Welcome to the kissing library!
Since 2015, we've been gathering small groups of friends, family and strangers to share their meaningful kisses. Connecting us to joy and sorrow, each kissing story offers a portal into a unique life. From missed kisses to ones we long to revisit, these stories explore family, friendship, romance, identity, politics and good old-fashioned fantasy.
Enjoy new kisses added each week, and an archive of remembered kisses below.
