Pornography is the fourth studio album by English rock band The Cure, originally released on May 4th, 1982 by the Fiction Records.

Preceded by the non-album single "Charlotte Sometimes" late the previous year, Pornography was the band's first album with a new producer, Phil Thornalley, and was recorded at RAK Studios from January to April. The sessions saw the group on the brink of collapse, with heavy drug use, band in-fighting and group leader Robert Smith's depression fueling the album's musical and lyrical content.

Pornography represents the conclusion of the group's early dark, gloomy musical phase which began with Seventeen Seconds in 1980. -

Following it's release, bass guitarist Simon Gallup left the band and the Cure switched to a much brighter and more radio-friendly new wave sound.

While poorly received by critics at the time of release, Pornography was their most popular album to date, reaching number 8 in the UK charts.

Pornography has since gone on to gain acclaim from critics, and is now considered an important milestone in the development of the gothic rock genre.
