Obscenity is any work of art or expression in a form such as a book, photograph, movie, play, painting, or performance that displays an offensive sexual act that has no literary, artistic, political, or scientific value. This type of expression is not protected by the constitutional right of freedom of speech because it is so offensive to others and may be presented to children.
