9 Songs (2004) - Michael Winterbottom [IMDB]

The BBFC has classified Michael Winterbottom's film 9 Songs '18' uncut for cinema release.

Although not numerous, there are precedents for the Board passing real sex at '18', including Ai No Corrida classified '18' in 1991 (which also depicts the development of a relationship using images of real sex) and more recently Romance (1999) and Intimacy (2001).


In the context of hardcore and softcore pornographic movies, unsimulated means real sex acts which are filmed as is, while simulated means, that the act of lovemaking or other erotic behaviour is suggested, not performed in reality, thus: simulated. [Sept 2006]

"We [the BBFC] don't normally allow depictions of unsimulated sex in an 18 film, unless they can be exceptionally justified by the context of he film," Craig Lapper, the board's chief assistant in charge of policy told BBC News Online. --http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/film/3723923.stm [Sept 2004]

List of mainstream movies with unsimulated sex

The following mainstream films have scenes with real/unsimulated sex, meaning the passive actor/actress is penetrated by or performing fellatio on a penis. While any of the sex scenes might be considered pornographic, the main intent of these films are not pornographic. These films push the boundary of what is acceptable in mainstream story-telling.
