X, XX, XXX -- is there a difference?

The cover story of last Sunday's New York Times Magazine, about the
pornographic video industry, indicated there are real differences between X,
XX, and XXX-rated films -- although sadly it didn't elaborate. I've always
read that the double and triple X ratings are purely a marketing gimmick
with no significance (they're certainly not part of the MPAA system).
Anyone know the answer to this admittedly trivial question?
