‘Nothing whey my eyes no go see for this Lagos’
I was just coming home this evening from an events coverage project at Lekki Phase 1. Tired and worn out, I couldn’t wait for the next bus to drag my tired ass to CMS or Costain, whichever route comes first. I can’t afford to stay at the bus top for long.
In no time, I heard the rickety sound of the Danfo with the hoarse voice of the ‘Conductor’. I managed to listen to the route the bus ‘Condu’ was calling. ‘CMS, Costain, CMS, Ojuelegba’. Oh Thank God for the blessings, I jumped in and managed the last seat of the bus.
No sooner had I managed to adjust myself to comfort than I heard the kind of sloppy sound that comes with trying to clean the inside of a bathroom slippers with hard brush.
I turned to confirm what could be the cause of this sloppy sound and guess what I saw!!!
The love birds were obviously making out at the back Seat of the Danfo Bus……
I didn’t know when the sound escaped from my mouth….’
‘My God Warrizdiz’!
Before I knew it, everyone in the bus jolted up and stared in my direction, and noticed what was really happening. LOL! The two lovebirds stopped abruptly as soon as they heard my scream.
Utterly sorry and sober, I apologized and mouthed
‘I’m sorry, please continue!’
BIKO, who wan continue?
Often times than not, I have witnessed numerous types of PDA within Lagos environs. From Oshodi to Ikoyi.
Lagosians are not really shy in displaying the doctrines of love in their relationships. The various show of affections I have seen have made me decide on the three unmissable types of PDA I want for myself as I gracefully move towards a marriageable age.
When I’m lucky enough to witness these actions, It’s either I find a corner to hide and watch in admiration or I just do a ‘waka pass’ if I find the situation absurd and disgusting. No vex for me mbok! I’m just being realistic.
Some people would be wondering already what I mean by PDA. No worries, I know some of us are not as ‘ghenghen’ as some of us. Some babes will even say, ‘See you, you are not even exposed’
PDA is known as Public Display of Affection, which was defined by the Urban Dictionary to be the act and form of kissing, touching, groping, licking, nuzzling, cuddling, crossing hands etc. Usually spotted among new couples, frisky teenagers, and occasionally the “young at heart”
In Deedee’s books though, PDA can simply be said to be the display of reasonable physical reaction publicly which will make your partner to feel loved and have a sense of belonging. This goes beyond just kissing, groping and touching ‘bums’ or what have you.
While there have been a lot of arguments by top relationship blogs on whether PDA is right or not, I am unconcerned because most times, I always seem to enjoy watching people engage in such. This post is not about whether couples should engage in PDA or not.
Funny enough, in my hay days as a relationship and romance baddo, I shrink at the thought of engaging in PDA with my boo and vice versa. You never know whether any of your side chicks are lurking around the corner, stalking you. Hehe!
I am so very ready for some loving right now and I believe that the positives that can be drawn from PDA (if done reasonable) far outweighs the negatives. I understand it has been sabotaged right now and a lot of naive and unreasonable couples now engage in that to probably create a virtual illusion that they are crazy about their boos, when in actual fact the reverse is the case.
Guys, una well done oh!
Bisi, Kike, Tade, Cynthia, Dora, Chanelle, Oyinda, Alice wherever and whoever you are. I am going to love you soon and biko, get ready for some PDA. I no wan hear say you be introvert..mbok! we go undo the cloth of introversion before we commot house.
Type 1: I like the holding hands type of PDA
I believe there is an emotional connection between two love birds when they hold hands in public. I know some of you might be wondering that holding hands do not necessarily connote to being a sign of PDA and it isn’t necessarily PDA, but to me, it is. I could as well hold hands with my sister or brother anyway, but the fact there is a difference when you hold your ‘boo’ hands in public.
Holding hands with my woman allows me to concentrate on her. Holding hands makes me feel wanted and focused on.
You know why I love handing hands? Because it can be anything from just being together, to communicating silently, to even foreplay. Sexy, yea? I like!
Type 2: A quick peck or kiss
I agree that a lot of young people out there may feel immense sense of emotion and attraction that they may want to do ‘crazy’ French kissing in public.
For them, it is cool to do so, for me it is simply not. The fact that I did not French kiss you in ‘kekemaruwa’ ‘BRT’ or in the ‘danfo buses’ does not mean I don’t love or care about you.
I like the fact that when I’m out with you in public places, a quick peck or a subtle kiss will do just fine. We may be at an event, dinner and you may want to lean in for a kiss. Fantastic. I like it for me. It just exemplifies that I am human and have a loving relationship.
Displaying affection in public is one thing, showing the need for a room is another. I may need that deep passionate kiss with boo at that moment, but I would have no choice than to respect those around me.
When something light starts getting too hot and heavy, then it’s time to get a room before somebody screams ‘GET A ROOM’!
Type 3: Licking my earlobes in Public
Ewww….!! That’s gross, you say. But Hey, it’s splufic I think.
Some people don’t understand that there are several rush of emotion that flows from your brain to your body when your earlobes are being licked. Public or private, or during foreplay, I love my ears being licked.
An added effect is when that is being done in public. Oh My!…I love it. You know how I like it? She leans in as if she wants to whisper into my ears and then lick the ear lobes. I go crazy in love.
Asides the fact that I love the feeling I get from that, I also respect and adore Les Boo, if she does that in public. Mind you, something has been done but no one knows. That subtle and sexy. Interesting!
Moderation and classy display of affection are awesome. Some people are not mentally aware of their environment and just do things without second thoughts. I remain true to my objective, I am not here to criticize whichever way you choose to attack PDA, but note that in commencing certain acts in public, be very self-aware and conscious.
In as much as you want to show that you are alive emotionally or want to score some cheap emotional points, remember there could be kids watching and staring.
The world is going crazy now. You may not want your public display of affection change some little children’s mentality about life and loving.
If you are that babe out there and you like the types mentioned above. Then we need to hook up!
Yours in Love
