ABSTRACT
The article argues against the use of the right to freedom of express to justify the publication of pornographic materials in the U.S. It compares the level of the degradation of women in several pornographic magazines including "Playboy," "Penthouse" and "Hustler." It assesses the state of the pornography market in the country. It argues against the argument raised by "Playboy" to justify itself. It criticizes the liberal position on the notion that allowing frank depiction of sex in movies would result in less violent films.
