Yes, unless you're in a super conservative setting. Maybe not like making out/sexual kissing, but I think that if you want to give your boyfriend a peck on the cheek at Sears no one should judge you for that.

If you're in court/at work/a funeral etc. it may be best not to, so I do accept that there are some circumstances to withhold PDA.

Yes.
Because. I don't know
Yes. Not in a funeral. Not in a church. Not kissing so hard you look like you're devouring each other.

1. Yes
2. It's fine to show some PDA...just not too much. If you're making out, get a room.
3. See above.

I think it is... body touching is different!

Yes, but save the full blown-out making out for your private time. I think it's trashy to be in a store and do that.

It annoys me, but I'm very anti-affectionate.

I think making out in public is gross. I'm guessing you posted this are what we saw at the grocery store today lol

Yes it is fine, unless you are going all out. That is gross. When you care for someone, you affection shouldnt be paused just because you are in public. Your surroundings and location play a lot into that though.

I think a quick peck is fine in most settings.

Yes I think it's fine as long as you don't look like you're ab out to rip your clothes off.

As long as its done in a tasteful manner. I've seen some that will just make out in the middle of a public place. Its bad enough the kids have to watch me smooch my hubby lmao. I get the "ewwwwww" face and noises from them ha! I think too that it depends on where you're at. If its somewhere like a church or religious place, maybe a school or something like that? Then I would say the kisses could probably hold off unless its a kiss on the cheek hello or goodbye

I don't care if it's appropriate or not, I'm not going to let society dictate when I show my husband affection. We kiss in public all the time, not like make out (though we have come close a few times), but a quick peck or a slightly lingering kiss. We were at an event one year and I leaned over to kiss him while he was on sitting on the curb and I was standing. A month later we get a publication from the organization, it had a picture of me doing that. And the caption read "A good luck kiss".

Depends on the kiss. If it's just a peak sure that is fine, but making out is different. Have some respect for those around you and save it for the car, your house, and your bedroom. We don't need to see your foreplay. Unless you are in an all adult setting like a swinger place, strip club, or something along those lines it's not appropriate to go at it dry humping style.

I would say yes, as long as it's not full-on making out or in a very formal setting. I'm pretty reserved about PDAs, but a peck or two is fine. I tend to only do it as a greeting/goodbye thing, though.

Aw, that's sweet about the publication!

I'm more conservative in public, so there's little more than hand-holding and maybe a quick kiss when the moment feels right (once or twice an outing). I feel rather uncomfortable when teenagers start making out - I know they do it for shock value (and lack of consideration due to hormones), but it makes me have less respect for them.

I love seeing kissing in public or kissing my guy in a public place.

As long as it isn't a face eating competition...

Yeah, I don't mind. Hands above the waist, though.

I won't get into specifics, but I would say general pecks and such are just fine in public. But full on making out, tickling of the tonsils etc is something for more of a private setting.

It's situation dependent.

Making out, with groping, is not appropriate most places. A tongue war isn't the best idea in public, but it depends. A festival is a different atmosphere than a shopping mall.

I disagree that kissing isn't always appropriate at funerals. It depends on the kiss. Some people of many cultures kiss to greet each other. It can also be an action of comfort and solidarity. It depends on your culture, your relationship, and the intent behind it. If my SO kissed me at a funeral, it would not be a sexual kiss, it would be a sign of comfort and affection, and I really don't think anyone would find it inappropriate, because it would obviously not be sexual in intent.

It's about being respectful to those around you.

Depends, if it's casual and there isn't tongue going down each other throats then it's no problem to me. It can be sweet when it's a quick peck.

I think a loving kiss is fine in public, ANYWHERE...however, making out is not okay

yes it's sooo cute to see a couple kissing or showing affections. but when it gets to sloppy thats when it's a no no
05/10/2012
Ciao. Ciao.
Yes, most of the time. There are definitely kisses that can verge on (or go well into) inappropriate territory in public, but most kissing in public doesn't bother me at all. It's all about knowing the situation.

I thought so, too. I used to be really conservative about it because of our age difference and I thought people would think it was really just a little too weird for them, but I finally said to hell with it so it was nice to be validated that way.

Kissing is fine, if you're making out, groping, etc. then get in a car and find a secluded area and have at it.

As Ryuson pointed out, there are places when it would be inappropriate.

This is pretty much my opinion on it as well.

Yes, I kiss my partner in public all the time, we save the heavy make-out sessions for home but we like to show affection to one another when we are out in public too.
