Do You Kiss in Front of Family or Friends?

I have always been a little shy to kiss someone in front of my family or friends. I'm not even talking about making out. Just a little peck. Some people I know will have a full on make out session in front of their friends with their husband/wife. When I see this I get a little uncomfortable. I don't know why. What about you? Do you kiss in front of your family or friends?

Hi. I should say I can kiss my boyfriend infront of his family and our friends. Its just a light brush on each others lips, not the torrid way since like you im a little shy too. I like to hold and hug him everytime i can just a way of expressing how much i love him. But i think i cant kiss him infront of my parents because they are very conservative. They might be outrage if i will do it, especially my father. They might be comfortable with this showing of affection if we are married already. Same as you, im not comfortable talking about making love or details of intimate moments. I prefer to keep it private though of course if my friends talk about those stuffs I listen.

It's always easier to talk about those things with your friends.

I always kiss my husbnd in front of people. Usually just a quick peck. As long as people don't make out it is totally acceptable I think.

We often kiss any time and anywhere inside the house but we rarely do in front of other people (just once tho, when he brought me to work; just a goodbye kiss). Maybe sometimes when it's needed but it would only be a smack and could be a greeting or goodbye kiss.

i would have no problem kissing my partner [if i had one] in front of my family or friends. i think making out should be done in private.

My fiance and I have no problem kissing in front of others...but crossing the line to making out is a big no-no in my book. But we are very much in love and if we feel like we want a kiss every so often, we kiss. We also don't hide it around our children. We're affectionate, respectful of each other (and of the people around us) and love each others company. I don't think that, if you're comfortable, it is something that you should hide. :-)

You're right. Some people are just more shy about it.

I couldn't have a full out make-out session in front of my family, but I would give him a small peck or so. I don't mind seeing my friends and their spouse give each other a kiss it just kind of shows me that they are comfortable enough to express their love in front of me.

I do sometimes but a times feel a little bit uncomfy. I dont fully make out, just a peck. But just being out in public with no friends or family around I will kiss with no problems. I know its weird lol.

I know what you mean. It's easier for me to kiss my husband if no one is around that I know too.

A light kiss is okay. I don't feel comfortable when I see other people do it but neither do I have objections.

I use to never, until I got with the person I am with now. He thought it was strange that I didn't. Like you I was too shy to. The first person he tried kissing me in front of was his mom and I was so shocked that I backed up! In my family you would never show any kind of affection in front of family! I am use to it now with his family so it don't bother me. My family on the other hand I am not so sure. They live in another state and I never see them so I don't know what my reaction would be if he tried. I don't think he would though because he knows how my family is now.
