I *HAVEN'T* KISSED A GIRL . . .

. . . and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

There's been points where I've been surprised to be embarrassed by this fact, don't get me wrong. Once, I was out for a drunken dinner with a bunch of gals and the subject came up . . . and it turned out that I was the only girl out of about the ten present who HADN'T at some point snogged another female. I almost shrunk in my chair to find this out.

One of my other friends, one of the most supremely confident girls you would ever meet, has told me she has kissed other girls on many occasion. It is always aimed to titilate men. She admits this freely.

Despite the fact I have never snogged another girl, I have no desire to.

Do you think I don't realise a ton of guys have just clicked back off my blog - having stumbled upon it by accident, i assume (did you type "girls snogging" into google.com by any chance??? - at these words? I don't particularly care. I don't GET the whole idea of why girls snogging turns guys on.

Why am I thinking about this? It's been on my mind for the last few days since I heard this song for the first time.

It just seems like such a blatant marketing ploy to me. Like Madonna and Britney's infamous snog at some award show several years back when Britney was still sane (perhaps THAT was the beginning of her downfall?) Or the russian underage lesbians T.A.T.U. who turned out to not be lesbians after all - now THERE was a surprise . . . not.

Let's look at the facts. The girl in question (who is undoubtedly hot - and I hope that doesn't make you think I want to kiss her - cos I don't) is dancing around in tiny little outfits with a bunch of other girls. But despite a lot of eyeing up, skimpy costumes, PILLOW FIGHTING (hmm - cliche or what?) and saucy lyrics, nothing much is happening. Hence the titilation occurs. Obviously music videos cannot provide full-on porn (or is there actually a music channel for that??? with my freeview all I get is The Hits and TMF so perhaps I'm uneducated . . .) but it seems to me they are just asking people to "use their imagination".

In addition, it seems pretty clear from youtube comments, wikipedia info etc that Katy Perry is in fact dating the dude from Gym Class Heroes. So she ain't THAT confused about her sexuality. In fact, did she even WRITE the song? Bear with me, just gonna try and find out . . .

Well apparently she HELPED with it, but it had quite a few other co-writers as well. Now THERE'S a surprise.

(That being said, I think she looks like the kind of girl who would be more than willing to experiment. But perhaps she's just good at putting on an act.)

What makes the whole thing even worse though???

I actually really like the song.

Grrr, I really annoy myself sometimes...

  1. I've never kissed a girl either! And frankly, I don't think I ever will. Meh, nothing against it, I guess, just not my cup of tea... seeing as I am as straight as they come.

  2. I have kissed a girl, actually a few girls a few times and you're not missing out on anything by not doing that. Sure it's fun to say you've done it but in the end, it's the same as kissing a guy but with much softer lips.

  3. Haha, your posts always craqck me up. I love it when someone uses the word 'snogging' and it just sounds so natural. We don't really say snogging over here, but I wish I could!
    They've also been playing that song non-stop for the past few months, I liked it at first, but now I'm kinda over it.
    I've kissed my best friend in a bar so a guy would buy us drinks, but that was a very very long time ago, and it was just a peck!

  4. I don't think I have either. Unless it was back at uni and I was too drunk to remember. And since I'm in a relationships with someone I want to kiss till my lips are wrinkled I don't think I ever will. HAs it crossed my mind? Yes, when I was single. But, well, no regrets, really.

  5. Nope, I havent kissed a girl either. I've dirty danced with a few girls and again its purely for titillation. Sure, i dont know why guys find it so attractive, but the point is that they do.... and if that helps me in any way then so be it!

  6. Hey there! Thank you SO MUCH for the guest blog... That's probably exactly what I would say in French too. I'm half german and am fluent in that but otherwise... not that great! Thanks again. Much appreciated. I'll try and catch up with blog reading some point over the next week!!

  7. I have kissed a girl before. What I learned from it: never (EVER!) kiss a smoker (unless you smoke yourself) they taste like I'd expect an ashtray to taste...
    But I can't see there'd be ANY reason to be ashamed of not having kissed a girl...

  9. When I see two Hot Chicks kissing, I figure they are gay so I dont bother talking to them.

    Are guys supposed to think otherwise?
