1940s Guide Shows How To Kiss Correctly


LIFE magazine published this guide for actors in 1942, but it may still come in handy today. According to these romantic pictures from the magazine, there are some vital basic steps to follow to achieve the perfect clinch. First, the how-to guide recommends that kissers should not stand too far apart – pointing out that actors doing this on stage look ‘juvenile if they are so stand-offish’.

“WRONG: They look too juvenile if they are so stand-offish”


“RIGHT: Boy and girl should stand close together and not hold each other too tightly”


“WRONG: Sprawling all over the chair is considered ungraceful”


“RIGHT: Girl should sit on arm of the chair and boy should hold her firmly but lightly”
