A Kiss is Just a Kiss: VIDEO


When friends get together over the holidays and end up drinking too much eggnog, they'll do stuff like dare a straight boy to make out with a gay boy. Which is what's happening here, according to our tipster.

However, a dare becomes much less of a dare when it's a desire, and the straight boy's more of a Kinsey 5.

Your morning wake up, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. So?

    Oh, right, we're still a novelty for the amusement of straights and have no other value in society. Similar to zoo animals.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  6. Why are you posting this vaguely homophobic tripe here? To remind us that we're still a bunch of freaks?

  7. What's with the hate? In the midst of all the political obscenities, this is sweet, sexy, and entertaining. Thanks, Andy!

  8. Exactly, Rascal. I am shocked by the continual negativity of the posters on this site - I'm sure it must make Andy and the other admins insane. This blog is of such a high quality (minus the Glee posts, ha) and all these people - Rick, Beaverhausen, whoever - chime in just to hear themselves complain. I wish Towleroad would adopt Reddits upvote/downvote feature, so we could flush the whiners straight to obscurity.

  9. Wow you all are some bitter queens, sheesh. This was a great morning treat and a very hot kiss. I love how British boys have softened their idea of masculinity. Hell I even hear that straight guys kissing in bars and the like for fun/get, girls, whatever haha is quite common. Thank you for this Andy!

  10. @Barilla: So you have nothing to say except to complain about those who have some life experience and perspective to meaningfully contribute here? Do you find safety in your vapid irrelevance, so you seek a thought-free homophile comfort zone?

    Please explain yourself.

    (I despise Glee, too, because it's another gay zoo. And the music is terrible.)

  11. Oh go dry up, you old sourpuss. People who use the word vapid show their true colours.

  12. The bitter queens on here make it impossible to enjoy the comments. I love Towleroad but can't stand the comments. What is up with all the negativity? That's not a very healthy way to live.

  13. well.... i'll say this - the "gross-out" response that many straight men have to male-male affection is a societal one; an elective response that one has because they think it's the response they're "supposed to have", if they are indeed straight.

    that is, of course, complete bollocks. as any of us who engaged in opposite-sex relationships before we Came Out will attest to, kissing a member of the sex you're not naturally attracted to is not the vomit-inducing experience in terror that far too many films and tv shows have made it seem it would be; as per the "omg, i can't believe i just kissed another guy!" moments in a few billion "comedies".

    i hear what you're saying, anastasia, about the Zoo thing - but i can frankly see an upside to what you're saying. when i was at college many moons ago i was the only "already Out" guy in the program; there is an element off "Zoo" when you're the first, or the first Visible Member of a heretofore unknown "group", to many people.
    i kissed a straight boy or three in college. why? to satisfy THEIR curiosity. there's a world of men who've been conditioned to not only feel as if they have to act repulsed at the idea of male-male affection, but the idea that it's impossible to possibly enjoy, to any degree, participation in such affection.
    the reality is that despite our orientations, there's more to "enjoying a kiss" or "moment" than mere biology; it's one-on-one chemistry. you can be straight, 100% oriented to the opposite-sex, and yet still be able to enjoy a kiss with someone of the same sex.
    just sayin'.

  14. Yeah for turning another "straight"-boy gay. He's about 2 years away from stepping fully out of the closet.

    Besides, that was hot. My nips are hard.

    And for the negative folks on here, get a life.

  15. "Straight" boys who kiss gay boys like that always end up coming out as gay boys. Always.

  16. Dear Ms. Beaverhausen,

    Thank you. What self-respecting gay man would allow himself to be utilized as novelty entertainment for a bunch of drunk assholes is beyond me. But then to have those same assholes defended by saying that this degenerative and condescending display was "sweet" and "nice" is, as you so accurately described, vapid.

    Of course, pointing out the completely offensive nature of this ignorant display leads to the ever simplistic whine fests of "I wish we didn't have to see posts that had an opinion different than mine! Gay men should be marginalized and how dare you criticize it!"

    So, thank you, Ms. Beaverhausen. I look forward to being added to the long list of "hateful, bitter queens" who have the audacity to point out when something is demeaning and inappropriate.

  17. @barilla I want "People who use the word vapid show their true colours." on a t-shirt. Sooo true!

  18. Old joke:

    Q: What's the difference between a straight guy and a gay guy?

    A: Four beers

  19. Nothing new. "Gay chicken" videos and "Emo dudes kissing" videos have been all over Youtube for years. Old news.

  20. This is partly generational. My younger friends (under 30 and especially under 25) are for the most part much more comfortable with same-sex expressions of affection and intimacy. Their view of sexuality tends to be much more fluid than than my generation's bipolar gay/straight attitude toward orientation.

  21. well. crazy turn of comments. Andy isn't responsible for the world as a whole accepting gays as normal people. If anything, he should be whatever he calls "himself". Apparently he likes straight guys kissing dudes. I also think he likes that mormon american idol kid. This is a better blog than most because it caters to many people.

    If you want problems with this blog:
    -Comment filtering/poor comment policy.
    -Horrible racism in comments.
    -Terrible, misleading headlines, huffpo bad.
    -Touchy guest contributors.
    -No real voice or presence by Andy, just aggregation.
