Kiss Me, You Fool

2007_11_30.kiss.jpgThe cover story of the Red Eye today is the age-old topic of public smooching. The article itself is nothing special, but some of the quote are too good to pass up:

"Licking each other's fingers and making out on a packed train is too much."

"No one wants to see that...Everyone likes to get their groove on, but come on."

"Back where I'm from, in nightclubs you can basically do what you want. I haven't seen too much of that in Chicago... [I have had sex in clubs in Europe and would do so here beacause] I'm in my own little world [during sex]."

"I kiss and cuddle when I'm in the bedroom."

Which reminds us: The Kiss, a living sculpture installation at the MCA, only runs through the end of December. If you've been dying to see people kiss in an arty way and don't mind feeling like a voyeur, now's your chance.
