R vs. X vs. XXX Content?

The first question I am often asked is  – what are the differences between R and X Rated content. That’s fairly easy. R Rated content is nothing more than nudity. X Rated content begins, basically, when you begin to touch yourself either while fully nude or even partially nude. If your content contains images of you either playing with your nipples or touching your genitalia or “spreading” any of your body parts, it would probably be X-Rated. So then what is XXX-Rated content? XXX Rated content usually involves the penetration of an orifice. If your content contains images of you masturbating with anything, a finger, your hand, a vegetable, or a sex toy, that would be considered XXX Rated content. This also applies if you are being penetrated by a partner (oral, vaginal, or anal sex).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-6 vc_col-md-12″][vc_single_image image=”25246″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-lg-6 vc_col-md-12″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1612600667253{margin-top: 11px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]

So Why Should I Care About Producing R, X or XXX Rated Content ?

Depending on which type of content you are producing will determine which laws apply to your production and your content. If you are producing R Rated content (mere nudity) you do not need to comply with a federal law called (18 U.S.C 2257). Once you venture into X or XXX Rated content you will need to comply with the requirements of 2257. Though, you probably should comply even if you are producing just nudes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-lg-6 vc_col-md-12″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1612594688610{margin-top: 11px !important;}”]

Each failure to secure the necessary IDs and 2257 Documents can be seen as one independent violation. If you have produced numerous X or XXX Rated scenes and do not have IDs or 2257 Documents on any of your models, you may be guilty of multiple 2257 violations. 18 U.S.C. 2257 also applies if the only person in your content is you. You need to keep a copy of your ID on file, and to sign a 2257 Document for each solo scene you produce.
