A shocking sentence

None of the stories I've seen about this guy go into too much detail about what he actually did, so it makes me curious. I mean, I want to know in a general way, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to know the specifics. You know?

An Indianapolis man will serve a 33-month sentence in federal prison for violating federal obscenity laws.

Loren J. Adams, 45, received the sentence Friday in U.S. District Court in Martinsburg, W.Va., according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice. A federal jury in September found Adams guilty of transporting obscene matter through the mail and through interstate commerce.

Adams previously had been convicted of selling obscene material under Indiana law.

Given the depravity that's evident in porn that is widely available and generally met with a yawn these days, what in the world could this guy possibly be distributing that is so bad it meets the legal definition of obscenity? All the story mentions is "bestiality," but that seems pretty tame all things considered.
