For judges faced with the problem of defining the "dim and uncertain" line between obscenity and constitutionally protected free expression, the Supreme Court has painfully worked out a combination of three tests:
> Whether the material is "utterly without redeeming social importance."
> "Whether to the average person, ap plying contemporary community stand ards, the dominant theme taken as a whole appeals to prurient interest."
> Whether it also "goes substantially beyond customary limits of candor" to the point of "patent offensiveness."*
Unfortunately, no two judges can be counted on to read the test results...
