Showing affection to that loved one, or even the one whose pants you just want to get in, has always been a common sight in most western movies and most places around the world. I mean, what’s wrong in showing your affection to someone where you choose? Physical contact, hormones, pheromones, etc are all part of romance, which is important for anyone considering to get married.
But as a recent BBC report states, young couples are being arrested for their display’s of affection. Apparently the old farts in the towns think the behavior is indecent and in that category of ‘indecent behavior’ are cuddling, making out and get this..HOLDING HANDS! I mean WTF how can that be indecent? Tons of couples reaching their silver jubilees still hold hands, and I don’t think the youngsters complain when the men in villages go wife-swapping and the women sex-up the neighbor’s mason-bas.
It is just so absurd being arrested for expressing one’s love, what next? Is the government going to slap chastity belts on and deploy ‘anti-love police’ after everyone till the day they get married?! Or even censor parts of teledrama’s where a couple is holding hands?What about those paintings of naked women on Sigiriya, shouldn’t they be taken off? But I betcha, a foreign couple making out on the mount beach, won’t get the same treatment…pfft.
