The history of censorship in America is a somewhat complicated story, that evolved over the decades. Up into the 1970's it was entirely obsessed with
"decency" in particular. In cinema, "post-code" there was not to be a hint of what might imply a sexual relationship. About this time, is always when
the shift towards the Culture of Fear was going into effect. So no promiscuity, but war bent fear mongering was alrighty then. I just played this
documentary on the "Pre-Code" Era, "Thou Shall Not Sex: Sex, Sin and Censorship in Pre-Code Hollywood (2007)", but it isn't up in
GooTube in English. This one here I just started, and seems to also be all about that same era, and talks about censorship beyond just Hollywood as
Why Be Good? Sexuality & Censorship in Early Cinema (2007)
