Real Straight Men Kiss Other Straight Men

I think it's interesting. And I give them 'props' for doing it. But I still notice on the video that while they are making a statement it seems kind of a 'goof' for them. Assuming they are all actually straight and none are in the closet, the kissing another guy still seems pretty uncomfortable for some of them unless part of it is just doing it in front of a camera. Now I could see where French kissing might be uncomfortable for them. But only a few seem to be Frenching.

 

On the other hand, long time readers will not be surprised and may even remember me mentioning before, that my first experience of sex of any type was with an escort when I was 41. Along with that experience was the first time I ever had a passionate kiss. All my previous kisses- even on the few dates with girls I had had in high school had been quick pecks on the lips or cheeks. Before my 1st escort experience I wasn't even sure I would like French kissing. Sticking your tongue in someone's mouth or vice versa seemed gross! Little did I know how much I would love kissing once I learned how. So the point I'm trying to make- - while at one time I would have been totally grossed out by passionately kissing anyone- male or female- but especially females as I was not attracted to them- I think now - I could probably kiss an average woman even on camera without looking as embarrassed as some of these guys do. Now I'll admit possibly I'm wrong.

 

So what about you guys who are like me- if there are any- the Forum Members who neither married nor really ever dated women. Do you think you would feel as uncomfortable kissing a woman as some of these men do kissing another man?

Those guys are probably embarrassed about the stigma. Also, you might underestimate how awkward it could be to kiss someone you're not attracted to if it's been a while since you've done that.

 

Watch out, this female is about to kiss you. Go to 1:00 to get your smooch.

Admittedly kissing women on stage is part of my career requirement but, despite having no real or prolonged sexual relationships with a female, it has never been awkward. In fact, a woman is rated in my top three kisses so far in life. It was a wonderful kiss. :)

 

As for the video, I found it a bit too cutesy but I applaud the intention. I think it would have been more effective for the straight guys to make out with gay guys. Not like some straight fantasy porn but artfully so. I think that truly would have extended the hand across the waters as it were. Also, why were there no nod to lesbians and their allies? I find myself puzzled that no female celebrities were included.

As a gay actor, one of my job requirements is kissing women so I have very strong opinions about straight men kissing men in films, t.v., and onstage. If you are a straight actor and you accept a role in which you have to kiss a man, that's your job just as it is mine when I accept a role in which I have to kiss a woman. It's not unpleasant, it's not a turn-on, it's just your job as an actor to make it real and honest for the audience. I once played Romeo with a Juliet who was a lesbian in real life. Every single review mentioned the passion of our 2 love scenes. THAT's acting!!

I really, really think this style of campaigning for gay tolerance could be persuasive in the US.....as compared to other preachy campaigns that don't really connect with straights....

 

find some secure, straight, masculine, well-known guys who have a popular following, are very much anti-homophobic, and, therefore, willing to participate in some sort of PSA....ask them to kiss (a good bit more than a peck) each other in a non-goofy/non-giggly way without trying too hard to make the point....they can joke around and have fun before and after the kiss and should make the whole thing seem unremarkable.....

 

anybody here in the PR/ad/PSA business with connections to major media??!!!

I think the awkwardness might be more from the format of the photoshoot than the actual kissing. True, for some of these guys it may be the first time they've locked lips with another guy, so to then do that in front of a crew would be awkward enough.

 

I've only done a couple of still photo shoots, but based on that experience I can say it's an odd exercise to go through. You're putting together a composition, the photographer is telling you to lower your chin/look this way/smile more/smile less/turn this way/relax and look natural, so half the challenge is trying to comply with what the photographer is requesting and trying to remember it all. In the video I can see one of the guys looking over at the photographer with a look that says, "like this?" These guys are celebs but not necessarily models, so may not be all that experienced with doing posed, still photos. Then you've got the added element of the "behind the scenes" video person buzzing around, and you're kissing someone you'd ordinarily not be kissing... all very awkward, leading to nervous laughter and uncomfortable looks.

 

There are some hunky guys here, and I appreciate the sentiment. Like azdr says, would love to see something like this in the US.

France has been on the same page for several years now.

 

You'll be surprised at the number of straight men in the showbiz, including some famous TV hosts, who kiss other straight men on the lips on primetime TV. They contributed to make commonplace and trivialize two men kissing. Furthermore, that's not just some Internet campaign, but live on primetime National TV.

It might connect with some, but others would just go, "Ew, gross." I don't think straight people have to like the idea of two men kissing/having sex, they just have to respect their right to do it. Another issue is that it could detract from the "we're all born straight, gay, or bi" message.

 

I may have binge watched all of the mythicbells - Persian videos. I am now suffering from cuteness overload and I regret nothing. :p

Judging from the comments on the Persian videos, many straight men lost their manhood after watching. They regained it by punching a wall. :cool:

You are right. I was probably too severe in my assessment.

Also, people react with nervous laughter when they do something uncomfortable.

 

I remember being in a first aid class, and going to the middle of the room to do the mouth-to-mouth on the dummy. We had to it individually, one at a time, in front of the whole class.

 

Everyone else laughed and laughed through the whole thing. (Because of this, the class took for-freaking-ever!)

 

EVERYONE, except me. The silence was incredible, because I'm the only one who took it seriously and didn't get the giggles.
