Has anyone had embarrassing crushes on cartoon/movie characters as a child/young teenager?
As a child, I had a massive thing for Jafar from Disney's Aladdin, lol. The Jafar fantasy carried on for quite a while when I was a teenager. My friends take the piss out of me for it, and I don't blame them! I also had a thing for Hades from Hercules. No accounting for taste!
As an older teenager, I developed a vampire obsession, and had a thing for Lestat from 'Queen of the Damned' and Gary Oldman as Dracula... oh dear haha
What are yours?
Anyway I should stop procrastinating on here and get on with my college work...
I have a friend who is an actor and he worked with Diana Rigg; he said she was marvellous and told the filthiest funny stories in her cut-glass voice.
I had a huge crush on Howling Mad Murdock from the A Team. I thought He was the only "normal" one of them lol.
Omg same, he's a snack
Dunno about crushes, but I so wanted to be the Bionic woman or one of Charlie's Angles, if anyone is old enough to remember them. That or Angela Rippon presenting Eurovision.
The crush was reserved for Adam Ant, lol
Ant music! He was a sexy young man. You must be from my vintage if you remember the Bionic Woman and Charlie's Angels.
I remember Charlie's Angels - in the first series, the script always seemed to need them to be in skimpy costumes and bikinis - until they complained that they were serious actors - and from series 2 they were more like a Freeman's Catalogue dummies and the 'action' was tamed right down..
True. But, feminist as I am, at that age I had no notion that the bikinis had anything to do with male gaze. In fact, the notion of 'sexiness' would have been beyond me. If they were in a bikini, that must have been because it was hot or they were going swimming, right? Lol.
They were nevertheless a bit ground breaking as there really weren't too many action women out there.
I would view them a bit differently now.
Adam Ant was a few years later - I'd worked out 'sexy' by then.
I saw Adam Ant in London in about 2011, he was not so sexy by then lol
A friend of mine once drew every guy at our table in the pub as a girl. When she came to me she drew this vampy, hit me baby one more time esk, girl; saying, "you'd constantly live in a push up bra because you'd want the entire world around you to be constantly aware that you have breasts." ... in fairness to her she's probably right.
So I have a slightly different outlook on the male gaze. tbh as a guy I kind wish more girls behaved like the girls in the diet coke adverts. You know the ones who like to stare at shirtless window washers.
As someone who used to love dressing provocatively when I was younger, the attention stops being fun after a while. I've had blokes following me home after nights out, had my drink spiked, etc. It's one thing to look and appreciate, but some people take it too far...
please be careful
Haha I am now
ok ---- u deserve a good man
It's got so bad that you only have to have a social media account to get harassed these days, there is nowhere safe. 'Hi there, wanna chat' soon turns into sexual comments and stalking if you're not careful.
And *** pics, glorious *** pics (lol)! I once had some dude send me loads of photos of his poos, lmao
Frickin 'ell! What a weirdo.
I had a gay friend, well he said he was gay, he sent me photos of his you-know-what in bondage gear, all tied up in leather thongs. Er...?

We've lived a little - we used to edit an alternate lifestyle magazine - you really would not believe what people do behind closed doors.
If you can think of it, someone else already has - and there's a website and an OnlyFans dedicated to it - and probably a convention somewhere. .
Yep. I edit erotic fiction, nothing shocks me now. Well it didn't previously tbh or I wouldn't do this job!
Violence, gore and torture shock me more. It is ironic that people are shocked by sexual things but happy to watch any level of violence. That is the wrong way round IMO.
I agree - I get to see a lot of late-night TV and it's all low-budget horror - blood and guts - just what you need to go to sleep to.
It's the old Victorian morality again - cannot talk about sex - kids get delivered by Storks or something..
It is ridiculous IMO. The wrong way round!
it even happens in online support for distressed/suicidal people ----
thats weird, no never had that
Sorry, what happens? This forum makes it hard to know which comment people are replying to
