This Conversation Will Help You…

 

  1. Say what they think public displays of affection are
  2. Say what amount of affection they are comfortable seeing, and what amount they are comfortable showing

Having the Conversation

 

Start here:

What are public displays of affection?

Who do you usually see showing affection publicly?

How do you think people react when they see a gay couple showing affection publically?

Is it okay for people to show public displays of affection in general?

 

Continue:

 Does seeing PDA ever make you feel uncomfortable?

What about it makes you uncomfortable?

Does showing affection in public feel all right to you?

Why or why not?

 

Keep Talking:  

Do you think it makes a difference if you are in an opposite-sex couple or same-sex couple? What about if you were in an interracial couple?

Why would these things affect how people react to PDA? Should it matter?
