The concept pornography is derived from the Greek words porne and graphein which, translated literally, mean to write about either prostitutes or female prisoners. Although pronography originally meant writing about the lowest class of prostitutes, its meaning has changed to such an extent that today it refers to sexually explicit material that is presented in such a way that nothing is left to the imagination. In addition, the sole objective is to stimulate sexually (Theron 1988).
