"Now a soft kiss," beloved English poet John Keats once wrote. "Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss."

Indeed, truer words have never been spoken. Whether it's on film ("Brokeback Mountain," "Cruel Intentions") or in real life (the now-famous same-sex smooch between two female U.S. petty naval officers after the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" last fall), there are few things we have a harder time resisting than a passionate kiss.

In honor of Valentine's Day, check out photos and videos of some of our favorite same-sex kisses from around the world, as well as on TV and on the big screen. If these don't get you in a romantic mood, we don't know what will.
