    feck me I wish I was tall, that was a tough one, had to ask a mate in work on that one....

    alright I will keep it going....

    what country brought in the first law for criminalising porn and what year was it...


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,633 ✭✭✭✭OldGoat


    Excellant question. The subject matter stops people looking up the answer from work, not that any of us google the questions anyway. :D

    I figure it's got to be one of the more fundalmental church&states type countries (like that narrows down the list!). I'll take a stab at...Ireland.

    You mean there was porn before cinema :eek:

    Who'd have thunk it.

    Victorian Britain ?

    Or are you counting some Muslim banning of erotic books in the 7th century ?

    yep porn has been around for a long long time... pompeii had a lot of it...

    and you are spot on with Victorian Britain...

    "The depiction of sexual acts is as old as civilization (and can be found painted on various ancient buildings), but the concept of pornography as understood today did not exist until the Victorian era. Previous to that time, though some sex acts were regulated or stipulated in laws, looking at objects or images depicting them was not. In some cases, specific books, engravings or image collections were censored or outlawed, but the trend to compose laws that restricted viewing of sexually explicit things in general was a Victorian construct. When large scale excavations of Pompeii were undertaken in the 1860s, much of the erotic art of the Romans came to light, shocking the Victorians who saw themselves as the intellectual heirs of the Roman Empire. They did not know what to do with the frank depictions of sexuality, and endeavored to hide them away from everyone but upper class scholars. The moveable objects were locked away in the Secret Museum in Naples, Italy and what could not be removed was covered and cordoned off as to not corrupt the sensibilities of women, children and the working class. Soon after, the world's first law criminalizing pornography was enacted by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1857 in the Obscene Publications Act. The Victorian attitude that pornography was for a select few can be seen in the wording of the Hicklin test stemming from a court case in 1868 where it asks, "whether the tendency of the matter charged as obscenity is to deprave and corrupt those whose minds are open to such immoral influences." Despite the fact of their suppression, depictions of erotic imagery were common throughout history"

    I was going to ask
    what wasn't made illegal because Queen Victoria didn't believed it happened ?
    except it look like it was an urban myth according to QI.
    Oh well
    Be back in a bit with the real question.
