dirty mind, a

Prurient, describing someone who thinks of or sees the obscene or indecent aspects of something. The adjective “dirty” has been used in this sense since the 1500s, but the phrase dates only from the 1900s. Stephen Price played on it in Just for the Record (1961): “He had a real porny [pornographic] article . . . not just dirty, mind you, but Art.”
