|The code of practice sets out how service providers should interpret the limits the parties have agreed to impose in terms of the content/material that falls within or outside the 16XX series in terms of being of an erotic, sexual and pornographic nature.
It is a matter for the individual operator to determine whether access is provided to content/material in the 16XX series, and to what extent. Within the 16XX series, there is a distinction between “erotic and sexual content/material” and “pornographic content/material”. This means that a mobile operator may choose to provide access to content/material exclusively in the 12XX, 14XX, 18XX and 19XX series. An operator may also choose to provide access to the above series, plus that part of the 16XX series covering “erotic and sexual content/material”, while barring access to “pornographic content/material”. For details of the extent to which the individual operators allow access to content/material in the 16XX series, please refer to the operators in question.
12XX, 14XX, 18XX and 19XX
| Access to content/material:
No age estriction.
Content/material in the form of text, for example erotic stories and sexual/erotic descriptions are permitted provided the texts do not describe acts and/or situations that are not permitted in images.

|Erotic and sexual content/material
Access to content/material:
It includes content/material intended to have an erotic effect and content/material of a sexual nature.
Erotic content/material ranges from naked pictures/photographs of men/women, the naked model in Se & Hør magazine or the Page 9 Girl in Extra Bladet magazine, to one or more persons touching themselves and one or more persons who may be characterised as being naked, and one or more persons in positions intended to have an erotic effect.
Content/material of a sexual nature includes scenes of sexual relations/intercourse in which the sexual organs are not shown directly.
When the content/material is evaluated, importance will be placed on the overall impression, i.e. the combination of image, sound and animation.
Content/material may consist of text of a sexual and erotic nature and sound files with heavy breathing, and sexual and erotic undertones/overtones.
Access to content/material:
The content/material may only be provided if it is legal.
Pornographic content/material is defined as explicit sexual activity, close-ups of sexual organs and intercourse, frequently with a strongly sexual soundtrack. This category includes all types of sexual activity, with a highly variable number of participants. Distinctions may be drawn between different genres, for example:
- sadomasochism, bondage, domination, rubber, latex
- homosexuality, transvestism
- group sex
