contemporary community standards
In deciding whether allegedly obscene material has any literary, political or scientific value, the proper inquiry is not whether an ordinary member of any given community would find serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value in the material, but whether a reasonable person would find such value in the material taken as a whole. Pope v. Illinois, 481 U.S. 497, 107 S.Ct. 1918, 95 L.Ed.2d 439, 445
