Puberty, Sexual Awakening, First Love
I have plenty to say about dreams of sexual awakening, but I won't. I'm afraid my own experience doesn't generalize very well. Sexual maturation is usually accelerated in child prodigies, and greatly delayed in anorexics. BOTH applied in my case, so my own sexual development was as fitful and strange as evolution under a rain of comets--or driving with your brakes on.
