Only Doing It For The Betterment Of Us All

Time to revisit the world of “queer studies,” via the academic journal Qualitative Research:

I wanted to understand how my research participants experience sexual pleasure when reading shota, a Japanese genre of self-published erotic comics that features young boy characters. I therefore started reading the comics in the same way as my research participants had told me that they did it: while masturbating.

Hey, I’m just reading what it says here.

In this research note, I will recount how I set up an experimental method of masturbating to shota comics, and how this participant observation of my own desire not only gave me a more embodied understanding of the topic for my research but also made me think about loneliness and ways to combat it as driving forces of the culture of self-published erotic comics.

It’s embodied, you see. And before you go getting any untoward ideas, it’s all being done selflessly, high-mindedly, for the greater good:

Untangling this largely unresearched knot of desires for fictional boy characters will give us a better understanding of human sexuality and provide a more solid basis for policymaking.

The, um, research in question - by Mr Karl Andersson, a PhD student at the University of Manchester – was not without its challenges and frustrations: “I had hit a wall in my research. Semi-structured interviews can only take you so far,” we’re told. “I had a persistent feeling of only having traced the surface of my topic, and of wanting to go deeper.” And the hence the masturbation, of course.

Further, annotated and fairly graphic, details of Mr Andersson’s paedophilic self-pleasuring project – sorry, “ethnographic fieldwork” – can be perused via the link above. Should that be your thang.

Update, via the comments: 

Mags adds,

From mental masturbation to actual masturbation.

Stunning and brave.

Indeed, and given the rambling on offer, the words self-involved scarcely cover it.

As to the “embodied understanding” mentioned above, it remains unclear what exactly was achieved - beyond the obvious, I mean. Mr Andersson tells us that during three months of, er, research, and 30 notebook entries, his mind often wandered to thoughts of other gentlemen doing much the same thing with the same publications, including the copies he’d acquired second-hand. This is described as a “feeling of intimacy.” Dozing off afterwards is described as “self-care,” which is apparently important. And we’re informed that the Cellophane wrappers of his pornography collection “signalled luxury and investment in myself.” It’s Earth-rumbling stuff.

Oddly, there’s no mention of an obvious issue, to which one might suppose an enquiring mind might turn. As I understand it, the protagonists in shota are very often pre-pubescent. That this detail doesn’t appear to have concerned Mr Andersson, or his peers and supervisors, possibly tells us something about the academic circles in which he moves. Presumably, this kind of contrived edginess is itself found titillating. Sort of, “Ooh, aren’t we terribly daring. How sophisticated we are.” 

And this seems apposite:

This isn’t just someone who gets off by masturbating over pictures of children. It’s someone who gets off by everyone knowing they masturbate over pictures of children. All under the guise of “research.”

But hey, progress!

As CJ Nerd notes in the comments, Mr Andersson’s paper, and his pretence of intellectual heft, feels like a shit test. And so, one has to wonder whether the widespread and rapid propagation, not least in academia, of transgender ideology and boutique identities has emboldened other niche psychological demographics – including, seemingly, paedophiles – to make themselves known while daring us to disapprove.

We’re also told that we mustn’t assume that paedophiles “desire to harm children,” even though their desires, when enacted, via secrecy and deceit, do harm children, often catastrophically, and even though their enacted desire is, by definition, a violation, a betrayal, an act of monstrous selfishness. “There is no reason to posit intentions to harm, disrespect, or expression of ill will on the part of all or even most paedophiles,” says Dr Moen. This is despite acknowledging that such experiences leave a majority of victims with “psychological disorders… increased likelihood of drug dependence, alcohol dependence, major depression,” etc. And despite the fact that these consequences are very widely understood, at least in simple terms. And despite the fact that many paedophiles have been subjected to similar abuse themselves and therefore know first-hand the likely consequences.

Not unrelated, the Pilgrims took the area over from the Indians, the whalers from the Pilgrims, fishermen from the whalers, hippie scum from the fishermen, gays from the commie hippies, but don't you heterosexuals dare come into our "safe space".

But based on our research in Provincetown, their presence often destroys those spaces for the LGBTQ+ people who created them in the first place. We call this process “hetrification.” Like gentrification, hetrification occurs when people feel privileged to take over the spaces of others.

"Research". Right.

Gentrification operates like an invasive species. Gentrifiers take root and transform communities to the point where they become inhospitable to the original inhabitants.

It used to be considered a Bad Thing. It used to be considered an encroachment on an individual's property rights.

Now not only are people going to have the local mob after them if they purchase a property or open a business while being the wrong color, but Those People should not even patronize a business least they contaminate the scared space of the anointed.

Vincent Jones II is assistant professor of community health and director of the Health Promotion Center at York College. Laurie Essig is professor and director of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Middlebury College. Her most recent book is “Love, Inc.: Dating Apps, Big White Weddings, and Chasing the Happily Neverafter.”

Poor old Jones Two trying to justify the analogy of the article by getting a word in about "racialized intergenerational transfer of wealth through real estate" but what his co-author obviously wants to talk about is conventional popular girls "trying to escape their straight world", "displaced by rape culture and seek refuge in queer spaces", but choosing a night of bawdy titillation in a tourist-friendly gay club instead of having their consciousness raised in a lesbian club.

Perhaps instead of Experimental Wanking™, Mr. Anderssen just needs a cuddle.

Trevor James, who is certified in the art of the snuggle and the caress, will offer any of eighty positions, amid what he calls a “touch-deprivation crisis.

Not just certified, but dual board certified by Cuddle Professionals International, in the U.K., and Cuddle Sanctuary, in Los Angeles. I wonder if there is something like the MCAT you have to take.

