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.Giphy
Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Late 90's X-files was so fun to watch.
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.
Probably Gwen from Total Drama.
Probably also why I (and a lot) like goth girls lol.
I used to watch that and play Halo 3. . . is this what it's like to get older?
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.
Aragorn, from Lord of the Rings. I'm still into bearded men. God, he's so sexy. I love him.
"Resistance is futile"
Seven of Nine, BigTime!
"Resistance is futile" - Proceeds to slam Ensign Kim into a bulkhead and throat kiss him lord that line in that context, did something lol.
GTA 5 ALL THE TIME
GTA strippers when I was like 9.
He doesn't know I've played a crap ton of GTA since the vice city days and i know it's not "part of the mission" Legit his excuse every time Last time it happened i asked hmmm thats weird why isn't there a yellow line on ur blip map? Oof.
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.
Li Shang from Mulan. For real do you even have to ask us girls it's always gonna be Shang.
Honestly, Wonder Woman from Justice League Unlimited and Ariel from the Little Mermaid. Cheetodude625
Hawkgirl from JLU was everything I could have wanted. God that show was great. Hiatusapocalypse
Dark Magician Girl.
That's right, growing up before internet I dreamed about being with a Yu Gi Oh card. GenerallySalty
The pink ranger. SlammerEye
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 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 from pokemon. Reddit
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
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
Rogue and throwing exploding playing cards. Solid_Freakin_Snake
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
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
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
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
