--------------------------------------

Lolicon and hentai, etc., are otherwise known as "cartoon porn." They often depict partially or fully naked children, toddlers and infants. Some people think that because no REAL children are involved that no harm is done. That is not the case. To give you an example of the content being addressed, which includes rape, torture, violence, and incest, here are some lolicon title examples from a lolicon/hentai site: (collected Feb. 2010 from URL below.)

A Feminist Analysis of Cartoon Porn and Hentai
 
Estela López
August 10, 2008
 
Cartoon pornography and hentai are niches of pornography where the representation of the female is completely controlled by pornographers. It is a sub-genre of the multibillion dollar filmed prostitution industry* that has not been thoroughly analyzed. Cartoon pornography seems less harmful than normal pornography, because it does not involve actual women's bodies; however, pornography made of real women's bodies is the foundation of its themes. Porn consumption, global prostitution trafficking, and normalized male sexual violence against women and girls are inseparable from the production of these images. To fully understand a media artifact, three elements are key- production, text, and consumption- all examined in a social, economic, and political context*. The massive growth of the porn industry and the continuing global oppression of women must be the context of a cartoon porn analysis.

Even though cartoons are not real bodies, cartoon porn ideology can encourage men to commit violence against women and girls; it makes sexual violence a form of entertainment. Rape ideology is disseminated through cartoon porn, just as in pornographic novels, and it can be a useful place to investigate the ideology of pornography*.

I researched clips, games, and images, all available for free on the internet. It was unnecessary to rent full movies, because I wanted to analyze free material downloaded by children. As a porn distributor who created a hentai slideshow says, Warning this Mature content [is] for [adults]Ok what im doing? You kids are going to watch it anyways*. I focused mainly on hentai, a form of cartoon porn that uses an animation-style popular in Japan, but I also discuss non-hentai cartoon porn. The popularity of these cartoons is global. I analyzed hand-drawn, computer-enhanced, and digitally-rendered cartoons on the internet, not cartoons in publications such as Hustler, because children have an easier time accessing free hardcore material from the internet than buying a porn magazine. I relied on Dworkin's elements of the pornographic (hierarchy, objectification, submission, and violence), and Jensen's analysis of pornographic books , because hentai is the portrayal of women and girls, not images of real women.

Childified Women and Adultified Children*

Women and girls in cartoon porn vary in appearance, but there are general patterns in hentai: they are light-skinned, have large eyes, and they have toned, hairless bodies. The size of the breasts varies, from smaller or no breasts for lolikon (child hentai) to more developed breasts for regular hentai (teens and women). Many times women and girls in hentai look like a mixture of adult and child. The categories of woman and child are blurred, because neither is off sexual limits. A consistent theme in hentai is sexy innocence. Adult women, teens, and children are fused into one. The large eyes, hairless genitals, and small bodies are combined with large breasts and pornographic sexual behavior.

Hentai pornographers use computer graphics to make cartoon women look three-dimensional. They mix the fantasy look of doll-like cartoons with 3D bodies. The scenes in this Hentai Game clip* are typical from mainstream porn: one woman in a porn scenario with three men. She is the virgin-whore, because her face looks like an innocent dolls or child's face, but she has porn-sex and a voluptuous body. Despite its artificiality, her body was designed with computers, which makes this form of hentai seem more real. The man is invisible, so the consumer sees her body clearly. The pornographers also used computer technology to make the skin and bones of her pelvis invisible at the end of the clip, during the ejaculation scene. This obsession with examining female genitalia is common in mainstream porn.

Even though a cartoon porn consumer might not initially look for pictures of young girls, he will eventually find them. On the Funny Games Adult site, dress-up games (strip games) involve children. In Blonde in Pyjamas*, the player clicks through some text to reach a little girls room. He can then touch her while she sleeps. In Strip Meina*, the objective of the game is to remove clothes from the girl, Meina, in the correct order. If the player does so incorrectly, he has to start over again. Her cheeks get rosier the more clothing is stripped from her, signifying arousal.

