At least one country, Germany , has different age limits for hardcore and softcore pornography, softcore material usually receiving a FSK rating no one under 16 allowed to buy and hardcore material receiving a FSK no one under 18 allowed to buy. Pornographic filmmakers sometimes make both hardcore and softcore versions of a film, with the softcore version using less explicit angles of sex scenes,  or using the other techniques to "tone down" any objectionable feature. Sexual acts depicted in softcore pornography are usually simulated or at least not showing penetration by the actors as several takes are needed before wrapping. The sexually charged imagery only emerges in feint detail within intimate distance. In countries which allow the rental of softcore films, there may be restrictions on the open display of the films. In some more restrictive jurisdictions such films may only be available in a sex shop.
