Pornography is sexually explicit material that increases sexual arousal in consumers with an intact sexual response. The material may be presented in many forms such as film, photographs, books, paintings, sculptures, and so forth.
Psychological scientists disagree on the best way to define pornography so the above definition is not universally accepted. A useful review of key features of a definition of pornography can be found in McKee et al. (2020).
