Did you see couple-of-the-red-carpet Chanel Iman and A$AP Rocky share a kiss? Or what about when Kanye kissed “Same Love” singer (and Best Video With a Social Message winner) Mary Lambert. Or when Selena kissed 1D? Or when Daft Punk kissed each other through their helmets? Soooo kidding about the last one. Regardless, the VMAs are always about kissing in one way or another (AHEM, the Britney-Madonna-Xtina kiss of 2003!) so we had to ask our fave stars: What’s your favorite song to make out to?
Did anyone else notice that TLC‘s T-Boz called me “Boo”? My best VMA moment ever. And how exactly does aerobic legend Richard Simmons sing during his make-outs? And, whoa, the *NSYNC’s Christmas album? Thanks, Carly Aquilino and Chris Distefano, for that rec — I gotta play it the next time I kiss a guy.
If you’re making out and staying out, and it doesn’t lead to anything else, you should know you’re in good company. Whether you’re in high school or not, did you know that more than half of all high school students are abstaining from sex? If you are making out and then some, just remember how essential it is to protect yourself. According to MTV’s It’s Your (Sex) Life, half of all sexually active people will get an STD by age 25. Another fact: More than 50% of sexually active people will get HPV at some point in their lives. Abstinence is the only way to prevent this, but condoms and regular testing are essential if you’re gonna have sex. Learn more by going to It’s Your (Sex) Life or by taking action below.
Now, excuse me, I’m off to Chicago for vacay and need to pick up *NSYNC’s Home for Christmas album.
