Pornographic or Sexually Explicit Mail:

To stop unwanted mailing of pornographic or sexually explicit mail to a consumer's address, the consumer should request a Postal Service Form 2201 (available at local post office). Filling out this form will keep a consumer's name off mailing list for 5 years; after that time it must be renewed. Thirty days after a consumer's name has been added to the Postal Service Reference List, any mailer who sends the consumer sexually oriented advertisements may be subject to civil and criminal sanctions. (Crime Tip Sheet number 43)
