Stuart's Daily Word Spot: X certificate

Dr. No (film)Image via Wikipedia
X certificate: noun – a film classification (now sometimes superseded by ‘18’) indicating a movie is suitable only for adults; used figuratively to denote an entertainment, event, object etc., suitable only for those with an adult disposition, usually because of either sexual or violent content, or both.

‘The film, Reservoir Dogs, was awarded an X certificate ranking due to its extreme violence.’

‘Arthur marked Ursula’s bikini swimsuit in Dr No as X certificate because he thought she looked so hot he wouldn’t be able to keep his hands off her if she moved too close to him.’
