‘Girl Code’ Aha! Moment: Marking Your Territory With PDA [Video]

Whether it’s why you should love your boobs or why you should not cut your own bangs, MTV’s “Girl Code” delivers fresh insight about all-too-familiar topics, and is sure to sometimes have its female viewers fervently nodding their heads while mouthing to the television screen, “Yessss, exactllllly!!!” Oprah calls that kind of catharsis an “aha! moment,” which sounds like a positive thing, so we’re highlighting a different part of the show each week that made us feel like maybe, just maybe, we’re not the loner freaks we originally assumed. Take a look at the latest below.

“You want your boyfriend to be affectionate in public to, like, prove to your friends that he’s into you…which is sort of twisted.” — Jamie Lee speaks the truth.

So, you’ve finally landed a guy who seems capable of going the distance. He could even be the guy. Congrats! Of course, your first instinct is to parade him around in public to show the world that a) you’re super-lovable, and b) you’re super-happy. Luckily, “Girl Code” dictates that PDA is A-OK — you need to mark your territory! And whether that means holding hands at the movie theater, making out on a park bench, or, if you’re Jessimae Peluso, peeing on them “like a cat,” public displays of affection serve their purpose in keeping the naysayers and home wreckers at bay.

“I have totally used PDA as a strategy,” Tanisha Long proudly exclaims in the clip below. “That’s how I let girls know that, like, this is mine.” Yet while Tanisha sees the act as a preemptive strike against predatory women, Andrew Schultz shares the male point of view, which, not surprisingly, is a whole lot simpler. “If a guy’s all over you in public, that is a complete compliment,” he says. “That means he’s not only proud to be with you, he’s also checking to see if you’re proud to be with him!” Hey, as long as his belt stays buckled until we’re behind closed doors…and he doesn’t pee on us.
