You read that right, we’d like to patent a kiss. Which kiss? Any kiss. If love makes the world go ‘round, then a kiss is what fuels it.
Every year Harlequin releases the Romance Report, where we detail the comings and goings of romance from the past twelve months. Last year’s report was called Tempted. Boy, did we find out a lot about temptation! Well, this year we’ve decided to do something a little different. We’ve opened the doors to the Harlequin Office for the Preservation of the Kiss (HOPK for short) to spread the word and we’re patenting the kiss (Seriously! Check out our application here).

The HOPK’s interactive website has a unique kiss creation tool to help lovers all over the world create and share their kisses. We want to find a kiss bigger than the Butterfly, even bigger than the French! Check out the kiss that I’m busy working on right now. I’m a fan of puns, so this one’s called…wait for it: The Seine-tillating Kiss!
Now, if you’re still looking for a little data to go with your kiss, never fear: you’ll find the Romance Report in the office. For the first time ever, we’ve decided to make the report digital-only. Check out the facts right here. Here’s a sneak preview of just some of the data we’ve collected:
We hope you’ll stop by the office and help us patent the kiss. There’s even a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas to ring in the new year if you submit your kiss. I hear 2012 is going to be a good one! Keep tabs on the patent on Facebook and Twitter (@PatentYourKiss). You just never know who might drop by to patent a kiss.
