xxxclamation mark - Xxxclamation point. Exclamation points, the number of which indicates how lurid the pornographic material you're considering buying or renting is. The more !'s the more x's implied. X-rated is definitely unsuitable for children. I'm not sure whether it's the case these days, but xxx-rated used to indicate explicit genital exposure and coitus or equivalent. It would hardly surprise me to learn that genital exposure for masturbation is no longer considered xxx-rated. The xxx rating may be reserved for when the sex acts involve bizarre fetishes, pedophilia, violence, and more than one person -- possibly a chick and a chickadee?

e.g., With as many xxxclamation marks as were used on the box, I thought it might be too sensational and shocking even for my jaded palate. I figured I'd end up with an adult case of crazy eye, for which there's no known cure. Treatable, but incurable.
