Color Climax Corporation (CCC) is a Danish pornography company. It has its headquarters in Copenhagen. It had been the leading producer of European pornography until 1990s. Since then CCC has recessed most of its assets, but because its earlier works attract admirers of so-called "classic pornography", CCC still functions today via the Internet on a large scale.

Color Climax corporation (CCC) began 1967 with the publication of the porn magazine ColorClimax, despite pornography being illegal in Denmark until 1968.

In the 1970s, CCC began to produce 8 mm pornographic film loops. By the 1980s, video tape had replaced the film loops, sometimes as compilations of previously released material. CCC films usually had a wider range of contents including bestiality (some of them starring Bodil Joensen), she-males, and other content not widely available at the time. Watersports were displayed as conventional sexual acts. By 2004 Color Climax had many popular European filmstars such as Anna Marek, Tove Jensen, Rocco Siffredi, Tiffany Towers and John Holmes in their archives on their website.

Also notable is the fact that Color Climax was one of the only large-scale commercial producers of child pornography in the modern history of erotica to openly advertise the fact. Although generally not mentioned by the multi-national corporation of today, from 1969 to 1979 Color Climax was responsible for the relatively large-scale distribution child pornography. Though participation by such a mainstream studio was unique to Denmark, it generally did not reflect a wide-spread societal acceptance of child pornography in the country at the time.

CCC was also known for its magazine series with titles such as Color Climax and Rodox, which presented a wide variety of European and American stars. Many of those photos are still available today via the Color Climax website and also circulate widely (though in violation of copyright) around the Internet via file-sharing networks and other sources.
