A to Z Poetry: X-rated Poems (Discussion Only)

What is X-rated poetry?
Dictionary.com defines x-rated as:
adjective
1. (of a motion picture) having a rating of X; intended for adults only.
2. obscene, sexually explicit, or vulgar: X-rated language; X-rated magazines.

So, poetry having mature content of a sexual nature or obscene language could be considered X-rated. Though, explicit stories and lyrics are not something of modern poetry and rap music. Take the Big Bang Theory's take on Chaucer's 14th century "The Miller's Tale,"
