Watching Porn At Home Is Not A Criminal Offence: Bombay High Court

Indian Legal News: Watching porn or adult recreational material within the confines of your private residence is not a crime under the eyes of the law. The Bombay HC dismissed a criminal case against 28 men and 11 women who were booked section 292 (public exhibition of obscene material) of Indian Penal Code.

Justice VK Tahilramani observed that no “public exhibition” was observed in the ‘rave party’ that was being held at a Cottage in Prichly Hill, Lonavala on August 26, 2008. Justice Tahilramani contended that though some men were found watching porn film and intoxicated, the venue could not be termed a “public place”.

 
The Honourable Justice hence, quashing the proceeding u/d section 292, said, “The act of the accused of privately viewing the obscene film on a laptop does not amount to public exhibition. Therefore, the act of the accused does not constitute an offence under section 292 of IPC."

we duly authorise the verdict delivered by the honourable court but the defination of public place can be assumed as the people attending in large number, but the truth is the verdict

I am 60 years old and my wife is through memo pause and as such she is not interested in sex. I keep good health and I am still active. Can I watch porno material in private/at home with out attracting any legal strictures.

Yes you can and its great that you are open about your sexuality since it sounds realistic rather than some pretended and unrealistic spiritual non-sense.
Hindu spirituality has never been against carnal pleasure.
Buddhism takes carnal pleasure, filial love, money all as the same, things that are to be given up.
Any way I am 20 and I suggest watch porn and even better keep trying to improve your sex-life. Take proper guidelines for love-making, not just empty porn. Also, both are very important.
Sex and Masturbation is good for health.
Also a woman post-menopause loses reproductive ability not her craving for sex. If your wife dislikes sex she must be going through some health problem phase which can even happen to girls aged 17

Sir I advise you to engage yourself in some spiritual & social activities rather than watching objectionable materials. Spend some good times with your wife, family & friends. Life is not all about carnal pleasure. My advice would have been the same if you were a 20 yr old boy.
