Should you make out with someone in the backseat of the Uber? Will I get a lower rating?

I'm just curious what drivers think about this, and if making out in the backseat of an Uber would make my passenger rating go down. Nothing crazy happening but I'm just curious what people's opinions are on this.

    Would you want a couple of strangers making out in the back of your car?

    As a driver, I will tell you it happens often. Been driving taxi in NYC for many years, I have seen everything.  People making out in the back is a routine on weekends.  Something about keeping it going between the bar/club to wherever they are headed.  

    It's awkward, but I don't stop them.  Remember though, many Uber drivers now have dashcam that records everything.  Thank that Subway executive that knocked the driver over the head and grabbed his hair.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED.  Why would you want to make out in someone else's car?  with someone else in it?  Do you want someone in your hotel room while you are making out with your boyfriend? That's weird.

    I get it that some people are into this stuff, but come on.  Not in my car.

    Actually, I had to look this up.  It's actually a part of their community guidelines.

    Give riders and drivers some personal space

    We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people in the car. But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Uber has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what.

      Yes, but that doesn't say anything about making out. You just can't flirt.  Kissing isn't touching.

    Didn't we learn anything from the other farting thread?  Making out lands somewhere on the 4 levelf of cleaning severity rue.

      Did you know Uber has a NO SEX RULE.  I am not making this up.

      • Physical contact with the driver or fellow riders. As our community guidelines make clear, you shouldn’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Uber has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct with drivers or fellow riders, no matter what. And you should never hit or otherwise hurt a driver or fellow passenger.

      For those of you who don't remember.

      • Level 1: Vacuuming needed
      • Level 2: Vomitting outside of car
      • Level 3: Vomit inside car.
      • Level 4: Bodlly fluids inside car.

      So, making out lands somewhere between 3 and 4.

        I don't get why Level 1 is Vacuuming need but Level 2 is Vomiting OUTSIDE of the car? It seems like level one would be worse...

    No way, you may get a higher rating if you let the driver watch. not sure who would downvote. hehe

    Me personally as a lyft driver don’t really care. If couples are making out in my car, I am happy that you chose not be a lesbian or gay. Make out and kiss each other as much as you want. It even excites me

    This is a queue to reply, "the rating will depend on how you perform."  or "depend on whether you let the driver join in."

    Make out in your own car and have some respect for yourself and the driver.

    The way I see it as long as they're not vandalizing a vehicle or doing anything illegal they're fine cuz it's their dime but you want to go farther very well there expect me to charge the cleaning fee and I reserve the right to watch LOL( just joking about that part) but point being the longer they're in the car the more I get paid and when I'm on the clock it's about customer satisfaction

    just like jbauer, I am a driver and heard and seen everything. I don't mean to sound gross, but all kinds of sounds and noises can be heard in the back.  

    I think the unwritten rule is to don't distract the driver and keep it somewhat calm.  Kissing should be alright, but nothing more...right?
