Default (in)decent content question

I am working on a web republication of a 1966 poetry magazine. Some of the poems include free-wheeling language and imagery, mostly sexual.

What should the publisher do about this? He would not want to be banned as a porn site (some of these poets are extremely well-known and respectable, in their particular genre). Nor would he bowdlerize the poems.

Could he use robots.txt to keep spiders out of the poems? Just give them access to the Table of Contents (titles and poet names)?

Or should he present the difficult poems as images only? (I hate that idea, though one or two of them will be, just because the visual form is essential to the meaning or style.)

Would it help to have some sort of COPPA control on access? If so, how does one do that? (It has always been built in to anything I have had to do with.)
