Growing up and surviving adolescence is a very confusing time. We are all lost in the haze of emotion that we cannot understand. When our sexual awakenings are happening in the early stages we are slaves to our bodies. So when we come across characters in entertainment that arouse our new stage of life we hold onto them in our minds forever. And they are worth the memory.

Redditor u/ScarecrowFighter2020 wanted to hear about the fantasy people fashioned in a writer's mind that brought us some very "special" kind of joy by asking.... Which fictional character was responsible for your sexual awakening?

Jesus, those two.

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Late 90's X-files was so fun to watch.

cottonwood_windmill

Seeing them being flirty and touchy feely in more recent photos still make me giddy. I only recently threw away that cover of her licking him. Jesus, those two.

Total Drama

Probably Gwen from Total Drama.

Probably also why I (and a lot) like goth girls lol.

Hammy_TV

I used to watch that and play Halo 3. . . is this what it's like to get older?

I_Am_A_Mudcrab

The Gadget. 

I now realize that as a child I had a crush on Gadget Hackwrench on Rescue Rangers (not a furry, but it may be the source of my attraction to handy women).

In terms of sexual feelings that I didn't understand? Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy.

The Lord....

Aragorn, from Lord of the Rings. I'm still into bearded men. God, he's so sexy. I love him.

Moody Girl.

Kim possible, totally spies (cmv that show was fetish show), may from Pokemon ruby and sapphire and those moody but somehow really cute scene girls in series.

The moody scene girls really got me. The age that I am now makes it so it is really hard to find a moody scene girl that is still single.

El for All...

Giphy

Elvira, mistress of the dark, probably.

web-slingin

Look. I'm a straight chick, but I wouldn't kick Elvira out of my bed.

Li Shang from Mulan. For real do you even have to ask us girls it's always gonna be Shang.

Dark Magician Girl.

That's right, growing up before internet I dreamed about being with a Yu Gi Oh card. GenerallySalty

the pink. 

The pink ranger. SlammerEye

This. I remember still being daycare and having the absolute biggest crush on her.

I actually had a plan to become the new green ranger. I would always "train" myself in front of the tv to the theme song, which was just me flailing around. The plan was to "train" long enough till I felt I was fit and ready, pack a bag, go find Zordon, tell him and Alpha that they need a new green ranger and I'm their guy. Then get accepted into the Power Rangers, take my helmet off, plant a kiss on Kimberly while Jason, Billy, Trini, Zack, and Tommy clapped and cheered, Alpha would be doing his stammering/short circuit thing after I announced we were getting married.

I didn't know where Zordon was, I had no idea what I was gonna pack, I just knew I was gonna do it and all I had to look for was that desert mountain. I live the furthest you can get from a desert.

Nobody will ever understand nor feel the hurt and betrayal my 4 year old self felt when I found out they weren't real.

My little heart was shattered and I think that's why the memory stuck so vividly. Eternal-Arcann

kate.

Giphy

Kate Beckinsale playing Selene in Underworld. Damn, that full leather bodysuit. uneekname1

Latex bodysuit and leather corset. Definitely one of the reasons I'm into latex on women. Dyslexick

what she does. 

Katara when she came out in the fire nation fit 🔥. webyaboi

Aang's reaction to that perfectly encapsulated my reaction to it. Wazardus

Or Aangs reaction to the necklace he made for her... or Aangs reaction to her bringing up that they maybe should kiss in the lovers cave episode... or Aangs reaction to absolutely anything Katara does that whole series lmao iced_water_with_lime

misty. 

Misty from pokemon. Reddit

That episode on the beach. You know the one.

Edit: I am so glad I wasn't the only one. I always felt really weird about having the hots for Misty when I was a kid, but I'm glad to know that it was a fairly common thing. jean_nizzle

going rogue. 

Rogue from the 90's X-Men cartoon.

Edit for reference: https://www.reddit.com/r/xmen/comments/6jcltu/didnt_realize_the_cartoon_was_so_wellanimated/ Rokurokubi83

When I was a kid I wanted to be Gambit for two reasons.

Rogue and throwing exploding playing cards. Solid_Freakin_Snake

ivy.

Giphy

Poison Ivy... Oof. wimpyhunter

I literally saw a lewd pic of her in one of my superhero magazines when I was a kid. Loved boobs ever since. ShrekProphet69

meow. 

Catwoman from Batman Returns. To this day reason why I have leather, latex and boots fetish. Also anything tight and shiny, but those 3 in particular. bravo_six

I clearly remember leaving the movie theater with my parents, trying to untangle the knot of feelings Catwoman elicited in me.

And Elvira. And Xena and Gabrielle. And Dana Scully. And Kaylee from Firefly. And a lot of other women, and some guys, in movies and TV. burke_no_sleeps

troi.

Deanna Troi.

Star Trek: TNG came out right after my 9th birthday. Season 2 I was 10, felt the start of those stirrings and there she was every week in that catsuit. GreatJanitor

I'm surprised this is down so far in the list, but looking at the other entries it's probably because we're old. DarthOtter

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
