Regulations for Retail Display of Pornography in Florida

It is not illegal to sell pornography in a business that minors frequent; however individuals and businesses are required to follow certain rules to ensure that minors cannot see pornographic material. Magazines, books, and any other printed material that shows images of a pornographic nature on its cover must be out of viewing range of minors. These images must be either blacked out or otherwise out of the viewing range of minors.

If magazines, books, or other printed materials have descriptive pornographic material inside of them, then the individual or the business has a responsibility not to place this information where minors could gain access. This means that retail locations must have "adult sections" which are securely located behind counters or in other monitored areas to ensure minors don't gain access.
