This page is about the idiom x-rated
If something is x-rated, it is classified as pornographic and therefore not suitable for young people.
- One of the first x-rated movies to get a general release was "Last Tango in Paris" with Marlon Brando.
- I checked the brower's history and saw that my teenage son had been looking at x-rated websites, as all healthy, normal boys do.
Origin: From a film classification system in which films with pornographic content were given an "x" rating. This led to "xxx", a symbol mostly used in marketing pornographic material, or pornographic live shows.
If you watch an x-rated movie, you'll see a movie
