it's what you make of I guess you could try a thesaurus they have lots of words for describing the word obscene it's something that is displayed in public that is too graphic for anyone to see. 1.Offensive to accepted standards of decency or modesty.

But alas in most cases you need to see it, or read, or hear, to know. Most cases it's probably best to air on the side of caution. BUT most of the time as long as you have big warning of the content of a website, post on a group etc. (The are you over 18 click button things) and such, it a good idea. A chance, and warning for the reader/viewer to realise it isn't something they want to see. If you go to websites like What was first there, the chuck or the egg?
