Serious Question: Is Sex In A Public Place (A Dark One) Too Taboo For You, Or Would You Say, “Never Say Never”?
So there I was, minding my business, grabbing my things and putting my jacket on in the darkness of a movie theater after spending more than two hours watching the Rock’s fine behind in Pain and Gain.
As my friend and I proceeded to exit the theater, I realized that we were a few of the last people to leave. Hey, you never know what extra scenes you’ll see or information you’ll get during the credits. Walking out, I noticed two more people, a young man and woman, still in the theater seats, way up, chilling. And then before I knew it, before they went out of my eye view, the young lady went ahead and straddled her male companion and they started making out ferociously. That was it. They were about to get it in.
My friend started laughing on our way out the door while I was completely in shock. I think we’ve all as young people gotten a little frisky with a boyfriend at least once while watching a movie (in college for me though; If me or my man is spending $13 for a movie now, we’re for damn sure going to pay attention to the whole thing). But as dirty as movie theater seats are, I wouldn’t be trying to expose my goodies in any of the four corners of such a place.
“That’s sooooo gross, man!” I said to my friend as we went down the many escalators on our way out, but she didn’t really have a response. She just smirked and then filled me in, happily reminiscing about the time she got caught with her boyfriend having sex in a public place–by the cops. There was no arrest made luckily, and she just counted it as an experience, a seemingly unforgettable one. I plan to go on a vacation with my boyfriend this summer, and knowing this, after telling her, “I just couldn’t do all that,” she said, “When you go on vacation, please, have fun.”
AKA, have sex on the beach, in a park, at the movies, in a car, on a balcony, or anywhere that might get my heart pounding for more than the obvious. Oh hell no is all I could think at that moment.
And after telling a few more folks about the frisky moviegoers, it seems that my friends were equally bold in their places of sexual activity, and in the end, I was pretty much one of the few people I knew who cringed at the idea of doing it in such a risque way, where any ‘ol body could find me in a compromising “position.”
I’m not trying to sound like Brice from Temptation, claiming that every time you engage in sex with your partner, it has to be in the sanctity of your bedroom, but I barely like engaging in a whole bunch of PDA. Therefore, for me, it’s always been something very taboo. But the more I thought about it after my conversations yesterday and today, I thought to myself, “Hmph, that actually sounds like it could be…interesting.” I’m not saying that the next time I have sex I’ll be dropping it low somewhere in a Starbucks corner, but I’ve learned that it’s best to never say never (thanks Brandy!). Except in the case of bringing third parties in, because that’s just a terrible idea (and gross). Being close-minded, especially when it comes to the ins and outs of a relationship and what you are willing to try with your partner is a good way to end up with conflict, but I would say that I’m not about to do something I’m uncomfortable with. Thankfully, my partner hasn’t asked for anything like this, so for now, I can continue to say that I’m not really down with the idea. But let’s just say that in the heat of the moment, we’ll have to wait and see what happens in the future…
And yes, Pain and Gain was very entertaining…if you were wondering.
So what are your thoughts on the idea of having sex in public? Is it just too taboo?
Ladies, at one point or another, we’ve all had that “back up guy” on deck in case we needed a quick date or some male company. You know the type: he’s more than a friend but nowhere near anyone we claim as our man. But have you ever wondered if you were someone else’s back up chick? In matters of the heart, lines can get blurred and many things can get lost in translation when you’re ignoring signs or being deceived, so here are some ways to tell if the guy you’re into is into you back, or if you’re simply his back up chick.
I’m not the Grinch who stole Valentine’s Day. I respect a couple with a healthy dose of self-confidence in their relationship that allows them to show affection in public. That being said, when a couple crosses the line, then the rest of the world feels either completely left out, or like they are intruding. When all they were trying to do was buy milk. Love birds, this PDA needs to stop.
Have you ever gone to a restaurant with your guy and ordered a milkshake with two straws? Yes? Well, that’s adorable. A milkshake is a nice item to share. Sure, it’s cliché, but at least there’s no mess.
But what about other foods? Is it romantic to share an entrée and to feed each other your dinner? After reading this article on The Gloss, I’ve decided that I think it’s gross when couples feed each other in public. And there are certain foods that, if I saw a couple feeding them to each other, would make me absolutely nauseous. Such as:
1. Spaghetti. Eating spaghetti by myself is a chore. I always end up with sauce all over my face and noodles falling out of my mouth (please tell me I’m not the only one). I can’t even imagine what it would be like to have a set of hands that aren’t mine feeding me this messy dish. It would most likely end in the restaurant being cleared out because our fellow diners are disgusted. The Lady And The Tramp thing is just a fantasy!

Has a love interest ever made a move on you that left you thinking “Aw hell, I know he didn’t just do that!” or maybe “Aw, that was cute. Corny, but cute.” There’s a fine line between what is considered romantic and what is considered corny. What a person deems as romantic or cheesy is their prerogative and unique to their own individual perspective; however, for humor’s sake, check out some of these gestures that are meant to be romantic but don’t always come off that way.
Love is a trans-formative force. A lot of men think that doesn’t apply to them, but then, they find themselves doing “different” things when they fall in love.
Here are some changes men most likely make when they find “the one” ….
Are you wondering if a guy is serious about you? There are some things guys make a conscious effort to not do for women they’re not serious about. So, if you catch your guy doing these, you can be sure he knew exactly what he was doing. And he is hoping to be in it for the long haul.
Our biggest worry when introducing our boyfriend to our friends is having him impress them. But, there are some things we do that make that hard for the poor guy. Here are a few things to avoid when showing off our new boo…
Madonna and Britney really started some mess. Surely, by now, you’ve noticed that in the past few years award shows, performances and just regular celebrity appearances have been plagued with tacky, sloppy kisses. Some of them are spontaneous while others are staged. But just because they’ve been orchestrated, doesn’t mean that they’re easy to stomach. They’re quite gross, actually. Check out the most heinous offenses and let us know if you loathe these celeb kiss as much as we do.
Fantasia and Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx and Fantasia performing together sounds like a treat…in theory. Both can sing and always put on a good show; yet they took it way too far with this slimy kiss they shared at the 2006 BET awards. I could have gone with it as a part of the performance had it not been for that string of spit that hung in the air after their lips had parted. Watching the video will make you cover your mouth in mild repulsion.
We’re happy for you. Really we are. We don’t mind when you kiss each other at the dinner table across from us. We do enjoy hearing your stories of cute things he did for you. But, there is a difference between sharing stories in confidence, and in person, with a friend or two, and publishing it for your 5th grade teacher, that guy you met once in Cancun last year, and every one else on Facebook to see. They just don’t need to see things like this:
