In this video by Tatia Pilieva, twenty strangers kiss for the first time, and it’s sweeter than you would imagine.
There’s something very sweet about this video. I think it’s the very obvious vulnerability of the people involved. The black and white videography and lighting help too. Who knew strangers kissing could be so romantic?
Kissing is one of the most intimate acts of affection that we can share with another human being, and the sad fact is that many people don’t know how telling a kiss truly is. Here at the Good Men Project, we did an in-depth article revealing some things you should know about what is truly revealed in a kiss because A Man’s Kiss Tells You Everything.
You may also be interested to see how kissing can be used to express non-sexual feelings to the same gender in this study by British researchers at the University of Bath on Straight British Men Kissing Each Other.
Editor’s note: Turns out this beautiful video was part of an ad campaign—some of the people in it are musicians and actors. But we don’t think that diminishes the reality that this was their first kiss, and they had just met. These truly are first kisses.

“Here’s the thing about The Good Men Project. We are trying to create big, sweeping, societal changes—–overturn stereotypes, eliminate racism, sexism, homophobia, be a positive force for good for things like education reform and the environment. And we’re also giving individuals the tools they need to make individual change—-with their own relationships, with the way they parent, with their ability to be more conscious, more mindful, and more insightful. For some people, that could get overwhelming. But for those of us here at The Good Men Project, it is not overwhelming. It is simply something we do—–every day. We do it with teamwork, with compassion, with an understanding of systems and how they work, and with shared insights from a diversity of viewpoints.” —– Lisa Hickey, Publisher of The Good Men Project and CEO of Good Men Media Inc.
