spin the bottle

A game typically played by children or teenagers in which someone spins a bottle on its side in the center of a circle of people, and the person whom the bottle ends up pointing at must kiss the person who spun it. My wife and I actually had our first kiss from a game of spin the bottle when we were in high school, and it has been true love ever since. Don't you think we're all a little bit too old to be playing spin the bottle?

spin the bottle

A kissing game. A weekend party of adolescents. The living room or playroom was darkened and a bunch of girls and boys sat around a circle. A boy placed an empty cola bottle on the floor in the center of the ring and spun it. The bottle stopped, its neck pointed at a girl—whom the guy got to kiss! Then it was the girl's turn . . . Ah, for the days of such innocent kissing games as “Spin the Bottle” and “Post Office” (two groups in different rooms, each person goes to the other room and kisses members of the opposite sex), where the worst that the participants could expect was to be an embarrassing surprise visit from parents or chaperone.
