Stran 59 - Hicklin. [L]ater decisions have rejected it and substituted this test: whether to the average person, applying contemporary community standards, the dominant theme of the material taken as a whole appeals to prurient interest.
Stran 59 - ' . . .A thing is obscene if, considered as a whole, its predominant appeal is to prurient interest, ie, a shameful or morbid interest in nudity, sex, or excretion, and if it goes substantially beyond customary limits of candor in description or representation of such matters . . .." See Comment, id., at 10, and the discussion at page 29 et seq.
Stran 59 - Obscene material is material which deals with sex in a manner appealing to prurient interest. The portrayal of sex, eg, in art, literature and scientific works, is not itself sufficient reason to deny material the constitutional protection of freedom of speech and press.
Stran 26 - I have suggested, should not the word "obscene" be allowed to indicate the present critical point in the compromise between candor and shame at which the community may have arrived here and now?

He may commit such antisocial acts as arson, pyromania, or kleptomania, which are often symbolic sexual acts.
Stran 17 - Philadelphia municipal court has case histories in which sexual arousal from smutty books led to criminal behavior from vicious assaults to homicide. Some of these children did not transgress sexually until they read suggestive stories and viewed lewd pictures of licentious magazines.
Stran 23 - These include the lewd and obscene, the profane, the libelous, and the insulting or 'fighting' words — those which by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace. It has been well observed that such utterances are no essential part of any exposition of ideas, and are of such slight social value as a step to truth that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the social interest in order and morality.
Stran 18 - Whereas there is a growing realization that such foul publications, through their distribution to children and youth and their extensive encouragement to read them, contribute to the breakdown of the moral sense in children which today is causing an increase in juvenile delinquency throughout the Nation and is often responsible for adult criminality; and Whereas the publication, sale, and availability of these destructive and deteriorating books and magazines and "comics...
