Seven minutes in heaven
Seven minutes in heaven is a teenagers' party game first recorded as being played in Cincinnati in the early 1950s. Two people are selected to go into a closet or other dark enclosed space and do whatever they like for seven minutes. Sexual activities are allowed; however kissing and making out are more common. Variations on the game expand the time allowed to any reasonable short period up to 5 hours. The participants can be selected by various methods, such as spinning a bottle, or drawing lots. Limits are established either before the game or by the two participants once alone.
In 2011, Saturday Night Live writer Mike O'Brien introduced a comedy routine called '7 Minutes in Heaven with Mike O'Brien' wherein he interviews celebrities in a closet, and closes by trying to kiss the celebrity.
