Shotacon (ショタコン, Shotakon), sometimes shortened to just shota, is a Japanese slang term that is technically a contraction of "Shoutarou complex" (正太郎 コンプレックス, Shōtarō konpurekkusu; obsession with young boys). It describes an attraction to young boys, or an individual with such an attraction. Outside Japan, the term is used less often with this meaning. It can refer to a genre of manga and anime wherein pre-pubescent or pubescent male characters are depicted in a suggestive or erotic manner. Shota can also refer to the type of young boys those with a shotacon are attracted to.
