[UPDATE] BORED TO DEATH (2009): Saint Ann's High School Student Strips for Writer

Here's an excerpt from the first edition of The Allure of Nymphets:

The portrayal of sexually assertive teenagers is not restricted to networks like The CW and ABC Family, which primarily cater to women and teenagers. For example, on the adult HBO show Bored to Death, Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman), who moonlighted as a private detective while he worked on his second novel, was approached by a young woman at a New York Movie Society party. She initially ignored Jonathan advances, but she became very interested in Jonathan after she saw him talking to her, “...favorite director of all-time!”

Once she found out that Jonathan was going to revise a screenplay for her favorite director, the next shot showed them kissing passionately on the balcony of the venue. Eventually, she invited Jonathan back to her place, which turned out to be her father’s brownstone in Brooklyn. Jonathan agreed to go back to “her place” after he confirmed that she was a senior at New York University and that she was in her early twenties. She reassured Jonathan that, in her opinion, their age difference would not be a problem because, as she stated, “Thirty is cool. [But] I’ve been with guys older than you.”

When they got out of the cab at the brownstone, she noticed that her father had returned early from his trip; so, they made a detour to her father’s home office in the basement where the following dialogue took place.

“Do you want to go to my prom with me?” She asked Jonathan in between kisses.
“NYU has proms?” Jonathan asked.
“Oh shit. I’m drunk. I should be honest with you. I don’t go to NYU.” She confessed.
“Where do you go? Hunter?”Jonathan asked.
“St. Anns.”
“The high school? How old are you?”
“Old enough.”
“Wait! Whoa, whoa. You want me to go to your senior prom, right? And you’re eighteen?”
“No junior prom.”
“You’re seventeen!”
“Sixteen-years-old?!” Jonathan exclaimed in disbelief.
“But I’ll be seventeen in two weeks.” She said innocently.

She attempted to console Jonathan by telling him that she had lost her virginity when she was fifteen and that, despite being sixteen, she probably knew more about sex than he did. After Jonathan informed her that he felt really guilty about being with a girl so young and that he wanted to leave, she told him that she felt compelled to give him a memento. 

Then she stood on top of her father’s office table, lifted her black mini dress, and revealed a pair of pink panties and a matching bra. As the sixteen-year-old was about to remove her panties, her father entered his office and forced Jason to escape through the bathroom window - mistakenly leaving his script behind.

Here is the part of the episode that left me utterly bewildered: When Jonathan went to his best friend Ray (Zach Galifianakis) for advice on how to get the script back, Ray advised him to simply call the dad and ask for the script, which was reasonable advice, but Jason reminded Ray, “She’s only 16-years-old.” 

Now read Ray’s sensationally out of left field question!

You didn’t sodomize her did you?”
“No.” Jonathan responded.
“That’s too bad.” Ray said despondently.

Ray was actually disappointed that Jonathan didn't have anal sex with the, by New York standards, underage high school student. I was actually surprised that the FCC allowed a television show to air, even on cable, a dialogue that condoned the idea of a sixteen-year-old being sodomized by a thirty-year-old or anyone for that matter.

[UPDATE] NOCE BLANCHE (1989): A French Nymphet Seduces Her Philosophy Teacher

One notable difference between ephebophilia themed films made in France and films produced in the United States is that French films typically show nymphets in the nude. One notable American exception is Pretty Baby (1978) where, after having her virginity auctioned off, Violet (ten-year-old Brooke Shields) was shown bathing in the nude after having her virginity taken by a middle-aged john.  

Noce Blanche (1989), which was written and directed by the famous and infamous Jean-Claude Brisseau, is no exception. Mathilde (Vanessa Paradis), a seventeen-year-old nymphet, was shown in the nude within minutes and repeatedly throughout the film.

In the French film, after Mr. Hainauta, the high school philosophy teacher, told his wife what an "amazing" student Mathilde was, she asked, "Are you in love with her?" 

"You're so silly." he replied. 

"Promise me it won't happen." she pleaded. 
"No need to promise. I've never fancied young girls." 

