Among the most common inquiries made to the staff of the Attorney General's Commission on Pornography was a request for information on the content of currently available pornography in the United States. The only pertinent data available to the Commission was a single report in the American Journal of Psychiatry,[2252] and brief descriptions which have appeared in current periodicals and other works.[2253] In order to provide data concurrent with the deliberations of the Commission, the Commission through its staff investigated the content of currently marketed materials.
