In other words she doesn't like to spend too much time thinking about how different the man she wants to love is from her and the rest of humanity.

You're probably right, although I think the avoidance is very much subconscious on Tifa's part. Part of her recognizes that the more differences bewteen she and Cloud, the harder it is to form a more intimate relationship. It's hard to find common ground (e.g., through shared experiences) when two people experience events in a significantly different manner.

However, when it comes to OT4, these sorts of physical difference are much less important. First, Zack's involved, enough said. ^_- And second, everyone in OT4 (even Sephiroth) was not only receptive to each other's advances, but also actively trying to become closer. That is very different from Tifa's and Cloud's totally one-sided situation.

Naïve, isn't she? And a bit close-minded here, but I guess she can't be blamed too much for that. She's a small-town girl, and she hasn't had an adventurous lover to bring her out of it.

Tifa ran/runs a bar in the slums, so I doubt that she's that naive about sex, even its kinkier aspects. Just think of the ads for sex clubs and bordellos, etc. Where Tifa has problems is taking that abstract knowledge and applying to her personal life and acquaintances. As I mentioned before, I don't think Tifa's a virgin, but she definitely not sexually experienced. She probably had one or two short flings with lovers who were very much the vanilla, conventional sort -- in other words, bland and safe.

So it's one thing for total strangers to engage in weird erotic stuff, but a very different thing to imagine her Cloud involved in something like that.
