In 2013, a French café — the Metro St. James café in Sydney, Australia — opened near St. James Station in the Sydney Central Business District. For the month of June 2013, it had a unique promotion. Couples who go to the café between 9 and 11 a.m. can get morning coffee for free — if they kiss. On the café’s Facebook page appeared this message: “We’re not accepting your money, just your kisses.” In a promotional video, a waiter tells a couple, “We’ll watch you. It has to be a real kiss … a true kiss. I can see if it is a fake kiss. I am kind of a specialist.” The couple kisses — and so do two other couples.
