Incredibly Hot, Straight Soccer Stars Share Celebratory Smooch On Field

Ivan-Rakitic-Daniel-Carrico-gay-kissWhile America sat and complained about Michael Sam‘s celebratory kiss with boyfriend Vito Cammisano, two comfortably heterosexual (read: European) soccer players shared an impassioned mouth-to-mouth kiss on the field and it’s virtually a nonissue for the European media.

The Daily Mail reports that Ivan Rakitic and Daniel Carrico, both playing for Sevilla FC, locked lips in front of cameras and delivered the most breathtaking Croatian/Portuguese smooch after winning Sevilla’s third first-place title at the annual UEFA Europa League in Turin, Italy.

This summer, Rakitic will play for Croatia in the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. One can only hope he steals another casual kiss with another beautiful teammate.

Let’s have a moment of silence for European soccer, a movement determined to bring gay kisses and steamy gay porn to every household on Earth. Bless.

    This is why I love man wherever they are from the Mediterranean area. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are so affectionate with each other. They aren’t afraid to put their arm around each other, hold hands, press their bodies against each other, or even kiss like this. You don’t see this from many Northern European men, but anyone from Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal I like this.

    Man, I would just llove to travel that whole region and soak up all that man!

    It won’t “necessarily” keep them from being rapidly homophobic. Not saying these two are, but they very well could be despite the kissing.

    @crowebobby: Thank you. I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen things like this where the guys themselves turn out to be not so gay friendly. They might not have attributed anything else to it other than being affectionate.

    In a moment of great emotion and celebration, you must share your feelings somehow. The best way is to kiss whomever is in front of you.

    A wonderful gesture…but the dudes missed the mark. A little tongue-tackle would help for sure!

    Truth. I was in Greece on holiday last year and loved how open the men were with their closeness and intimacy (if thats the right word) with me without it being sexual in any way. Very different ideologies of masculinity and sexuality over there, which is why I want to move that way eventually.

  • michael mellor

    This is brotherly kissing.

  • Yiannis

    @Blackceo: I live in Greece and it is a lovely country, despite some problems. You should come visit again!

  • Billy Budd

    I wanna see this kind of brotherly kissing everywhere, all the time. It is a positive thing.

    Yes but a kiss by two men in some cultures/countries on the lips, or cheek, is just that, a cultural thing. To signify a greeting, goodbye, tragedy, or celebration. It should not be misconstrued as an acceptance of homosexuality.

  • Billy Budd

    Of course it is not homosexuality. But it is good for us, because it breaks barriers. If ALL couples of male friends had the habit of kissing on the mouth, homophobia would certainly diminish.
