ABSTRACT
The article talks about the supporters or advocates of immorality. It refers, primarily, to the writers who have developed a philosophy of obscenity and have upheld their rights to propagate their ideas. These writers believe that sins of the flesh are merely forms of self-expression and that obscenity is a superstition that exists only in the minds of the prurient. They also believe that sense of modesty is a racial taboo, morals are conventions, and ethics are but matters of taste.