A form of legal child pornography is lolikon, a sub-genre of hentai. The 18 U.S.C. 2257 notice is at the bottom of the lolikon website, even though little girls are the focus of the site. Lolikon is intended to look like young girls or even toddlers. Children are shown pleasuring themselves with dildos and anal beads. Rape of lolikon children is normal and sometimes they look scared in the pictures, but the lolikon-pornographer controls the child's facial expression. The children are not always portrayed frightened or resisting, but they are shown enjoying being raped by multiple men. Legal child pornography (even if it is a cartoon) is dangerous, because it socializes consumers to see children as appropriate sexual partners. when we sexualize the female child, we chip away at the norms that define children as off limits to male sexual use. The more we undermine such cultural norms, the more we drag girls into the category of woman, and in a porn-saturated world, to be woman is to be a sexual object deserving of male contempt, use, and abuse.* Any form of pornography that portrays women as children or that portrays children as sex-objects might lead to an increase in child sexual abuse; the depiction of children in pornography legitimizes child sexual abuse.

Violation of Children's Entertainment

Children accidentally access cartoon porn while searching for the favorite characters online. The Disney Princesses, Rugrats, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, and Kimpossible are some modern cartoons that have been made into pornography. Pornographers invade childrens entertainment and sexualize symbols* of childhood. Children might be exposed to hardcore imagery before they have any kind of context to make sense of it. Children who see this material are affected by it. Cartoon porn of popular cartoon shows could be used as a tool against children to groom them for further sexual abuse.

Pokémon was an enormously popular cartoon a few years ago and it continues to be one of the best selling video game series worldwide. The main idea of the show involved catching pokémon (pocket monsters) in poké balls and having the pokémon battle each other. In the Ultimate Pokémon Gallery*, the girls and women from Pokémon are made into hentai. One of the most telling drawings shows May, one of the characters, penetrated by poké balls. May looks like a child, because she has innocent eyes and a childlike body. The poké balls are wet with vaginal fluid and her cheeks are rosy. Her character typically wears biker shorts. In a number of May images, her shorts are shown with holes and rips in them, suggesting violent sex or rape. The gallery even shows a female pokémon enjoying being molested by a man. Another pokémon called a Bulbasaur penetrates a girl with its tentacle-like vines. There is nothing sexual or cruel about Bulbasaur in the TV show and it is sad how the cartoon-pornographers violated this creatures image and made it into a porn-character.

Cartoon-pornographers violate children's spaces by making famous, non-sexual cartoons into pornography. The multibillion dollar filmed prostitution industry does not need any more power, but pornographers keep spreading their tentacles into any environment. Hardcore porn of familiar cartoon characters is dangerous for children, because childrens boundaries are being violated if they see these images.

Pink Whiteness

Racism is obvious in cartoon pornography. The majority of cartoon porn women/ girls are light-skinned. Women of color are invisible. The few women of color in cartoon porn are presented in a racist manner. On the Funny Games Adult site, the only women of color are the Voodoo* babe and the Latina* babe, both part of the seduce-series (these racist games are examples of U.S. cartoon porn, because they are not drawn in the hentai style and they embody stereotypes from the U.S.A.). The objective of the game is to seduce the particular woman into sex by answering questions correctly. In the Seduce Voodoo game, the woman pleasures herself with a voodoo doll. The Latina woman does so with a forty-ounce bottle of alcohol. The Latina woman is designed to look like trash and the African woman uncivilized. If women of color were the main objects in cartoon porn, this analysis would be different. Here, the racism is sexualized. While all women regardless of color are sex objects, women of color, particularly if they are African-descent or Latina are degraded further through racism. Asian women are not created as the other, because so much hentai is designed from the Japanese animation-style. Most women in hentai are Japanese or Anglo; they are both, which makes sense in a pornographic culture, because Asian and Anglo women are considered the sexiest.

Men in hentai are frequently portrayed as darker skinned than the women, even though they are not men of color per say. The whiteness of the woman's skin is accentuated by making the man who is penetrating her darker. Her skin is always pinker (nipples, vagina, and anus are pink). Websites for regular porn such as http://www.givemepink .com are evidence of the mainstream porn industry's colonization of the color pink as a signifier of women's genitalia. The skin tones of women of color do not fulfill the hentai-fantasy, because people of color don't naturally have as much pink in their skin as Anglos do, which explains their invisibility. Hentai men are never pink, because in porn, that color feminizes them. Usually the males look grayish or they are replaced by a tentacle monster which symbolizes male dominance.

The normalization of whiteness in cartoon porn promotes racist beauty standards and the othering of darker skinned women. The feminization of women through the color pink exacerbates the gender division between males and females. Cartoon-pornographers copy the patterns of mainstream pornographers and the racism they have in common is evidence of this relationship.

