Why straight-shota?

# men in hentaiIn hentai anime, it always bothered me how most guys were portrayed as cruel rapists. Being a guy, this has given me a bit of a guilt complex, which often keeps me from putting guys in my own games. So I always use lesbians and forest creatures as the aggressors in my games. 
However, when I was younger I sometimes imagined what it might be like to have an older sister or a babysitter who was willing to introduce me to sex. This was obviously an idealized fantasy, but I found it comforting. I later discovered that hentai portrays these things as “Straight-Shota” 

# innocentThis is not the face of a rapist. Straight-shota works fairly well as a subsitute to including grown men. A younger character’s age conveys a comfortably harmless character to relate to; And because of this, the concept of an older girl pursuing a boy can be deeply reassuring.
