A cute survey over at What Japan Thinks has results from men and women about what went through their heads during their first kiss, the top answer for both genders naturally being “is this what it's supposed to feel like?” (Pretty sure that one's universal, really.)

But then we get to the number two option. For men, it's “is my breath fresh?” (89.1%). Women's concerns are a bit more pressing, however...69.1% wanted to know “how do I breathe?” (the same question was #6 for men, 32.8%). Both sides also wondered what happens afterwards, and hoped that no one saw them.

Another interesting split: 35.8% of women wondered if they were really kissing the right guy, while only 15.6% of men wondered the same thing.  Also, 12.5% of men thought that they'd wind up marrying the girl they kissed, while most women were more realistic-- only 4.9% were thinking marriage during that first pucker-up.

I personally plead the fifth on talking much about my first kiss, on the grounds that it may incriminate...well, someone, let's just put it that way. That should be enough for you to giggle about, anyway. As for what was going through my head, that would have been something like, “wow, I can't believe that line worked,” “hm, he tastes like Burgerville,” and “ack, it's time to cross the street to get back to the school.”

How about you guys? Have any kissing stories for us lonely otaku?

I think the "how long" and "what now" are appropriate a first kiss is a horrible horrible thing >___>

I had my first kiss when I was 7 or 8 y/o with a girl who was a little bit younger, and I can't say I was thinking about anything at that point. We were just having fun.

Shortly thereafter I also kissed a 13 y/o girl who was obviously kind of a pedo, but I really didn't care because she was hot. :P

My first kiss was a "deep" kiss, so questions of how long it should go on were running through my head. Also, I was a little like Will Ferrell in Talladega Nights when he didn't know what to do with his hands.

Dropped my first girlfriend outside the doctor's office.

"Uh, can we uh kiss"

She nods.

*kissing actions*

"See you later"

*runs off to his best friend who was around the corner going on about a first kiss*

This was a year and a half ago.

Funny this comes up, I've been watching romance anime non-stop, and was just wondering about getting a girlfriend.
Oh well!

Anyway, as the #jtorians know, I've always got something going on with someone.

@Desisashi: I'm sure she feels the same way.

Mine was during the first X-Men movie in the theatre. I was like "OMG! SQUEE! My life is complete, I've finally been kissed. This is sooooo romantic." Please note I was in 14 at the time.

"if you've had one"
Ouch Gia, talk about jokingly insulting your loving audience.

Mine was... a long time ago (jeee, thanks for making me feel old Gia :P).
Girl who lived in my estate, I must have been about 12/13 at the time. Dawwwww.
