After stumbling across the book last week I had an intriguing desire to read it, since it had a similarity to the ever popular Lolita genre in our society. Reading into it, my assumptions were corrected by the introduction of a twelve year old girl who “hump hump” (I called him that since he would most likely get intimate with her soon and his name is name lead me to call him that) that is what lead to this topic, it seems that many on the internet agree and some officially declare that Lolita’s name contributed to lolicon. Going into it I hope it has better “descriptions”(hint* hint*) than “The Stranger” by Camus.

You really should know that, if you're talking about the book Lolita written by Vladimir Nabokov, that book was the origin of the term lolita.
I have not read it, but something tells me I should as literary cultural education... Much like reading The 120 Days of Sodom, written by Marquis de Sade, who originated the term "Sadism" as in sadistic... Try to read that book, I dare you, you will be feeling... bad things inside you.


cool!!! such great infos!!! though i already know the loli part

how about the sadism?

is that really ..... ENLIGHTENING? haha

Lolita, before Nabokov's novel, was really just a common name/nickname. One of the (fashion) lolitas I've spoken to was actually named Lolita (Lola for short). Humbert Humbert, the pedophilic-protagonists, actually calls the promiscuous girls (around the ages of nine to 14) "nymphets", not "lolitas". The name was put into popculture as meaning a promiscuous young girl, because "Lolita" was one of the more common nicknames of the central/title character, Delores Haze. Because the title was "Lolita", it stuck more as the common term than "nymphet" to describe girls like Delores Haze.

In Japan, due to the ever present language barrier, the term was thought of as any young girl found to be physically appealing by an adult, leading to the term "lolita complex" or "lolicon". This interpretation of the word disregards the fact that lolitas/nymphets are more about the child corrupting the adult, rather than the other way around. The belief that it referred to a sense of young girlishness rather than the nymphet archetype also lead to the name lolita being atached to the Japanese street fashion, in spite of the fact that most of the hardcore fashions fans are older teens and youg women.