But that only lasted until the next scene. Mr. Hainauta suddenly "fancied young girls" after Mathilde seductively touched his hand while he helped her edit an essay . 

And that is often how legal and illegal age-discrepant relationships begin. Middle-aged men are typically clueless about their ability to be with nymphets; therefore, the nymphets are often the seducers. 

Consequently, after their affair was in full swing, Mathilde asked her teacher to leave his wife, but he refused. 

"Because of school?" Mathide asked.
"You're 17." the teacher replied.
"So what?"
"In ten years I'll be an old man."
"Whether you're old ... it won't change anything." 

Vanessa Paradis won the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her role in Noce Blanche.

Famous Ephebophile Anthony Weiner: Another Ephebophile Entrapped by a Nymphet

The Daily Mail reported that fifty-one-year-old Anthony Weiner had an online affair with a fifteen-year-old high school sophomore. It's important to note that the nymphet initiated the affair, confessed that it was consensual and shared that she was obsessed the Weiner.

Excerpts from The Daily Mail piece:

Although the girl said she did not want to press charges because she believes her relationship with Weiner was consensual

The girl first reached out to Weiner on the evening of January 23, 2016, when she noticed his Twitter page allowed non-followers to contact him through direct private messages. 

She told she was interested in politics and had heard about his sexting scandals, and was curious to see what he was like.  
It was clear from the messages that she was encouraging Weiner to engage with her in a sexual manner. She told she didn't consider Weiner her boyfriend, but thought the relationship was a 'romantic' one.

She acknowledged during interviews that she had developed an obsession with Weiner, and sought him out on Twitter in January while trying to write a book about him. She said she continued to write the book as their relationship developed.

Once again, an ephebophile wasn't able to resist the temptation of a nymphet, and the nymphet is being hailed as the innocent victim when they both should be scolded.

Triple X Books: [Nymphet] Porn for the Literate

Triple X Books provides porn for the literate - "Every genre, every fetish! You name it, we've got a book on it! Thousands of titles. Pure reading enjoyment awaits!"

Here's the site's Bestseller list:

01. STAG-224 Pre-Teen Whore by Tim O. Forrest 
02. LB-1111 Dog-Raped Bride by Hank Borden 
03. PB-154 Her Three Dog Night by John Kellerman 
04. PB-209 Carla's Beast Rape by Paul Gable 
05. AB-1659 Little Daughter Orgy by Joe Foss 
06. PB-293 Daughter In The Kennels by Ted Leonard 
07. LB-1063 Schoolgirl Dog Lover by Bob Wallace 
08. PB-132 Beast Rape by Paul Gable 
09. LLP-0571 Abducted In Africa by Peggy Carter 
10. PB-213 Dog-Raped Virgin by John Kellerman 

The general theme on the site is (very) young sex, but books that feature bestiality and incest (i.e., child abuse) are prevalent. In addition, there are a plethora of teacher-student themed books. 

I would opine that the bestiality and incest are consequences of reading (and watching) too much pornography. Inevitably, what was once titillating (e.g., nymphet lipstick lesbians) may not be titillating anymore, which is one of the reasons why we at The Allure of Nymphets advise (acting) ephebophiles to, like Elvis, marry age-appropriate nymphets and avoid pornography. Trust us, if you possess a lovely seventeen-year-old jeune femme, you probably wouldn't spend your time reading Foss' Little Daughter Orgy.

Who authors these books? In 2014, I posted a review of Orgy Maid and in the novella twelve-year-old Lonnie Garth is continuously raped, sometimes via double-penetration, by her brother-in-laws. And the nymphet's drunken father-in-law forces himself upon her as well. But Lonnie's rapes weren't anomalies. On page five it states:

In the hill country of Tennessee, where Lonnie Garth was born, they have a quaint little folk saying about virginity. “A virgin,” they say, “is a five-year-old girl who can outrun her daddy and her brothers.”

On page thirty-one Lonnie was told, "You been getting loved since you were six, I bet. Your brothers and your old man got there first."

