Why is a Film considered to be a blue film 18+

Why is a Film considered  to be a blue film 18+

Blue Film is also known as Adult Film or a Pornographic Films,most of us might have seen it while in school,college,while the rest of us took a longer. But it is safe to say that we've all seen porn, at least once.
Long ago,when pornographic movies where played in local theatres,pornographic  posters where printed in blue and white,not to attract attention like the normal movies  does,though in some places,it is still practiced .
Earlier,Budgets was an issue,it wasn't easy to shoot porn movies  when it was initiated,So movie makers
and producers had to resort to cheaper ways to develop the black &
white reel into a coloured one. And it is because of this that they
had to compromise the quality of the film and give it a blueish tint,
instead of a proper colour.It was also likely that producers bought damaged movie reels at cheap prices, which would also result in a similar blue tint indicating the low quality. Although, now you can watch it in HD,the name 'blue film' stuck.

Meanwhile,the following are brief explanations on why it is called a blue film:

1. It is believed that in the starting days adult films were very hard to make and
always struggled to find financing.
These financial budgets were practically non-existent and film producers used to be very secretive about making such movies.They thus created these movies at a very low-cost and quickly so as not to spend too much time on it. The low-cost films thus used for these movies used to give it a bluish colour tint coining the name “blue movie”.

2. It is also said that in the hay days shopkeepers who used to sell these adult
VCR cassettes wrapped in a blue colored package and they thus came to be
known as ‘Blue films’.

3. While the above two reasons seem to come from the audience point of view,
it is also said that the “Blue Film” terminology refers to a cinematic production
which worked contradictory to the standard moral code in the movie industry.
To be more precise it basically meant that it was a spin-off of the “blue laws”
that were followed in the States nearly 50-60 years back.
These blue laws didn’t allow businesses to operate on Sundays and these laws
particularly targeted alcohol businesses, grocery stores, and few other
commercial activities.
