The question is, does this cover adults engaging in sexually explicit

I seem to recall a supreme court case that touched on this, but I
could be wrong and I don't quite remember the ruling--if I manage to
be less busy in the next couple days, I'll look for it.
You are probably thinking of Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition
The Wikipedia article at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_pornography#Simulated that links to
this case gives a quick (and, as far as I can tell, correct) rundown
of the laws concerning simulated child pornography in different
countries. Surprisingly enough, unless Ashcroft v. FSC has been
overthrown since, the pertinent laws in the USA seem to be
considerably more lax than the laws in most other countries.
