It's so much easier to make a porn film this days, it's easier to find talent, it's easier to produce, and finaly it's easier to distribute with youtube knock off free video sites like porntube, youporn, spankwire, etc. You don’t need much more than a camera, a couch and a Craigslist ad. But even in an industry where you can cut corners and get to the pounding point, there’s a craving for more than just sex-only movies. Big-budget porns have become increasingly popular and moviemakers continue to come up with creative ways to add production value to a simple sex scene. Here's a list of top 10 most expansive porn films ever made.
No.10 Conquest Budget: $150,000 (1997)
Conquest was one of the first big-budget porn movies in the adult film industry, and it turned out to be a big hit.
No.9 Flashpoint X
The highlight of this big-budget porn was that Jenna Jameson was in her prime.
No.8 Manhunters Budget: $250,000 (2006)
Wicked Pictures is one of the biggest brand names in the adult film industry, and its 2006 hit, Manhunters, is one of their best productions.
No.7 Operation Desert Stormy Budget: $250,000 (2007)
Operation Desert Stormy is another one of Wicked Pictures' big-budget porns, but it has a different undertone than some of the other movies on this list.
Budget: $350,000 (2007)
From the high-quality cardboard sleeve to the first-class high-definition cameras that were used to film this porn, Upload was a big-budget success.
Budget: $500,000 (2002)
The crew for this porn went all out to give it a real Hollywood feel. The costumes were extravagant, the cinematography was solid and the lighting was on par for the silver screen. Overall, this is as close to a best-of-both-worlds attempt as you can get with an X-rated movie.
Budget: $1 million (2005)
Few porn flicks have been talked about as much as Pirates, the porn spin-off of the Hollywood hit Pirates of the Caribbean
Budget: $1.2 Million (1995)
It’s not usual for a porn budget to cross the million dollar mark, but the big investment actually paid off in the end. HBO and the USA Network picked up the film after editing it down to an R version.
Budget: $8 million
Overall, Pirates II didn’t get as much praise or acclaim as the first move in the series, but it did live up to the hype. It was, for the most part, just more of what the first movie was: quality film production wrapped around filthy sex scenes.

Budget: $17.5 million (1979)
The acting in porn movies is pretty cheesy, right? Not in Caligula, a 1979 film whose makers cracked open the piggy bank to hire a real Hollywood crew, including Oscar Award winning actress, Helen Mirren. Needless to say, she raised a lot of eyebrows when she accepted this role.