Eventually, just like a number of women in The Secret Garden, Lonnie fantasized about being raped by her brother-in-law. For example, in the novella it states "... deep down, she had wanted to be raped by Gary Holston, she had wanted to be known by some man not her husband, somebody with Gary's elemental ferocity and force."

Twelve-year-old Lonnie even began to relish lipstick lesbian sex after her brother-in-laws forced her to have sex with a "slim, sixteen-year-old redhead named Peg Marron" who had "... lavishly voluptuous buttocks of a Rubens nude".

Who authors these books? You may be shocked to learn that Orgy Maid was written by Robert Silverberg (pseud.Don Elliott) who is a Brooklyn born graduate of Columbia University with a B.A. in English Literature, and a multiple winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards. 

Lastly, I don't want play Devil's Advocate, but there is some truth to the bestiality sold on Triple X Books. For example, a number of women shared in My Secret Garden that they had fantasies that involved the fetish. For example, "Nina '...discovered the delights of masturbation, at the age of seven...' She used to imagine that her girlfriend was rubbing between her legs or that her girlfriend's dog was licking her vagina."

LE VOLEUR D'ENFANTS (1991): A French Orphan Seduces the Colonel

Le Voleur D'enfants (1991) [English: The Children Thief] is a film set in 1925 Paris that was based on a novel by Jules Supervielle. 

In the French film, Colonel Philemon Bigua and his wife can't beget; so, they platonically open the doors of their opulent mansion to Parisian orphans. 

However, after Gabrielle (Virginie Ledoyen), a nymphet, enters the mansion, she seduces the Colonel, which shifts their relationship from platonic to romantic.

Virginie Ledoyen, was fifteen-years-old when Le Voleur D'enfants was released; thus, she may have been fourteen-years-old when her totally nude, but non-sexual, scenes were filmed.

Lastly, I for one I'm not surprised that Nabokov, as Boyd wrote in Vladimir Nabokov: The Russian Years, "[...] found the poet Jules Supervielle 'terribly nice and talented,' and they quickly became friends. He translated some of Supervielle's verse into Russian [...]" And Stanislav Shvabrin of the University of North Carolina may have found a link between Supervielle's Bigua and Nabokov's Humbert.

LA SEDUZIONE (1973): A Sicilian Nymphet Seduces Her Mother's Lover

In La Seduzione (1973), after Giuseppe returns to Sicily from his successful job as a journalist in Paris, he attempts to revive his affair with widowed Caterina; however, Graziella, Caterina's fifteen-year-old daughter, seduces Giuseppe with dire consequences for the Italian love triangle. 

In a New York Times piece about Nabokov's Lolita, Charles McGrath wrote that Robertson Davies opined that Lolita wasn't about "[...] the corruption of an innocent child by a cunning adult, but the exploitation of a weak adult by a corrupt child."

I wrote in The Allure of Nymphets that Aristotle opined in Poetics (335 BCE/1937), his classical treatise on the principles of literary theory, that art imitates life. And Oscar Wilde opined in The Decay of Lying that "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life". 

Thus, it isn't surprising that in many legal and illegal age-gap affairs, the seductions were initiated by nymphets. Consequently, there have been a number of real-life Giuseppes who weren't strong enough to resist the charms of real-life Graziellas.

LA CASA DE LAS PALOMAS (1972): A Spanish Nymphet Seduces Her Mother's Lover

Here's a summary of what Lazarillo wrote on IMDB about La casa de las palomas (1972) [English: The House of the Doves]:

This is really a coming-of-age story about a young girl (Ornela Muti) who has a sexual affair with the spurned gigolo lover of her beautiful mother (Lucia Bose)[...]. [The] title "House of the Doves" [...]comes from a strange dove-invested hotel/brothel where the girl and her lover rendezvous.

Lucia Bose and Ornella Muti are both very appealing, especially given their respective overripe and underripe ages (Muti was kind of Italian Brooke Shields at this time but with talent [...]) This is not really an exploitative mother-daughter fantasy, however--it's arty [...]. 

