PDAs — Do or Don't

PDAs — Do or Don't

Here's a poll from OnSugar blog Rantings of a Single Girl.

I've never been one for PDAs. There is just something about seeing a couple making out in public that makes my stomach turn. Literally.

I'm not adverse to all kinds of affection in public. Hand holding is fine. It is kind of sweet actually. A quick peck on the cheek or lips? Nothing wrong with that. An arm around your sweetie at the movies or a concert? I'm fine with that.

I've just never understood why the world needs to see a couple French kissing or grinding on each other in public. That has always struck me as something personal. Something that should be reserved for behind closed doors.

So I guess you could say I'm adverse to extreme PDAs. And I seem to see more and more PDAs these days. I guess as sexuality becomes more open and out-there these days, I should expect to see more PDAs. I'm afraid making out in public is becoming more and more socially acceptable . . . and I'm not sure I like it.

How do you feel about extreme PDAs? A do or don't?

DON'T!! I was on a full airport tram in Vegas and there was a young couple french kissing and making smacking noises right next to me. F-CK YUCK! I wanted to bash their heads together.

I don't mind hand holding, arms around each other, or the quick goodbye peck. I love seeing elderly couples who still hold hands when they walk - I hope my hubby and I are still doing that when we're that age. Full on making out, wet-sloppy kisses with tongues down the throat, groping, pressing groins into each other is nasty when done in public. Please do not live out porn fantasies where all can see and be grossed out! That's just trashy.

Quick kisses and hand holding/hugging are fine anytime. It's one thing if you're making-out at a bar or a club.. I'm not saying it's OKAY but I've done it before and I'm sure I'll do it again. At a store or restaurant, though, that's too trashy. A major theme park near me has an unofficial 'gay day,' and I unknowingly went one year. There were men making out with men and women making out with women and I overheard a few of them making comments like, "They only have a problem with it because we're gay." I just wanted to say, "The problem is you're drooling all over each other in front of little kids and their families!" Not okay, no matter who you are.

Light peck, a hug, holding hands? That's all cute and seeing it makes me feel happy inside. Sitting across from two people going at it on the bus? Not so much and seeing it makes me want to vomit.

I am a bartender and I still cringe when I see people making out at my bar. Out in public during the day (unintoxicated).... yuk.

Depends on the level of affection. Hand holding? Cute. Making out and groping each other? Barf

I'm a very affectionate person, so I don't mind having a bit of a snog in public, though I wouldn't do it on the bus or in the middle of the pub. I'd at LEAST go around the corner because I know a lot of people don't want to see it.Grinding in public? No way in hell. That sort of thing happens in the bedroom and that is where it stays.

I don't even like hand holding, lol, but it's hardly fair to ask people to stop doing that.

I agree, some things should be done behind close doors. Hand holding, little pecks, and hugging is fine,French- kissing-on the other hand- is not appropriate.

I dont mind a little pda when im out in a club and theres other ppl doing the same thing with my bf. But any stranger or a guy i just met, maybe not. In a serious relationship, its ok but to a certain level.

Oh, yes, by all means, DO. It gives me something to stare and lech at when I'm bored. Oh, and if you're both REALLY unattractive, you can catch me making 'ew' faces and pointing :-)

Sure it's romantic - if you're in a relationship or have someone. Sorry, I don't want to see people making out and being all lovey dovey while I'm going through a breakup or just after having my heart broken, etc etc. And I'm sure other people can agree that seeing two people passionately making out after you just got dumped or broke up with someone is the last thing you want to see. And even when I was in a relationship, we kept it to hand holding unless we thought we were alone in a public place (like in a department store we might kiss if we didn't think anyone was around to notice)...
