ABC Blocks

A highly subjective reference to material or acts which display or describe sexual activity in a manner appealing only to “prurient interest,” with no legitimate artistic, literary or scientific purpose. pictures, writings, film or public acts which are found to be obscene are not protected by the free speech guarantee of the first amendment. however, the courts have had difficulty making a clear non-subjective definition since “one person’s obscenity is another person’s art,” or, as one supreme court justice stated, “i can’t define it, but i know it when i see it.”