This movie is simply non-exploitative in any way, which isn't a bad thing, especially when it's a movie about the sexual coming-of-age of a fifteen-year-old girl (and one who was played by an actress of about the same age). 

And the opening scene implies that any of the Spanish schoolgirls would have been pleased to have had an affair with the gigolo.

Marianne Sinclair's HOLLYWOOD LOLITA

Marianne Sinclair's Hollywood Lolita
I've used anecdotes from Marianne Sinclair's Hollywood Lolita to enlighten the forthcoming second edition of The Allure of Nymphets. Here's a sampling:

I related in The Allure of Nymphets and in a previous post that Sarracino and Scott wrote in The Porning of America  that forty-four-year-old Frank Sinatra had an affair with fourteen-year-old Tuesday Weld. Tuesday ironically became famous for turning down the role of Lolita in Kubrick’s adaption of the novel. But Marianne Sinclair shared in Hollywood Lolita that Tuesday declared, “I didn't have to play Lolita, I was Lolita.” 

Tuesday Weld
In addition to her affair with Sinatra, “Tuesday, by her own admission, was having her first 'real affair' at eleven [...]” Tuesday's other famous lovers included Albert Finney, John Barrymore, Terence Stamp, George Hamilton and Gary Lockwood. As for her film career, Tuesday eventually accepted a role in the movie Pretty Poison (1968) as Sue Ann, a high school cheerleader who had an affair with a middle-aged ex-convict. 

In 1977, Academy Award nominated film director Roman Polanski admittedly drugged, raped and sodomized thirteen-year-old Samantha Geimer. Judge Laurence J. Rittenband sentenced Polanski to a 90-day evaluation but forty-two days later Polanski’s psychiatric report recommended that he be released with time served.

Sinclair shared that after Polanski returned to Europe, not only did he film Tess (1979), which won three Oscars, but that the forty-nine-year-old filmmaker began a relationship with Nastassja Kinski, the fifteen-year-old star of the film. Kinski defended Polanski's rape of Geimer by stating that Polanski was the victim and that he was “unfairly condemned because he was famous.” 

Nastassja Kinski

But maybe none of this should be surprising after reading Polanski's confession. Polanski confessed to cameramen at the 1977 Cannes Film Festival, “I've never hidden the fact that I love young girls. Once and for all, I love very young girls.” And he confided in his autobiography “Many women seem irresistibly attracted by notoriety, and many – especially since the Los Angeles affair – are eager to meet me.”

Sinclair wrote “Predictably, Pretty Baby did for Brooke what Taxi Driver had done for Jodie. At twelve-years-old, Brooke became 'The World's Youngest Sex Symbol'”.Sinclair shared an anecdote from Terri, Shields' mother, about the first time her daughter posed in the nude. “When Brooke was eight, she was asked to pose nude, and it was no problem. She just took her clothes off, put her foot on a chair. [And asked,] “This is the sort of thing you want?”

Elizabeth Taylor and Robert Taylor

Sinclaire related that Elizabeth Taylor “had a large bust at an age when many girls are still as flat as boys,” “Her very first date, arranged by MGM, was with a thirty-five-year-old studio escort, when she was only fourteen,” and by the age of sixteen she was considered “a full-blown sex-goddess' when she played the spouse of thirty-seven-year-old Robert Taylor in the spy film Conspirator (1949). On the set of the film Taylor complained to her tutor, “How can I concentrate on my education when Robert Taylor keeps sticking his tongue down my throat?”

Beverly Aadland & Errol Flynn
Lastly, Beverly Aadland’s mother wrote in her book The Beautiful Pervert “My Beverly was only fifteen and still a virgin when she met [forty-eight-year-old] Errol Flynn. A few hours later, she was still fifteen…but she wasn’t a virgin anymore.” Beverly went on to co-star with Flynn in Cuban Rebel Girls (1959). 

