Lolicon (ロリコン, rorikon), sometimes shortened to loli (ロリ, rori), is a Japanese term derived from "lolita complex". (...)
- One interpretation is that it refers to a sexual complex where an adult (male or female) is attracted to an underage girl, or in which an underage boy is attracted to an underage girl, or two underage girls.
- In the Western world, it refers specifically to artwork or manga depicting pre-pubescent or pubescent girls in sexual situations. (...)
Lolicon has dubious legality in many parts of the world. The sale, but not posssession, of lolicon is outlawed and punishable by imprisonment in some regions of Japan, but is legal in others. The United States PROTECT act of 2003 prohibited obscene or sexual drawings of children, while the Supreme Court in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition ruled that such legislation is unconstitutional. Lolicon is illegal in Australia, Canada, Sweden, Norway, and South Africa, but prosecutors do not typically press charges unless other crimes are present. Since most lolicon is trafficked internationally (such as through the Internet), national legal prohibitions are difficult to enforce.
Due to the popularity of the anime and manga art form, there is an increasing crossover with loli and girl spanking art. (more...)
