When the Motion Picture Association of America MPAA decided to implement a ratings system in November , its purpose was to easily communicate to parents whether a flick would be fun for the whole family… or earn them a visit from child protective services. But it didn't take long for the adult industry to join the party and co-opt the salacious-sounding X -- then take it two steps further by adopting a XXX rating for its spiciest titles. Because the MPAA neglected to trademark its ratings system opening the door to that aforementioned porn penetration , rather than compete with or take on the adult industry to bring the X rating back to its original purpose, they dropped it altogether. In , the X begat the NC rating -- though some filmmakers have opted to distribute their movies with no rating at all the ratings system was, and is, voluntary.