PERRAS (2011): A Mexican Nymphet F_cks a Senator "Every Possible Way"

Here's the plot summary for Perras (2011) [English: Bitches] from IMDB: 

Ten girls are suspected of committing a horrible crime, and until they confess, they won't be able to leave their school.

While the schoolgirls waited, in between frolicking and raunchy behavior, they shared personal stories. 

Seventeen-year-old Patricia shared that she was expelled from Regio, her previous "fancy" school, after her mother examined a picture of Patricia with a senator's "thing" in her mouth. 

Patricia described the senator as "cute", "good looking", with "plump lips", "a tiny nose" and a "tight butt". The senator had a reputation for raping girls from fancy schools, but Patricia confessed, "We weren't scared. Actually, we all prayed for him to look at us."

The first time the senator delayed Patricia, he unzipped his pants and Patricia boasted "I knew what he wanted." And two weeks later, after he ordered her to remove her schoolgirl uniform, she bragged, "I fucked him in every possible way." 

Perras was originally a 2008 play that was written by Guillermo Ríos, the film's director. The film premiered two years later in Mexico City.

LA LUCHA CON LA PANTERA(1975): Mexican Nymphets Whom Desire Men

Here's the plot summary posted on IMDB for La Lucha Con La Pantera (1975):

Living in the 1970s is hard. For example, three nymphets struggle to have a beneficial youth: Ana (Mildred Macías) is suicidal [and desires her profesor], Mercedes (Marissa Makendosky) is attracted to her brother William (Enrique Novi) and Patricia (Rocío Brambila) desires to be sexually abused. 

Ana stalks her literature profesor, which leads to teacher-student sex. Much like in non-fiction, the coed initiated the affair, but the teacher didn't have enough self-control to repel her advances. And similar to the nymphet fantasies spelled out in Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies, Mercedes stalks her brother which leads to a passionate incestuous kiss and Patricia's desire to be sexually abused leads to autoerotism. 

In addition to the (middle) schoolgirl teleiophilia, the fact that the nymphets appeared to be Mexicans of European descent was striking. 

(La Lucha Con La Pantera (1975) was adapted from a novella by José de la Colina.)

Famous Ephebophile: Lord Byron

I (temporarily) abandoned MacCarthy's Byron Life and Legend on page 217 for Gilot and Lake's Life with Picasso (Gilot met Picasso when she was twenty-one, and he was sixty-two.) specifically because MacCarthy didn't cover Byron's writing process. However, I did cull that Byron was an (acting) ephebophile. 

Initially, Byron's affection was for Lady Oxford but it "transferred from the mother to the daughters, beautiful, well read, [and] precocious children". Byron was "bowled over by attractions of the eldest daughter, Lady Jane Harley, then sixteen, describing her in his dairy as 'a delightful creature, but un pea libre'."

"[B]ut his favorite was her younger sister Lady Charlotte, at eleven, was at the age of promise which most moved him, the child on the edge of puberty."

Lady Charlotte as Ianthe

"Lady Oxford's daughter Charlotte is the subject of the famous and much anthologised five stanzas "To Ianthe," fragile flower of the narcissus [...] In these stanzas [...] Byron celebrates the girl's evasive charm and addresses the painful ambiguities of their relationship:"

"To Ianthe"

Not in those climes where I have late been straying,
Though Beauty long hath there been matchless deemed,
Not in those visions to the heart displaying
Forms which it sighs but to have only dreamed,
Hath aught like thee in Truth or Fancy seemed:
Nor, having seen thee, shall I vainly seek
To paint those charms which varied as they beamed—
To such as see thee not my words were weak;
To those who gaze on thee what language could they speak?

Ah! may'st thou ever be what now thou art,
Nor unbeseem the promise of thy Spring—
As fair in form, as warm yet pure in heart,
Love's image upon earth without his wing,
And guileless beyond Hope's imagining!
And surely she who now so fondly rears
Thy youth, in thee, thus hourly brightening,
Beholds the Rainbow of her future years,
Before whose heavenly hues all Sorrow disappears.

