The best kissers rarely make the best partners
When is a drunken, adulterous kiss just a drunken, adulterous kiss, to be forgiven and dealt with in private… and when is it something more? That’s the question on everyone’s lips this week, after Strictly Come Dancing’s Sean(n) Walsh and Katya Jones were photographed in an embrace outside a London pub.
I would say that it’s something more when it’s the kind of kiss that Seann and Katya had last week. Seeing the pictures, I was immediately sent into a dreamlike state, fantasising about being kissed in such a way. That was an erotic kiss. It was a passionate kiss. It was the kind of kiss that most married humans have consigned to ancient history. What I would
have given to be Katya. Or Sean(n). Either would do, if it meant I got a snog such as the one plastered all over the nation’s tabloids.
But then I read the tweet sent in response by Sean(n)’s now ex-girlfriend. With great dignity and a lovely dollop of humour (she was keeping the cat, she wrote), Rebecca Humphries detailed how the infidelity had taken place on her birthday, and that Walsh had labelled her a “psycho” when she questioned him. And I remembered that, often, the most passionate and erotic kissers do not make the best life partners.
