Watch What You Say

Today the term pornography as we know it is described as visual sexual content, but the actual definition of pornography refers to any form of writing, drawing, or photography that contains obscene content. The time period known as "The Great Transformation" is the era in which the United states began filtering published content, establishing laws and tariffs esentially prevented publishers as much as possible from corrupting the people of the states with "pornography." A tariff was developed by government officials in 1842 which banned the import of pornography, leaving deviants with the option of jail if they did not abide by the law. The proclamation society established by William Wilberforce sought to improve public manners through church, but was later replaced by the society for the supression of vice.