Young Peri of the West! — 'tis well for me
My years already doubly number thine;
My loveless eye unmoved may gaze on thee,
And safely view thy ripening beauties shine;
Happy, I ne'er shall see them in decline;
Happier, that, while all younger hearts shall bleed,
Mine shall escape the doom thine eyes assign
To those whose admiration shall succeed,
But mixed with pangs to Love's even loveliest hours decreed.

Oh! let that eye, which, wild as the Gazelle's,
Now brightly bold or beautifully shy,
Wins as it wanders, dazzles where it dwells,
Glance o'er this page, nor to my verse deny
That smile for which my breast might vainly sigh
Could I to thee be ever more than friend:
This much, dear Maid, accord; nor question why
To one so young my strain I would commend,
But bid me with my wreath one matchless Lily blend.

Such is thy name with this my verse entwined;
And long as kinder eyes a look shall cast
On Harold's page, Ianthe's here enshrined
Shall thus be first beheld, forgotten last:
My days once numbered — should this homage past
Attract thy fairy fingers near the Lyre
Of him who hailed thee loveliest, as thou wast—
Such is the most my Memory may desire;
Though more than Hope can claim, could Friendship less require?

Byron commissioned for Richard Westall to paint the nymphet's portrait, and he shared "I should love [Charlotte] forever if she could always be only eleven years old [...]" 

However, it appears that Byron's affections went too far. "Lady O[xford] detected him one day in an attempt upon her daughter, then a child of thirteen, & was enraged with him to the greatest degree."

[UPDATED] Was Nabokov a Hebephile\Ephebophile?

Readers of this blog are most likely familiar with Nabokov's Lolita, but they may not be familiar with his six other books that share a similar theme of hebephilia\ephebophilia with Lolita:

The Enchanter 
Laughter in the Dark 
Ada or Ador: A Family Chronicle
Transparent Things
Look at the Harlequins!
The Original of Laura

And some of Nabokov's published poetry contains the theme of hebephilia\ephebophilia. In “Lilith”, which can be found in his Selected Poems (2012), he wrote:
I died. The sycamores and shutters
along the dusty street were teased
by torrid Aeolus.

I walked,
and fauns walked, and in every faun
god Pan I seemed to recognize:
Good. I must be in Paradise.

Shielding her face and to the sparkling sun
showing a russet armpit, in a doorway
there stood a naked little girl.
She had a water-lily in her curls
and was as graceful as a woman. Tenderly
her nipples bloomed, and I recalled
the springtime of my life on earth,
when through the alders on the river brink
so very closely I could watch
the miller’s youngest daughter as she stepped
out of the water, and she was all golden,
with a wet fleece between her legs.

And now, still wearing the same dress coat
that I had on when killed last night,
with a rake’s predatory twinkle,
toward my Lilith I advanced.
She turned upon me a green eye
over her shoulder, and my clothes
were set on fire and in a trice
dispersed like ashes.

In the room behind
one glimpsed a shaggy Greek divan,
on a small table wine, pomegranates,
and some lewd frescoes covering the wall.
With two cold fingers childishly
she took me by my emberhead [пламя – i.e., erect penis]:
“now come along with me,” she said.

Without inducement, without effort,
Just with the slowest of pert glee,
like wings she gradually opened
her pretty knees in front of me.
And how enticing, and how merry,
her upturned face! And with a wild
lunge of my loins I penetrated
into an unforgotten child.
Snake within snake, vessel in vessel,
smooth-fitting part, I moved in her,
through the ascending itch forefeeling
unutterable pleasure [восторг – i.e., approaching orgasm] stir.
But suddenly she lightly flinched,
retreated, drew her legs together,
and grasped a veil and twisted it
around herself up to the hips,
and full of strength, at half the distance
to rapture [блаженству - i.e., orgasm], I was left with nothing.
I hurtled forward. A strange wind
caused me to stagger. “Let me in!”
I shouted, noticing with horror
that I stood again outside in the dust
and that obscenely bleating youngsters
were staring at my pommeled lust [булаву – mace i.e., erect penis].
“Let me come in!” And the goat-hoofed,
copper-curled crowd increased. “Oh, let me in,”
I pleaded, “otherwise I shall go mad!”
The door stayed silent, and for all to see
writhing in agony I spilled my seed
and knew abruptly that I was in Hell.
(The words in the brackets are from Maxim D. Shrayer's Russian Literature journal article "Nabokov's Sexography".)

