"Old people don't snog" - true or false?

Sorry, I know it's almost a TAAT... It's not actually about the other thread, it's just picking up one comment made to me.
I have examples of some people I know who still snog (e.g. my sister after 20 years of her relationship)
A poster called me a liar confused

Apparently old people don't snog, and if they kiss it's a peck on the cheek and they certainly don't do it in public.


So, please share with me your granny snogging stories. No lies though please people!

Me, I'm 41 and regularly snog my 52yo fiancé, sometimes... in public!!! shockgrin

So any really old people on here want to admit to not have withered up completely?

I suppose it's okay to snog if you're confident that your dentures are secured firmly in place.

Cabrinha Thu 30-Jun-16 18:15:35

Couldn't you just take them out if they're insecure?
Or is that more for old person blow jobs do you think?

Best done with eyes firmly closed.

My grandparents regularly snogged.
When we were on holiday my grandad would ask my nan if she'd like to go back to their room to 'get the dinner ready' in an all inclusive resort. We all knew what they meant. We didn't even see it as cringe worthy....We would just laugh and think it was so lovely that they still fancied the arse off each other after 40 years of marriage.

The ageist drivel on here is pretty depressing, isn't it? I'm 55 and my husband is 61. I suppose in many people's eyes we should be packing up and making for the old folks' home, but I think we will be able to hold on a bit longer yet. And yes, there is still snogging here, even after 36 years together.

51 and 54, we still snog, our 8yo is horrified and scandalised! grin

ifonlystpancras Thu 30-Jun-16 18:41:22

God, I wish we still did. I hope some people do. sad

RosettaPebble Thu 30-Jun-16 19:21:18

I spent a lovely day in the very busy park on Sunday. Walking hand in hand and snogging on a bench. I'm 44 he's 51.

WatchMeSoar Thu 30-Jun-16 19:26:05

40s and 50s here and no we don't snog.
Though in fairness I can't stand the miserable bastard........

I'm 41. I've been single for much of the past 3.5 years since my husband and I separated.

I haven't been on a date in over a year, so no going to get much chance any time soon, but I love a good snog.

So many people have said to me that, at my age, I'm probably going to be happy with 'companionship' (I think they mean 'without sex'). They are wrong. I want to snog up against a tree until I'm weak at the knees until I'm ancient. Should I ever get the opportunity again...

AnyFucker Thu 30-Jun-16 19:43:27

Yes, I snog with my husband.

Not in public though. Never have, even when a whippersnapper.

Fishcake72 Thu 30-Jun-16 19:46:28

43 and 46. Love a snog! My 11 year old thinks we are gross lol.

I don't know if we're old, but our kids think we are (17,15, 9) we are 38 and 46 and LISTEN KIDS

Not in public though...

My 9 yr old said to me, I would like to adopt children as I couldn't have real ones as you'd, y'know, have to do that thing that was in that book you gave me
the all about sex one?
Yes <shudders> it's just disgusting and it means, well it means you and dad must have done it. I mean, how many times HAVE you done it?
God knows, thousands, maybe millions

<Third child recoils in horror >

I love being a parent

Cabrinha Thu 30-Jun-16 19:53:36

Hats off to Owllady! I'll have some of what she's having.

HyacinthBouquetNo1 Thu 30-Jun-16 19:54:03

We are 46 and 50, still have a snog every now and then, still got our own teeth, well most of emgrin

Somerville Thu 30-Jun-16 19:54:35


I've just logged in so haven't seen the other thread. Someone thinks old people don't snog?

It's free and fun - why would anyone stop?!

My parents (60's) definitely still snog. They wouldn't call it that, though. It's french kissing. grin

"French kissing"! Not heard that term in decades! Me 62, husband 54, still snogging. At home. In private.

Somerville Thu 30-Jun-16 20:06:23

3 years ago I got braces. Over Sunday lunch in front of the whole family my mother asked if I could still french kiss. My husband started choking on his roast potato, having not really heard that term before he thought she was asking about oral sex. confused hmm grin grin
