Illegal Pornography

Though some may find it distasteful, the reality is that there are many kinds of pornography that are legal. Improper distribution of legal pornography, such as dispensing it to minors, is a crime, but production and consumption under the law is not. However, there are some forms of pornography, the distribution of which is illegal, without exception. The United States Supreme Court has identified the following four kinds of pornography as illegal:

  • Child pornography – material that depicts real or simulated sexual acts involving children under the age of 18
  • Obscene materials – depict hardcore sexual acts or behaviors that would be categorized as deviant. Possession of obscenity in one’s home is legal, but the sharing and distribution of these materials is illegal.
  • Materials considered harmful to minors – material that is legal for adults but illegal for children to view. The distribution of pornography to anyone under 18 is illegal.
  • Indecent material – offensive descriptions or depictions of sexual activity on the radio, television, or telephone.
