Dietz Discusses Pornography Report

This article outlines and responds to a report issued by Attorney General Edwin Meese's Commission on Pornography. The report states that pornography is both in wider circulation and more violent and degrading in nature since the commission's last report (1970), and concludes that a minority of viewers could exhibit sexually violent behavior as a result, affecting a significant number of people. UVA law professor Park Dietz refutes media claims that the report advocates censoring pornography, and clarifies that obscene material is defined legally as sexual material that has no artistic or redeeming value.
