A friend of my child's father is sending him inappropriate content
I believe it is wrong for men to look at inappropriate content. The father of my child has agreed to respect my beliefs. His co-worker sent him an inappropriate video. He got mad because he does not think he should tell his friend to not send him things like that.
The offspring are your Property;
If you require that no other man show inappropriate content to them, then require compensation for use and enjoyment of your Property, without your consent;
Send them a bill;
When they do not pay it, activate the local Sheriff, take them to small claims court, and win a judgment against them for failure to compensate for the use and enjoyment of your Property;
I wonder what might happen after that... learn to act as man :)... and watch the magic happen...

From what you write, it sounds like you're reaching quite far into your child's father's way to handle his friendships.
There's a difference between an agreement between you and the child's father to not view porn, and with you monitoring and setting standards for your child's father's way to handle his social life.
Try to accept the limits of your request extends to you and the child's father, not the way the child's father wants to handle his relationships with other people.
Also, pushing too hard or setting your expectations of the child's father too wide for him to tolerate may end up backfiring on you.
Who knows, maybe he'll decide "enough is enough" and withdraw from the otherwise reasonable agreement to not watch porn.

In my book, this is a boundary issue. Although you do not like inappropriate content, it is not up to you what your child's father looks at or what his friend sends him. It is really hard not to monitor other people's lives, but in the end, your rights begin and end with you.

It sounds like you are wanting to protect your child from degrading images and that is one of the important parts of the job of a parent. Although it is challenging to supply an answer without knowing the full situation, it might be helpful to have a more broad discussion about what you both think about the influences and images that your child is exposed to and what you think your role is in protecting your child. This situation is one about beliefs and values and could well be an example you can use for exploring your parenting roles in protecting your child.
