Nothing is more satisfying than a damn good kiss. The anticipation! The foreplay! The saliva! It’s safe to say swapping spit with another homo sapien is one of the most electrifying things one can do on this planet. (Next to going to McDonald’s twice in one day, of course.)
Pop culture knows this, which is why movies and TV shows are chock-full of steamy makeout sessions for your viewing pleasure. Celebrities are guilty of puckering up in public, too, and we gladly consume their PDA. What can we say? The thirst is real.
These 14 smooches are saucy enough to quench even the most parched THOT. From IRL stars like Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. to cinema staples like Titanic (1997), one thing is certain: Tinsel Town knows tons about tonsil hockey. Let’s play.
Be sure to catch all your favorite rom-coms and love shows during VH1’s 14 Days of Love.
