Where in America can you get it on in public — and where is it an absolute no-no to show affection?

I don’t know about you, but I’m the  first person to cringe when I see a couple in the midst of a hot-and-heavy PDA session (that’s public display of affection for you plebes) and the first person to be all about indulging in one (with a boyfriend, of course). It’s a good thing then that my latter self lives in California, a state which happens to be A-OK with PDA, according to a survey by Chemistry.com. But where else can you smooch your other half out in the open, and where should you avoid getting handsy with your man?

I’m a bit shocked by the results here. For example, who knew Florida was so repressed? As for Sin City? Apparently its residents aren’t so OK with being sinful. Shocker of the century.

It’s also a bit surprising that Iowa is such a hit when it comes to twisting tongues in public. Hey, apparently we learn something new every day!

Are you surprised by this list? Do you agree with it? Weigh in!
