Japanese term meaning 'lolita
complex,' after the novel (and two movies). The abbreviated 'complex' is generally transliterated with an ending -n rather than -m. Oh those crazy japanese.
The term typically refers to pornographic art, anime
or otherwise, of females aged between 12 and 16, and also to those people attracted to such girls. However, real child pornography is sometimes called lolicon.
Art of underaged girls is legal in most countries, which explains the popularity of lolicon. Despite the fact that the age bracket is technically outside the realm of pedophilia
, lolicon is frowned apon, especially in the west.
Lolicon featuring males is shotacon
"Lolicon doesn't hurt anyone. Gimme the tissues and fuck off."
