Do you enjoy watching a twosome doing more than just holding hands at a coffee shop or at a friend’s party?

Public affection can have its hate club, but deep inside, our voyeuristic sides can’t help but get turned on by some good kissing in public!

Public affection and kids

When we are kids, we’re told to do a few things and we’re told not to do a few of them.

The ‘not-to-do’ list includes kissing in public, cuddling, etc. When we grow up, we get into relationships and the love is just great.

But over time, making out starts to get monotonous. And couples start looking for other means to keep the excitement of making out peaked and tweaked to perfection.

Indulging in an activity that is considered taboo always turns people on and this new found activity helps the couple test and explore the boundaries of their privacy.

Is kissing in public a turn on?

Most people say that they hate public affection and can’t stand the ones who indulge in these ‘perverse’ activities. But given an opportunity, no one would mind staring at an intimate sight or a couple kissing in public unless they are being watched back.

Most couples get frisky in clubs rather than in movie halls. It’s probably the booze and the grinding that helps set the mood right for them. And I’ve seem women just leaning against the wall and staring shameless at couples kissing each other. Men stare too, but the only problem here is that the guy who’s necking the girl won’t like it, and he glares at this staring guy until the spectator looks away.

Kissing and the times

To anyone who’s watching a couple kissing in public, obviously it looks good. And if you exclude the fact that it’s morally immoral, everyone would pretty much love to watch it. But because of the ‘whole view of society as we know it’, most people have to suffice with little sneak peeks at the “unsuspecting” kissing couples.

If a couple is kissing each other goodbye because they’re leaving each other forever, it’s a reason good enough for anyone. If they change their mind and run into each other’s arms for a wet kiss, deciding to run away, change their destinies and stay together against all odds, then that too, is a great reason to kiss and make up.

But if they’re kissing and indulging in public affection just because they want to get attention, well, then that doesn’t feel right, does it? This couple’s probably doing it because it’s turning them on. And however much it turns them on, that’s just crude.

Do we like kissing in public?

Of course, we do. We all love a good show when it’s put up. Who doesn’t want some more love in the world? Well, maybe there are a few people who think that it should belong inside the room. But what I don’t understand about the public affection haters is – what is their problem?

I mean some couple wants to get comfortable with each other. They may even be married, so they want to kiss in the park and turn on the bees and the birds. If anyone’s got a problem, then my advice is to look away.

Now, I’m not going to promote kissing in public here, and I think it’s objectionable to go beyond kissing and perhaps a bit of cuddling, but if you’re looking at sliding for a touchdown, whoa! You there, seriously go find a room! When a cute couple is indulging in a bit of a show of affection, most of us tend to look away, but at the same time we usually beam at them and remember the old days when we used to do the same.

So can we kiss in public?

It’s all nice and it’s also a bit of a turn on to watch a couple necking each other in public. You know, get a few pointers and a few tips too. No one can ever say they know all the moves, can they?

So it’s great, the public affection. The show of affection has never hurt anyone, and it never will, unless it’s your lover necking someone else. But then, that’s a completely different story, isn’t it?

We all love a bit of public affection, and no matter what a naysayer says, kissing in public is definitely a turn on! But only as long as the people around you want to see you kiss each other.
