[Interviewer] Where was your first kiss?
00:02
Where on my body?
00:04
Where?
00:05
[Interviewer] Yes, where on your body?
00:07
(laughter)
00:09
Where was your first kiss?
00:12
My first real kiss in which we were both invested
00:16
of it, where was it?
00:21
That was in somebody special's kitchen
00:23
about three o'clock in the morning in Oakland, California.
00:26
[Interviewer] And was it someone you knew
00:28
or was it a party?
00:29
Oh yeah, we knew each other quite well.
00:31
[Interviewer] Well, some people don't.
00:33
Was it someone who became close to you
00:35
for a period of time
00:36
after-- Well, a gentleman
00:37
doesn't say but
00:39
yeah.
00:40
(laughter)
00:41
Where was my first kiss?
00:42
Okay, this is so embarrassing.
00:44
I was at a slumber party and
00:49
the girl that was having a slumber party,
00:51
I was in like sixth grade okay,
00:52
so I was pretty young,
00:53
and the girl's that having the slumber party
00:55
invited boys and so boys showed up
00:57
and we all started playing truth or dare.
01:00
And a guy
01:03
dared me
01:04
to french kiss him.
01:05
I was too scared to kiss him in the room with everyone
01:08
so everyone had to leave the room
01:09
and so he's approaching me
01:10
and I'm backing up, and backing up, backing up,
01:12
and finally I'm like against the wall
01:15
and he is right here
01:15
and I just closed my eyes and just stick out my tongue
01:20
and it grazed his nose like that,
01:23
it like licked his face a little bit.
01:27
And then he yelled, ew, she tried to french kiss my nose
01:32
and ran out and told the entire slumber party group.
01:39
I dunno if that counts as a kiss
01:41
but it--
01:42
[Interviewer] Yes, it does.
01:43
Okay.
01:44
It was fairly traumatic.
01:45
And the good thing is I will say,
01:46
I have figured out how to french kiss.
01:49
Where was my first?
01:51
Oh God.
01:53
Southgate.
01:54
Southgate is like a bit outside London.
01:58
There was this girl
02:00
who's friends with my boy's,
02:05
he was datin' this girl.
02:07
[Interviewer] You kissed your friend's girlfriend?
02:09
No.
02:10
I kissed.
02:12
[Interviewer] The girlfriend's friend?
02:13
Yes.
02:14
[Interviewer] I see.
02:15
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
02:16
And it was in Southgate,
02:17
it was like behind a KFC or somethin',
02:19
'cause I'm romantic.
02:20
[Interviewer] Did you see her again?
02:21
Never.
02:24
My first kiss was at a dinner party
02:28
with a bunch of those friends that I used to hang out with
02:31
and
02:33
someone decided that everyone should kiss each other
02:35
with pass an ice cube through one mouth to the other,
02:39
so it wasn't even with someone I was dating,
02:41
it was just the guy sitting next to me
02:43
who I, you know, passed him an ice cube
02:46
from my mouth.
02:47
[Interviewer] Were you nervous?
02:50
I was excited.
02:52
It was pretty cool.
02:53
I called them ice cube kisses
02:54
and now it's like, I still kinda like it.
02:57
So, as I was growing up we would go camping
03:00
for summer vacations in this trailer,
03:02
and so my first kiss was with some random guy
03:05
as we were catching frogs at this lake in Germany.
03:10
We had six frogs and they were (imitates frog)
03:13
as we were kissing so that was kind of sweet.
03:16
I came up with this idea,
03:18
I was 15 years old,
03:21
to start putting honey on my lips at night
03:26
so maybe it would absorb it and if he sucked
03:29
hard enough on my lips he'd taste it.
03:33
So, I went on to put the honey on my lips,
03:35
I burned my mouth,
03:36
I had ants come at night in my room
03:39
and bite my face.
03:41
So, please girls do not do the honey
03:45
on your lips if you're gonna kiss for the first time.
03:48
Okay, so,
03:50
there was a party,
03:52
I had just gone to a new school and
03:58
I was 12, 13
04:00
and it was a co-ed school,
04:02
my first time at a co-ed school in the south of England,
04:05
and you know hormones raging
04:08
and I had just been introduced to this new group of friends
04:12
and there was another new girl at school
04:14
who said, my parents are out of town
04:16
I'm gonna have a party.
04:17
I don't know what happened
04:19
but it was like
04:20
Bacchanalia at 13.
04:26
No one was having sex,
04:28
it was just like everyone was
04:31
just like, oh we get to all kiss each other
04:33
and it was like 150, 200 people,
04:36
and I think that was the night of my first kiss
04:39
and her name was Amy Francis.
04:41
But then three minutes later I kissed
04:44
another girl in my year.
04:47
I'm not gonna say her name.
04:50
But it was like this,
04:51
but there was nothing special about it,
04:53
it was just let's get this out the way.
04:56
Let's do this.
04:59
And it was about
05:00
five hours of everyone just going,
05:04
have we made out yet?
05:05
No.
05:07
Just like, what is going?
05:08
But it was all very like,
05:10
above board
05:11
and amazing and free.
05:13
And then at a certain point my friend Simon is like,
05:15
isn't that your mom,
05:16
and I looked to my left
05:17
and I think I was in the middle of something
05:19
with a girl that I really like
05:21
and I saw my mother,
05:22
and I just kind of dropped it
05:23
and I just kind of like,
05:24
let's go, let's go, let's go.
05:25
It was like midnight.
05:28
But it was like
05:29
this magical,
05:31
it was a magical night for a 13 year old
05:34
where anything was possible.
