Pornography: Research Advances and Policy Considerations

By Dolf Zillmann; Jennings Bryant | Go to book overview

There are a myriad of regulatory devices which may be used to address the concerns about the proliferation of sexually explicit material. Some devices may have specialized applications--such as zoning or anti-display laws--whereas criminal obscenity laws may find wide application. Material that is sexually explicit but not obscene may be regulated, but it is subject to additional constitutional analysis .The restrictions currently in force against the production of sexually explicit material have withstood scrutiny and attack under the mandates of the First Amendment. These regulations have consistently been upheld in principle, and they have been continually reshaped to accommodate emerging technologies. It is critical however, that new approaches be formulated and adopted to provide remedies for uncompensated harms. The frustration of persons depicted in pornography, as well as other types of material, is discussed at length in Colker ( 1986).

It is also critical that the present "pornography ethic" that accepts the premise that the bodies of women, children and men are commodities to be exploited for profit be rejected by not only the legal system but by society as a whole.
