Some may say that the main character of J.D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield, is merely the average teenager, although he seems to think about sex and women quite a lot for his age of sixteen. This point can be easily argued in many ways, one example being the time Holden called a perfect stranger, Faith Cavendish, to get together at an unruly time of night. Another example of the main character's perversion is when he hired a prostitute named Sunny, and never actually accomplished anything. One last example could be Caulfield's overall impression and cockiness...
stranger at an insane time of night hoping that she would come over and have sex with him. Also, Holden's sexually odd behavior can be further verified when he does an outrageously crazy thing for his age and time and hires a prostitute. In addition the main character's obsession with women and sex is evident by his distasteful behavior when it comes to the subject. Over all, what could be argued as normal for a minor is obviously not in the case of sixteen year old Holden Caulfield, the main character in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.
