You are accountable to God your Creator.

So keep ur thoughts clean. Keep your eyes from evil.

Jesus said -- if u look at a woman with lust, you have already committed adultery in your heart.

THE LAW ON PORNOGRAPHY IN INDIA
Pornography and Obscenity
The term pornography when used in relation to an offence is not defined in any statutes in India but the term obscenity has been effectively explained in these legislations (i) The Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC) and (ii) The Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act).
Although neither the IPC nor the IT Act defines what obscenity is, section 292 of the IPC and section 67 of the IT Act,explain obscenity to mean anything which is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest or if its effect is to deprave and corrupt persons. Therefore according to the law in India, anything that is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest or if its effect is to deprave and corrupt persons would be considered to be obscene.
Obscenity as an offence under the Indian Penal Code.
Section 292 of the IPC comprehensively sets out the circumstances in which obscenity and / or any obscene material is an offence.

Not at all: First any such thing would not be on the net.Second u r not hacking some others private data.If u want to watch no one can book you for a crime.There are other finer things available on the net.Find them and get ur knowledge expanded for worthwhile causes.Porn has nothing to teach you as it is a natural thing u will know without a GURU.Now upto you.

Viewing porn online is not an offence,but as some have already pointed out, publishing or distribution is an offence.But again,different countries have different rules,as per my knowledge,China is making efforts to ban porn sites,but it is not even considered an offence in some European countries,so depends on nationality also.But in India,viewing is not a crime.

Viewing pron on the net must be restricted for kids who are under 21 years. It gives sex education,some times it helps to rouse sex appetite of the reduced sex of conjugal life.It depends on the mental set-up of the adults.It will be a crime if it is not permitted by the govt.laws.Down-loading is a crime.We are living in the age of computer-science-advancement. So judicious application is necessary.

As per the Indian Information Technology Act it is not a crime but what about the morals. Don't watch porn to keep away yourself from the evils of it.

If the porn is likely to pass in a porn magazine in your country then by common sense it is OK. If the porn is of extreme kind (Like underage or violent sex etc) then you should be in trouble for viewing this.

I am not sure what is the exact law on this but the law should be close to what I have explained above.

As per IT act, publishing & distributing is a crime.... and watching porn in a public place like cybercafe etc too is a crime. Carrying porn clips in mobiles has been covered as crime by courts.
Only watching porn in a private place like home etc is not a crime.
Downloading porn over internet is not a crime..but sharing it over P2P networks is !!
Ordering porn DVDs/CDs from abroad too is a crime.

If porn contains child pornography or violent or non-consensual sexual depiction then it is expressedly crime under all conditions

No, not at all. If someone want to view the porn sites then what's wrong. I think who have no work they call this as crime. But politician doing 100 crimes per day they don't count as criminal.

No, it does not come under the definition of crime.viewing porn on line or watching video in private is just like enjoying other movies or tv serials. but when it is seen or dipicted publically it becomes a crime caz it provokes the sensuality of male /female and can harm to others in the form or rape or molestration. sexual acivities in any form(watching porn,making love or talking vulger ,touching genital organs etc)displyed in public is a crime and in closed room is human rights.
