Is Obscenity Criminogenic?
Brannigan, Augustine
Society, v4 n5 p12-19 Jul-Aug 1987
Two models are prevalent in obscenity research: one is democratic and political, the second is rational and scientific. An inquiry using the former model found that obscenity did no harm while another study using the latter model had opposite findings. It is difficult to mediate citizens' rights with moral ideology.
