The Nation

A majority of Americans believe X-rated movies and sexually explicit magazines should be on sale but nearly two out of three want a ban on materials that depict sexual violence, a Gallup Poll showed. Clear majorities favor the continued sale of X-rated movies and sexually explicit magazines, although some are willing to limit their public display, said the poll in Newsweek magazine. A plurality, 47%, favored a national standard for determining what is obscene rather than individual community standards. But by a 48% to 43% margin, those surveyed said they want to see the code remain as it is.
