Teenager Malcolm Pickard has built a fantastic contraption to measure the voltage of snogs - a "snogometer".
M/S of Malcolm (a slightly spotty youth) fiddling around with his contraption, fitting light bulbs to it. It has fairy lights on it too.
A young teenage couple sit on a sofa looking at a magazine. Malcolm gives the pair electrodes to hold whilst they engage in a passionate mashing session. They really go to it! Narrator would have us believe that this is a Trowbridge Youth Club party - looks more like someone's front room. The kissing machine registers a number 2 snog. They have another go - lights flash and bells ring. The boy licks his lips! Narrator says: "Mother's got nothing to worry about because it's all child's play" - M/S of a woman sitting knitting - presumably watching this display of snogging - outrageous!
The electrodes are handed over to a more mature couple (the first two looked about 15 - these are more like 17 or 18). It is lucky Malcolm trying out his invention with a nice bird. They get down to a passionate snog. This time the light flashes on and off like crazy then to a mad sound effect explodes! Excellent.
Note: excellent film to show an eccentric invention and the disgusting habits of teenagers!
