In the battle over censorship of obscenity, passionate partisanship has never been lacking-on either side of the issue. For decades, ultramoralists and ultra-libertarians have raged at each other, both claiming a monopoly of righteousness or enlightenment. This warfare was supposed to be de-escalated by the 640 page Report of the Commission on Obscenity and Pornography. The Report is supposed to undermine the prejudices which have so long infected this subject by bringing to bear upon it objective facts and solid evidence derived from systematic empirical research.
