I was just sharing that horrid "kiss" link on facebook the other day

I think I will have to wait and see the rest of the show. I don't doubt that they pick the most sensational clips for the commercial to get people interested.

No doubt these people are super awkward though!

I'm not sure why celibacy is a big deal. I get people do it for religious reasons, but who cares? It still comes down to a personal choice for them and it isn't something that really matters to anyone but them.

I think it's just a different view of a lifestyle choice. And after that first kiss, it might be a warning to maybe practice a little before you pick the one you will be kissing forever. Just my opinion. Only my opinion. lol

I don't even think practice will help those two. Even my first kiss at 13 wasn't that awkward and weird. It was so bad you think it had to have been a joke for the cameras.

Watching that kiss was like looking into the sun. It draws your eye but it hurts to look.

I'll ditto Jillian, also. I can't feel sorry for adults that consent to have themselves exploited and possibly humiliated.

I've always felt like a ******* about my first kiss. But wow, I feel freaking GREAT after seeing that, lol! Seriously, that was just... wow. lol.

But I don't know if it mocks or celebrates celibacy. I know for me, I won't be teaching it to my children. I don't believe in it. But kudos for those that do!

It appears that by "celibacy", this couple not only meant no sex and no kissing; but also no practicing on the back of your hand and no watching other people kiss. Apparently they did get to watch a lot of guppies kissing.

Well I won't be watching that show, that is for sure. I don't remember my first kiss, but I know it was better than that. Those adults looked like 12 year olds, there was just something so immaturish about it.

As for the question, I don't know. They are adults, and I don't really think it's mocking them. It's a reality show right?

Isn't most reality tv just a glorified mockumentary anyway?
(in some cases not even glorified)

I don't think the show does anything to celibacy, promote or mock it. It's just a peek in the lives of those folks, basically. They aren't exactly the world's mascots for celibacy, or something.

Awkward doesn't even describe that though, lol.

i thought for a minute that one of them was an alien and literally sucking the other's insides out. Based on that "kiss" I actually fear for their safety when it comes to having sex

There are lots of rude jokes going on in my mind right now involving their nuptial bed and sucking. But I must. hold. back.

I couldn't sleep for a week after thinking about what their marriage night would be like, after that kiss. It was kind of like how I felt after watching Human Centipede.

I had DH watch the trailer and he did a shutter thing and said it was gross and creepy. I guess he's not going to watch.
