You keep saying this, and others keep correcting you. Just to make it clear: the Protect Act of 2003 only covers legally obscene images.
Let me break this out for you:
The Miller Test for Obscenity (from Wikipedia via the Miller Case ruling):
The Miller test was developed in the 1973 case Miller v. California. It has three parts:
a) Whether the average person, applying contemporary community standards, would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest,
b) Whether the work depicts/describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct or excretory functions specifically defined by applicable state law,
c) Whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value. (This is also known as the (S)LAPS test- [Serious] Literary, Artistic, Political, Scientific.)
The work is considered obscene only if all three conditions are satisfied.
In addition, the work must be sexually explicit for it to fall under the jurisdiction of the Protect Act.
(A) Except as provided in subparagraph (B), “sexually explicit conduct” means actual or simulated—
(i) sexual intercourse, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex;
(iv) sadistic or masochistic abuse; or
(v) lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of any person;
(B) For purposes of subsection 8(B)  of this section, “sexually explicit conduct” means— (i) graphic sexual intercourse, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex, or lascivious simulated sexual intercourse where the genitals, breast, or pubic area of any person is exhibited;
(ii) graphic or lascivious simulated;
(II) masturbation; or
(III) sadistic or masochistic abuse; or
(iii) graphic or simulated lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of any person;