James has Zoom sessions for people who feel safer cuddling alone.

I may be old fashioned, but I think that misses the point.

Down a hallway hung with Robert Mapplethorpe photographs is the carpeted treatment room. James lay on a bed and took up the “stargazing position,” ...

Now I don't want to get all stereotypical here, but a hallway festooned with Mapplethorpe might make one think "cuddling" might just be an euphemism.

I am slightly curious as to what Mr. Andersson was doing between 2003 and 2018.

David

Reading it so you don’t have to...

The paper is remarkable only in the author’s self-involvement and how little there is there. Setting aside issues of illegality and the pathologies of paedophilia, which are not addressed, at all, the paper itself is laughably feeble. The lines quoted above – about a “feeling of intimacy” and the wrappers of Mr Andersson’s porn stash - are much of the supposed substance of the thing. The rest is largely self-involved rambling - as “autoethnography” usually is. And this, it seems, is what is considered good enough for academia’s Clown Quarter.

As CJ Nerd said upthread, it feels like a shit test. And so, one has to wonder whether the widespread and rapid propagation, not least in academia, of transgender ideology and boutique identities has emboldened other niche psychological demographics – including, seemingly, paedophiles – to make themselves known while daring us to disapprove.

Nikw211

Mr Andersson refers to himself as a “visual anthropologist.”

Scanning his the thumbnails of Mr Andersson's videos, my eye was drawn to one called "My first PhD year ends in FAIL" in which he explains:

    I've been working a lot on my ethics application - because all research needs to be approved by an ethical committee before fieldwork commences. And, unfortunately, my research was given an unfavourable opinion, which means that it failed, uh, thoroughly

He doesn't offer any details as to what resulted in the unfavourable opinion or even if it's related to that Qualitative Research article.

But since his article refers - in the plural - to "anthropologists having sex with research participants in order to understand a certain practice, such as anonymous sex" it certainly raises an eyebrow as to what he might have been turned down for.

Incidentally, this is the abstract from anthropological sexy time article he mentions (my italics):

    This article addresses the use of sexual relations with research informants in fieldwork for the purpose of gathering information.The analysis is based on the research that the author himself carried out between 2009 and 2014 on anonymous sexual encounters between men in public places in Catalonia.

    The article aims to demonstrate that sexual interaction with informants – notwithstanding appeals to scientific objectivity and professional ethics – can be a useful tool for gaining a better understanding of social reality.

    This study on anonymous sex shows that participating in sexual activity can provide the researcher with a great deal of information which would not be accessible via other relationships with research informants. However, the article also addresses certain limitations – which cannot be ignored – in fieldwork of this sort and in the interpretation of the data obtained.

I don't have access to the full article, but goodness only knows how this was legal let alone ethical - and ethically approved.

David

He doesn’t offer any details as to what resulted in the unfavourable opinion…

Mr Andersson is quite practised at being evasive and disingenuous. In another video, he feigns being puzzled by why anyone would imagine that an appetite for cartoon pornography involving sexualised children, including the pre-pubescent, would have any relation at all to the real-world sexual abuse of minors. “Why would we think that?” he asks, as if the connection were esoteric and inexplicable. As if paedophilic predators didn’t search out such things and find them every bit as “fascinating” as Mr Andersson says he does.

CJ Nerd

By the way, I’m still available for babysitting. How is little Tommy?”

Well TBF on the gentrification thing, I have seen some tired, run down areas that were significantly improved when gays discovered them and moved in. Wilton Manors in the Ft. Lauderdale area was for a long time an area of overgrown vegetation, dreary houses that needed a good pressure wash and coat of paint, etc. These were smaller homes built in the 1960's that are simply too small for what middle class families want today. Gays moved in, converted the 3BR/2BA homes to 2BR/2BA and the difference was night and day. Haven't been through that area in 10 years or so. Hopefully it still is in good shape. Last I heard the city council there was all-gay. It would be a pity if some slob heteros were to drag the standards down. But then gay of 20 years ago might not be the gay of today. I wouldn't know but if what I see on social media these days is any indication...well...

Farnsworth M Muldoon

That. The pedos want their 'pride' now.

David

The pedos want their ‘pride’ now.

Well, there does seem to have been quite a bit of nonce-as-oppressed-minority sentiment appearing recently in academia’s Clown Quarter and Clown-adjacent areas - Allyn Walker, Miranda Galbreath, Ole Martin Moen, etc – along with the conceit that in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children, we must stop being judgmental of the adults who wish to molest them and thereby ruin their lives.

If you poke through his videos, you’ll see that Mr Andersson has embraced the mannerisms and affectations of his leftist academic peers – the use of “whiteness” and “white privilege,” etc., and the default air of moral and intellectual superiority. And this is done while presenting paedophilic masturbation as some feat of scholarship, while breaking British law, and despite having published a magazine that exploited children in, shall we say, unsavoury ways. Those 10-year-olds in speedos that so “fascinate” Mr Andersson.

Typically disingenuous, Mr Andersson framed his own unhappy psychodrama – sexualised photos of small boys juxtaposed with headlines about the rape and murder of children – as an “artwork,” while resenting any use of the word paedophilia.

[ Added: ]

Oh, and as Ben Sixsmith notes in his article, linked upthread, plenty of those aforementioned academic peers hurried to Mr Andersson’s defence via Twitter. Whether they were fully aware of what it is they were defending so breathlessly is unclear. Perhaps the words “ethnography” and “queer studies” were all they needed to know before rushing to a decision as to who the good guys were.

Justin employs critical theories and qualitative methods to dismantle deficit-based understandings of queer and trans communities in postsecondary education, particularly trans Communities of Color.
