P.D.A.= Public Display of Affection. In your opinion what is too much. Just curious.  [ send green star]

I think what ever one is comfortable long as it is not too offensive to others. This could lead to a wide range of various opinions. My own opinion is this, intimacy is a private display, with trust and sharing involved...sometimes couples...and not all of the couples I have known, display public affection because of their own insecurities and need to show ownership or posessiveness.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
ok, here's my opinion July 07, 2004 4:13 PM

I, personally, don't want to see people groping each other. I have no problem with people holding hands, hugging, and kissing. Though I don't want to see people making out (i consider that different than kissing). BUT HERE"S THE THING: when i mean i don't want to see people making out, i'm refering to the couples that like people staring at them; i'm talking about couples who want attention from others. Ever walked by and seen couples going at it with their mouths? it's like they're trying to eat each other! Hungry? Go to to a fast food joint or something, geez. Also, I personally don't like it when people are french kissing in a way that i would NOT calling french kissing at ALL. Instead, I view it like role playing: one person's the owner, while the other plays the dog who's licking the owner's face all over, know what I mean? Obviously, I can just ignore these types of couples, I can just walk by and not give a damn, but sometimes these things are unaviodable, you know? You asked a quetion on this topic, so I answered. All in all, I have to say: as long as they leave me alone and aren't right in front of me (like at a concert or whatever) then I"m fine. Honestly, i think "F-it, do what you want together, just leave me alone (don't bother me)". You may or may not agree, but we all have different beliefs and opinions, so yea.... ~AR  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Steve, You ask a lot of questions, how about answering some of your own? lol Inquiring minds want to know. Personally, I used to be an exhibitionist. People love it.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Loving AFFECTION is ... A-O-K July 13, 2004 11:36 AM

Lewd EXHIBITIONISM tells me the participating individuals NEED therapy! (whether they know it, or agree, is irrelevant!) I love holding hands, hugging, and casual kissing in public. EVERYTHING else is private ... period!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

being newly wed (ok fine 6months) July 15, 2004 10:12 AM

sometimes i kinda break my own rules on that. LOL PDAs that dont bother me, whether a participant or not: 1. holding hands 2. hugging (no not the torrid kind ok....thats out) 3. kissing (nothing torrid UGH...that looks really gross or something) as for those stuff such as perching on my man's lap in public, hanging on to him like a monkey or like kissing for more than 5 seconds....thats really distasteful. for me anyway.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I think sometimes people get caught up in the moment.....they may feel real embarassed by it later .......but the moment they're in doesn't dictate the morals or what have you.........only the urgency.......There are much worse public displays then making out........I smile to myself and carry on.......They didn't ruin my day......  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
About P.D.A. July 25, 2004 8:08 AM

I absolutelly agree with Alena. Hei.. do you guys know that in Indonesia kissing in public is againts the law..! They could charge you with penalty or put you to jail, 5 years max. Well.. if that really solve it.. I believe that there are many things that worth sharing with our couple only. Just the two of us and not the whole world. About P.D.A., if we really publicly display our affection would that make the whole world understand about our real affections? I think it will only discomfort others and eventually makes others think bad of our relationship. Even if we display our affections, it won't make the world knows how we really feel inside.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Right... July 29, 2004 12:18 PM

Holding hands, bumping shoulders, arms around each other's waist, casual stuff like that is nice to do and even nice to notice others doing, but anyone engaging in any kind of overtly sexual act in public is basically forcing other people into participating in sex with them. That whole "well if they don't want to look they don't have to!" is one of the bs excuses people like that try and use rather than admit they are really just gross rapists.

Like it has been said, there is a time and place for everything... I would also state that too much can be as bad as not enuff (am i wishy washy or what?) Truly though, I feel that showing affection for another should be tasteful, and from the heart - doesn't mean it can't be impulsive - but what I consider tasteful may not be seen that way by others-who knows? I guess we should rely on common sense.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I find it quite stimulating to see people smooching, and touching, and groping in public. It shows that loving is more significant than convention, which is a point Im in total agreement with. It makes me wish my partner were here with me, instead of living overseas though.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I'm a very affectionate person. Kissing, holding hands, hugging, all that good stuff. But, being sexually overt is a turn-off to see in my opinion, it also shows very little respect.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
