"I like to yell at people when they're doing that, and the chance to yell at people is always a turn-on!"
Human-Resources Administrator, YWCA
"Turn-off -- I hate it! First thing I think: It's a private matter, so why don't they take it home? But, you know, I'm one who thinks there's too many sex scenes in the movies."
"Generally speaking, I would say a turn-off. But it depends. If it's just mildly affectionate, then it can be kind of nice. But if it's overt -- they've decided to go to a hotel room but they just haven't yet -- then it gets a little weird."
"To me, it'd be a terrible turn-off. I think open affection is rather disgusting and totally unnecessary. Don't get me wrong: I'm as affectionate as anyone, but not in public."
"Kissing is romantic; an adoring hug is romantic. But when you're out with your buddies and some guy's grabbing his girlfriend's tits, lifting up her shirt, basically treating her like a whore in front of an entire crowd, you're thinking: How much respect does he have for his woman, and how much respect does she have for herself?"
