Publications which are classified Category 1-Restricted and Category 2-Restricted are publications for adults and they cannot be sold to minors (and are not to be sold in Queensland under Queensland law). They contain content that may offend some sections of the adult community, for example nudity or explicit sexual content.
• Category 1-restricted publications commonly contain images of sexualised nudity and must be distributed in a sealed wrapper. Their covers must be suitable for public display.
• Category 2-restricted publications commonly show images of actual sexual activity between consenting adults and may only be displayed in premises that are restricted to adults.
