ISSN: 
0817-8542

Abstract

This paper focuses on the effects of exposure to explicit video material, but also makes some reference to film. It compares the censorship guidelines, usage and effect on viewer behaviour of violent, sexually explicit and sexually violent material. The authors stress the need for differentiation of violent and nonviolent sexual material.
