Pucker Up - An Update

Cast your minds back to the beginning of March...

Fans of an American soap have launched a campaign demanding that two gay characters kiss more often. Really.
Viewers of "As The World Turns" are writing to CBS (one of the 3 big US broadcasters after ABC and NBC) and have even set up a website counting down how much time has passed since characters Luke and Noah last kissed. At the time of writing, 157 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes have elapsed.
They first kissed last summer in an episode that is thought to have been the first gay kiss shown in a US daytime soap. But they didn't kiss at Christmas or Valentine's day. (Mr. P sighs in exasperation...)

Well, after 211 days, 14 hours, 45 minutes and 45 seconds (no really, someone actually timed this! Once again Mr. P sighs in exasperation!), Luke and Noah have finally kissed. Series producers CBS say, "we continue to tell this and all our stories based on what we think is best creatively. This kiss is the natural evolution of the relationship between Luke and Noah".


  1. I'd have to be watching the show to take an interested in the 2 lads to be honest. I've no problem with the lad on lad action, especially if both are good looking.

  2. By the way this is going they're going to be waiting to get the end in!

  3. > This kiss is the natural evolution of the relationship between Luke and Noah.

    "Honey, we've been together 211 days now - I think it's time to take it to the next level."
