The Perks of Being a Wallflower
How we cite our quotes:
I told Sam that I dreamt that she and I were naked on the sofa, and I started crying because I felt bad. (1.8.5)
Relationship advice: don't tell someone you just met that you had a sex dream about her. You might cry, too. Because you've been slapped. With a restraining order.
My aunt Helen was molested. I hate that word. (2.13.8)
Charlie gets exposed to pretty much all the negative sides of sex. Aunt Helen's molestation in particular leads to a very traumatic situation for Charlie.
The erection made me feel guilty in hindsight though, but I guess it couldn't be helped. (3.5.26)
Charlie is having a completely normal physiological reaction to getting a compliment from someone who is attracted to him. But his past experience turns something that should be a little pleasurable into a source of guilt.
