Not every kind of pornography is prohibited by Turkish Penal Code; however, some kind of pornography is sentenced to penalty of imprisonment. Appropriating international conventions, child pornography is severely punished. In addition to child pornography, producing, transporting, selling, storing, retaining and offering for use of audio-visual material contains bestiality, necrophilia or sexual act performed with use of force or in any other unnatural manner also leads to imprisonment. According to the legality principle, the criminal acts penalized by article 226 of Turkish Penal Code are so explicit and understandable, but obscenity of “any other unnatural manner” is not.