Nabokov shared in Poems and Problems that “Lilith” was composed “to amuse a friend.” In Pniniad, Marc Szeftel, whom many claim was the model for Nabokov's Pnin, shared an anecdote that was related to him by Gleb Struve, an associate of Nabokov:

“Struve tells about a private evening devoted to Nabokov's erotical (or even pornographical) poetry, read by him. Of these poems only “Lilith” has been published in N.'s 'Poems and Problems'...This reading happened when N. was not yet married...What was on young Nabokov's mind before he married Vera, I do not know. Probably, quite a few frivolous things, to expect from a very handsome, young Russian.”

Maurice Couturier revealed in Nabokov's Eros and the Poetics of Desire that different versions of last six lines of  “Lilith” were used "...throughout Nabokov's novels which may suggest that he, as an author, was probably reenacting an event belonging to his own past or a fantasy he had nursed."

Brian Boyd shared in Vladimir Nabokov,The American Years that when Nabokov taught at Stanford his evenings were often spent attending formal parties and playing chess with Henry Lanz, the head of the Slavic department. Nabokov found Lanz "...delicate, cultured and talented." In addition, Nabokov found that Lanz was a nympholept (i.e., a person seized with a frenzy of erotic emotion) who would " off on the weekends, neat and dapper in his blazer, to orgiastic parties with nymphets." Now the question is, did Nabokov ever attend any of those parties with Lanz? 

And who was one of Nabokov's favorite painters? Based on my leading question, you may have been able to guess none other than Balthus. Nabokov shared in In Strong Opinions, "The aspects of Picasso that I emphatically dislike are the sloppy products of his old age. I also loathe old Matisse. A contemporary artist I do admire very much, though not only because he paints Lolita-like creatures, is Balthus." Furthermore, Eric Naiman wrote in Nabokov, Perversely that a painting in Pnin, "Hoecker's 'Girl with a Cat'", may have been a reference to Balthus' "Jeune Fille au Chat".

Balthus' "Jeune Fille au Chat"

Moreover, what painting did the New York Times Book Review choose to grace Elizabeth Janeway's August 17, 1958 review of Lolita? It was none other than Balthus’ Les Beaux Jours [Golden Days, 1944-49]. 

Balthus’ Les Beaux Jours, 1944-49 and
NYT Book Review
of Lolita "The Tragedy of Man Driven by Desire"

Nabokov was asked in a 1964 Playboy interview, "Are there any contemporary authors you do enjoy reading?" Nabokov replied, "I do have a few favorites—for example, Robbe-Grillet and Borges. How freely and gratefully one breathes in their marvelous labyrinths! I love their lucidity of thought, the purity and poetry, the mirage in the mirror."

Unsurprisingly, Robbe-Grillet writes about nymphets too. Here's an exemplary excerpt from his Recollections of the Golden Triangle [French: Souvenirs du Triangle d'Or]:

To celebrate her 17th birthday, Caroline's father took a whole box at the Opera House. Caroline was commanded to face the stage while straddling two armless red-velvet chairs before her father "...pressed himself shamelessly against her buttocks in order to caress her in greater comfort...The insidious fingers are no longer satisfied with stroking...They pass back and forth in wave after wave, tirelessly, over the bivalvular lips...One tiny, fragile rock resists and stiffens..."

Joyce Milton shared in her book,Tramp: The Life of Charlie Chaplin, that Chaplin acknowledged, “I had a violent crush on a girl only ten or twelve. I have always been in love with young girls [...]”  Interestingly, Barbara Wyllie wrote in "'My Age of Innocence Girl' - Humbert, Chaplin, Lita and Lo" that Nabokov was influence by Chaplin. For example, there's a reference to Chaplin's toothbrush mustache in Lolita.

