While Americans are embroiled in the current Supreme Court confirmation, it is worth noting how judges ruled in the last precedent case to affirm the legality of obscene art in fiction, Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition.

oyez.org/cases/2001/00-795

Justice Clarence Thomas had the supporting opinion of it being protected under free speech, along with the recently retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"Frankly, I am beginning to doubt that I ever want to see an American edition of these banned books. The notoriety, the unpleasantness involved, seem hardly worth the price.
I have always felt deep down that no great change can be expected in America—either on the part of our legislators or our judges. As for the public—it is indifferent, it seems to me.
The vast majority, I mean. I am in no hurry to make myself a scapegoat for what seems like a lost cause."
—Henry Miller

What it is like to buy a truly banned book from eBay. The material itself is legal for me to receive and read, but was still removed from the listings of "Completed Items" shortly after purchasing anyways.

The item was up for less than a day before being reported, as compliance with payment processing companies ultimately controls what is suppressed and what is acceptable in any mainstream marketplace for books.

In 1955, Olympia Press published Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita” when no one else would accept his manuscript. One of the last books they ever printed was titled “My Mother Taught Me,” featuring a pornographic story of incest between a mother and son written by Tor Kung.

Out-of-print and is likely to remain suppressed from republication. A first edition copy of the 1967 all-green cover is seemingly valued at over $400 from used booksellers.
