Since this was not shared or disseminated  but was a private communication between two persons deemed old enough to consent to sexual activity, it seems to me that this is more about reasonable expectation of privacy then pornography. There should be not a fine line but a solid wall between the state's legitimate interest in controlling sexual exploitation of the young and the right of young couples to explore and share their sexuality.
