In California, the possession and distribution of obscene matter is an offense that can carry heavy fines, substantial jail time and the requirement to register as a sex offender.
Obscene matter is defined as matter that, to the average person, would depict an unpleasantly strong sexual interest or sexual conduct in a patently offensive way, which lacks any serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value. Obscene matter may also include material that depicts minors engaged in sexual conduct.
