Boy, do I remember being a surgingly sexual creature starting even before I could put those words to it -- like from age 12.

Not only do girls feel desire, but they'll never feel genuinely desirable till they've been completely subjectively desirous. All the fussing about body image and weight bespeaks a certain alienation from oneself, half subject, half object, like Pinocchio stopped in the midst of turning from painted wood to flesh.