And what about Aleksandr Pushkin, who was one Nabokov's favorites poets. The Paris Review revealed that Nabokov spent two months in Cambridge working on the English translation and commentary of Eugene Onegin for over 17 hours per day. In the novel in verse, the poet Lensky invited 26-year-old dandy Eugene Onegin to dinner with his fiancée, the nymphet Olga, and her family. During the dinner Tatyana, Olga's 13-year-old older sister, became very infatuated with Onegin but her innocent love for the older man was (initially) unrequited. 

Wait. Let's not forget about Nabokov's short stories. According to Naiman, Nabokov wrote “Skazka” in 1926 before it was published in Rul', a Berlin emigre newspaper that was founded by his father. In the story, on his ride to work, Erwin habitually gazes through the tram's window and picks girls for his imaginary harem. However, the young man gains the opportunity for his dreams to come true after he meets Frau Monde, a female Devil who promises Erwin that he can have all the girls he wants upon “cushions and rugs” in “a villa with a walled garden” but that it's “essential and final” that he selects an odd number of girls between noon to midnight. 

The next day Erwin starts collecting slave girls. Here's a partial list:

A maiden in a white dress with chestnut hair and palish lips who was playing with her “fat shaggy pup”

“[T]wo young ladies-sisters, or even twins...Both were small and slim...with saucy eyes and painted lips.” Erwin referred to the Twins as “Gay, painted, young things.”

A lady who “...was lovely, hatless, bobhaired, with a fringe on her forehead that made her look like a boy actor in the part of a damsel.

A “beautiful in a drab, freckled way” wench who worked at a cheap restaurant that Erwin frequented on Sundays. 

A girl with gray eyes with a slight slant and a thin aquiline nose that wrinkled when she laughed

A girl at a small amusement park who wore a scarlet blouse with a bright-green skirt

Four girls in jerseys and shorts, “...magnificent legs, naked nearly up to the groin...” inside the amusement park's arcade. 

“A child of fourteen or so in a low-cut black party dress .” She was walking with a tall elderly man who was a “...famous poet, a senile swan, living all alone in a distant suburb”

I won't reveal who last girl was, but I will share her response to Erwin which was, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself...Leave me alone.” Her response was due to “...that which changes a man's life (i.e., genital) with one divine stroke...”

When Nabokov translated the story before it was published in Playboy (1974) and Details of a Sunset (1976), he aggressively titled it “A Nursery Tale” and noted in Tyrants Destroyed and Other Stories that when he was translating the story he was “...eerily startled to meet a somewhat decrepit but unmistakable Humbert escorting his nymphet in the story I wrote almost half a century ago.”

Boyd wrote in Vladimir Nabokov, The American Years that “Even some otherwise sophisticated readers supposed that he could render Humbert so vividly only because he must have had a penchant for little girls himself.” And that “Appel observed that [at seventy-five-years-old] Nabokov was definitely a viellard encore vert, not a senior citizen, and still had a keen eye for young beauty.” 

Martin Amis, who prefers the word nympholepsy to ephebophilia, wrote in a Guardian article The Problem with Nabokov that “One commonsensical caveat persists, for all our literary-critical impartiality: writers like to write about the things they like to think about.” 

Although, Andrew Field wrote in Nabokov, His Life in Art that Nabokov admitted that “perhaps” one tenth of his stories were autobiographical, that tease doesn't provide us with much help since there doesn't appear to be a way to verify which tenth is autobiographical. 

However, Alden Whitman shared in his New York Times Book Review piece announcing Nabokov’s death that Nabokov obliged, "My knowledge of nymphets is purely scholarly."
Thus, was Nabokov a hebephile\ephebophile or nympholeptic? Clearly, he was, and according to Matt Ridley's New York Time's Notable Book, The Red Queen, all men are. Consequently, maybe the question should be, was Nabokov an acting hebephile? And did he ever have an age-discrepant relationship? The answer is, we may never know.
