Pornograpy vs Art

In the 18th century pornography was frowned upon. No picture, letter or brochure could have naked people on them. The Comstock Act which was established in 1873 said that, it illegal to send any "obscene, lewd, and/or lascivious" materials through the mail, including contraceptive devices and information.(found on wikipedia). People didn't have a way to express themselves freely like they do today. But it's perfectly fine if you go to museum and look at naked people because then that is considered art. To me its all the same. Whether someone painted it or photographed it, its all some sort of art form. I believe that if a person chooses to be reveal themselves in any shape, way or form that is their problem and the government should not have any input about it. In today's society it is accepted, with a few restrictions and that is how it should be.
