In brief: PDA
Acts of physical intimacy in view of your parents will always be unnerving.
You maybe over estimating how your parents will act if they are able get to know him and his background/family/culture. Hugging & kissing is sometimes construed as exhibitionism by parents (who feel acts should be performed in more private settings). Communicate with your parents re:discomfort & your fear will disappear!
