Apparently men are a little more comfortable with PDA than women.  Yep....a recent survey on "public displays of affection" asked more than 2,000 people what's okay and what isn't. 
And in general, men were more likely to say it's fine.

Here are five types of PDA and how many people think it's acceptable:

1.  Holding hands, 92% think it's fine.  That includes 90% of men and 93% of women.

2.  Hugging, 90%.  89% of men, and 90% of women.

3.  Kissing without tongues, 68%.  75% of men, and 62% of women.

4.  Kissing WITH tongues, only 15% think it's okay.  20% of men, and 9% of women.

5.  Heavy petting, just 4%.  6% of men, and 2% of women.  (Do people even still say "heavy petting"?)

BTW:  2% of people in the survey said NO amount of PDA is acceptable.

There was another survey a while back that found 58% of us are okay with people playing footsie . . . 35% think it's fine to sit on your significant other's lap at a party . . . and 22% think grabbing their butt in public is acceptable.
