I think you have the wrong idea about enlightenment. An arahant is fully enlightened; the enlightenment and wisdom is the same. So the only advantage as bodom noted is that there is less suffering by acquiring enlightenment earlier. The arahant has no pleasure in "remembering girls" -- he/she has gone beyond the pursuit of sense pleasures and has in fact completely eradicated desires of the senses.
