Asian is not opposedThe graphic representation of sexual intercourse and genitals, contrary to popular belief, is not an invention of our time. Such images and sculptures have been widely encountered since ancient times – on Greek vases, frescoes of ancient Rome, on ceramics in Peru – although at that time it did not qualify as pornography.
From the Renaissance to the 18th century, “pornographic” prints became widespread.
With the advent of photography in the 19th century and cinematography in the 20th century, the pornographic representation of sexuality took on a new round of development.
For the first time in the world, pornography was officially banned by the British Parliament in 1857 in the Obscene Publications Act.
