hot and heavy
adj. when two people are engaged in an intense make-out session, but not actually having sex.
Sometimes, you want to scratch an itch for passionate, erotically-charged interaction...but it's not for smut. This meme is for those that prefer the build-up, the tension, wandering hands, heavy breathing, testing boundaries—all the good stuff before the act of sex itself or that might be mutually exclusive to sex. Perhaps your character might even be too young for the act itself, yet you still want to explore their reaction to getting hot and bothered (and awkward, if applicable). That said, there is no sex in this meme. The point of it is to create the anticipation for it and once things get going, you can fade to black.
