1. “Okay, I know the cliché thing is butterflies. But it really was butterflies. This guy was a guy I said ‘I love you,’ to. Well, he said it first, and then we kissed. And I swear I just felt like, I don’t know, like there should be fireworks or something. Really we were just in his garage, but it’s still one of those moments I’ll never forget, as dumb as that sounds.”

2. “I was in my sister’s car with my date to the freshman dance in high school. I was really nervous and before I started the ignition, he leaned over and put his hand on top of mine. That was a little weird, but cute. I remember just looking up at him as we sat there in the parking lot and he kissed me. We still talk. We’re good friends now.”

3. “My first kiss was actually with someone really special who I cared about for a long time. I don’t know what else to say. It was as an amazing, storybook kind of experience. If only that relationship hadn’t ended so badly.”

4.“This is sort of embarrassing, but I’m twenty years old and I just had my first kiss three months ago. It was with my boyfriend. I was the most nervous person in the world, sweaty hands and feet, and I kept putting on Chapstick because I thought it would make my lips taste better. But my boyfriend held my hands and kissed me and then we hugged for a moment and I just felt so loved. Sometimes I wonder how I got so lucky.”

6. “My first kiss was really innocent. It was during a varsity football game, beneath the bleachers. We were both in the band, on a hot chocolate break, and one thing led to another. But it never went anywhere else. Kind of odd now that I think about it, but nice enough as far as memories go.”

— Fiona, 21

7. “Freshman year I was in the hallway right outside math class and this guy walked up to me and grabbed my face and it was just, BAM. He was wasted in the middle of the day, and it was like having a slimy suction cup stuck to my mouth for 5 whole miserable seconds. Later, I found out that he actually had a girlfriend. It was probably the worst day of my life.”

— Michelle, 27

10. “I don’t really remember it, truthfully. I’d been drinking that night. The only reason I even know it happened is because my buddy happened to take a picture of me making out with this chick. Not all that memorable, but there’s photographic evidence. ”

— Stanley, 22

11. “It was good. She was a girl I’d crushed on for a long time so I’d imagined it happening over and over again. Maybe that’s why I felt so prepared. It’s nice to get something you really want after dreaming about it for so long. Hasn’t happened that way ever since for me.”

— Matt, 24

12. “Wet. It was really wet. His tongue was all over my mouth and lips, doing weird circular motions. It was gross. It was also pretty depressing, because I thought that’s what it would always be like.”

— Faith, 23
