Main Perverse Sexual Lust Discussion

I propose this be renamed. Perverse Sexual Lust is a term that can be used to describe all perverse fetishes (e.g. coprophilia, pedophilia, Bestiality Is Depraved). I think a better name for this is the "Galatea Effect" or "Galatea Syndrome" from the Classical tale of an IRL human falling in love with his own fictional construct. PSL is too vague but Galatea Effect falls precisely with the core concept: real humans falling in love with artificial characters. Or, if you want to be more Japanese-ish, let's coin "Mai Waifu" instead.

what about in-universe examples? its worthy add some here or can it lead to natter?

I was wondering about that too. Is there any particular reason there are no examples at all instead of in-universe examples only?

I'd like to know, too.

Same here, I'm sure there are plenty of worthy in-universe examples.

I concur: we should include examples of in-universe examples.

I'd also like to nominate cases like Erin Esurance, who recently got axed because PSL had so completely taken over her image. I'm not sure whether having the widespread existence of PSL explicitly confirmed by the creators provides extra validation above and beyond the "I think this cartoon character is hot" of most non-in-universe examples.

I also agree as per in-universe.

I agree.

You might want to offer that up in Ask The Tropers or Trope Repair Shop.

This was what happened the last time it went through Trope Repair Shop. More precisely, it's why nothing happened.

Why is this called PERVERSE Sexual Lust? That is simply revealing certain cultural biases and veering into Acceptable Targets. Was this trope named after a quote or something? Otherwise, I don't see a justification for calling it perverse if we are trying to be neutral.

Did you actually read the page? It's in direct reference to the forums for It's Walky (and of course is now associated with the entire Walkyverse.)

I've read the page and still it doesn't really match up. PSL can be used to describe ANY sex offender, from Bestiality Is Depraved to pedophiles. But when the topic of IRL men falling in love with Fictional Characters, it's easier to thik a "Pygmalion and Galatea Effect" than the over-generalised PSL. And nobody cares about It's Walky.

Not trying to be a bug, but when will the examples be moved over to the fetish fuel wiki? There was a huge troper tales section that got cut and was supposed to be moved to the other wiki.
11:15:24 AM Jul 9th 2011
I think that wiki is it's own thing, we aren't related to it all except for the fact that it was created due to Fetish Fuel being cut from here. If you guys have the source from Google Cache or wherever (probably gone by now) you should go ahead and add it over there.

I've never been over there, never really plan to, so I can't help. Sorry.

I so want to index this in Depressing Tropes.

Pretty sure that's from an image generator. As in, you supply an image (Kamina), it sticks it over whatever was really there.
