An obscene phone call is an unsolicited telephone call where the caller receives sexual pleasure by delivering sexual or foul language to an unknown called party. Making obscene telephone calls for sexual pleasure is known as telephone scatalogia and is theorized as a form of exhibitionism. It is usually classed as a paraphilia from a medical viewpoint, in the DSM under the heading "Paraphilias Not Otherwise Specified", although from the viewpoint of the recipient of the calls, it is generally considered to be both a form of sexual harassment and a form of stalking.http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Divisions_Boards/DJJ/Staff_Services/Stalking.html In some US states, making obscene telephone calls is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.
Generally, unwilling recipients of obscene phone calls are advised to simply hang up on obscene callers, and to report the incident to the telephone company and/or the police. Even when Caller ID is not shown, calls are logged by the telephone company, so the perpetrator's phone number can be discovered. However, many people who regularly engage in obscene phone calls use payphones or prepaid cell phones, and in these cases, a more extensive investigation is necessary.
Since 1857, a series of obscenity laws known as the Obscene Publications Acts have governed what can be published in England and Wales. The classic definition of criminal obscenity is if it "tends to deprave and corrupt," stated in 1868 by John Duke Coleridge, 1st Baron Coleridge.
There have been several Acts of Parliament of this name:
Of these, only the 1959 and 1964 acts are still in force in England and Wales, as amended by more recent legislation. They define the legal bounds of obscenity in England and Wales, and are used to enforce the censorship of obscene material. Irish law diverged from English law in 1929, replacing the OPA 1857 with a new Irish act; see Irish statutes relating to censorship.
Important events in the recent history of the Obscene Publications Act have included:
Scottish prohibitions on obscene material are to be found in section 51 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982.
