    1. Similar words
    2. Bawdry is a very old and unusual word, you won't hear it very often. Most often you will hear dirty, naughty, risque, etc instead. All of these are usually used as describing a joke or song which has sexual innuendo, but is not extremely graphic. obscene/obscenity is for more graphic, unacceptable content (porn, very graphic rap lyrics, etc) . This can be both a legal term (some obscene content does not get 1st amendment protection), as well as a social term. The difference between the two is subjective. A high class, religious, conservative old woman might think a regular dirty joke is obscene.
