Pornography (n.) Also, "porn", "pr0n". A super-stimulus that exceeds the bounds of polite society.
The term usually applies to erotic images designed to super-stimulate the adult male heterosexual mind. There appears to be less enthusiasm for such stimulae in the adult female mind, which seems more interested in, depending on the age and situation of the female, super-stimulus through images of weddings, babies, domestic interiors, and clothing. Since the bounds of polite society keep changing, one cannot define absolutely what is, and what is not, porn. To some extent, the stretching of polite society's bounds is one of the functions of art, and therefore some porn can be, and often is, considered art. Art is never porn. Pr0n, a subclass of porn aimed at younger males, has been cited as one of the principal drivers of the Internet.
