sex scenes, this allows adult studios to offer more material than usual. Comp movies are priced similar to original adult movies, but comps contain around 20 to 24 scenes – nearly 5 times the number of sex scenes in some original movies.
Like wall-to-wall adult sex movies, comp movies usually have some sort of common thread. This can be scenes featuring a certain adult star, specific sexual acts, certain physical attributes like large breasts, or the same adult movie theme.
Scenes in comp movies usually start with a list of the adult movie stars appearing in the scene and the title of the movie originally featuring the scene. This is an easy way to learn to ID adult movie stars as well as find other adult movies you might be interested in buying. Although comp movies draw from both feature and all sex movie titles, adult movie studios take a more lenient stand on what can be found in comps than in feature adult movies. As such, the scenes in comp movies are often a little wilder than the typical feature movie scene – meaning more anal scenes and exotic sex positions.
