Fetish: shota

Shotacon is a fondness or attraction to young boy character(s) or an individual who posses such traits; similar to "moe", basically extreme huggability. The boy character is often referred to as the "shota", and mainly drawn in anime style.

"Shotacon" is short for "Shotaro complex", derived from the boy detective hero Shotaro from the anime and manga series Iron Man #28. Its culture is an offshoot of Bishonen (pretty-boy) and Yaoi (sex-centered pretty-boy) genres, originally formed by a female fan base in the 80's. Over the years, guys have gotten into it too.

The legality of human shotacon and lolicon is heavily debated in the western world and is often used in anti-Japanese debates within Asia.
