No PDA Allowed

It may sound strange now, but back in the day (50s / 60s) public displays of affection were frowned upon.

Knowing that politicians and celebrities 'behaved' when cameras were around, is it any wonder that so many affairs and such scandals went on behind closed doors? Here are a few moments of the Kennedys as a couple.
