Stalking The Unexpectedly Rare Kissing Cohen Photo
Given that Leonard Cohen has, by all accounts, been and continues to be quite proficient in wooing women and that the concept of a female Cohen fan who is not eager to buss the Ladies’ Man triggers cataclysmic levels of cognitive dissonance, one would think that putting together Kissing Cohen, a collection of photos of Leonard Cohen bestowing and receiving kisses would be easily accomplished.
One would, however, be wrong.
There are relative few photos that meet criteria for this category, despite the rather generous inclusions: The Kissing Cohen classification covers all kissing modes, however lusty or chaste. Formal kisses (e.g., kisses exchanged with governmental officials), amorous kisses, polite kisses, Hollywood air kisses, salutatory cheek pecks, baby busing, … all count. Sans lip action, however, embraces, hugging, fondling, and such do not meet criteria. Kisses qualify if Mr Cohen is a mutual participant in the activity, exclusively on the receiving side of the transaction, or the bestower of a kiss on a non-reciprocating individual.

The Leonard Cohen Photo Catalogs
A recurrent motif here at Heck Of A Guy and especially at the DrHGuy site is the slicing and dicing of the Leonard Cohen photo database to create – well, let’s go with “quirky” classifications for grouping these images. Consequently, there are a few ongoing categories such as the following:
- Shades Of Leonard Cohen: Shots of Leonard Cohen and his musicians with sunglasses
- Signs Of Leonard Cohen: Leonard Cohen posters, ads, marquees, banners, promotional items, …
- L Cohen – Smokey Life: Images associated with Leonard Cohen’s history of smoking
- Leonard Cohen On Tattoos. Tattoos inspired by Leonard Cohen
And there have been any number of informal categories, resulting in posts of this sort:
- Leonard Cohen Boots Up
- Leonard Cohen – The Bracelets, Ring, and Other Accoutrements Worn In Oviedo
- The Guns Of Leonard Cohen
- Bracelets Of Leonard Cohen
- Caps, Berets, & Cowboy Hats Of Leonard Cohen
There are at least four posts that consist exclusively of photos showing Mr Cohen’s unshod feet:
- Leonard Cohen Bares All – Well, All His Feet
- Leonard Cohen Naked Foot Fetish Fix Photo
- Another Barefoot Leonard Cohen Photo
- Leonard Cohen Barefoot On The Beach
And the Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen series alone boasts an Introduction and six subcategories:
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Beds
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Furniture (Not Beds)
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Leaning
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Supplement 1
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Special Cases
- The Recumbency Of Leonard Cohen – Supplement 2
So, pick a perspective, click on the appropriate link,sand enjoy.
