Many a first-kiss story is plagued by the awkwardness and inexperience of puberty. Even Katy Perry, never one for beating around the bush, confessed to W magazine that her first kiss, which took place during a game of Spin the Bottle in sixth grade (ah, nostalgia), was really gross.

"It got to be my turn, and I spun the bottle, and, all of a sudden, I felt like there was a wet fish in my mouth," she said. "That was my first kiss. When you’re in sixth grade, there’s no art to French kissing. There’s no cadence, no beautiful up and down, no waves. Instead, it just feels like your mouth is getting invaded by a slug."

The person responsible for Katy's first kiss remained nameless, which is pretty lucky for him or her, considering the singer can be ruthless when it comes to ranking exes and their *ahem* abilities. Perhaps she'd extend a bit of forgiveness in this particular scenario, though, considering puberty is a temporary state of being - thank you, God.