Violence as Entertainment

We live in a culture desensitized to and by violence. Men consuming pornography are basically silent about sexualized violence, because they are conditioned through porn to believe that aggressive sexuality is natural, masculine behavior. Todays porn consumers have also been fed from childhood, a steady diet of violence by an increasingly de-regulated media industry that offers up murder and mayhem as entertainment. Put these two together, and what you have is a generation of men who need and expect more extreme and hard core imagery than ever before...* The sexualized brutality committed on cartoon females is heightened, because a cartoon is not real flesh. Pornographers control her appearance and sexuality with colored pencils, pens, and computer technology. Cartoon pornographers push the body to limits not possible in mainstream porn.

Cartoon pornographers often portray the masculine in a non-human form and they do not limit its power. It is common for monsters, demons, animals, giant insects, and plants to rape cartoon women. In cartoon porn, rape is dehumanized and the rapist is not held accountable, because a tentacle or a plant cannot be arrested and put in jail. Cartoon pornographers frequently express masculine violence through the use of tentacles to rape women and girls.

In the Nurse Nancy Alien Sex Room* game, the player controls the speed of penetration of the nurse by an alien monster. The player controls when he wants to fill er up. Pornographers used computer technology to make Nancy's stomach invisible during the ejaculation sequence. This game is an example of a porn-stereotype of a woman who appears willing to have sex with monsters. On the Funny Games Adult site, up to four different monsters can have sex with Nancy.

Raven and Starfire, from Cartoon Networks Teen Titans* struggle while being raped in a series of clips by cartoon pornographers. Cartoon Network* is a mainstream, non-pornographic cable channel, but Teen Titans has been hijacked by the cartoon pornographers. Raven and Starfire are raped by a giant monster with penis-tentacles. Their struggle is sexualized, because the pornographer chose to show in graphic detail what the monster did to them. There is nothing Raven and Starfire can do to obtain justice, because monsters are naturally uncontrollably evil. Killing a monster does not change the fact that it raped them or that their rape is on the Wet Pussy Games website. By designing a monster, instead of a man, to rape female cartoon characters, the cartoon pornographer excuses himself from being the actual rapist.

Cartoon pornographers make rape into a game. In Kitra Stalking*, the objective of the game is to trap her with slime and seed her. Kitra is a super-heroine trapped by all limbs in green slime. She cant use her guns to shoot for defense, because the player traps her in slime by holding down his mouse pointer on her arms. Once she is trapped, he holds the mouse on pieces of her clothing which disappear. To penetrate her, he clicks and holds the mouse pointer on her vagina or mouth. If he is able to hold it long enough without getting shot by Kitra, he wins the game (ejaculates on her body). In this game, male sexual violence against a woman was literally made into a form of entertainment.

The previous cartoons are examples of women and girls experiencing incredible violence in the name of fun and games. Rape is excused and dehumanized, because the rapists in the scenarios are not even people. Monsters and penis-tentacles are not held accountable for their violence, because they do not exist in real life. We must remember that real people created these monsters and tentacle rapists. The spotlight must be kept on cartoon pornographers, because they wear a mask of non-accountability by creating fantasy images of non-humans raping women. In reality, these images have the potential to shape mens perceptions about sexual violence. Through the consumption of products that produce sexual pleasure and entertainment, men learn to sexualize inequality and objectify women's bodies such that the mistreatment and abuse that these products are predicated upon become invisible or socially insignificant.* Even though these are not real women in the flesh experiencing rape, these cartoonists make abuse of women into a joke. Cartoon porn is not a powerless fantasy.

In addition to all the violence committed against cartoon women and girls, they are frequently shown enjoying the abuse. Arousal in hentai is signified through rosy cheeks. In one video*, a hairless angel wearing a halo gets her clothing gets ripped up by tentacles that rape her; she embodies sexy innocence, because she is enjoying the degradation (her rosy cheeks indicate arousal). Her body's physical response overrides her lack of consent. No matter how she struggles, she is simultaneously portrayed as aroused. For example, the clip at the bottom of http://www.titanime .com/ shows a blonde woman with her clothing ripped as she is trying to escape an attacker. She slips and a man pulls her back as she yells, Stop it! While he is raping her, she is crying and she her cheeks are pink, so her struggle is considered prudishness or a front for her secret nymphomaniac nature. The messages in pornography about women's pleasure in submission and pain contribute to men's beliefs that sexual assault victims derive sexual pleasure from the experience.* The violence against women is made invisible and even twisted into pleasure, because the pornographer decided to make her look like she secretly loves it. It is important to keep in mind the rosy cheek sexual response of hentai's women/ girls, because it is a recurring theme and gives us insight about porn-ideology. Material portraying women as enjoying sexual abuse promotes myths about the definition* of consent and this has consequences in the real world.

Cartoon pornographers control women with a stroke of the pencil and the click of a mouse. They abuse the power of their drawing skills and technology-knowledge to make sexualized violence against women into games. They created an entire subgenre of pornography that ramps up the violence to degrees impossible in real life and they show women enjoying this pure degradation and abuse. Men are not held accountable in cartoon pornography for the rape they commit, because non-human monsters replace them. Cartoon pornographers are the brains behind these monsters and we must remember how they exercise control over women by designing these pictures and movies.

Control of women and children

Cartoon pornography is about the complete control of the construction of the female adult, young adult, and child. Cartoon pornographers have control over how they design the characters (frequently making the women and children look aroused while they are being abused). These cartoonists imitate the rape-ideology of mainstream porn. They invade children's entertainment and female characters are never immune from becoming a sex-object. Even though this material is not available on cable TV, children with access to the internet will find it while searching for familiar cartoon characters and they might be traumatized by it. Some pornographers acknowledged that pornography has reached its limits; however, technology continues to develop. With more advanced technology, porn will keep spreading and evolving. As evident in computer-enhanced cartoon porn, technology makes the images more flesh-like. Pornographers who abuse the power and knowledge of technology will continue to use it to make the world a dangerous, difficult place for women and children to live in.

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality

DESCRIPTION
 
Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality takes an unflinching look at today’s porn industry: the stories woven into the images, the impact on our culture, the effects on us as men and women, the business machine that creates and markets porn, and the growing legitimacy of porn in mainstream media. Above all, PORNLAND examines the way porn shapes and limits sexual imaginations and behaviors.
 
Although we are surrounded by pornographic images, many people are not aware of just how cruel and violent the industry is today. PORNLAND shows how today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy and Penthouse magazines — how competition in the industry and consumer desensitization have pushed porn toward hard core extremes. And, with the advent of the internet and other digital technologies, users don’t have to wander far to access porn; todaythe average age of first viewing is about 11 for boys, and studies reveal that young men, who consume more porn than ever before, have difficulty forming healthy relationships.
 
PORNLAND also looks at how our porn culture affects the way women and girls think about their bodies, their sexuality and their relationships. PORNLAND: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality argues that rather than sexually liberating or empowering us, porn offers us a plasticized, formulaic, generic version of sex that is boring, lacking in creativity and disconnected from emotion and intimacy.

Shared Hope International specifically focuses on fighting the demand for commercial sexual exploitaiton, including addressing pornography as a very significant demand factor for sex trafficking. 

Please see their excellent report on this issue:

Pornography: Creating Demand for International Sex Trafficking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."

Gloria Steinem, 2006

For information about Gloria Steinem's important work of fighting against the harms of pornography, sex trafficking and other forms of sexual exploitation and abuse, including videos and an audio interview, please see our page on Gloria Steinem. Click here.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED. PLEASE DONATE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO.

Please remember that it is not up to AntiPornography.org, the other organizations listed on this page, the government, or "someone else" to do the entire job of fighting against the devastating harms of pornography, prostitution, trafficking, and other forms of sexual exploitation or abuse. It is an enormous job and the responsibility lies with each and every one of us to do our part as part of the bigger team of those who are choosing to be part of the solution of creating a more just and humane world for everyone, rather than be part of the problem.

So thank you in advance for whatever you are able to contribute to the cause, whether in the form of a tax-deductible donation or your actions. What you do does matter, so for the sake of all those across the world who are being exploited and abused, and for the sake of the future of humanity, please do what you can to create a more compassionate and safer society for all.

Thank you for whatever you are able to give or do to help create a better world for everyone, especially for women, children and future generations.

 YOUR SUPPORTIVE ACTIONS & YOUR DONATIONS ARE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. 

THEY CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
