look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
Refurs STRICTLY to young boys. Female shota is colled Lolli.

Shota, or more commonly in Japan; Syouta, is LEAGAL in Japan because the age of concent is 13 there. Rather than attracting gay men, this appeals to young Japanese girls & one of my friends.
Because of how popular it is & how well it sells & since 2D drawings are harmless, shota will not become illigal in Japan any time soon.

2.
Commonly used as a warning in fanfiction, refers to porn involving an underaged boy (usually 9-12). The other partner can be either another underaged boy or an adult, though adults are more common.

Originates from the Japanese "Shoutacon" which is short for Shoutarou Complex, Shoutarou being a stereotypical name for young boys in Japan.

A young boy, usually between 5 and 13, typically in Japanese anime/manga. These characters are cute, short, and innocent. In most yaoi, they are blonde. While they do attract a fair size male audience, females are more drawn to them.
Amy couldn't believe how cute 11-year-old Syaoran was in that anime! What a total shota!

A shota is a boy about the age of 14. He is usually blonde, small and innocent. They are found in animes/mangas, and if your lucky real life~ ;D
A shota is male, and a female version of a shota is called a loli.
Somebody who loves shotas and is obsessed over them (like me) is called a shotacon.
And example of a shota is the VOCALOID Len Kagamine.
YouTube him~

A nice handsome and loving person. Very responsible and hard working. A guy named Shota will always be a good friend and lover. They are generally nice and gentle,trying to think about the person they are with first rather than themselves. Shota s will nurture you and care about you. Promise you will never regret being with Shota. They are soo adorable
You are such a lovable Shota!
