Finally! Spring has decided to show up around here in NYC. Sunny days. Warmer weather. Drier air. People making out. Yup, Spring also seems to bring out the lovebirds sucking face and playing tonsil hockey in all their spit swapping glory! Hey, I’m all for showing love and caring for the love of your life but sometimes the public displays of affection are a bit much. Spring is also PDA season around here. Kissing, cuddling, touching, licking, nuzzling, groping, and wrapping of limbs around each other, among other things being done to select body parts and orifices. All in public view to the dismay of many passerby.
Just why do couples seem to ignore everyone else around and give in to their lustful desires while we are all watching? Sometimes it is just comical, and at others it’s kind of vomit inducing. Do we really want to see two young people entwined and basically dry humping each other out on the streets? Even worse is when you see two people your parent’s age going at it and slobbering all over each other. Ewwwww! I don’t really even want to see anyone my age going at it either. Get a room you two! There is a time and place for everything. A little smooch here and there, some affection, and the such is always cool, but all out grinding and deep kissing like they are trying to dig out the food particles stuck in their back teeth from breakfast is just plain nasty.
Also, what the heck is that moaning noise? Do you have to make these sounds like you’re in the middle of watching a porn flick on full volume? The swapping of saliva noises is like listening to fish flapping around out of water. Hearing this on the subway or on the park bench across from you when you’re trying to eat lunch makes your appetite totally disappear. Sure, there are those voyeurs and select creepers out there that get off on observing people going at it in public. Yet, the rest of us really don’t want to see it. Some couples I have observed are pretty much cringe inducing anyway.
Also, what is up with those that have to feed each other? The guy sitting on his girlfriend’s lap? The couple making googly eyes at each other on line at the supermarket? The two that need to suck face while out eating dinner? Damn, there’s a time and place for everything. Back in the day we used to have our hidden spots to park the car at for some “intimate time”, or save it for the darkness of the movie theater among other places we all knew. Nowadays some people just have no cares about where they get a bit down and dirty.
OK, we all get it. You can’t keep your hands off each other. Get a room people!
