Lolita Complex is the strong and persistent adult sexual interest in pubescent (early adolescent) individuals, this seems to be the general opinion of both public and the American Psychological Association.
This all seems fairly straightforward and simple to understand, clear cut and innocent enough, but don’t be fooled, this subject matter is a very very slippery slope and you can easily find yourself in trouble mearly discusing Lolicon or Lolita.
Please find below, interesting literature on the lolita complex subject from Amazon.
Please excuse our extensive referencing of Wikipedia, our knowledge on this vast intriguing subject is limited.
Pedophilia is a psychological disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a sexual preference for prepubescent children.

Nepiophilia or infantophilia is a subtype of pedophilia describing a sexual preference for toddlers and infants (usually ages 0–3).
Pedophilic disorder is further defined as a psychological disorder in which a person meets the criteria for pedophilia above, and experiences distress or interpersonal difficulty as a consequence.
Given that Pedophilia is clearly a psychological disorder, why you should ask, are individuals with pedophilic disorder not given medical help and understanding, instead of a jail sentence.
Margo Kaplan: Pedophilia Is Biological and Not a Choice
“You are confusing pedophilia (the attraction) with child abuse (the act).
Pedophilia is not the act, it is the attraction.
The attraction is not chosen, the act is chosen.
You are not morally responsible for your attraction, you are morally responsible for your act.”
I’m attracted to cowboy films, enjoy the violence, fantasize about being a gunslinger and at times, really do want to shoot someone, and I also have experiences of distress or interpersonal difficulty as a consequence, so I am, are and have paraphilia tendencies, do I get a jail sentence for that attraction?
