Sexploitation, or "sex-exploitation", describes a class of independently produced, Low Budget feature films generally associated with the 1960s and serving largely as a vehicle for the exhibition of non-explicit sexual situations and gratuitous nudity. The genre is a subgenre of Exploitation Films. Sexploitation films were generally exhibited in urban Grindhouse Theaters , the precursor to the Adult Movie Theater of the '70s and '80s that featured Hardcore content. The term Soft-Core is often used to designate non-explicit sexploitation films after the general legalization of hardcore content. Nudist films are often considered to be subgenres of the sex-exploitation genre as well. "Nudie" films and "Nudie-cuties" are associated genres.
