Mensagem:  Sounds like 'hard-on' is the closest translation for that context.

One can say  "I have a hard-on for her" , etc.

By the way, your written English is very good, so I'll offer you this small criticism:

"But my doubt is" does not sound quite right. Doubt is usually used as a verb, e.g. "I doubt that to be the case". As a noun it is usually plural  or indefinite, such as "my doubts are many and confusing". When one's concern is singular and specific, as in your second message in this thread, then you could say  "my issue is with" or "my question is", etc.
