Description

The Lolita Effect is the sexualization of young girls and the projection of them as sex objects. The connection between The Lolita Effect and Social Learning Theory is cultivated through the media, such as television, magazines, video games, movies and social media. In this paper, the various mediums of media and other industries, such as the fashion industry, are analyzed by the content each produce, the advertising style, the directed audience and the effect on the audience. The Lolita Effect is composed of five myths, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it, “The anatomy of a sex goddess,” “Pretty babies,” “Violence is sexy” and “What boys like.” These myths are bolstered by media to promote an idea of female sexuality and is enforced by Social Learning Theory through reinforcement, imitation and the modeling process that can ultimately become detrimental to society without proper education and conversation about the effect.
