But Final Fantasy X represents one of those foundational adolescent moments for me in which sex transitioned from something I knew about and was aware of into something I desired. Final Fantasy X was released 20 years ago when I was 14 years old. It was the first Final Fantasy game on the PlayStation 2, and by that point, I had become an avid Final Fantasy fan so, naturally, I added this newest entry to my collection. So to my inexperienced eyes, FFX was a return to what I was more familiar with than the high-fantasy of FFIX —which was itself a return to the high-fantasy form of the first six games.
I loved the combat and how it allowed me to make use of my entire party at any time. Its story was interesting, and I connected with its motley crew of characters far better than the ensembles of FFIXwho I thought were all childish, and FFVII who were, to a man, completely unrelatable. Tidus was warm and funny, unlike Squall or Cloud, and Yuna was a princess-type character who relied on people to protect her but had her own strength that prevented her from being a damsel in distress.
I shipped them immediately.
At 14, I was still two years away from when I would start my sexual awakening in earnest through Yu Yu Hakusho slash fic. It was more like, desire never affected me. I had crushes on fictional boys shout out to Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moonthe OG but my thoughts of them were confined to chaste fantasies of marriage and children. The scene in the Macalania Forest is utterly beautiful. The two then kiss and fall into an underwater embrace. It is probably the most romantic moment in a Final Fantasy game ever, and it is definitely the sexiest.
Even I, at my naive age, understood their two bodies swirling around each other, fully clothed, but tenderly touching fingertips was a metaphor for sex.
Until that point, I understood sex as something people did when they were attracted to each other the same way people ate when they were hungry. It was the satisfaction of a physical, not emotional, need. But Final Fantasy finally linked sex to an emotion I could understand—love.
I saw those two attractive people and saw the tenderness, affection, and love they had for each other manifest as a physical act. And, ho boy, my attention starvedyear-old Black ass going to a predominantly white school would have killed Sin several times over for some tenderness, affection, and love. I still own my original copy of FFX as well as several others, including the PS4 version of the game that was released in In my memories, I can recall tender moments between Rinoa and Squall and Garnet and Zidane but very little kissing.
And no couple in Final Fantasy history ever had a kiss so lovingly rendered with the stunning processing power of the PS2. It still holds up. Thank you for writing about your experiences with the game! The A. Odds and Ends.
