A History of Pornography (Heinemann, 1964) is a book by Harford Montgomery Hyde on the history of pornography.

"With a rational system of sex hygiene and education ... the worthless and unaesthetic pornographic product, which can only be productive of a sense of nausea and disgust, must disappear through lack of public demand, leaving only what is well-written and aesthetically satisfying. For, as this book has attempted to show, there is bad pornography, and also good or at least well-written pornography, which with changing social attitudes is gradually winning common acceptance."
