A visible symbol of something you have done wrong and regretted, or a stigma of a past mistake you made that follows you.
The Puritans required adulterers to wear a scarlet letter, the letter "A" (with a scarlet red color) on a necklace as a penance for their wrongdoing.

Jailbait. A hot underage girl.
Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet.

stigma related to the infamous incidents
For example, if you were caught to have a sex deal with a prostitute in China, your passport may be stamped with a seal of "lewd worm". This infamous seal is the "scarlet letter"

When a male is having sex doggy style with his significant other. She is menstruating (heavy flow) and he pulls out before he is about to ejaculate. He ejaculates on her butt. Then takes the tip of his bloody penis and writes the first letter of his first name on her right butt cheek.
I would like to take you out to a seafood dinner, perform a scarlet letter, and not call u the next day.

After fucking a girl who's on her period, as you cum, you titty fuck her. Extra props for being able to form the letter A.
My girl was on the rag, but I fucked her anyways, and then I finished it with a Scarlet Letter.
