Softcore pornography or softcore porn is commercial still photography or video footage which has a pornographic or erotic component, but that is less sexually explicit and intensive than hardcore pornography. Softcore pornography is intended to be sexually arousing, and typically contains nude and semi-nude performers and sex scenes. Total nudity is now commonplace in magazines and photography, and increasingly so in film and television. It is also to be found on the Internet. Softcore pornography may also contain depictions of sexual activity, such as sexual intercourse or masturbation, though the sexual activity is typically simulated. Softcore pornography typically does not contain explicit depictions of vaginal or penetration, [cunnilingus]], fellatio and ejaculation.
Depictions of erections of the penis may not be allowed, although attitudes towards this are changing.
Commercial pornography can be differentiated from erotica, which has high-art aspirations.
