This might be a weird question, but I'm going to ask it. Do you think it's weird to kiss your parents on the mouth? I was on another board and saw a few people saying it was disgusting and you only kiss people on the mouth if you're interested in them sexually.

For me, I kiss my mom on the mouth sometimes, like when we're saying goodbye. Nothing sexual or gross there. Just a quick peck and hug. I never realized people thought it was disgusting or gross. Thoughts?

I'm oddly okay with my mom more than my dad giving a quick peck but I usually just kiss them on the cheek
distant_lines 16th-Jan-2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I only do it with my mom, not my dad.

Kissing parents on the mouth? No. A hug and kiss on the cheek is just fine.

No, I do the same thing with my mom.

i think past a certain age i grew out of it. i wouldn't say it was DISGUSTING, but i just kiss my mom on the cheek now. i do find it endearing when families love each other enough not to care - i think i mentioned here before my ex used to kiss his dad on the lips when they'd say goodbye sometimes and i thought it was just so cute!! lol idk

it would only be weird or gross if it was open mouth with some tongue action. you are def allowed to peck your mom on the lips, imho.
eaglefan2011 16th-Jan-2013 06:42 pm (UTC)
no

I don't kiss my dad at all. We hug sometimes, but hardly ever. I can't remember with my mom. She died when I was 15.

i don't think my mom ever kissed us kids on the mouth while we were growing up, but my dad would kiss my sister and i on the mouth until we were like 10, and then he stopped. i never saw it as gross.
gee 16th-Jan-2013 06:43 pm (UTC)
I don't think it's weird, I still kiss my mom on the mouth sometimes. I mean I guess I could see why someone would be creeped by it but no prob for me.
tanie_05 16th-Jan-2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
I've never done it on purpose, but I've accidentally done it once or twice. NBD.
hearxmexrawr 16th-Jan-2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
No. I think it's a cultural thing though.
hypnology 16th-Jan-2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure my parents kissed me like that when I was younger, but not so much older. I don't think it's too weird but I personally wouldn't do it.
buncha_cruncha 16th-Jan-2013 06:46 pm (UTC)
For me, it would be weird because it's not something we've ever done. I've seen others do that with their parents though, and it's never bugged me.
algore_galore 16th-Jan-2013 06:46 pm (UTC)
i can't even remember a time either of my parents kissed me on the lips, maybe i lack love in my life? but if other people are down with family kisses then power to them i suppose, i don't really think it's a weird thing
cityxpretty 16th-Jan-2013 06:46 pm (UTC)
I don't think a kiss on the mouth always = sexual, but I don't think I'd like it. I don't think it's weird if other people do though.
soul_amazinn 16th-Jan-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
No. I don't think it's weird.
sastra_fuss 16th-Jan-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
It's not gross but as an adult, I'm not having it. I think it's ok only for little kids, like 6 and under.
sillywalter 16th-Jan-2013 06:48 pm (UTC)
I kiss family on the mouth too. Not gross to me.
theflyers 16th-Jan-2013 06:48 pm (UTC)
It's only sexual if you make it sexual, just like people who freak out about breast feeding, smfh. It's affectionate, that's fine, people will find offense in just about anything you do on some level.
eyduh 16th-Jan-2013 06:50 pm (UTC)
i don't even hug my parents so...

i hate any kind of affection from my parents(from my siblings as well) tbh, i dont know why. its a good thing they feel the same way too
burn_a_miracle 16th-Jan-2013 06:52 pm (UTC)
very rarely to I give my mom a peck on the mouth and I never do with my dad. I did when I was little. And I do with my daughter. I don't think its disgusting at all.
lockupmytears 16th-Jan-2013 06:53 pm (UTC)
It really just depends how you were raised. Like I don't kiss my parents so it would be weird to me, but normal for you.
rolt_me 16th-Jan-2013 06:53 pm (UTC)
no. I don't know anyone of my ethnicity who does. Euro/white thing to me. I don't think it's disgusting really, I've eaten an ice cream cone my brother half finished cause I'm a fatass, which is p much swapping saliva. nbd rly

It's totally dependent on the family. Tbh I kiss my dad, my mom, my sister and my brother on the mouth. *shrug* I did notice a time when my dad stopped kissing me on the mouth, probably thinking I wouldn't be comfortable, but it in fact made me feel a little bad that things had to change/he would think that would bother me. I'm the only child left at home and I kiss my parents goodnight almost daily, so that kinda gives you a picture of how normal it is for us. My sister is probably the least demonstrative of us all and even she kisses my parents and us siblings once if she comes to visit

I mean, it's just a little peck, it's how we show affection. Of course, I have realized in the past five years that my family is surprisingly affectionate with each other. Which is funny because we aren't necessarily that openly affectionate with people outside of our family LOL

(oh and we're brown, if anyone cares about culture and stuff. but we are so totally not like other brown people we know lol)

no. i kiss my mom, dad and sister. oh and my gma as well. meh idk if its cuz im russian but its not a big deal to me.
si_seule 16th-Jan-2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
I've always given my Dad a peck on the lips when we say goodbye or whatever. I never thought it was weird until a couple years ago when a friend was over when my Dad stopped by and she observed it. She made fun of me for the rest of the day. :\

I don't kiss my Mom on the mouth though. We don't have a really huggy affectionate relationship like I do with my Dad. Not that I have a bad relationship with my Mom or anything, we just express ourselves to each other differently.

i've always kissed my parents goodbye/goodnight or whatever. it's just a nice, affectionate gesture. i am nhf people trying to make it sexual.
sadisticsidhe 16th-Jan-2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
I do with my parents. I usually go for the cheek but if I get lips, I don't care. We hug more than kiss though.
redsprings 16th-Jan-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
It honestly depends on the relationship you have with your parents. I couldn't imagine kissing either my mother or father on the lips.
zeldafitzgerald 16th-Jan-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
I've done this with parents, grandparents and other extended family and friends.

It's not a big deal according to my world view.
queenweasley 17th-Jan-2013 12:42 am (UTC)
My whole family (on both sides) does this. It's just a quick peck, lips tightly closed. It's not gross, it's not sexual, and people who say it is are dumb.

It's weird for me but I wouldn't judge if anyone else did it.
