Media Regulations on Sexual Materials in Different Nations

Obscenity is usually defined as sexually explicit media in its most extreme form. How a person or government defines obscenity can range widely, and can sometimes include something many might find innocent, like a woman showing her face. Just as governments vary in their definition of obscenity, there is also variance in how they might restrict what they determine to be obscene materials. Generally more restrictive policies on obscenity are referred to as conservative, whereas lenient policies are called liberal.
