How do YOU define pornography?
With the Internet providing access to 24/7 sex and sex acts, has it changed the definition of pornography?The Internet has opened up the dark areas of human activities, and the question of pornography is one of those areas.
This is a great question, and very relevant in today's electronically connected age. The "usual" response is "I know it when I see it." But that's a cop out, IMHO. Let's start with nudity. There is nothing wrong with the nude human body. It is the subject of artistic representation all over the world. There is nothing wrong with more than one nude person in a given picture or other representation. What begins to become pornographic, is when the sexual organs are specifically targeted, or the sexual act is depicted, to bring about erotic thoughts and feelings. I would also add that any sexuality specific content involving minors is particularly offensive. A great guide can be found at http://www.internetsafety101.org/whatispornography.htm.
indecency, material harmful to minors, obscenity, and child pornography.
Indecency is tough, as it changes with the times and the culture.
Harmful to minors, also difficult with the current sexual freedom.
Obscenity was always difficult to define.
