I am 17 and been fighting with pocd for a year. I am finally coming to an end with it, but there are still moments of anxiety.
For example, I was on a bus today and there was a young girl, 13 or 14 in very tight clothes, showed quite a lot of skin, especially legs (which is my usual turn on), she didn't have much boobs obviously but just enough for it to show ( surprise surprise, I prefer girl with petite boobs). I was quite aroused, no doubt, until she turned around and i saw she had quite a childish face, quite a turnoff but also a trigger. I am now concerned and feeling bad beacuse I felt that way about her but she was so young. Probably overreacting a bit but still, she is practically a kid, and I had that mixture of arousal and guilt that makes it stronger.

I deal with this on a daily. Luckily I am a homebody and don't have to encounter it often. but the thoughts come in every day. Are you on any meds?

You are having sensations that a normal 17 year old should have, you need to learn that your arousals is not a definition of who you are, your behaviour is who you are, best to accept it, and move on.

Yes, puberty plays all sorts of evolutionary tricks on us.
