PhD student in UK who masturbated to manga about young boys for research paper triggers investigation

  • The University of Manchester in England and peer-reviewed scientific journal Qualitative Research announced they are investigating the published paper written by Karl Andersson, a visual anthropologist and Ph.D. student, on April 26.
  • The paper, titled “I am not alone – we are all alone: Using masturbation as an ethnographic method in research on shota subculture in Japan,” gave explicit, graphic details on how Andersson masturbated to Japanese comics depicting young boys for three months.
  • “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,” Andersson wrote in the nearly 4,000-word paper.
  • Outrage soon spread online after a netizen on Mumsnet, a popular London-based internet forum for parents, shared the paper and called it a "PhD. in w*nking."
  • Several Twitter users also called out Andersson and those responsible for publishing the paper.
  • “Why should hard-working taxpayers in my constituency have to pay for an academic to write about his experiences masturbating to Japanese porn?” Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) Neil O’Brien tweeted.
