Ok so I'll admit, I have been accused of PDA. However, all of those times have one thing in common: I was intoxicated. I never humped a guy in broad daylight or inappropriate places such as a movie theatre. I think it can be considered somewhat acceptable if you are at a bar and everyone around you has no idea what is going on. When people are drunk, someone could be having sexual intercourse with an iguana and a.) no one would care or b.) they would think it's awesome. So therefore the only acceptable location for PDA is a bar or party. But under ANY other circumstance, there ought to be some regulations.
Maybe some people get turned on by displaying their affection on a stage for everyone. But if that's your thing, then why not become a porn star? Ok I'm totally kidding but honestly, no one needs to see you swap spit on the line at the ice cream shop. If you really want to show you're in love, why not be traditional and hold hands? You know what, I'll even throw in a peck on the cheek! But anything that prompts people to think "Get these kids a hotel room" means that you probably should. Also, do you really want to get so hot and heavy in public just so the guy ends up with blue balls?
For instance, I was at a pretty civilized concert last night. By civilized I mean that we actually had a assigned seats; no mosh pits. This teenage couple in front of me started to really get on my nerves. Considering that these were seats, we weren't allowed to stand. The girl had the nerve to sit on her beau's LAP and I couldn't see a thing. So i finally said something, but the love fest did not stop there. They proceeded to not just make out, but INTENSELY make out, to the point where the third wheel had to get up and leave in the middle of this amazing concert!
Did they care? Nope. They continued and actually ended up going to second base. Yes, he felt her up in front of everyone. Did I mention they were not a day older than 14?
Hey, if you're in a public area and there's no one in site, then FINE go wild. Have crazy dirty sex on a tree if you want to. But people need to be respectful of others. If you think you and your SO are so unbelievably cute that everyone should see you dry hump on a slide, well you are completely wrong.
And no, I am not a bitter single chick who wishes all couples would burn in hell. I respect love and actually SMILE when I see those happy couples on the street. It's when it goes from G to borderline NC17 that PDA becomes a real Pain in Da Ass.
I think the only exception I can give here is the scene from Never Been Kissed. You know, when Drew Barrymore gets kissed for the first time at age 25 on a baseball field in front of everyone. But CLEARLY that is a different situation. Not to mention it's a movie.
Have any of you seen PDA taken to a whole new level?
