Banned for decades!

Henry Miller's 1934 novel Tropic of Cancer was banned from publication in the United States under obscenity laws as illegal pornography until a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1964 lifted the ban. The landmark decision stated that "material dealing with sex in a manner that advocates ideas, or that has literary or scientific or artistic value or any other form of social importance, may not be branded as obscenity and denied the constitutional protection."
