Nepiophilia (from Greek nepio-, "infant," + -philia, "love"), also called infantophilia, is an erotic attraction to, or (very rare) age preference for infants or toddlers. The term is commonly used in MAP communities and among paraphiles to distinguish this attraction from an attraction to older prepubescent children (which is called pedophilia) and adolescents (which is called ephebophilia or hebephilia). The age range nepiophilia covers is often stated as 0 to 3 years old, but varies widely.

Toddlercon is a type of Lolicon or Shotacon that features drawn toddlers and babies.

Nepio Caterpillar

Nepiophilia/Infantophilia is often categorized as a subset of pedophilia - notably by psychiatrists and psychologists. Owing to the rarity of preferential nepiophilia, MAPs tend towards using these chronophilia terms to describe two separate concepts. The status of nepiophilia as a paraphilia, fetish or fixation is sometimes debated within these communities.

Generally, MAPs are inclusive towards nepiophiles, regardless of their pro-c stance or otherwise. In a number of cases, MAPs who are generally pro-c, are anti-c with regard to nepiophilia, or support law reforms that would not encompass nepiophiliac behavior.

Symbolism

There is no widely accepted symbol for nepiophiles, although some graphics have been published by Pediverse users.[1]

  • Research: Nonwestern Intergenerational Relationships - and its resources such as Growing Up Sexually, includes many references to Nepi-compatible behaviours among primitive people (baby play). These, however would tend to have arisen due to (the lack of) cultural norms, as opposed to higher levels of Nepiophilia. In these less restrictive societies, the coddling of infants includes the genitals, and is thought to play a role in pacifying them.
