Study: Straight men kissing more often

Eric "Coach Gumby" Anderson, the cross-country-coach-turned-sociologist, recently released a fascinating study showing that homophobia among British teenage boys has become so mellow in many areas that straight boys think nothing of making out with one another.

The trend toward male same-sex smooches has skyrocketed in recent years, Anderson said. It began on the professional soccer field, where players often share exuberant kisses after goals. That made kissing between men acceptable for college and high-school players, Anderson said. Then the players took the same behaviors to nights out in pubs, spreading the trend to non-athletes.
