In some societies, much greater leniency is extended towards representations of behaviour than to the real thing, but in others there is a much closer correspondence of the restrictions which govern media on the one hand and actual human behaviour on the other. In some there are very stringent restraints on specific media, for example on image making. These different sets of standards will be further sub-divided along lines of content: a society may sanction representations of violence while punishing those who actually do violence on others, and at the same time censor images of the sexual activity which in practice that society condones.
