The present paper investigates the sexually explicit imageries in Romanian mass media. We note that in Romania there is no interest in scientific research on type of issue, no surveys or academic data being available. The issue was approached indirectly in relation to human trafficking and prostitution, on one hand, and with children’s rights and prevention, on the other. UNICEF and “Save the Children” are two organizations that proved to be interested in the issue and several Romanian newspapers published articles on this issue (especially news related to Internet pornography focusing on the cases of children and teenagers).

In general, the issue is frequently linked either to violence against women and prostitution, or to the esthetic-literary debates - references are made especially to the use of sexual themes and images in novels and the fine arts.

The general research question for which we shall try to offer an answer is: What are the main patterns of Romania media usages of sexually explicit imagery?

In approaching the subject we shall analyze several dimensions: 1. the general legal framework; 2. the organization, financing and offers of the Romanian mass media of this type of message; 3 case studies of media representations and public decoding and their opinions regarding this type of media content.
