A specific erotic image detection method (SEIDM) is presented for some special kinds of erotic images which are difficult to be identified by conventional algorithm in this paper. According to the features of these specific erotic images, an improved skin-color model is presented and a new image text detection method using integral image is designed. Text information and skin-color information detected are fed to a trained Support Vector Machine (SVM) which gives the final result. The experimental results indicate that SEIDM can detect special erotic image with high recall and precision.
