    Oh my gosh yes. When I was about 12 I got this “Bible for teen girls” with commentary that was supposed to be relevant to my life, and I read Song of Solomon because previous commentary had referenced it as this beautiful, ideal love story for Christians, and I read it and was like “….. but …… I don’t want anyone to talk about my body that way…… or think about it that way…….. ???” and I got really upset because the inserted columns were directly saying that this was what God wanted in marriage and talking about the rewards of being pure and I was thinking it sounded not like a reward but like an obligation and a punishment, and if this was the only way to be loved then I would never be able to love anyone.
