Pointers to stories (mostly online) where characters, through time-travel, get a chance to "do over" their lives. Often contain erotic wish-fulfillment. Often spawned by phrases like "if I only knew then what I know now" or "if I only had a chance to do it over again."

Body Switch Stories

These stories involve a body switch, often an old or mature person inhabiting a young body.
There is no travel back in time, so the "arriving" consciousness doesn't have foreknowledge;
however, it typically has more experience, skills, etc. making the host an apparent prodigy in some respects.
There is a partial do-over effect, since the arriving person has a chance to live again as a child or young(ish) adult.
