THE INTERNET AND CHILHOOD-RELATED FANTASIES
IF you’re interested in the subject of THE INTERNET AND CHILHOOD-RELATED FANTASIES (sexuality as a medium to express childhood nostalgia), I decided to put my essay online!
This dissertation will explore the ambiguous modern notions of childhood and how this definition relates to three Internet paraphilic communities that all share a common point of embarkation: a sexual fantasy based in/around childhood and its associated symbols. They all share a deep connection to the drive for childhood-nostalgia. However, society treats these paraphiliacs differently, with some cultures taking a more muted stance than others.
This dissertation is an attempt to use the lens of the online world to bring these differences into sharp focus.
