“A leading university has launched an inquiry after it emerged that one of its PhD students has written a research paper about sexual attraction to young boys. Karl Andersson spent three months recording his thoughts and feelings while masturbating over images of young boys in Japanese comic books. In the abstract for the paper, Andersson, who is interviewing fans of shota comics for his PhD, said he wanted to “understand how [they] experience sexual pleasure when reading shota”. His 4,000-word study, which details his sexual habits and sexual encounters between boys in the comics, was published in the journal Qualitative Research in April. It provoked outrage from academics, an MP and others after it was circulated on Twitter this week. The University of Manchester and Qualitative Research have announced they are investigating the circumstances of the research and its publication.


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

The Guardian article is behind a pay wall. However, the research paper, at least I assume this is the article the Guardian refers to, is available here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/360206602_I_am_not_alone_-_we_are_all_alone_Using_masturbation_as_an_ethnographic_method_in_research_on_shota_subculture_in_Japan

They never get tired of harassing people, do they?

This is a perfectly valid subject of research.

I suppose it’s novel that someone, who presumably is not already sexually attracted to boys, has attempted to nurture a sexual attraction to boys…kind of a reverse version, of what they try to do to you if your caught with “child pornography”.

“Dr Mara Keire, a historian at Oxford University who writes about sexual violence, expressed her shock at the research paper, tweeting: “How was a description of the author masturbating to the images of young boys peer reviewed and published?”

These people are mentally defective…and stupid…and vicious manipulators…

…Forgive me…but these sorts of people make me sick…Masturbating to cartoons Is Not sexual violence.

“An National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children spokesperson said: “That this research was published in a peer-reviewed journal is highly concerning, and it’s right that the universities and publishers involved are investigating. All research, and research publication, should be subject to proportionate but rigorous ethical review, including robust safeguarding checks.”

…”Cruelty” to ink on paper?…”Cruelty” to pixels on a screen?…

I expect these people are too dumb to be in charge of anything at all, let alone institutions and agencies…That they are, is why this world is going straight to hell…why it is such an insufferable hell.

Karl Andersson [who looks like a sweetheart, if you ask me], is being targeted by a witch hunt.

His research method is fascinating…He should be careful, though…He might like it so much, he wont want to stop.

I absolutely understand the nostalgia angle, when masturbating…Even just the thoughts that have gone through my own head while masturbating, have commonly been of looking back into my own boyhood…and things that happened…or could have happened…

This research is honestly touching on something relevant.

I had seriously thought of doing something very similar to this, years ago…writing in detail [diary style] about my own masturbation…fantasies…methods…stimulations used…It pivoted and morphed into a somewhat different project, however.

Not sure how many other people would have wanted to read it…but I think it could have been a meaningful project.

I commend Karl Andersson for doing this…and for his bravery in publishing his research.

    My guess is the haters are just mad that they didn’t think of that themselves. Maybe I should apply for a grant to see what jerking off to cp would be like. Oh, I don’t know, get enough cash to let me spend hours a day for a year or two and see if there are any changes to my thinking regarding the topic. And to make it very relevant, I’d also look at standard fare porn, fetish porn and classic porn, just for comparisons sake. Throw in a variety of lubes, sexual devices and viewing arrangements and I would be most happy to write it all up and summarize the event. And since the Feds are financing it, they could throw in some of the evidence sitting in the FBI vault as well. (It will save money so I don’t have to contribute to the “billions” of dollars that cp brings in every year.)

    I read the paper and it seems reasonable, well thought out and not at all salacious, but then again, if you are anti sex, just about anything you write will appear over the top and out of bounds and if you believe anyone under the age of 18 is incapable of sexual pleasure, then the entire exercise is just as you put it, abusing pixels.

    “Masturbating to cartoons Is Not sexual violence.” I would go further and say that jerking to any image be it a photo, video, or real-life situation is no-one else’s business but the person doing the jerking. Anyone who claims otherwise is either a moralistic empathy-bypassed busy-body who feels they have a god-given right to control and restrict the sexual behaviour of others to the point where the only activity allowed is sex for procreation, or a government keen to monitor and control everything citizens do. The imprisonment of so many individuals who evidently enjoy viewing child erotica imagery is ample testament to totalitarian governance on the one hand, and a genuine natural human need to view such material on the other – doubtless an antidote to loneliness in many cases.

    “This is a perfectly valid subject of research … honestly touching on something relevant. I commend Karl Andersson for doing this…and for his bravery in publishing his research.” Absolutely. I feel there is scope for extending the research to determine the reasons why increasing numbers of children enjoy acting exhibitionistically and sexually online. Perhaps such research might reach the very same conclusion as Karl’s introductory title: “I am not alone – we are all alone”, in other words, age is no barrier to loneliness nor the need to belong, and behaving sexually online with consensual others is a rapid and exciting way of achieving that sense of belonging – so that is why so many kids do it.

      I fully agree.

      I think it’s just normal that sexual activity is exciting by default…and much to the chagrin of self appointed “authority”, they cannot terrorize this out of anyone else…not even children.

      It just continues to rise to the surface, regardless of what is thrown at it.

    Interestingly, I see Karl Andersson is no stranger to controversy. He created Destroyer, a Swedish-based pederastic magazine back in 2006 – purportedly a journal of Apollonian Beauty and Dionysian Sexuality, with the following objective: “to bring back the adolescent boy as one of the ideals of gay culture”.

    Destroyer contains features, essays, interviews, reviews, columns, culture articles, fiction and sexually suggestive shots of boys as young as 13. The publication unsurprisingly received intense criticism from the LGBT community: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destroyer_Magazine

    Newgon also references the magazine: https://www.newgon.net/wiki/Destroyer
