Growing Up Without Mass Media

Consider the conversation of human beings before the advent of mass media.  A boy could grow up and never see anything obscene at all; where would it come from?  Something puerile scrawled on the side of an outhouse?  Meanwhile, the boy would roam the village or the woods and learn things, learn about things, every day.
